FAQ about Tutorials in this course
There will be NO TUTORIALS this week, Sept.9-13; tutorials will begin
next week, Sept. 16.
Tutorials are scheduled for Tuesdays, 0930 hrs., in the following locations:
Tutorial 1: Students whose family names begin with the letters A-Eh... 403 Southam Hall
Tutorial 2: Students whose family names begin with the letters Eh-L... 406 Southam Hall
Tutorial 3: Students whose family names begin with the letters M-She... 311 Steacie Bldg
Tutorial 4: Students whose family names begin with the letters Shi-Y... 312 Steacie Bldg
Tutorial 5: TBA
We will try to arrange common group tests on tutorial days; For example a single test
will be handed in by a group of 4 or 5 students all of whose name will appear on the
answer sheet(s)...the test will be graded by the TA and then returned to the students
involved one week later. Please note that these tests will have no impact upon
your final grades.
Notes for the week, Sept. 9-13, 1996
No additional notes for today, Monday;
Don't forget to purchase your ABC's of Calculus...copies are available in my office
4250 Herzberg at a price of $12, net.
Notes for the week, Sept. 16-20, 1996 I noticed that many among you
had difficulty with Problem 4 in your first tutorial. I've posted the answers below...Just
click on the problems whose solutions you want to see:
Tutorial 1: Problems 2, 3 and part of 4
Tutorial 1: Problem 4
Apologies to Lynx-based readers...but you do need a browser to see these
solutions...Well, you could save them locally to your hard drive/diskette and then view
them with Netscape (without Internet software) or some other photo/viewing software
which can read GIF format (Corel Draw, Adobe, Paint Shop Pro, Micrografx Picture
Nevertheless, I have succumbed to internal pressures and have decided to post Solutions
to Tutorial 1 within the glass casing just outside the Mathematics Tutorial Center,
(Herzberg 4385) as of Friday, Sept. 20, 3:30 p.m.
This week you should remember that, most importantly, the study of Calculus is one that
needs to be nurtured...the more you do, the more relaxed you will be about doing problems
in this course. Among the topics we covered, the applications of the Chain Rule to
differentiation of trigonometric and exponential functions are central to your
