Syllabus (pdf).

Office hours are Mondays 2:30–4:00, and Thursdays 1:30–3:00. My office is Chase Building 252; it's on a funny little half-floor, and can only be reached via the little stairs at the south end of the building.

### Exams

There will be two in-class midterm exams, worth 20% and 30% of the final grade respectively, and a final exam, to be scheduled by the registrar, worth 50%.
All exams will be multiple-choice. No calculators etc. will be allowed. The Sharp EL-243SB is permitted; no other calculators, phones, etc. are allowed.
Midterm 1 will be in class, on Wed 12 Oct, and may include any material we have covered up to Section 6.5. Practice examsolutionsactual exam (correct answers marked on grid).
Midterm 2 will be 8:00–9:30, on Wed 9 Nov, in the usual classroom, and may include any material we have covered up by Fri 4 Nov. Practice problemsactual exam (correct answers in red).
The final has been scheduled for 15:30–18:30, on Mon 19 Dec, in the Dalplex. Calculus practice problemssolutions.

### Schedule

The problems listed are optional problems for practice; do as many as you find useful. Problems marked with a * are more challenging, and will definitely not appear on the exam.
If you want feedback on any work, feel free to hand it in on a Friday for grading. I and the grader will grade as much as time allows, so please indicate any parts of your work you’d like prioritised. “Due date” for problems is the Friday following their posting; older problems (and other problems besides the suggested ones) are always still welcome, but priority will be given to the most recent posted problems.
