Course documents

Basic information

This is a first-year Introduction to Integral Calculus course containing some applications to the sciences. In general, theorems will be stated precisely, mostly without proofs but with an indication of the mathematical ideas involved. The topics to be covered in this course include: antiderivatives, integration and the fundamental theorem, techniques of integration, applications (areas, volumes, arc lengths, etc.), introduction to differential equations and their applications (predator-prey systems, models for population growth, etc.), sequences and series, Taylor series.

This course is a sequel to MAT135H1. To be eligible to enrol in MAT136H1F, you must have passed MAT135H1. If you enrol in MAT136H1F without having passed MAT135H1, you will eventually be removed from MAT136H1F.

Textbook & references

Note: Throughout the academic year, it will be assumed that you have either bought the textbook (7th edition) and the Student Solutions Manual or will be able to borrow them from a friend of yours on a weekly basis.

Note that the 7th edition is not the same as the 6th edition, with many new exercises, among other changes. Of course, only the new Student Solutions Manual has the solutions to the new exercises of the 7th edition. The University Bookstore is selling the textbook and solutions manual as a package, at a special price. Buying the books separately will cost more.

Lectures

All MAT136H1F students must enrol in one Lecture section. Every Lecture section has 3 hours of lecture per week. Lectures will start on 10 September 2012. If you need to enrol in a Lecture section, or if you want to change your Lecture section, please use the SWS (Student Web Service). Do not come to the Mathematics Departmental Office. The last day to change a Lecture section is 23 September 2012. If you want to enrol in a Lecture section or change your Lecture section after the deadline of 23 September, you must go to your College Registrar to make a special request, which may or may not be granted!

The MAT136H1F lecture sections, along with instructor office hours, are as follows:

Lecture section Time Location Instructor Office hours
L0101 Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9AM SS 1087 Stephen Morgan Wednesday 11–12 (HU 1028)
L5101 Thursday 6–9PM MP 202 Zong Ying Thursday 11–12 (HU 10th-floor lounge)

Tutorials

All MAT136 students must enrol in one Tutorial section. You will have to write Quizzes in the tutorials. Note that you can only pick a Tutorial time, e.g., T0101 (Tuesday 4PM), T5201 (Thursday 5PM), etc., not the Tutorial section itself. If you need to pick a Tutorial time, or if you want to change your Tutorial time, you may do so by using the SWS, until 23 September. Note that you must attend your official Tutorial section. You should remember your Tutorial Code, e.g., Tutorial T4A (Tuesday 4PM, section A), Tutorial T4B (Tuesday 4PM, section B), Tutorial R5A (Thursday 5PM, section A), etc. You will have to write your Tutorial Code and the name of your TA on your test papers.

Tutorial rooms and TAs are as follows:

Tutorial section Time Location TA Notes
T4A Tuesday 4PM SS 2127 Jonathan Fisher Surnames A–K
T4B Tuesday 4PM SS 1085 Brad Hannigan-Daley Surnames L–Z
T5A Tuesday 5PM UC 161 Ioannis Angelopoulos
R4A Thursday 4PM GB 119 Yoe Herrera Jaramillo
R5A Thursday 5PM SS 1069 Ioannis Angelopoulos

Tutorial change is not allowed once a student has been assigned to a Tutorial section. Exceptions will be given only to those students who have a verifiable time-table conflict with another course. Such students, as well as those who need to enroll in a MAT136H1F Tutorial after the deadline, must contact the course administrator Stephen Morgan, either in person (office: HU1028) or by e-mail (listed at the bottom of this page).

The duration of each Tutorial is 50 minutes; Tutorial attendance is mandatory. Tutorials meet once a week and will start the week of 17 September. The purpose of the tutorials is to give you a chance to ask questions. If you have difficulty with the lecture material or the Problem Sets, you should ask the TA in your tutorial. Each Tutorial starts 10 minutes past the hour and ends on the hour. You must arrive at your correct tutorial room no later than 5 minutes after the start of the tutorial, i.e. no later than 15 minutes past the hour.

NOTE: If you have a lab which ends at 5PM and have a MAT136 Tutorial which starts at 5:10PM, you should make sure that you arrive at your Tutorial room on time! Your lab going overtime will NOT be accepted as an excuse for arriving late at your MAT136 Tutorial room. It may be best that you do not enrol in a MAT136 Tutorial which meets immediately after your lab.

