Announcements
Oct 31: I will have extended office hours from 11:30am-2:30pm on Wednesday, November 1 and Thursday, November 2 in advance of the second term test taking place on Friday, November 3.
Oct 31: This is a reminder that Wednesday, November 8 (formerly November 7) is the last day you can withdraw from (or switch to audit) most Fall 2017 courses including MATH 100.
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.

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 Thursday, December 14 from 1:30-4:30pm 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)
My office hours (E256) during the final exam week are Monday, December 11 - Thursday, December 14 from 12:00-1:00pm.
