This is the common page for all sections of MATH 101 in Term 2 of the 2010W session (January–April, 2011) . This page gives the course outline, suggested homework problems, some old exams, course policies, other course information, and information on available resources. For section-specific information, please contact your instructor.

**Course Outline****Suggested Homework****List of Sections and Websites****Past Exams****Information on the April 2011 Final Exam**

**Textbook:***Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 6th edition*or*Single Variable Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 6th edition,*both by James Stewart**Notes:**

- There are two versions of this textbook. The textbook
*Calculus*covers single-variable, multivariable, and vector calculus, while*Single Variable Calculus*covers single-variable calculus only. Both versions include all the material needed for MATH 101. - The UBC Bookstore sells a package that includes the textbook
*Calculus*, the*Student Solutions Manual for Single Variable Calculus, The Mathematics Survival Kit*(a workbook for precalculus review), and some calculus learning software, all for $168.70. See also this PowerPoint presentation supplied by the publisher that gives information about the textbook package, etc. - You
*might*be able to use the textbook*Calculus*in 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. Decisions on textbook adoptions for these courses in session 2011W will be made in the spring of 2011. MATH 200, 217, 253, 263, and 317 are using Stewart’s 6th edition in 2010W.

- 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 will be a common final exam in April for all sections of MATH 101. 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. The final exam will not generally be weighted higher for students who perform better on the final exam than they did during the term.
- At least 2/3 of the questions on the common final exam will be similar to the suggested homework problems. The final exam will be similar in content and difficulty to recent old final exams.
- After the final exam has been marked,
**term marks for each section will be scaled**so that the distribution of term marks in that 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 term 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 and 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 BC, you can claim credit (without a grade) for MATH 101. A sufficiently high score in IB Higher Level Mathematics also entitles you to claim credit for MATH 101. More information

- The prerequisite for MATH 101 is one of MATH 100, 102, 104, 180, 184 or equivalent, i.e. a university-level course in differential calculus. It is helpful to have seen differential equations (exponential growth and decay, antiderivatives) and Taylor and Maclaurin polynomials in a previous course.

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

**Math Department Tutorial Centre**: 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 101 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.**Mathematics Department website****:**There is much available under the Undergraduates tab, including recent final exams for most undergraduate mathematics courses.**AMS tutoring****:**The UBC student society provides an assortment of tutoring services.
