Course Outline and Objectives
MATH 110 is a twoterm, sixcredit course in differential calculus. It covers the same calculus content as the oneterm courses MATH 100, 102, 104, 180, and 184, but with additional material designed to strengthen understanding of essential precalculus topics. There is also an increased emphasis on mathematical proofs and problem solving.
 The course outline can be found here.
 For more information about the course, please visit the UBC mathematics department website here.
 Learning Objectives and additional practice problems posted on this website .
Textbook
 Calculus, Early Transcendentals by William Briggs and Lyle Cochran;
 JustInTime, Algebra and Trigonometry for Calculus by Guntram Mueller and Ronald I.Brent
Assessment and Grading Scheme
 The final grades will be calculated as follows
 5% = Skills test (September 23rd)
 15% = Assignments/In class quizzes/MathXL (5% each)
 15% = Workshops
 20% = Midterms (October 19th and Februrary 8th)
 20% = December Exam
 25% = April Exam
 There will be no makeup midterms or exams.
 Allowance for a missed Midterm Test may be granted in the following two circumstances:
 (a) prior notice of a valid, documented absence (e.g. outoftown varsity athletic commitment) on the scheduled date; or
 (b) notification to the instructor within 72 hours of absence due to medical condition.
Otherwise the score is 0. For missed Midterm Tests, original written documentation (for example a doctor’s note or letter from a coach) is required.
Academic Integrity
 Please be aware of the guideline for acceptable and nonacceptable conduct for graded assessments.
 All submitted work with your name on it should be your own work, written in your own words, regardless of whether it was done individually or as a group
 Copying someone else's solution or copying solutions found through other sources such as the web is considered as a breach in academic integrity.
UBC takes academic integrity as a very serious issue. Students found guilty of breaching these guidelines are usually given a final grade of 0 in the course, suspended from UBC for one year, and a notation made on their Transcript of Academic Record.
Midterms and Final Exam
 The midterms will be held on Wednesday October 19 and Wednesday February 8 at 6pm. (Location will be announced closer to time.)
 Each Midterm will be 90 minutes in duration.
 The December and April exams will be during the final exam period. Please do not make any travel plans before knowing the dates.
 Each Exam will be 150 minutes in duration.
 Calculators, notes and books are not allowed in the midterms or the final exam.
Assignments
 Written assignments are due on Friday of every second week (See course outline).
 You should also attempt other questions from the text as we cover each topic.
 Assignments and their solutions will be posted here after.
 Written assignments will be held to standards of writing as well as to standards of mathematics. As an example, here are solutions to an assignment from a previous calculus class.
Quizzes
 A 1015 minute inclass quiz will be held on week when there are no assignments due (See course outline).
 The quiz will consist of one or two questions very similar to those covered by MathXL and the workshop.
MathXL Homework
 MathXL Homework will be assigned weekly.
 MathXL is a valuable tool for you to practice technical questions and receive immediate feedback.
 To access MathXL, visit mathxl.com
 You will need two pieces of information to register on the website
 If it does not specify, Please register using the same name as that on the UBC SSC website. This will save a lot of hassle later in the term.
 An access code: which can be found in the textbook package

Alternative Homework:
Skills Test
 On September 23, there wiill be an in class skills test.
 It will be similar, but shorter than the Department's Basic Skills Test.
 This test is assessed on a pass/fail basis (5% for a pass, 0% for a fail).
 If you fail, there will be opportunities to make up the 5% during the year.
 The math department has some useful resources for the skills test. Additional practice material will be posted later this weekend.
 A set of practice problems can also be found Here. Note: Q6 should say 'Find the volume...'. This has been fixed on the pdf.
 More details about the results of the skills test can be found on this page.
Workshops
 Attendance is compulsory. It makes up 15% of your grades.
 It is very different from lectures. There will be a list of problems every week that you will be working on in small groups.
 Each Workshop will be lead by a Graduate and an Undergraduate Teaching assistant.
 They are introduced to give you a chance to practice what is covered during lectures as well as additional material that is not covered in lectures.
 The workshops are not a replacement for assignment and study.
