Announcements

Oct 18: The Fall 2017 final exam schedule has been posted on Camlink. See below for details of the MATH 100 final exam.

Oct 12: Laura Shepherd, another MATH 100 instructor, is also teaching our Precalculus course, MATH 115, this term.  She invites and welcomes any MATH 100 students who would like a refresher on select precalculus topics to sit in on her MATH 115 classes.  She will be covering logarithms from Oct 13-20 followed by a unit on trigonometry from Oct 26-Nov 20.  Her class runs weekdays 8:30-9:20am in Y217 except for Wednesdays, which are 8:30-10:20am in Y219.

Oct 4: If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the 2017 student edition of Maple for use on your own computer running Windows, Macintosh or Linux operating systems, please visit webstore.maplesoft.com.  Using the promotion code AP291472-E2287 will reduce the retail price from 99.00 CAD to 74.25 CAD.

Sep 18: Two copies of the 11th edition of the Calculus of a Single Variable textbook by Larson and Edwards are now available on two hour reserve in the library.

Sep 13: This is a reminder that Tuesday, September 19 is the fee deadline. Students who wish to drop one or more classes must do so on or before this date or will be required to pay remaining fees.
