MATH 1310 3.00MW (Winter 2016)
Integral Calculus with Applications
This course is the second in our standard sequence of calculus courses. It is
designed to follow MATH 1300, and is in turn followed by MATH 2310.
This course is typically taken by students in mathematics, statistics,
and computer science. Students in physics, chemistry, or engineering usually
take the parallel sequence MATH 1013/1014/2015.
In the first half, we study techniques of integration, and use these to
compute areas and volumes, and to solve physical problems. In the second
half we study infinite sequences and series.
Differential calculus, normally MATH 1300 3.00;
Students may also enter
with equivalent courses, such as MATH 1013 3.00.
MATH 1014 3.00 is a course credit exclusion. So are certain other
courses, such as MATH 1505 6.00 or MODR 1940 3.00 (Glendon)

I will try to post a notice on the course webpage if other commitments make
it necessary to reschedule one or more office hour.
If you need to see me outside these hours, you are welcome to e-mail or call
me to try to arrange an appointment.
The Math department drop-in centre is located in S525 Ross.
Variously called the Math Lab or the MathStat Lab, it is staffed with TAs
who can help you with questions from the course. The
to change, but the plan is that it will start operation by at least the
second week of classes, and will be open throughout the semester from
Monday to Friday.
I expect it will be closed during reading week.
Hours during the exam period will vary.
For those who took MATH 1300
in the fall, you should already have a text and the multi-term version of
For those who don't, the York bookstore sells a bundle that includes
the text, solution manual, and WebAssign access.
There are some cheaper alternatives, eg an electronic copy of the
text rather than a paper one. For those who own an earlier edition of the
text and who simply need WebAssign access, that can be purchased stand-alone.
Again, multi-term should be the better deal, as the same will probably be
used for MATH 2310 next year. The bookstore is supposed to have better prices
than simply purchasing via WebAssign directly.

We will cover chapters 5.3-5.5, 6, 7, 8.1-8.2, and 11.
Note that the dates given for midterms and quizzes are tentative
- 20% First midterm exam (Friday Feb 12)
- 20% Second midterm exam (Friday March 18)
- 12% Quizzes (3 in total, held Friday Jan 29, Friday Mar 4, and
Monday Mar 28)
- 13% Assignments (via WebAssign)
- 35% Final exam (3 hours, to be held during the exam period)
- Assignments are computer-graded. Quizzes will be graded by
TAs. Exams will be graded by TAs and by the instructor, with the
TAs doing more of the midterm grading, and the instructor more
of the final grading.
- You are expected to do a minimum of 3-4 hours of homework per week.
You don't learn how to do math by reading about it, or by watching
someone else do it - you learn by struggling with problems
yourself. The lectures will prepare you to do that, but the real
learning in the course takes place while working problems (and more
problems). The assigned homework is the minimum that will get you
through the course. If you find it easy, you can get away with doing
that minimum. But whenever you run up against something on the assigned
homework, that you don't understand at first,
you should follow it up by doing additional
problems from the text, on the same topic.
- To get the most out of a lecture, you should
read ahead and try some related problems beforehand. Don't fall behind,
as each week builds on the previous one.
- All assignment, quizz, and exam marks should be interpreted
as raw scores and not 'percentages'. Cutoffs will be announced for
converting midterm scores into letter grades.
- There will be no makeup midterms or quizzes.
If you miss one due to illness (with an
acceptable note from your doctor), or some other valid reason then
your final exam and other midterm will simply be counted for more.
This will be done
by calculating an equivalent score for the missing work, based
on your ranking on the final. If a makeup final examination is
necessary, there will normally be a single sitting of that exam
early in the summer.
