MATH 105, Section 207, January to April 2016

Integral Calculus with Applications to Commerce and Social Sciences

All the information about the course is at the common course website.

Grading Schemes:

Your grade will be computed based on the following formula:
  • Final Exam 50%
  • 2 midterms 17% + 17% = 34%
  • Course-common WebWorks assignemts 10%
  • Weekly quizzes 5%: 2.5% for your attendance + 2.5% for your average marks (The worst mark will be dropped.)
  • Assignments 1%

    Midterm1

  • Midterm exam 1 will be held on January 28 (Thursday), from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in MATX 1100.

    Below, you find some sample midterms. I strongly suggest you to first solve problems yourself rather than reading solutions; in case you spent enough time on a problem and didn't find the solution, then open the link to solutions.

    I put more sample problems below. But note that the model for your midterm 2 is the one of the common page (the above links). I take no responsibility if the samples below are a different difficulty than the one next week.

    Math 105 Webwork site link

  • About 10 to 17 problems will be posted on WebWork as course-common homework problems every week and will be due the following week. You will need your CWL login and password to access your homework set.

    Math Learning Center (MLC)

  • The MLC is a space for undergraduate students to study math together, with friendly support from tutors, who are graduate students in the math department. The MLC is located at LSK310 and LSK302 and is open 5 days a week. Every undergraduate student studying Math is welcome here! Please note that while students are encouraged to seek help with homework, the MLC is not a place to check answers or receive solutions, rather, our aim is to aid students in becoming better learners and to develop critical thinking in a mathematical setting. For additional information please visit its website.

    Piazza

  • Piazza is a discussion board that everyone in the class is expected to join. It is a good place to ask/answer questions that you or your classmates have regarding the course/assignments, and for me to give announcements. I already sent you a link to join my section, 207, in Piazza. You can also search "Math 105 Section 207" and follow the instructions.

    Quizzes

  • There will be weekly or biweekly Quizzes to prepare you for midterms and final exam. I'll post answer keys/hints for each quiz after it is taken. After each quiz, you are strongly recommended to discuss the problems with your friends and find solutions on your own.
  • Quiz 1: Friday, 8 January: Answer Key: 1)a 2)d 3)b 4)c 5)d 6)d 7)b
  • Quiz 2: Friday, 15 January: Answer Key: 1)b 2)d 3) b 4)a 5)c 6)c 7)b 8)d 9)d 10)b Cordelia found out that the problem 4 was wrong. The inequality in choice a) has to be x^2+y^2<4:
  • Quiz 3: Friday, 22 January: Answer Key: 1)c 2)c 3)a 4)b 5)d 6)c 7)d 8)b 9)c 10)b There was a mistake in problem 3. I will give its mark to everybody: The equation was supposed to be z^2x^2=z+z^2+y^2.
  • Quiz 4: Friday, 5 February: Answer Key: 1)c 2)d 3)d 4)b 5)d 6)b 7)c 8)c
  • Quiz 5: Friday 12 February

    Assignments

    The assignments are aimed to improve your writing skills together with practicing the content of the course. Therefore, I will post solutions after the assignments are turned in so that you can compare your solutions with mine. (and in case you have a better, shorter or just different solution to a problem than mine, do not hesitate to share it with me. I then post your solution too)
  • Assignment 1 ---- Solutions .

    Assignment Policies

  • There will be 2 or 3 assignments, in total.
  • Assignments will be collected at the beginning of the class. Late or missed assignments will result in a mark of zero.
  • Students are allowed (and encouraged) to collaborate on assignments but make sure that the work submitted is your own.
