MATH 101 - Calculus 2


Mar 5: This is a reminder that Wednesday, March 13 is the last day you can withdraw from (or switch to audit in) most Winter 2019 courses (including MATH 101).

Feb 22: The Winter 2019 final exam schedule has been posted on Camlink. See below for details of the MATH 101 final exam.

Feb 16: My regular office hours are cancelled during the Reading Break (February 19-22) due to various meetings and appointments. Please email me if you have any questions or if you wish to book an appointment to meet in person.

Feb 13: Camosun college closed today, Wednesday, February 13, for the second day in a row. The due date for Assignment 3 has therefore been postponed until tomorrow, Thursday, February 14.

Feb 11: Camosun college will be closed on Tuesday, February 12 due to the snow. As a result, the due date for Assignment 3 will now be Wednesday instead of Tuesday (assuming the college reopens on Wednesday). Upon a return to classes, we will resume coverage of sec 8.5 on partial fractions.

Feb 8: Camosun college closed at 1:30pm on Friday, resulting in the cancellation of class for section 002. A copy of lecture notes from that day is available here and should be reviewed by students from the missed class.

Feb 4: Recent light snow in Victoria reminds us of the possibility of inclement weather. In the event of severe weather conditions, the college may close. Information about college closures due to severe weather can be found here.

Jan 16: This is a reminder that Monday, January 21 is the fee deadline and the deadline for dropping classes with a full tuition refund.
