**About the Course**

- Math 121 is an honours version of Math 101, covering mostly
the same topics but in greater foundational depth and with more
emphasis on harder and/or theoretical exercises.

Precise definitions and statements of theorems will be given. The final exam will have a certain overlap with the Math 101 exam. This will be used to normalize the final course grades in Math 121. The prerequisite for Math 121 is a grade of 68% in Math 120 or 80% in Math 100, 102, 104, 180 or 184

This text will be mainly used for practice exercises and reading assignment. Other editions than 8th edition will also work, besides having possibly different set of exercise problems.

Course Outline

- Integration (Ch. 5) (2 weeks):

- Techniques of Integration (Ch. 6: 6.1-6.3, 6.5-6.7) (2.5
weeks):

- Applications of Integration (Ch. 7: 7.1-7.6, 7.8-7.9) (2.5 weeks)
- Conics, Parametric Curves and Polar Curves (Sec. 8.2-8.6) (1.5 week)
- Sequences, Series and Power Series (Ch. 9: 9.1-9.7, 4.10) (3.5 weeks)
- Additional topics, review (1 week)

- It is very important to learn mathematics by "doing". For
example, it is not enough to read a worked out example from a
book or lecture notes. It is not enough to understand each step
in the solution. You have to struggle to work out examples or
problems by yourself, without looking at the solutions. This
way, you have to build up mathematical intuition on the subject.

**Midterm 1**: Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018. in class. 45 min.

- Midterm 2: Monday, Mar.
12, 2018. in class. 45 min.

- Final Exam: TBA.
150min.

- No calculators or other notes will be allowed!
- There are no make-up
midterms but if you miss a midterm for a legitimate reason (e.g.
illness), allowances can be made.
**To claim legitimate emergency: Instructor must be notified within 48 hrs of missed test. Doctor's notes or other relevant official documents must be present.** - Students will be required to bring Photo ID to all tests and exams.
- To ask change of the marking of your exam,
you have to follow a certain procedure. Namely, if you
have any complaint on the marking, you first study the
solution provided very carefully, and then give me a
written note to explain in detail what was wrong in the
marking. I will handle only such written notes.

Such a note should be handed in as soon as possible.

- There will be written HW (WHW)'s. Written HW (WHW)'s are due
mostly on Fridays. We will be using the Crowdmark for
collecting the HWs. More details will be provided later.

- Late homework is
**not**accepted. - Unreadable homework will get a zero mark.
- Work must be shown.
- Missed homework will count as a zero mark.
- The number of each homework problem should be clearly printed.
**Written HW (WHW): There will be total 9 written HW (WHW) assignments to be turned in, but only the best 8 will count towards your final grade.**- It is probable that only a subset of those problems turned in would be graded, and you will not be informed (in advance) which ones these are. For example, if your homework does not contain any of the problems to be graded (which will be known only after the due date), you will get zero mark. So, it would be better for you to do all the problems to be handed in.
- For the selected problems, only some important steps and the final answer will be checked.
- To ask change of the marking of your WHW, you
have to follow a certain procedure. Namely, if you have
any complaint on the marking, you first study the solution
provided very carefully, and then give me a
**written note**to explain in detail what was wrong in the marking. I will handle only such written notes. Such a note should be handed in as soon as possible.

Your grade for the course will be computed roughly as follows:

**Homework (Written HW (WHW)):** 16%

**Midterm 1:** 17%

**Midterm 2: **17 %**
Final Exam:** 50%

**Important Notes:**

**All marks are subject to scaling.**

- IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT that students know that IF THEY DO NOT FULFILL THE COURSE REQUIREMENTS DURING THE TERM (including not writing the midterm test(s) even if you agree to transfer the weight to the final) AND THEN MISS THE FINAL EXAMINATION, THEY MAY BE DEEMED INELIGIBLE FOR A DEFERRED FINAL.
