MATH2010A - Advanced Calculus I - 2016/17
- Welcome to the course. Here is the tentative schedule (Updated): [Download file]
- No tutorial in the first week. Tutorial will start from the 2nd week.
- One correction to Homework 03: Page 3: In Step 3, for the choice of the matrix R, the element of the 2nd row and the 1st column should be +5, not -5.
- Here is a hint on Exercise 13.2, Problem 17: [Download file]
- Test 1: This is an in-class test, and the date has been fixed on October 13. Covers include all contents from Lecture 1 to Lecture 5 (the last topic of Lecture 5 is continuity of multivariable functions).
- The place for Test 1 has been changed to SC L4 with the same time: 3:30pm-4:15pm, Oct 13. You are suggested to come about 5 minutes earlier.
- To take care of your Test 1, I would set two office hours: 5:30pm-6:30pm Oct 12 and 9:00am-10:00am Oct 13. Please freely come to my office in those office hours.
- For your use, here is the list of all exercises in Chapter 14 from the textbook (Practice problems will be selected from this file) [Download file]
- Test 2: It will hold in class (Time: 5:30pm-6:15pm and place: LSB LT3) on November 15th. Covers are all contents in only Lecture 6 to Lecture 10. For this test, I would set three office hours: 3:30pm-4:30pm Nov 8th, 4:30pm-5:30pm Nov 10th, and 1:00pm-2:00pm Nov 11th. Please freely come to my office in those office hours.
- Reminder: Due to 81st Congregation for the Conferment of Bachelor's Degrees and Master's Degrees, both the lecture class and the tutorial class on Nov 17th will be suspended. In the mean time, since we have class test on Nov 15th, I also would cancel the tutorial class on Nov 15th, so two parallel tutorial sessions still will have the same pace.

Honesty in Academic Work
The Chinese University of Hong Kong places very high importance on honesty in academic work submitted by students, and adopts a policy of zero tolerance on cheating and plagiarism. Any related offence will lead to disciplinary action including termination of studies at the University. Although cases of cheating or plagiarism are rare at the University, everyone should make himself / herself familiar with the content of the following website:http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/
and thereby help avoid any practice that would not be acceptable.
