## Mathematics 121 (Honours Integral Calculus), Spring 2002

**Instructor:** I. Laba. Office: Math Annex 1225. Phone: 822 3785.
E-mail: ilaba@math.ubc.ca.

Office hours: Monday 1-2, Tuesday 3-4, Friday 1-2.

**Textbook:** R. Adams, Single Variable Calculus, 4th edition.

This is the honours version of Math 101. We will be covering essentially
the same material, but in greater foundational depth and with
emphasis on harder and/or more theoretical problems.

**Prerequisites:** A grade of 68% in Math 120 or 80% in Math 100, 102 or
104, or a score of 5 in AP Calculus AB, or permission of the Head
of the Department.

**Your course mark** will be based on the homeworks (10%),
two midterms (20% each), and the final exam (50%).
The midterms will be held in class on Wednesdays, Feb. 6 and March 6.
The date of the final examination will be announced
by the Registar later in the term. Attendance at the final
examination is required, so be careful about making other
commitments (such as travel). The final exam will have at least 50%
in common with the Math 101 final exam. **Grades may be scaled.**

Homeworks will be due every Wednesday, starting Jan. 9, except
that no homework is due on the
midterm days. If you cannot come to Wednesday's class, ask a friend
to hand in your homework, or bring it to my office by 3 PM.
The lowest two homework scores will be dropped.
You are encouraged to discuss the homework with other students,
but please write up the solutions on your own. I strongly
recommend that you get started on the homework early in the
week. If there is anything that you do not understand or would
like to see explained in more detail, do not hesitate to ask!

**Academic concession.** If you are unable to write a midterm
or hand in a homework on time, you should discuss with me how to
make up for the missed work. In the case of a midterm, you will
usually have a choice of writing a make-up test or having your
term mark calculated based on your remaining class work.
Homeworks missed for valid reasons may be handed in late, or else
they will not count towards the final grade in the course.
In order to be eligible for academic concession, you must:
- Have a legitimate reason for your absence or for not completing
your work on time (such as a medical problem or observance of a religious
holiday), and be able to provide supporting evidence (e.g., a statement
from the Student Health Service or the attending physician,
or a letter from a religious counsellor).

- Notify me as soon as possible. In particular, UBC Policy #65
requires that students who cannot attend classes or write an examination
for religious reasons must notify their instructors two weeks
in advance.
