Course home page
This is the common web site for all sections of MATH 101 in Term 2 of the 2016W session (January to April 2017).
Most of the information you're looking for will be found on one of the following web pages; these links can always be found in the sidebar on the left side of the page, no matter where you are in our site.
- Individual section web pages: information specific to your section, such as time and location of classes and office hours.
- Grading scheme: the components of how you will be evaluated, and how those components will be combined into your overall grade. Short version: 10% homework, 40% quizzes, 50% final.
- Homework: web-based weekly homework assignments (WeBWorK) and suggested problems, all to get you ready for the quizzes.
- Quizzes: in-class quizzes every two weeks, to keep you caught up during the semester and as practice for the final exam.
- Final exam: covers the entire syllabus, and is worth half your overall grade.
- Missed assessment: what to do if you miss a homework, a quiz, or the final exam.
- Academic misconduct: we know you don't want to cheat; here's some information to support you.
- Helpful resources: the course textbook and other online resources.
- Syllabus, learning goals: what topics you're going to learn, what specific items you'll be learning, and when you'll be learning them.
- Helpful people: office hours and tutorial centre hours, and other helpful information, both for calculus and for life challenges in general.
- Piazza: an online discussion forum, specifically for our class.
Important note: Fok–Shuen Leung's MATH 101 section is different in some ways from the rest of the course; all the information on this common web site applies to that section, except where explicitly overridden by information on the section's web page.
Registration for MATH 101
To enroll in MATH 101, a student must have passed (or claimed credit for) one of the following prerequisite courses: MATH 100, MATH 102, MATH 104, MATH 110, MATH 111, MATH 120, MATH 180, or MATH 184. Most commonly, students who took MATH 100/180 follow up with MATH 101, while students who took MATH 102/182 or MATH 104/184 follow up with MATH 103 or MATH 105, respectively; however, this is not mandatory.
Important registration note: Individual instructors do not have the authority to sign forms to change your registration (please don't ask them). Instead, the Mathematics Department handles all requests for registration changes centrally.
