MATHS 180 - Differential Calculus with Physical Applications

- In previous years we assigned a well known calculus textbook produced by a for-profit publisher - it was perfectly adequate.
- However, for several reasons have now decided to move to several free resources.
- In particular, we have created a text - CLP calculus - specifically for the course.
- We also suggest 3 other free textbooks - you should consider these supplementary texts. Your primary text is CLP calculus.
- All are free - download links follow below.

- The textbook and problem book can be found here.
- These were written for Mathematics 100 and 180 by three UBC faculty, Joel Feldman, Andrew Rechnitzer and Elyse Yeager.
- In time the source files for the text and problem set will be released under a Creative Commons Attribution- NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License (or similar).

- Mooculus by Fowler and Snapp- download link. Their site also has links to video lectures which you might find useful.
- APEX Calculus by Hartman et al - download link. Note that you only require Volume 1 for this course.
- Active Calculus by Boelkins, Austin and Schlicker - download link.

- A free calculus text from MIT. And some lectures.
- I'll find a few more links during the term. But you can also do this.

- Be proactive! - help is not going to come to find you.
- Ask your instructor after class
- ask questions while the material is fresh in your mind

- Go to your instructor's office hours
- they are there to help you
- before the quizzes tends to be more useful than afterwards

- Go to the
**Maths Learning Centre**which is located in the Leonard S. Klinck Building (LSK) Room 300, 301 & 302.- Tutors are available, at no charge, to answer questions on a drop-in basis.
- The services starts in the second week of classes and continues until the final exam.
- Times scheduled for Maths100 and 180 are available by clicking the link.

**AMS tutoring****:**The UBC student society provides an assortment of tutoring services.**Mathematics Department website****:**There is much available under the Undergraduates tab, including recent final exams for most undergraduate mathematics courses.
