All relevant information across all sections is in the main Web page for the course.
The grading scheme and the textbook & problem book can be found there.

There exists the Maths Learning Centre (MLC) in Leonards S. Klinck (LSK) building, room 301 & 302. There you will find an army of TA (between three to six) willing to help students with their doubts. Please, try the exercises by your own before going there since the demand for TA time is high, the time supplied from TA is relatively short per students (about ten to fifteen minutes). The MLC is a space for undergraduate students to study math together, with friendly support from tutors, who are graduate and upper-year undergraduate students in the math department. The MLC is located at LSK301 and LSK302 and is open 5 days a week from 11am-5pm. Every undergraduate student studying Math is welcome here!

Logbook for the section.
Here is the course book we are following.

Written Assignments (roughly biweekly). All assignments are focused on exposition of ideas rather than on maths content (that is Webwork for). Short arguments should be given in the main steps of the solution. You don't need to make an essay out of the assignment, but an assignment containing only formulae, even if they make sense, sall receive a mark of zero (0).
Please remember to write your name or preferred name and student number.
To pick up your assignments, you will need to go to the MLC (see above for information of the MLC) with your student ID and two things: (1) under no circumstances you do not have the right to access the drawers where the assignments are guarded and (2) you cannot ask for other students' assignments, doing so would violate UBC Privacy Information Policy.

  1. First assignment. Notice the hand-in date for Wed, Sept 20th.
  2. Second assignment. Notice that the hand-in date is for next Wednesday, Sept 27th and not for Oct 4th. This is because Oct 4th is the first midterm and you need to practice at least another written assignment.
  3. Third assignment. Notice that the hand-in date is for Wed, Oct 18th. Solution.
  4. Fourth assignment. Notice that the hand-in date is for Wed, Oct 25th until 17:00hrs.

Policy for the midterms.
To be announced. The only disclosable information is that it will be in class time (50 minutes), so likely you won't have time to try out the exercises during the midterm and you will need to know how to solve them in advance. Study all the available material. Here it is the official midterm one policy.

More material for you to practice.
