If you need to get ahold of me, the best way is through email: elyse@math.ubc.ca.
My office is in the Mathematics Building (behind the Koerner library), room 229F.
Mondays, 1:103:00 pm
Wednesday, 1:103:00 pm
Office hours will be in my office, Room 229F in the Mathematics Building.
I teach until 1 o'clock, so if I'm a few minutes late, hang aroundI'm on my way!

I set this course up after student request; I cannot guarantee that I will moderate, so please be friendly and kind, and discuss with each other.
Unless otherwise mentioned, you need to show your work on each problem for full marks. We want you to demonstrate to us what you understand.
Your quiz grades will make up 6% of your final grade. This portion of your grade is capped at 100%, so students who earn more than 100% on quizzes (due to bonus marks and generally being awesome) will have their grades rounded down to a measly perfect score.
If you would like your quiz to be regraded, please do not alter your quiz itself, but write a note that includes what the grading mistake is (not just which question you would like regradedplease refer to the marking scheme that is published below) and attach it. Give it to me no later than one week after quizzes have been made available at the MLC. Regraded quizes may end up with lower scores.
A number of old sample midterms are floating about on the internet. Here are some, offered as I found them. I make no claims that your midterms will be similar.

If you have questions related to your major, like which flavour of calculus you should be taking, OR if you have a major life event that might prevent you from completing the semester, you should talk to your faculty advisor.
UBC provides services to address, among other things: illness and injury, mental health and wellbeing, sexual assault (for people of all genders), other violence, discrimination and harrassment, diversity, disability, and ongoing medical considerations. If you have legal issues, you might be able to get help from the Law Students' Legal Advice Program. The Office of Equity and Inclusion is a good place to go if you want more information about maintaining an environment that is respectful, especially with regards to interculturality, LGBT*QIA status, race, students who are parents, etc. The Office of Access and Diversity provides disability support.
If something comes up during the semester that interferes with your academic progress (such as an illness, or caring for a loved one) contact your faculty advising office as soon as possible. You can find them here.
The province has an excellent website with information on mental health, including an online screening tool and resources: Here To Help. The Vancouver Access & Assessment Centre (AAC) is a point of entry for concerns about mental health and substance abuse, and they also have a call line if you just want to talk to someone. Education is a tool for a better life, from increased earning potential to a heightened appreciation for the beauty and complexity in the world. Your real life extends far beyond the boundaries of this campus. It's important that you don't let your education interfere with your physical or emotional health.
If it isn't feasible to change the thing that's bothering you, we still might be able to come up with strategies for addressing it. At the very least, you can get an explanation of why things are the way they are.
