Announcements
We will keep announcements for MAT137 on Quercus only. By default, you should receive an email every time we post a new announcement on Quercus.
We will post all course materials (problem sets, tutorial worksheets, info about tests, videos, schedules...) here on this website.
Lectures, tutorials, and office hours resume on Monday, January 7.

Office hours and contact info
Do you need help? Do you have questions? Do you want to talk to us? We encourage you to talk to any of the instructors or TAs in the course, not just your own. Our email addresses are below the calendar.
Locations and times for our office hours are likely to change during the year and on certain weeks. Always check the calendar below for the most up-to-date information.
For feedback on your proof writing, visit the proof clinic at the hours below.

Videos
We are creating short youtube videos that explain many of the concepts in the course. We expect you to watch these videos before coming to class. Your instructor will tell you what to watch for each day. If you come to lecture without having watched them, you won't get much out of it.
Pro-tip: The videos are hosted on YouTube. Like other YouTube videos, you can adjust their playback speeds to your preference.
Lecture and tutorial questions
To see the questions you worked on during lecture, see your section-specific page under the 'Resources' tab.
To see the questions you worked on during tutorial, see the 'Tutorials' tab.

- Section 4.7: All problems in this section are good. Do as many as you think you need to be comfortable with related-rates.
Many of these problems are computational. One of your goals is to compute derivatives quickly and without error. Depending how close or far you are to that goal, choose to do fewer or more of the problems we suggest.
- Playlist 4: Inverse functions and inverse trigonometric functions
- 8 videos
Note: The beginning of this playlist may appear unnecessarily complicated. The notions of codomain, range, and inverse are normally treated in a much simpler way in calculus. However, this causes confusion when you later encounter them in other math or CS courses. Thus, I have explained these concepts in the most general way first, before explaining the simplification we will be using in calculus.

Tutorials
If there is a discrepancy between Quercus and ACORN, your correct tutorial is the one on Quercus. I have created "groups" on Quercus for each tutorial. To join a tutorial or to switch tutorials, simply change groups on Quercus, and ignore whatever ACORN says.
Unlike for lectures, you may only attend the tutorial section you are enrolled in.
List of TAs and Tutorial Rooms.
What is your tutorial? How to change/enrol in a tutorial?
- Access MAT137 on Quercus.
- Click on "People".
- Choose the "Groups" tab
- Now you can see what your tutorial is. You may join a tutorial if you do not have one, and you may switch tutorials.
- Ignore whatever ACORN says.
For more details, see here.

- Email from your utoronto email account.
- Use the subject line "MAT137 - Test N - Regrade request".
- In the body of the email, include your full name, your student number, your utoronto email address, a link to your graded paper, and a clear explanation of the error your think we made. We will not reply to any request that does not include this information.
Do not include any attachments or screenshots.
- Keep in mind that we may re-read the whole paper, and your grade may go up or down.
Deadlines:
- Test 1:
