Text: Robert A. Adams and Christopher Essex, Calculus: Single Variable, 8th edition
Basic information: Math 120 is the honours version of Math 100, covering mostly the same topics, but in greater foundational depth and with emphasis on solving difficult and/or theoretical problems rather than just routine exercises.
Prerequisites: MATH 12. High-school calculus and one of (a) a score of 95% or higher in BC Principles of Mathematics 12 or Pre-calculus 12; or (b) a score of 95% or higher in the BC provincial examination for Principles of Mathematics 12 or Pre-calculus 12; or (c) BC Principles of Mathematics 12 or Pre-calculus 12 with a letter of invitation from the Mathematics Department; or (d) permission from Mathematics Department Head.
Material: Below numbering refers to Adams and Essex, 8th edition.
If you need help, or would like to discuss any aspect of this course, please make an appointment to see me in my office.
Your grade for the course will be
computed roughly as follows:
There will be two midterm exams, held
midterm and final exams will be closed book. No
formula sheets or calculators will be allowed.
Missing a midterm normally results in a mark of 0. Exceptions may be granted in two cases: prior consent of the instructor or a medical emergency. In the latter case, the instructor must be notified within 48 hours of the missed test, and presented with a doctor's note immediately upon the student's return to UBC. In such cases, there will be no make-up exam. Instead, the final exam mark will be adjusted to make up for the missed midterm mark.
There will be homework collected every week (which will be posted on this web site). Late homework will not be accepted. The lowest homework grade will be dropped.
