MATH 101, Session 2010W Term 2 (JanApr 2011) Integral Calculus with Applications to Physical Sciences and Engineering
2010 12 10 15:30
This is the common page for all sections of MATH 101 in Term
2 of the 2010W session (JanuaryApril, 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.
- Textbook: Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 6th edition
or Single Variable Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 6th edition,
both by James Stewart
- 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
- 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.

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 Stewarts 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 students
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
- 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 sections
final-exam marks. These adjusted term marks will be used
to compute a students 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
AP AND IB CALCULUS SCORES
- 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
PREQUISITE FOR MATH 101
- 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 instructors 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.
Calculus website: This website, provided by the
publisher of the textbook, contains helpful supplements to the
text, including reviews of high-school material.
Department website: There is much available under
the Undergraduates tab, including recent final exams for most
undergraduate mathematics courses.
tutoring: The UBC student society provides an
assortment of tutoring services.
