This is a pretty difficult course for a lot of first year students. This is going to be the wake up call for a lot of people.

One of the best math profs at UBC. Just look at rate my professor.

Do the CLP often. The CLP textbook contains past exam questions and detailed solutions with steps.

Comments on the course

Well structured course, but the course coordinator seemed very keen to keep the average at the historical average of ~65% despite this being an online term, unlike MATH 104, where the course coordinator decided not to scale (the course average was ~77% for MATH 104). Overall, I feel like the professors could have been more considerate. Some quizzes and assignment marks were dropped and the course was laid out quite well with a clear grading scheme, but not being able to show working for partial marks and a difficult final clearly made so that the course coordinator could scale our grades to the historical average really didn't make me feel like it was completely fair.

Advice

Try to truly understand the concepts, because the conceptual questions are the questions that they get you with. If you're taking it online, REALLY explore the tools you have and see what kind of questions you can tackle with calculators (WolframAlpha can do more than you think!)
