Optional: In case you forgot your Methods of Integration, or
Inverse functions, see my Calculus book currently used in 69.104 (also
available in the Bookstore $59.95 + GST).
The prerequisites for this course are:
Math 2000, 2454 or 2600
Students who have not passed the prerequisite courses may be automatically de-registered during the term Do get advice from the instructor or from the Mathematics Undergraduate Advisor Ken Small, in 4380 Herzberg Building.
Your grade will be calculated either as:
(i) Term Mark 40%;
(ii) Final Examination 60%
(iii) Final Examination 100%, whichever is better.
In any event, your final course grade is the larger of the two numbers: A and B where A=(i)+(ii) and B=(iii).
The term mark (40%) will be derived from:
You may use any non-programmable calculator for the examinations and tests in this course, although it is not necessary.
The Sharp 531-L is available at the Bookstore for around $19.95 + Tax.
If you decide to leave the course before the end of term, it is much better, in terms of your academic career, to formally withdraw from the course than to simply ignore it and get an F.
