New Calculus Streams

Should I enrol in MATH 106/107 or MATH 126/127?

We have two separate streams of first-year calculus. The primary difference between the two streams is the number of hours of class time each week.

  • MATH 126 (Calculus I, Fall and MATH 127 (Calculus II, Winter)

    These two courses have the usual 3 contact hours per week with the instructor, and an additional one-hour lab every other week. This stream offers calculus at the traditional pace, and is designed for students who have a strong pre-calculus (or high school calculus) background, and who would prefer a faster pace.
  • MATH 106 (Calculus I, Fall) and MATH 107 (Calculus II, Winter)

    These two courses have 4 contact hours per week with the instructor, and an additional one-hour lab/tutorial per week. The extra time allows for a slower pace, more in-class examples, and problem sessions with the instructor to provide additional time for guided practice. The courses are designed for those students who may have a weaker pre-calculus foundation, or who may benefit from the extra time and slower pace.
