[Mandatory] Tyler Holden's notes will be the primary resource for this class. All required material is present in these notes. These notes
can be printed at home or through a printing house, but students in the past have had problems because the notes look too similar to a
traditional textbook. If you would like to purchase a printed copy of the notes, the bookstore (https://uoftbookstore.com/) has them for sale
at a reasonable price.
[Optional] Any other first year financial mathematics textbook for exercise problems. One option includes:
Introductory Mathematical Analysis, (any edition) by Haeussler, Paul, and Wood.
In particular, note that the optional text is in its 14th edition. Older versions of these books are almost identical, and significantly more
affordable. As this last textbook is entirely optional, we recommend that students not buy this textbook, or at least wait until the
second week before deciding whether or not to buy a textbook.
The end of each chapter from the notes includes exercise problems. These are designed to be practice questions specifically tailored to class
material, and you should answer them all to ensure your understanding of the material. Students are obviously free to do exercises from the
optional textbook as well. If you are ever in doubt whether an exercise problem from another source is appropriate, do not hesitate to ask your
TA in tutorial.
All emails must originate from a utoronto.ca email address, and contain [MAT133] in the beginning of the subject. Failure to adhere to these
policies will result in your email not making it through our filters, and your email will not be read. You should address any administrative
questions to the course coordinator (Tyler Holden).

Math Drop-in Sessions: Math drop-in sessions give students an opportunity to get more general assistance with the skills they need to
succeed in their math courses at UTM. These appointments are generally short and offered on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to
arrive early with specific questions in mind. The math drop-in schedule is available on the RGASC website
Booked Appointments: You can consult with a Math and Scientific Literacy Strategist about techniques for improving your learning
approaches and making them work for you so that you succeed in your courses. Strategists can also help you with lab reports, problem-solving,
and test preparation. Book an appointment through the RGASC website (https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/asc/appointments-undergraduate) .
Facilitated Study Groups: FSGs are a great way to help you improve your study skills and meet other students in your courses. Check out the
