This is the common page for all sections of MATH 100 and MATH 180. This page gives course policies, the course outline, suggested homework problems, some old exams, other course information, and information on available resources. For section-specific information, please contact your instructor.

**UBC Calendar Description:** Derivatives of elementary
functions. Applications and modeling: graphing, optimization.

- There are two versions of this textbook. The
textbook
*Calculus 6e*covers single-variable, multivariable, and vector calculus, while the textbook*Single Variable Calculus 6e*covers single-variable calculus only. Both versions include all the material needed for MATH 100, 180, and 101. - The UBC Bookstore sells a package that includes
the textbook
*Calculus 6e*, the*Student Solutions Manual for Single Variable Calculus 6e*,*The Mathematics Survival Kit*(a workbook for precalculus review), some calculus learning software, and some supplementary review material all for $168.70. - Powerpoint slides from the publisher of the textbook.
- You
*might*be able to use (or sell) the textbook*Calculus 6e*for follow-up UBC MATH second- and third-year multivariable- and vector-calculus courses (MATH 200, 217, 226, 227, 253, 263, and 317), depending on future textbook adoptions for these courses. For the 2011W session, decisions on textbook adoptions for these courses will be made in the spring of 2011. (In this current 2010W session, the courses MATH 200, 217, 253, 263, and 317 are using Stewart's*6e*. The*Multivariable Calculus 6e*version sold in the UBC Bookstore is just the last several chapters of*Calculus 6e*bound separately.)

- Individual Mathematics instructors do not have the authority to sign forms to change your registration. Instead, the Mathematics Department handles all requests for registration changes centrally. See http://www.math.ubc.ca/Ugrad/ugradRegistration.shtml for information on how to change your MATH course registration.

- There is a
**common final examination**in December for all sections of both MATH 100 and MATH 180. This exam will account for**50%**of a student’s final grade. The remaining 50% will be based on term work; contact your instructor for details on how the term mark will be computed. - After the final exam has been marked,
**term marks for each section will be scaled**so that the distribution of term marks in the section matches the distribution of the section’s final-exam marks. These*adjusted*term marks will be used to compute a student’s final grade. This scaling is performed in order to ensure fairness of the final grades in sections whose midterm exams are harder or easier than average. **No calculators**or electronic communication devices are allowed at the final exam. Formula sheets are also not allowed.

- UBC takes cheating incidents very seriously. After due investigation, students found guilty of cheating on tests and exams are usually given a final grade of 0 in the course, suspended from UBC for one year, and a notation made on their Transcript of Academic Record. More information.

- If you have a score of 4 or 5 in AP Calculus AB, you can claim credit (without a grade) for Math 100 and continue with Math 101, Math 103, or Math 105 in Term 2. If you have an AP/AB score of 5, you are eligible for admission to a Math 121, honours integral calculus, in Term 2. A sufficiently high score on AP Calculus BC or IB Higher Level Mathematics also entitles you to claim credit for Math 101. More information.

- The prerequisites for MATH 100 are
(a) a grade of 80% or higher in BC Principles of Mathematics 12 (or equivalent) or (b) a score of 73% or higher in the BC provincial examination for Principles of Mathematics 12 or (c) a satisfactory score in the UBC Mathematics Basic Skills Test, and a passing grade in a high-school calculus
course. MATH 100 is a three-credit course, with three hours of lectures
per week, for one term.
- The prerequisite for MATH 180 is
(a) a grade of 80% or higher in BC Principles of Mathematics 12 (or equivalent) or (b) a score of 73% or higher in the BC provincial examination for Principles of Mathematics 12 or (c) a satisfactory score in the UBC Mathematics Basic Skills Test.
MATH 180 is for students who meet prerequisite (a) or (b) or (c),
and have
*not*taken or passed a high-school calculus course. MATH 180 is a four-credit course, with three hours of lectures and one 1.5-hour workshop per week, for one term. - All sections of MATH
100 and MATH 180 write the same final examination.
- More information.

- MATH 110 is a 6-credit course that runs from September to
April.
MATH 110 covers essentially the same calculus topics as MATH 100 or MATH 180,
and also includes a review of relevant precalculus topics. The MATH 110
final exam is at a comparable level to the MATH 100/180 final exam.
More information.
- If you are currently registered in MATH 100 or MATH 180 and are already having serious difficulty in early September, you may wish to consider taking MATH 110 instead. Change your registration by September 21 (contact the Mathematics Department if the online system does not let you into MATH 110).

The following resources are available for getting help in the course, in addition to your instructor’s office hours:

**Mathematics Department Tutorial Centre**(location TBA): Tutors are available, at no charge, to answer questions on a drop-in basis, starting the second week of classes and continuing through the final-exam period until the final exam. Times scheduled for MATH 100 and 180 are available by clicking the link.**Stewart Calculus website****:**This website, provided by the publisher of the textbook, contains helpful supplements to the text, including reviews of high-school material.**AMS tutoring****:**The UBC student society provides an assortment of tutoring services.**Mathematics Department website****:**There is much available under the Undergraduates tab, including recent final exams for most undergraduate mathematics courses.
