100 and MATH 180 common site (includes course outline, grading scheme,
midterm dates, homework assignments, course policies, sample
midterm and final exams, and other information)
- Instructor: Samuli Leppänen, Mathematics building 124
Email: samuli at math dot ubc dot ca;
Office hours: Tuesdays 17:00-18:30, Thursdays 17:00-18:30 in LSK300C
- Quizzes: In-class 1520 minute quizzes will be
given on the following dates, all Tuesdays: Sep. 18, Sep. 25, Oct. 2, Oct. 16, Oct. 23, Oct 30., Nov. 13., Nov. 20., Nov 27.
Quizzes are worth 7.5% of your grade; your worst quiz score will
be ignored. Calculators are not allowed on quizzes. Quizzes will
be based on the material in the WeBWorK assignment due the preceding
Thursday and the corresponding suggested problems from the text.
- Missed Quizzes or Midterms: If a quiz is missed for
a documented medical or other reason, it will be ignored, with
other quizzes reweighted to compensate for the missed quiz. In
the case of a missed midterm, permission to write a makeup midterm
or reweighting of other course components may be granted in the
following two circumstances: (a) prior notice of a valid conflict
or absence on the scheduled date; or (b) notification to the
instructor within 72 hours of absence due to medical condition.
Original written documentation, for example a doctors note
or letter from a coach, is required in all cases; otherwise,
a score of 0 will be assigned for the missed quiz or midterm.
- Quizzes with Solutions and Results
- Lecture notes
- The following list provides resources for getting help if you get stuck with a problem, alternative sources for the theory covered in class and math beyond calculus I.
- Math Learning 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 100 and MATH 180 are
available by clicking the link.
Exam Resources: This wiki, produced by Math graduate
students, provides hints, study tips, and solutions to past final
exams, and also an opportunity to dialogue with other students
and also Math graduate students through discussion pages.
Department website: There is much available under
the Undergraduates tab, including recent final exams for most
undergraduate mathematics courses.
- Visual Calculus: A collection of topics in calculus with several interactive applications. Also contains a useful pre-calculus section worth taking a look.
- The calculus section at Khan Academy: A bunch of videos covering topics relevant to our course.
- Paul's online notes: A nice set of online notes about calculus, you can download a pdf for an ebook reader.
- Wolfram Alpha: A computational knowledge engine that can evaluate all kinds of mathematical expressions. To make most of it, use it to check your answers, not to do your homework.
