MATHS 180 - Differential Calculus with Physical Applications

- Students work in small groups on a range of problems.
- The workshops are run by graduate and undergraduate Teaching Assistants.
- Attendance and participation in the workshop activities are
**mandatory**- it is 10% of your final mark!

- Your first work shop will be in week 2 of term - the week starting Monday September 12.
- Please contact Oscar Lopez, the Head TA, regarding any workshop issues and rather than your instructor.
- Students must attend the workshop they are registered for.

- actively thinking about and solving problems involving calculus
- practicing doing calculations
- interacting with peers to solve problems involving mathematics
- receiving feedback to help them identify and work on correcting possible weaknesses

- Everyone is expected to take an active role in group work.
- Latecomers may have marks deducted at the discretion of the TA.

- after reading a problem, be able to correctly state in their own words what the problem is asking and what information is given that is needed in order to solve the problem.
- after restating the problem, be able to identify which mathematical techniques and concepts are needed to find the solution.
- be able to apply those techniques and concepts and correctly perform the necessary algebraic steps to obtain a solution.

- About 75 minutes will be spent working in small groups on a range of problems, and then
- a short quiz consisting of 1 question similar to those you have just worked on in your groups.
