Differential Calculus with Applications
Announcements and documents will be posted here as they
- The final exam wasn't done as well as I'd hoped, even accounting for the fact that it was somewhat harder than the midterms. Anyone who wants to look at their exam is welcome to, but you will have to make an appointment with me to do so.
- Final grades were posted for a short time, but have now been taken down. If you need to know what you got on a particular piece of work, or how I computed your grade, send me an e-mail.
Note that I adjusted the final scores upwards, on a sliding scale (from about 1 for people in the A+ range, to about 7 for people with D's).

Homework Problems - practice work, not to be handed in
Assignments - to be handed in for feedback (and credit)
- Solutions to
Midterm 1 (corrected), and
- Grade breakdown for Midterm 1,
- Midterm formula sheet
- Errata (ie. corrections to Kochman, 3rd edition) may be found through
Kochman's webpage for his
Fall 2009 section.
Errata from earlier editions can be found through Kochman's old webpages,
eg 2007 version.
- Math student listserv,
giving math students information about upcoming club infinity events or exam sales.
- For anyone wanting help refreshing their algebra and trig, the Faculty
of Science and Engineering runs a set of math background tutorials (usually before the start of term, but sometimes during it).
Advice about what math help you can make use of is based on an on-line
The following resources are on 2 hour reserve in Steacie Library
You should have a copy of the text, along with the accompanying Student Manual and CD-ROM. If necessary, you
can get by with a copy of an earlier edition. The 2nd edition (2006) has
essentially the same content and problems (the 3rd edition mainly fixed
misprints in the 2nd edition). There is also a preliminary edition (2003),
but if you use that, be warned that the chapter and problem numbering is
different (the 2nd edition added many new problems). If anyone is trying to
work from the preliminary edition, see me for advice about problems.
- Our textbook: Single Variable Calculus: Concepts, Applications and Theory by S.O. Kochman (3rd edition, 2008)
- The student manual and CD-ROM that accompany our text (3rd edition, 2008)
- The student solutions manual for MATH 1300 (by V. Mishkin), 2nd edition, covering sections 1.2 to 3.4. There is also a solutions manual there for MATH 1310, but it is for the 1st edition of the text.
The student solutions manual is also available at the bookstore, but buying this is optional - it is
not required for the course. It is based on the 2nd edition of the text, but
can still be used easily, since the problem numbering is the same as in
the 3rd edition.
