Evaluation: 10% Tutorial attendance
40% Tests (The best 2 tests out of 3 tests)
50% Final Exam
Tutorial Work There will be a one hour tutorial each week. Except for the three test weeks, the tutorials
will be devoted to problem solving. Please make sure to always go to the tutorial section you are
registered in.
Term Tests
There will be three 50-minute tests held in the tutorial hours on:
Oct 4, Nov 8, Nov 29.
There will be no make-up tests. Students are allowed to miss one test without penalty. In case when a
student misses more than one test due to illness (supported by a doctor note) jury duty or extreme
personal misfortune, the term mark may be pro-rated. It is each student’s responsibility to collect the
marked tests from the TA. The test papers are normally distributed in the tutorial session following the
date of the test.
Final Examination:
There will be a 3-hour exam scheduled during the usual exam period. It is the responsibility of
each student to be available at the time of the final examination. In particular, no travel plans for
the examination period in December should be made until the examination schedule is published.
Only non-programmable, non-graphing calculators for the tests and the final examination.
You are responsible for keeping up with information announced in class or sent to your connect email
account. The following course schedule is approximate, and may change subject to the progress of the
class. The material covered on each test will be announced in class one week before the test.

Math Tutorial Centre: You can study and get help from teaching assistants in the Math Tutorial centre.
It is located in HP3422 and is open Monday-Thursday 11:00am-4:00pm, and Fridays 11:30am-3:30pm.
You may also join the Math & Stats Learning Assistance Program which offers extra support for first year
mathematics courses. For more information, visit
Students with disabilities: Students with disabilities requiring academic accommodations in this course are
encouraged to contact the Paul Menton Center for Students with Disabilities (500 University Center) to complete the
necessary forms. After registering with the Center, make an appointment to meet with me in order to discuss your
needs at least two weeks before the first in-class test or CUTV midterm exam. This will allow for sufficient time to
process your request. Please note the following deadlines for submitting completed forms to the PMC for formally
scheduled exam accommodations: TBA for fall and fall/winter term courses, and TBA for winter term courses."
Academic Accommodation: You may need special arrangements to meet your academic
obligations during the term because of disability, pregnancy or religious obligations. You can
visit the Equity Services web site to view the policies and to obtain more detailed information
on academic accommodation at
Academic Accommodation: You may need special arrangements to meet your academic
obligations during the term. For an accommodation request the processes are as follows:
Pregnancy obligation: write to me with any requests for academic accommodation during the
first two weeks of class, or as soon as possible after the need for accommodation is known to
exist. For more details see the Student Guide
