•A 3-hour ﬁnal examination will be held during the exam period, covering the entire course. DO
NOT schedule ﬂights or other departures during the exam period until the dates are known.
•Tutorials are compulsory. TA’s will provide interactive practice problems which everyone needs to
attempt. You are encouraged to work in groups, and only one solution paper needs to be submitted.
Tutorials are one of the best opportunities for learning, and form an integral part of understanding
and preparation for the ﬁnal exam. The listed Tutorial Compendium is a proven reference for
students: It is a record of all tutorial questions and solutions you may face throughout the term.
•Assignments are comprehensive: They are challenging, thorough, and encourage learning, in an
eﬀort to prepare you for the ﬁnal exam. Assignments will be due at the beginning of tutorials on the
above speciﬁed dates. We suggest you DO NOT have others hand in your assignment papers, since
each student is responsible for their own submission. You may work together, but it is imperative
that you understand the solutions you present.
•Tests will be held during tutorials on the above speciﬁed dates. Only the best number of tests
(speciﬁed above) will be counted, and no make up tests will be oﬀered. No explanation is needed for
a missed test, but you are strongly advised to write every test in order to properly prepare yourself
for the ﬁnal exam.
•Any uncollected marked works (such as tests, assignmnets, and tutorial papers) will be destroyed
after the ﬁnal exam. Any issues with term grades must be addressed before the ﬁnal exam.
Conduct and Content Policies
•Incidents of cheating will be dealt with in a formal fashion. All suspected incidents and supporting
documentation will be forwarded to The Oﬃce of The Dean of Science.
•This course uses cuLearn. Additional content will be posted and announced to all students. In the
event of class cancellation by the instructor, lecture notes will be posted on cuLearn in lieu of lecture.
All supplementary content related to course material is testable.
•All classroom teaching and learning activities (lectures and tutorials), and cuLearn content is
COPYRIGHTED. Students are encouraged to take notes and make copies of course materials
for their own educational use. However, students are NOT PERMITTED to snap pics, record
lectures, share ﬁles, etc., or distribute content in any way without permission.
•Email is a formal route of communication, and should have a reasonable expectation of response in
4-7 days. Twitter is an informal and non-sensitive route of communication with a general expectation
of a much quicker response. DO NOT use Twitter to solicit a faster email response. Please note that
emails pertaining to questions clearly addressed in this outline, and repeat emails, might not garner
a response. Instead an announcement Tweet might be made. Critically important information will
be sent out via email.
•Students with disabilities requiring academic accommodations in this course must register with the
Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities (PMC) for a formal evaluation of disability-related
needs, and have a Letter of Accommodation sent to the Instructor by their Coordinator. Students
entitled to accommodation must conﬁrm their need with the Instructor before the ﬁrst test or as-
signment. If you require accommodations only for the ﬁnal exam, you must request accommodations
by the last oﬃcial day to withdraw from classes.
•Accommodations for other reasons such as religious obligation, or parental leave, will be done only in
accordance with University policy. These policies are administered by the oﬃce of Equity Services.
