Hope you had a great summer. I look forward to another chance to teach this course.

This is an Honours level course that both covers the material of MATH 221 and MATH 152 but adds some theoretical material. The grading standards (for me) are roughly those of MATH 221 and so some judicious scaling will be used. It will be substantially more work than MATH 221 but hopefully much more interesting.

Please note that this course cannot be taken for credit if you have already taken MATH 221 or MATH 152.

The first midterm is October 7. You will get a break with Thanksgiving.

I will be putting many course materials on the web in pdf format to supplement the text. The text has some excellent explanations but note that the problems tend to be much too elementary.

The notes look authoritative when typed so be wary. They may look perfect but may still contain errors! I don't have an editor.

I arrive most days by 9:00. I will typically be available after class in my office MATH ANNEX 1114 at 11 each day. I will have an office hour 4:30-5:30 on Thursdays in MATH ANNEX 1118 (near my office) and imagine many assignments will be due Fridays. Other office hours will be available. I do not reliably read my email from home (i.e. evenings and weekends) nor every hour at work.

Various Notes. Often for material not in text or at least not in the order we follow.

The Math Learning Centre (or MLC for short) is a space for undergraduate students to study math together, with friendly support from tutors, who are graduate and undergraduate students in the math department. The MLC is located at LSK301 and LSK302 and is open 5 days a week 11am-6pm starting September 14th. Every undergraduate student studying Math is welcome here! In the MLC, students may join the study groups if students wish so. Please note that while students are encouraged to seek help with homework, the MLC is not a place to check answers or receive solutions, rather, our aim is to aid students in becoming better learners and to develop critical thinking in a mathematical setting.
