  • Overview

    Course outline:
    This course only begins in week 7 and is intended for students who have been advised to transfer to this course after initially registering for MAM1000W (see entry for MAM1000W). It places an emphasis on the strengthening of foundational concepts and skills, the carefully-paced introduction of new material, and the development of sound approaches to effective learning. Note that MAM1005H + MAM1006H is equivalent to MAM1000W in level, credit value and as prerequisite for certain other courses.
    The aim of this course is to introduce the topics in the first half of MAM1000W at a slower pace. This course starts in the 2nd quarter. Topics covered include differential and integral calculus of functions of one variable.
