Here is the course information sheet.
This course consists of the study of the "epsilondelta" definition of limits and continuity; the least upper bound axiom; completeness of the real line; the intermediate value theorem; and the monotone convergence theorem. This course also provides an introduction to compactness in various forms. Infinite sequences and series are discussed from a more rigorous perspective than MATH 1211. These ideas are extended to twodimensions and to the complex numbers. Additional topics may include: elementary asymptotics; the bigOh notation; power series as generating functions; uniform convergence and uniform continuity; and Riemann sums and integration.
Classes 3 hours plus recitation 1.5 hours a week. 1 semester.
MATH 1210 and MATH 1211.
The required text is Calculus: Early Transcendentals, Fifth Edition by James Stewart (please note that we will be using the Fifth Edition). Note that some topics we will discuss are not found in the text. For such topics, the primary source of information will be lecture notes.
Your final mark will be computed using the following formula:
20% Quizzes (held during recitations) 30% Midterm (held during lecture time) 50% Exam (3hours, scheduled by the University)
Here is a list of all course marks collected so far. It does not include any identifying information. To identify which row corresponds to your marks, you need to know your mark on Quiz #1.
Here are some further details about how final marks are tabulated.
Suppose your quiz marks are q1,q2,...,q10, your midterm mark is m and your exam mark is f. Your overall quiz mark is Q=(SUM(q1,q2,...,q10)MIN(q1,q2,...,q10))/(20*9) (i.e. your worst quiz mark is thrown out.) The midterm was marked out of 45. Let M=m/45. The exam was marked out of 65. Let F=f/65. (note that bonus marks are added to your exam mark.) Your final mark in the course is MAX(20*Q+30*M+50*F, 20*Q+80*F) This mark is converted into a letter grade.
The midterm will be held on Monday, 29 October during lecture time.
Here are some notes about the midterm.
Midterm Solutions: questions p1 p2 p3 p4 p5
The final exam will be held on Monday, 10 December, 7pm10pm in SB 160.

Here is an advertisement for a weekly problem solving workshop being held by the Math & Computing Science department. If you are interested in becoming a better problem solver and/or in writing math contests (e.g. APICS contest, Putnam contest), then you are encouraged to attend. (note that this is an extracurricular workshop; it is not a component or requirement of MATH 2310)
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) offer scholarships valued at $9,000 each for students to attend a semester at the small elite Moscow Independent University. Canadian students registered in a mathematics or computer science program are eligible.
See the following for more information:
The application deadline to attend the Winter 2008 semester in Moscow is September 30, 2007.
