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.
