Differential Calculus with Physical Applications
Announcements:

Dec 21: Grades now available on the SSC. Also, here is the solution to the last question on the final exam in which you were asked to show that there are always at least two antipodal points on the equator of the Earth with the same temperature.

Dec 17: Dear Students, this is the end of MATH 180:104 but only the very beginning of a long and beautiful story of mathematics. I hope I could share some of my passion for this subject with you.
Your marks will be be released on the SSC shortly. Thank you for a great semester! I wish you happy holidays and please stay in touch: maxim[at]math.ubc.ca. I'd love to hear from you every now and then. Maxim

Dropin tutoring: Stuck on a problem? Come to my office hours or seek help in the dropin tutoring center. Don't expect the tutors to do the homework for you though or you will get sent away emptyhanded.
Workshops: Click here for information about workshops and solutions.
Homework: Is posted on the course website every Thursday and will be due the following Thursday in class. There are mandatory and suggested problems. Many final exam, midterm and quiz questions will be based on the list of suggested problems. A missed homework for anything different than a documented medical reason will receive a score of 0. There will be approximately 12 homework sets. The lowest homework score will be dropped.
Quizzes: There will be a 10 minute quiz every Thursday at the end of the lecture. The tested material will come straight from the list of suggested homework problems. If you understand the homework, this will be nothing but bonus marks for you. The lowest quiz score will be dropped.
Midterms: There will be two midterms in this course. Their dates are Tuesday, October 5th and Tuesday, November 9th. There are no makeup midterms during the term. If you miss a midterm for a documented valid excuse (for example an illness which has been documented by a physician), the weight of that midterm will be transferred to the final exam. In any other circumstance a score of 0 will be given.
The Final: The final exam for this course will be a "block final", meaning that all sections of Math 180 and Math 100 will take the same exam. Past exams can be found here. A final review session will be scheduled closer to the end of the term.
Grading scheme: Final exam 50%, workshops 10%, each midterm 15%, homework 5%, quizzes 5%.
Calculators: No calculators or electronic communication devices are allowed at the midterms or final exam. Formula sheets are also not allowed.
