This is the page for information specific to section 206. See the course-wide website for details on assessment, homework, textbooks, quizzes, course policies, learning objectives, and the like.

- Classes: MWF 14:00-15:00, MATH 100
- See the Lecture-by-lecture schedule for pre-class reading information, worksheets and more.
- There are two kinds of homework:
- On-line homework
- Off-line homework is not for submission, but doing as many problems as possible is essential for success in the course (if you are using Stewart's book, use these problems instead.

- Quizzes are held on alternative Fridays (marked in red on the table below).
- Each quiz after the first covers two weeks of material (quiz 2 covers weeks 2-3, quiz 3 covers weeks 4-5 and so on). See the coordination table to see what the relevant material is.
- To prepare for quizzes you should do the online and offline homework. To prepare for the required speed you should go back and solve past quizzes while timing yourself.
- Marked quizzes will be available for pickup at the Math Learning Centre on the Thursday morning following the quiz.
- Regrade requests are due by the next quiz day; they must be based either on an addition error by the marker or on the relevant marking scheme, in which case you must attach a filled form to your quiz when giving it to me.

- The Math Learning Centre is open Monday through Friday.
- Here are some Common Errors in Undergraduate Mathematics. Avoiding these common pitfalls will improve your grade measurably.

- The final exam will be held on Monday, April 18th between 15:30-18:00.
- See the main course page on instructions, including regarding the location and the assigned seat scheme we are using.
- You should practice doing past final exams (exams from Math 103,105 are also useful), as well
as using the practice final.
- The topics covered in our course are not identical year-to-year, so past exams include problems on topics we haven't covered, and may not include problems on topics we have covered.
- After some revising, it is essential to do at least one such exam
(including the practice final)
*under exam conditions*: reserve 2.5 hours and work on the exam in a quiet room without using prohibited resources (notes/textbooks/calculators/friends/internet). - We don't post official solutions to exams. That said, some solutions (and hints!) are available on the Math Exam Resources Wiki. Also, the Undergraduate Math Club sells solutions to some past exams.

- I will hold special office hours next week: Tuesday, 10:00-11:00, Wednesday 11:00-12:30, Thursday 11:00-12:30.

Ahead of each class you **must** read the relevant section from a
textbook of your choice. The "reference" section numbers are from the
course notes; for
section numbers in other textbooks see the coordination table.

*Warning 1: the "weeks" below are course weeks, not calendar weeks.*
