TMA4115 - Calculus 3, spring 2013

Solution to the exam

A solution of the exam problems (and the problems) is available on the exam problems page.

Mattelab/Exam help

The "mattelab" or exam help will be open on Friday May 31 and Monday June 3. Both days from 10:15-14:00 in S2 (Central Building 1, 1st floor.)

Here, a lecturer, a teaching assistant and student assistants will be happy to answer any questions you might have about the course before the exam.

Exam lecture

The time of the exam lecture has been changed. This is to accomodate some students which have an exam Thursday. The new time is 14:15. The date and place is unchanged.

An exam lecture will be held Thursday May 30 at *12:15* 14:15 in F1. This lecture will be held by Geir Bogfjellmo, and will cover the exam from fall 2012. The exam can be found on the exam problems page.

Exercise groups

Information about the exercise groups and information about which exercise group you belong to can be found in the spreadsheet Exercise groups.

You can also see which exercise group you belong to on ovsys.

There has been a small change in the group assignment compared to the original assignment. This only affects MTNANO and MTTK. For all other programs the group assignment is unchanged. For MTNANO group 25 and group 26 have been merged into one group (25) with supervision in room S21. For MTTK, a new group (group 32) has been created.

There has been another change, which affects MTFYMA. Group 5 has been moved from room B23 to Room 524 in Høgskoleringen 3.

Finally, we have added a group to the MTDT, so there are now five groups for MTDT-students.

Note for MTIØT students: Unfortunately there was a mix-up which resulted in a schedule conflict. We have therefore had to change the group allocation for MTIØT students. MTIØT-EMIL students should attend either group 14 or 15 Tuesdays 14:15-16:00 (please consult the spreadsheet to see which group you are assigned to), and MTIØT-DATA students should attend group 20 Thursdays 10:15-12:00.

Some students do not belong to any of the groups described in the spreadsheet. For those students: either contact the student assistant(s) of a group whose exercise sessions are scheduled at a time you may attend and ask to join his/her group, or send an email to the head student assistant (juliedb (at) and ask to be assigned to a group.
