The Math 123 Final Mastery Prep sessions are highly structured and efficient sessions designed to help you take your understanding of the course concepts to the next level. We’ll look at strategies for saving time and structures for minimizing computational errors; and break down the most complicated topics to make them really accessible.
Detailed descriptions of the sessions and costs are based on last semester, so are subject to change. Check back here towards the end of this semester for minor changes.
About Math 123 Final Mastery 1:
This session will focus on exam-level linear systems; multivariable optimization (Input/Output; Dual- & Non-Standard Simplex), and advanced financial math problems. Summaries of the theory will be provided in the notes; however, the session itself will focus exclusively on solving exam-level problems.
About Math 123 Final Mastery 2:
This session will focus on advanced problems in combinatorics (combinations and permutations) with special attention to their application to problems in probability. Summaries of the theory will be provided in the notes; however, familiarity with the basics of combinatorics will be assumed. We will spend ~1h on advanced problems in combinatorics and the remaining 3h on advanced problems in probability.
About Math 123 Final Mastery MOCK Exam:
The third Final Mastery Session will be a problem-solving session that brings together the material from the entire course in the form of a mock final exam. We will recreate an exam-like setting with the similar conditions so students can get a sense of where they ought to focus their studying efforts in the last days before the exam.
The session will be broken up into roughly three parts. You’ll receive the exam and will have a limited amount of time to solve the first section. The amount of time provided will be unrealistically short, to reproduce the stress experienced during the final, so the emphasis will be on identifying relevant methods and implementing them quickly. After each section, we will go over the solutions togther. Related problems will be recommended, wherever relevant, and variations on the problems will be provided for additional practice.
The sessions include detailed, typeset notes, including a total for the three sessions of >200 challenging practice problems. The notes include carefully-structured, colour-coded explanations so you can focus on understanding the material (instead of just frantically copying from the board), and you’ll have lots of time to actually attempt solving problems, to ensure that you’re able to apply your understanding to exam-level questions, and get immediate feedback. By the end of the sessions, you should feel confident about the sections you’ve mastered, and know exactly where to focus your efforts in the days leading up to the exam.
