Mathematics 101, Section 101

(Honours) Integral Calculus

Department of Mathematics Undergraduate Math courses University of British Columbia

This is an honours version of Math 101, covering mostly the same topics, but in greater depth and with more emphasis on harder exercises. Some precise definitions and statements of theorems will be given, but only limited theoretical facility will be expected of students.

Prerequisite: A grade of 5 in AP Calculus AB or 75% on the Calculus Challenge exam. Registration is only possible through the Mathematics department. For registration please email or phone 604-822-2666.
