20 April 2018 Such
a long time since I posted anything! Here is practice
final exam, and here
are the solutions. The review session will be Monday April 23,
10:0012:00 in JHEA102. This will be free from  come with
questions and I will answer them.
4 March 2018 Here is a practice midterm for your entertainment. Solutions will come eventually.
4 February 2018 Midterms are marked and will be
handed back in class on Monday. Homework assignments
(below and on WebAssign) have been updated.
30 January 2018 Solutions
to practice midterm.
29 January 2018 Here are some recommended practice
problems to prepare for the midterm. They are taken
from the Review problems for Cha 11, starting on p.
784.
Concept Check: 1, 2, 3a, 4, 5a,e,f, 6, 7c, 8a,b, 9,
10a,b,c, 11, 12,
Exercises: 3, 5, 27, 41, 45, 47, 49, 55, 59
29 January 2018 The upcoming midterm will cover
sections 11.1, 11.2, 11.5, 11.6 (not the root test),
11.8, 11.9, 11.10. You must know definitions
and statements of theorems precisely  an intuition
about what the definitions mean is useful, but is
not good enough. Go through the book, write down the
definitions and memorise them! You do not need to
memorise the Taylor series for any particular
function, but you do need to memorise the
general formula for the Taylor series for the
function f around a.
24 January 2018 Adrienne's and Marco's office hours
posted above. First midterm for the winter semester
coming up on Friday, February 2 at 11:30. It
will be in room T13 125. A number of people have
reasons why this time is awkward for them. I will
therefore have an alternate seating of the exam the
day before, Thursday Feb 1 3:304:20. If you want to
take the exam at the alternate time, please speak to
me explaining your reasons and also send me an
email. I can manage a limited number of people for
the alternate time; please let me know by Friday Jan
26th if you want to make use of this chance.

Essay
topics
Here is the list
of who has signed up for which topic. You are welcome to
discuss your topic with the other people who have chosen
the same one. You might also ask each other to read and
advise on your essays. Those of you who do not yet have a
topic should choose one!
Essay grading rubric: the essay will be marked out
of 10 points (with a possible extra credit point),
distributed as follows.
2/10 for correct grammar, reasonable
length, appropriate formatting, relevant references (any
referencing style will do)
2/10 for being
interesting/engaging/making the topic accessible
2/10 for the degree of clarity of the
mathematics
2/10 for the degree of correctness of
the mathematics
2/10 for the degree of difficulty of
the mathematics (with an extra credit point for a really
difficult topic)
If anyone wants to learn LaTex (mathematical typesetting
program), you can talk with me or the TAs. The following
samples were written by Matthew Jordan to illustrate the
vast superiority of LaTex over Word for writing
mathematics (or anything for that matter, in my opinion).
