Review Handout

Here assembled for you is a list of tutoring opportunities and study resources such as past exams. In particular, we want to point out the Great Hall of the TILT building, where office hours and tutoring will be held. Please come study with us!

Welcome! Living organisms grow, reproduce, and move around. They c h a n g e. With Calculus, we will study the nature of this change and quantify it by asking questions such as How fast it it changing ? How much ? and Into what ? Biological examples motivate mathematical concepts, which in turn lead us to ask new questions about biology. Math 155 is a math course, but one that is also a science course.

Office Hours are held in the Great Hall of the TILT Building .
You are welcome to come to the office hours of any instructor.
Here is the schedule.
