Labs: You are required to register in a lab. Labs take place once every two weeks, beginning on the second or third week of classes, depending on which lab-section you are in. Lab assignments will be due in class every two weeks. More information available here.

• Lab #1, due Tuesday September 28th
• Lab #2, due Tuesday October 12th
• Lab #3, due Tuesday October 26th
• Lab #4, due Tuesday November 9th
• Lab #5, due Tuesday November 23rd
• Lab #6, due Thursday December 2nd, available here

Grading Scheme: Final exam 50%; midterms 30% (2 midterms worth 15% each); homework 10%; labs 10% (note that all grades may be subject to scaling at the end of the semester).

Final Exam: The final exam is on December 15th at 8:30AM, in OSBO A. It will be common for all Math 102 students. We will enforce a 40% passing threshold, meaning that if you do not achieve a grade of 40% or more on the final exam, you will not be allowed to pass. You will be allowed to use a calculator on the final exam. You will also be given the following formula sheet.

Practice exams:

Midterms: The first midterm will be on October 7th, 6:30pm-7:30pm in MATX 1100. The second midterm will be on November 9th, 6:00PM - 7:00PM in SCRF 100, and will cover up to chapter 8 (with focus on chapters 5, 6, 7, and 8).
Practise for midterm 1:

Practise for midterm 2:

Missed Quizzes and Midterms: If an assignment is missed for a documented medical or other acceptable reason, it will be ignored. Allowance for a missed midterm may be granted in the following two circumstances: (a) prior notice of a valid, documented absence (e.g. out-of-town varsity athletic commitment) on the scheduled date; or (b) notification to the instructor within 72 hours of absence due to medical condition. Original written documentation, for example a doctor’s note or letter from a coach, is required; otherwise, a score of 0 will be given for the missed assignment or midterm.

Drop-in Tutorials: The mathematics department runs a free drop-in tutorial centre staffed by teaching assistants, all of whom are capable of answering your calculus questions. The centre is located in the Auditorium Annex A rooms 143, 144, 145 and 146. For more details, go here.

Resources:

• Fun with Secant & Tangent lines
• Two solutions to a problem presented in class on Oct 12th.
• Extra optimization problems (with solutions) here.
• Solutions to a collection of problems that I gave in class on November 4th. (CAUTION! There are a couple of typos: the solution to question two should be 40/30 not 40/30^2. As well, in my solution to question 3, I should have written y' = 2(8-b^2)+ 2b(-2b). This changes the critical points a little bit.)
• Solutions to the first midterm
• Solutions to the second midterm
