Lecture Notes

In case they prove helpful, on D2L ( I have posted copies of lecture notes and voice-over video lessons that I created to support online learning during the early days of COVID-19. The materials are still fairly current, having changed little since then.

Final Exam

The MATH 100 final exam will be a comprehensive, three-hour exam and it will take place sometime during the final exam period.

You must write the final exam at the scheduled time as per Camosun College's policy on final examinations.

Precalculus Review Material

The math department has created a MATH 100 Readiness Check document. This guide, which includes practice questions (with answers), is intended to help you decide whether you are ready for MATH 100 or whether you should first consider upgrading your math skills by taking the precalculus course MATH 115.

Laura Shepherd has created a MATH 115 Student Guide that describes in detail the content and learning outcomes of the MATH 115 (Precalculus) course. You should be familiar with the topics from MATH 115 before attempting MATH 100.

Susie Wieler has prepared a precalculus review page at with practice questions. To access the site, use the Course ID 109818 and Enrollment Key camosun.

Besides chapter P of our textbook, which we will go over in class, the textbook includes an online Appendix C - Precalculus Review section, which covers a few select algebra topics such as real numbers, inequalities, absolute value, distance and midpoint formulas, circles, and completing the square.
