Math 109 Winter 2015


Please note that the schedule for the final week will be a bit different, as follows:
On Wednesday 3/11, in class 11-11:50am Professor Rogalski will talk about some of the other courses in the math major you can take now that you have taken Math 109.
On Wednesday 3/11, Jay Cummings will have an additional office hour 2-3pm. Professor Rogalski will also have his usual 3-4pm office hour.
On Thursday 3/12, Jay Cummings' 10-11am office hour will be held as usual, but Scott Fernandez's 12:30-1:30pm office hour will not be held.
On Thursday 3/12, Scott Fernandez will hold a review session 4-5:50pm in WLH 2208.
On Friday 3/13, Jay Cummings will hold a review in class 11-11:50am (104 Peterson as always). Please bring specific questions (for instance about past homework) for the TA's to their review sessions.
On Monday 3/16, our final exam is 11:30am-2:30pm in Peterson 104. It covers all of the material we covered in class and all homeworks (including the material on HW 10 which is not to be handed in). Please bring a blue book and your UCSD ID. I am not posting a practice exam because it is more important for you to go over old homeworks and go through problems you did not understand the first time. The exam will be roughly like two midterms in length.
