Maple Labs
All Maple Labs take place in E115. Go there instead of the usual classroom on the lab dates indicated below. You will be provided with copies of the lab worksheets. Be sure to complete the pre-lab (except in the case of Lab 0, which has no pre-lab) before going to the computer lab. Note that we will be omitting Lab 3.

Final Exam
The MATH 100 final exam will be a comprehensive, three hour exam and it will take place on Monday, December 17 from 8:30-11:30am in Fisher 334/336/338. You must write the final exam at the scheduled time as per Camosun College's policy on final examinations.
The following sets of final exam review questions were prepared by Stan Toporowski, former Camosun MATH 100 instructor. They may prove useful as yet another source of practice problems:
- Review questions 1 (with answers)
- Review questions 2 (with answers)
