- Prerequisite: A-level Mathematics or its equivalent.
- Corequisite: MA102 or GM103. (In other words, this is for people who are currently taking a calculus course.)
- Enrichment module for MA students.
- No regular lectures/tutorials.
- 3 hours of interactive lab sessions per week.
- Based on the package Calculus
*&Mathematica*.

- Natural logarithms and exponentials.
- Instantaneous growth.
- Derivatives.
- Differential equations.

- you'll not need to know how to use
*Mathematica*. - you'll not need to have a strong background in algebra and trigonometry.
- you'll need to be open-minded enough to realize mathematics is lots more than memorized calculation procedures.
- you'll need someone else to work with least some of the time.
- you'll need the desire to learn calculus.

To learn more about this package, take a look at the home page of
Calculus*&Mathematica*.

There will be 2 groups, each group with a maximum of 25 students. All classes meet in the Statistics and Computation Lab., S14 #01-19.

GM 105 A | Dr. CHUA Seng Kiat | S13 #05-04 | 772-6898 | Tue 12 and Fri 12 | |

GM 105 B | Dr. Helmer ASLAKSEN | S14 #02-11 | 874-2746 | helmer.aslaksen@gmail.com | Wed 11 and Sat 11 |

You also have to attend one hour of tutorials each week.

A1 | Dr. CHUA | Fri 10 |

A2 | Dr. CHUA | Fri 1 |

B1 | Dr. ASLAKSEN | Wed 1 |

B2 | Dr. ASLAKSEN | Fri 11 |

The lab is also reserved for GM 105 students on Wed and Fri from 2 to 5. You can also feel free to use the lab during the times for the other tutorials.

Register by Friday, 12 July 1996. Enrollment list will be posted by Tuesday, 16 July 1996.

You will have to hand in four computer-based assignments, and there will be a pen and paper test on Sat 14/9 1-2 p.m. in LT26. The exam will also be pen and paper. The exam will count 60%, the test will count 20% and the assignments 20%.

We want you to hand in assignments every week in order to get more practice, but we will only mark four of them. The assignments are due at the first lecture of the following week, and should be handed to the instructor on a floppy. We will put example solutions on the server in a folder called S:\gm105\cm\solution.

If you want to look at the notebooks at home, you can get the mathreader program from S:\gm105\cm\mathrdr on the S drive. You also have to install the fonts from S:\gm105\cm\fonts.

To save your work, it's better to save to C:\tmp, and then copy to your floppy at the end of your session. When you want to load your from the floppy, it turns out to be faster to first copy to C:\tmp, and then open the notebook from there.
