Resources by Course

This is the workspace for contributors to the Math Exam Resources wiki at UBC, formerly run by grad students of the UBC math department but now maintained by undergrad students (as of September 2015). To get involved, contact one of the committee members listed below and see our new Contributors Guide for instructions and resources.

Most recent question that was moved over: 2212007WT2(sec201) Q6 @539 (We're back to normal now - thanks Bernhard!)

Notes: Lots of 221 have been moved now! We've moved all of 307!!!

Everything @860 and over has been moved (Many are for midterms) With the exception of the problem* listed below. Only <400 more to go =)

April 2013 is done just needs hints and checking (I think the answers are in the exam file as well).

December 2012 is missing 5b-d, hints, and review.

April 2012 misses 6 parts of problems. Hints needed as well but Piazza content is done.

April 2006 exam is off Piazza. It needs hints and 5 more solutions (one is a 4 part problem).

Problem: Which question does @43 belong to? It does not seem to be 2005 WT1 Q2 as claimed...

Problem*: Where is this 2013 WT2 Final exam they speak of? Eg. @915? Same with @326-@339

Resources by Topic

  • Caution is needed when working through problems on the same topic from a different course. While problems are often applicable cross-courses, sometimes questions from a particular course require a technique that was not covered in another course, even though both courses covered the same general topic.
