"The calculus is the greatest aid we have to the application
of physical truth in the broadest sense of the word."
- W. F. Osgood (1864 - 1943)

As was the case in MATH 1280, there will be an assignment after each class, due just before the following class (or tutorial). They will have to be submitted on a standard assignment sheet.
The assignments must be handed in at your tutorials, at the beginning. On those Fridays when there is no tutorial quiz, take your assignment to the Learning Centre (Room 119) in the Chase Building.
There are two tutorials per week (Mondays and Wednesday), and three tutorials in alternating weeks when the biweekly quizzes are written. Attendance is mandatory for tutorials and classes.
Six one-hour quizzes will be written during the term. The five best quizzes count towards the final grade. There will be no make-up quizzes. If you miss one for any reason, the remaining five will count. A two-hour final exam will be written during the exam period. While each quiz covers only material from the previous weeks, the final is comprehensive and covers material from the whole term.
The dates for the Quizzes are:
The final exam (2 hours) will be on Wednesday, April 11, 8:30 a.m. (Location TBA).
You can find the calendar entry here.
This one-semester course is the direct continuation of MATH 1280 from the Fall term.
