The required textbook for this course is Calculus: Early Transcendentals, second edition by Briggs and Cochran. This is the same textbook as used in Math 104 last semester and is available at the UBC Bookstore. This edition comes in three volumes, of which we will be using volumes 2 and 3. The bundle comes with access to some online resources that include a study guide and student solutions manual. Some additional course material may be provided as needed.
The section-specific coursework contitutes 10% of your total grade. Of this, 5% will count towards your clicker grade. The remaining 5% will be based on a combination of in-class quizzes and hard-copy take-home assignments, usually administered every week on a rotating basis. Quiz dates will be announced at least a week in advance on this website and in lecture as well. The take-home assignments will also appear on this website, so stay tuned. The worst quiz grade and the worst hand-in homework assignment grade will be dropped.
The clicker grades are primarily assigned based on participation, not correct answers. However, there may be some clicker sessions during the semester when bonus points will be given for getting an answer right. The worst 2 clicker grades will be dropped. For further information about clickers, see the UBC eLearning and Clicker wiki sites.
There will be an in-class quiz on Wednesday January 11, based on sections 12.1 and 12.2. Quiz 1 solutions and a grading scheme.
There will be an in-class quiz on Wednesday January 25, based on the material covered in class from Jan 13-Jan 23. Specifically, the syllabus for the quiz includes partial derivatives, critical points, various techniques of optimization (local max/min, absolute max/min on closed bounded sets, Lagrange multipliers). Quiz 2 solutions and a grading scheme.
There will be an in-class quiz on Wednesday March 7, based on differential equations, improper integrals and numerical integration. Quiz 3 solutions and a grading scheme.
