MATH 101, Session 2010W Term 2 (Jan–Apr 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 (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.

Textbook: Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 6th edition or Single Variable Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 6th edition, both by James Stewart
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.



  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. No calculators or electronic communication devices are allowed at the final exam. Formula sheets are also not allowed.
