  • MAS 105 (25.105) College Mathematics (3:1:3)

    Winter 2011

    (On-line version; On-campus students should use a different version)

    Instructor : Professor Jinhyun Park

    l Office : Natural Sciences E6-1 Room 4402

    l email:

    l Telephone : T. 2734 (Outside of KAIST (042) 350-2734)

    Classes : Pre-recorded Fall 2010 classes will be offered to the students.

    Teaching Assistant : Jinhyung Park ( ) (NOT the same person as the instructor!)

    This is the first mathematics course at KAIST taken by the first-year undergraduate students who enter in the Fall 2010 as well as some of the admitted prospective students who enter in the Spring 2011. This course is a rigorous introduction to calculus that emphasizes calculations, examples, and solid definitions and some proofs of various mathematical statements. By going slow-paced, students in this course are expected to achieve deeper understanding of calculus, mathematics, and logic in general than the regular Calculus I, which is rather sketchy and dense in its presentation.

    Students in this course will continue with Calculus I.

    Since the materials contained are sometimes repetitions of highschool level mathematics, we will concentrate more on some newer materials. There will be lots of assignments (though not graded), and all students, even those who (mistakenly) think they know the material well, are strongly encouraged to try the problems with patience. This process will help you to survive through the year until the end of Calculus II.

    Course Language : Classes and recitations will be in English. Exams are also expected to be written in English.

    Textbook : Weir, Hass, “Thomas' Calculus, Early transcendentals, 12th Edition” Pearson (2009), ISBN 978-0-321-58876-0 (QA303.2.W45 2009)

    Grading policy : Total = 500 points (Final 500)

    Homework/Quiz : We assign homework problems, but you don't have to submit your answers. However we suggest you to try these, and ask questions. The TA's will answer them if you have difficulties. All of them are going to be posted on the course website.

    Attendance : Apparently, there is no checking of attendance.

    Others : Cheating is absolutely unacceptable at the examination. Any attempt could result in serious consequences, not limited to immediate failing of the course.
