9 December 2010: There will be a formula sheet for the exam; it is included in the practice exam. You will not be required to state or prove theorems. See the practice exam to get an idea of the kind of problems you should expect to see.

8 Deember 2010: For your reference, here are solutions to Midterm 2.

6 December 2010: A practice final exam is available here. This will be discussed during the review session on Dec 13.

29 November 2010: Two events for your calendar. The Science Society is hosting an "Exam Survival" evening on Dec 1, 19:00-20:30 in MDCL1305. Professors in first year courses will be giving tips on how to succeed in exams. There will be a review session for Math 1A on Monday, Dec 13, 16:30-18:30 in CNH 104. The Math 1A final exam is on Dec 16, 19:30-22:30. Check your personal exam timetable on line, as some exams scheduled in IWC have been relocated to DBAC.

29 November 2010: There seems to be some ambiguity in Q4 of the Week 11 Homework assignment. There are two different regions which satsify the description of the area that you need to calculate. To fix the choice, take "the region enclosed by the curves y = cos x, y = cos(x - c), and x = 0" to be the region to the right of the line x=0. Take "the region enclosed by the curves y = cos(x - c), x = π, and y = 0" t be the region to the left of the line x=\pi.

23 November 2010: Jizhan will be holding his office hours (in the Math Help Centre) on Thursday 6:30-8:30 pm this week.

23 November 2010: As announced in class, your final grade will be calculated as the better of the mark given by the original distribution and the mark you get with the final counting for 85% of the total. So if you have not done as well on the midterms as you would like, don't give up hope! But you do need to work out what went wrong on the midterms so that you can do better on the final.

16 November 2010: I have disabled the link below. Here is a new link to the marks, which should now be up-to-date.

15 November 2010: Correction to the correction below. This morning, I see nothing worng with the file.

14 November 2010: Correction: I think I confused the two columns for the midterm marks. The column labelled Midterm1 has the Midterm 2 marks and vice versa. I will post a corrected version on Monday.

14 November 2010: Marks for Midterm 2 and Assignment 2 are posted here. Remember that you can collect your midterm and assignment from the Math Help Centre. The marks are sorted by the last five digits of your student ID number. Columns 2 and 3 have the assignment marks out of 8 and 10 respectively; Colums 4 and 5 have the two midterm marks out of 50. Assignment and Midterm Marks

4 November 2010: There will be a review session in preparation for Midterm 2. Monday 8 November 6:00-8:00pm in MDCL 1105. Daniela will work through the practice midterm and answer related questions. A practice exam is available here: practice midterm 2. You should not assume that the actual midterm will have the same number or arrangement of problems, nor that it covers exactly the same material. This practice exam is intended only to give you an idea of what the midterm will look like.

1 November 2010: Here is a list of formulas that you should know for the upcoming midterm. The midterm is Thursday 11 November, 7:00-8:30 pm. If you have a scheduled class which meets at that time, send an email to your instructor with your name, student id number and the number of the conflicting course. We must receive this email by 5pm on Tuesday, 9 October. You will be able to take the test on Thursday at 5-6:30 pm; you will be informed of the room by email. If you have some other reason to wish to reschedule, you must speak with your instructor personally (and do not be too optimistic).

Your test room is assigned based on the alphabetical listing of your last (family) name. ATTENTION: this is different from the room assignments for the last test!

-- if your family name lies in the range: A-- H then go to BSB 147

-- if your family name lies in the range: I -- L then go to BSB / B136

-- if your family name lies in the range: M -- R then go to MDCL 1102

-- if your family name lies in the range: S -- V then go to MDCL/1105

-- if your family name lies in the range: W -- Z then go to MDCL/1110

The midterm will cover sections 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.7, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 of the textbook.

25 October 2010: Starting this week, the weekly homework on WebAssign will be due on Wednesdays, rather than Tuesdays. This change is because sections 2 and 3 will finish the material for that week on the Monday, and need time to work on the assignment.

25 October 2010: solutions to Midterm 1

19 October 2010: Corrected marks up until Monday, 18 October are posted here. (X indicates an excused absence has been received from the dean's office.) All requests to review the marking on Midterm 1 and Assignment 1 must be recevied by Friday, 22 October. Requests after that date will be denied.

12 October 2010: Finally! marks for Midterm 1 and Assignment 1 are posted here. Remember that you can collect your midterm and assignment from the Math Help Centre. The marks are sorted by the last five digits of your student ID number. The second column is the assignment mark out of 8; the third column is the midterm mark out of 50. Assignment 1 and Midterm 1 Marks

1 October 2010: The Math Help Centre is running a review session in preparation for the first midterm. Monday 4 October 6:00-8:00pm in MDCL 1105. Daniela will work through the practice midterm and answer related questions.

28 September 2010: MIDTERM arrangements. Midterm 1 is on Thursday, 7 October, 7:00-8:30 pm. If you have a scheduled class which meets at that time, then send an email to your instructor with your name, student id number and the number of the conflicting course. We must receive this email by 5pm on Tuesday, 5 October. You will be able to take the test on Thursday at 5-6:30 pm; you will be informed of the room by email. If you have some other reason to wish to reschedule, you must speak with your instructor personally (and do not be too optimistic).

Your test room is assigned based on the alphabetical listing of your last (family) name.

The exam will cover the following sections of the textbook: 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 Further, you need to know the following theoretical statements:

the fundamental theorem of calculus, parts 1 and 2

the limit definition of the derivative

precise statements of rules for differentiating

the Riemann sum definition of the definite integral

A practice exam is available here: practice midterm 1. You should not assume that the actual midterm will have the same number or arrangement of problems, nor that it covers exactly the same material. This practice exam is intended only to give you an idea of what the midterm will look like.

27 September 2010: Homework to be handed in at the end of this week (or beginning of next). Come to tutorial prepared by looking at the problems ahead of time. Jizhan will discuss what a complete solution should look like. Finish the problems right after tutorial, and hand in your solutions to the assignments lockers on the gorund floor of Hamilton Hall. Homework is due on the day of the tutorial that you attend.

27 September 2010: All students should now have a textbook and WebAssign registration. The last day for receiving an extension on the Diagnostic and Homework 1 is Tuesday 28 September. Contact your instructor immediately if you still have a problem with your registration.

24 September 2010: Jizhan's office hours in the Math Help Centre are Tuesdays 6:30--8:30 in the evening.

19 September 2010: Apparently, the bookstore is again, or still, out of textbooks. If you have not been able to get registered on WebAssign by the due dates, contact your instructor to get an extension on the Diagnostic and Homework 1.

13 September 2010: Rumour has it that the bookstore has run out of textbooks. The due date of the diagnostic is therefore moved to midnight on Sunday, 19 September, so that hopefully you have the chance to buy your books and register for WebAssign.

9 September 2010: The class keys listed in the course outline were incorrect. Here are the correct class keys:

Section 1 (D. Haskell) mcmaster 4328 3369

Section 2 (J. Marikova) mcmaster 8141 8071

Section 3 (L. Barto) mcmaster 6235 8091

My apologies for the mistake.

9 September 2010: The dates for the midterms as given in the course outline are correct, however the DAYS are stated incorrectly. Both midterms are on THURSDAYs, 7 October and 11 November.

8 September 2010: Welcome to Math 1A03 Fall 2010. A powerpoint presentation explaining how to register on WebAssign is available here (courtesy of the publisher). Take the Diagnostic this weekend, and use it to decide what material to review from your Grade 12 notes or the first three chapters of Stewart.

6 August 2010: Classes begin on 9 September 2010. Enjoy the rest of the summer, while reading the Math Review Manual.
