MATH 103 - Integral Calculus with Applications to Life Sciences
From UBCMATH WIKI
This course in integral calculus complements technical content with applications and examples drawn primarily from life sciences. The course starts
by calculating areas and approximating the area using thin stripes as an introduction to Riemannian sums, which then lead to the
Theorem of Calculus
. Applications of integration include determining the center of mass, calculating volumes and lengths of curves. After
introducing different techniques of integration further applications are discussed in the context of continuous probability distributions as well as
differential equations. After an exploration of series and sequences the course ends with an introduction to Taylor polynomials.

you can directly access problem types that potentially appear on the ﬁnal exam.
The Math department keeps archive (https://www.math.ubc.ca/Ugrad/pastExams/) of past Math 103 ﬁnal exams.
A list of formulas that can be used for exams can be found on the formula sheet page.
