The accompanying custom Student Solutions Manual is also required, as is a supplementary text, the 3rd edition of Just-In-Time Algebra and Trigonometry for Calculus by Mueller and Brent. All of these resources may be purchased as a package from the UBC Bookstore.

Math 110 is a two-term course in differential calculus with additional material designed to strengthen understanding of essential pre-calculus topics. In addition to regular lectures, students in MATH 110 are assigned to workshop sections which meet weekly under the guidance of graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants. Workshops will consist of problem-solving sessions, projects and quizzes. They are an integral part of the course, and attendance is mandatory.
You can find the course outline here. It contains some useful information about the different components of the course, the grading scheme and and a weekly schedule which contains an approximative breakdown of topics and some important dates, such as final exams and midterms. Please discard what the outline says about homework, I'm following my own schedule which you can check on the homework page.