Marking scheme

Problem sets and quizzes

Problem Sets (consisting of problems from the textbook) are given on p.7. These do not have to be submitted for marking. However, students must do these weekly problems in order to prepare themselves for the Quizzes, Term-test and the Final Exam. The purpose of the Quizzes is not to "prepare the students for the Term-test". Rather, they serve to encourage the students to do the homework problems and to come to the tutorials. Students should realize that the Quizzes give them an opportunity to earn 5 relatively easy marks. Each Quiz will consist of one to three multiple-choice question. The Quiz questions will be very similar to the questions in the Problem Sets. All Quizzes (each lasting 5 to 10 minutes) are to be written in Tutorials during the weeks indicated on p.6. Quizzes are to be written at the beginning of the tutorial (at precisely 15 minutes past the hour). If you arrive at the tutorial room later than 15 minutes past the hour, i.e., later than 5 minutes after the start of the tutorial, you will not be allowed to write the Quiz and will then get a zero for that Quiz.

Students must write their Quizzes in their official Tutorial. Anyone writing a Quiz in a wrong tutorial room will get a mark of zero. Students will be informed by their TA about the material to be covered in each Quiz. This information will also be posted on the MAT136 Website, one week before each Quiz. There will be a total of 9 Quizzes to be written, and we will count only the best 8 out of the 9 Quizzes that you write.

Term test

The Term-test will be held 24 October from 6 to 9PM. It will cover up to §7.5, ‘Techniques of integration’. The location for the test depends on your last name: if your last name begins with A–G, you will write in HA 316; H–P will write in MS 3163; and R–Z will write in WB 342. Please confirm this by consulting the official list; it is authoritative.

NOTE: You are not allowed to use any books, notes, calculators or scrap paper while writing the Quizzes, Term-test or the Final Exam.

Below are some previous term tests for this course and its predecessor. They are for review purposes only, and the material may differ from what we will have covered. All tests and exams posted here and elsewhere on the University of Toronto websites are copyrighted material of the University of Toronto. Reproduction of any of this material in any form for commercial purposes is strictly forbidden.

Make-up tests

If you believe that you cannot write the Term-test because of special reasons, you should see Stephen Morgan (the course administrator) in HU1028, to try to obtain special prior permission to skip the test. You must provide proper documentation. Such special permission will be given only for truly legitimate reasons (for example, you are on the university hockey team and have to go out of town for a competition the night of the Term-test). Permission will NOT be given for reasons such as: ‘I have been extremely busy recently because of personal reasons and do not have enough time to prepare for the test’, ‘I have three different tests on three consecutive days’, ‘I have other tests on the day of the MAT136 test (which however do not create a direct time conflict with the MAT136 test)’. Anyone who skips the Term-test without prior approval will get a zero for the test (unless absence is due to illness, properly documented). If you cannot show up for a test because of illness, you should submit your medical documentation to Stephen Morgan no later than one week after the day of the test. All students who have missed a test because of illness or any other reason deemed legitimate by the course administrator will be required to write a make-up test. Information about the make-up test (date, time, location, format, etc.) will be posted on the MAT136 Website the week after the regular test.

Math aid centres

There are various Math Aid Centres throughout the campus. The one in Sidney Smith Hall is located at SS1071. Most probably, it will start operating on 17 September. A TA for this course will be there on Thursdays from 2PM to 3PM. In addition, there will be people who can answer questions related to this material during the hours of operation will be which will be posted on the door of SS1071 and are available here. If you have Math problems, you should visit one of these Math Aid Centres, where Math tutors will be able to help you. The times when TAs specifically for the course are available will be updated later.

Administrative problems and term test conflicts

If you have a problem of an administrative nature (e.g., term-test time conflict), you should see Stephen Morgan, who is the MAT136 course administrator. His office is in HU1028. During the academic year, he will have regular office hours. If you have a term-test time conflict, you should contact Stephen Morgan in early October, to make special arrangements. Stephen Morgan's e-mail address is listed at the bottom of this page.

Note: Any e-mail message to Stephen Morgan should contain the word MAT136 in the Subject line.

When you send e-mails to S. Morgan, you should use your ****@utoronto.ca or your ****@mail.utoronto.ca e-mail account; otherwise, your e-mail may be treated as spam and deleted automatically by the Computer. If you don't have such an account, please set one up. It is free! Also, when S. Morgan sends you a reply, it will be to your ****@utoronto.ca e-mail address. You should NOT redirect your e-mail to another e-mail address (such as hotmail). Doing so usually means that the reply will never reach you!
