139 Quiz 4

McGill Math 139 Quiz 4 Prep:

Update: the session is now full & registration has been closed.

This Thursday we’ll meet for ~2h (starting at 7pm) to run through a ton of problems to prep you for the last quiz. Space is limited and registration is first-come, first-served. The session will be $25 if you RSVP, $30 at the door (though I don’t expect there will be room).

McGill Math 122 Calculus for Management Fall 2014 Final

They’re here: the best final review & prep sessions for MATH 122 Calculus for Management Students at McGill! We don’t run a “crash course” aimed at helping you just scrape by, we run mastery sessions that assume you’re familiar with the basics, and so aim to help you understand the subtleties that come up in advanced, exam-level applications so you can understand and succeed. Space is limited, registration is first-come, first-served. Additional dates will be added if there is sufficient interest. See below for descriptions of each of the sessions and information about available discounts.

Mastery 1:  Tuesday Nov. 25th, 6-9pm ($60*)

In this three hour session, we’ll review the application of derivatives to consumer and producer surplus; the optimization of various systems modelled using a single variable; related rates of time-dependent systems, linear-approximation, and the basics of curve-sketching. Each of these sections has a few fairly representative types of problems which, if mastered, will prepare you for related material on your final. Additional practice problems will be provided so that you can get lots of practice with these types of questions well before the exam. *Discounts available, see below for details.

Mastery 2:  Friday Nov. 28th, 5:30-8:30pm ($60*)

In this second three hour session, we’ll look at exam-level questions requiring implicit differentiation (tangent lines; second derivatives, and in combination with related rates). We’ll also practice dealing with advanced derivatives (logarithmic differentiation; general-exponential differentiation; advanced chain-rule with product rule etc); the limit-definition of the derivative; limits themselves – especially as applied to full curve-sketching questions. Additional practice problems, representative of exam-level material will be provided for additional practice. *Discounts available, see below for details.

Mastery 3:  Friday Dec. 5th, 5:30-8:30pm ($60*)

In this third three hour session, we’ll take your integration skills to the next level; helping you identify the correct method of integration and how to approach every integral systematically. Then, we’ll look a large sampling of exam-level improper integrals, including a list of ”classic” questions that you should know how to solve. Finally, we’ll solve some advanced area & volume-of-revolution questions. As with all the other sessions, additional practice problems will be provided. *Discounts available, see below for details.

Mastery 4:  Saturday Dec. 6th, 4:30-7:30pm ($60*)

This last session will attempt to recreate some of the stress you experience during the exam by limiting the amount of time you have to solve challenging questions from all the topics of the class, presented as they would be in your exam. Emphasis will be placed on efficient strategies, pattern recognition and identifying your weakest points so that you can focus your studying most effectively in the last days before your final. The session will follow the form of a past final and variations on those problems will be provided for additional practice. *Discounts available, see below for details.
