100:102 Differential Calculus with Applications to Physical Sciences and Engineering

winter term 2018 (September–December)

Important updates

  • The final exam was on DEC 04 2018 08:30 AM in MATH 100. The use of calculators, lecture notes, formulæ sheets or any other aids was NOT allowed in this exam.
  • The solutions and grades of the midterm exam can be found here.

Pro tips for doing well

  • Do the WeBWorK assignments throughout the week and not just on Fridays
  • Work on questions from the CLP problem book without looking at the answers first
  • Form a study group
  • Read the CLP textbook alongside your lecture notes
  • Come to class prepared and ask questions
  • Ask and answer (!) questions on Piazza
  • When you are ready, look at past final exams

Where to get help

  • Ask questions in class: if you have a question, somebody probably wants to ask the same question
  • Ask your friends
  • Ask questions on Piazza
  • Come to my office hours
  • Go to the MLC

I also encourage you to check out Elyse Yeager's excellent webpage, where you can find videos, lecture notes, general advice and helpful comments about what you are supposed to be doing. Please note however, that the assessment information there is for a past lecture course; there are no quizzes in our course.

Things to you should have done by now

  • Familiarize yourself with the common course page. Here you should find all the information you need. In particular, make sure you understand the assessment information for this course.
  • Familiarize yourself with the MATH 100 Canvas page.
  • Find the Piazza link on Canvas. This is an online forum where you can discuss questions with your fellow students. There is also a dedicated Piazza teaching assistant (TA) who can help.
  • Have a look at the CLP textbook and problem book.
  • Find the links to your WeBWorK assignments on Canvas. Always access your assignments through Canvas, otherwise they might not appear on your Canvas record!
  • Do the diagnostics test through WeBWorK. (Again, follow the link from the assignments page on Canvas.) This test will give you a chance to get feedback about your preparedness for the course.
