Announcement
 See the MATH1010 main course webpage and the MATH1010ABCDEF Blackboard page for more information. (Note: The MATH1010F Blackboard page is not used.)
 There is no tutorial on Thursday, September 7, 2023.
 For the optional review test on September 7 (Thursday) from 5pm to 7pm, please go to the WeBWork system and login with your Student ID and OnePass Password. Please email Gary if you are unable to access the WeBWork system.
 [20230914] The tutorial classes will start today (Thursday 5:30pm6:15pm, YIA LT8).
 [20230914] The first WeBWorK coursework exercise is now available online.
 [20230914] There is an optional class (First Year Mathematics Honours Scheme) organized by the math department to help firstyear students prepare for MATH courses at the 1000 and 2000 level. You may check the website for more information.
 [20230919] I have made some minor mistakes in the proof for lim_{x>0} (e^x1)/x in the lecture: We should first establish the inequality involving x^2, x^3, x^4 etc. and then the inequality involving 3!, 4! etc. The mistakes have been fixed in the uploaded Lecture 5 PDF (see page 56).
 For HW 1 submission, please visit the blackboard site 2023R1 University Mathematics (MATH1010ABCDEF) > Gradescope. (

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.
