Exercise Sheets

Weekly problem sets will be posted on myCourses and their solutions will be covered during

the tutorials. You are strongly encouraged to attempt all of the problems by yourself before

showing up to the tutorial, as no one shall pass a university level math course without working

through a signiﬁcant amount of exercises !

Need Help ?

The course has weekly tutorials, which you are already signed up for. You are expected to

attend.

The Departmental Helpdesk, located in BURN 911, is also available to you, as well as FrezCa,

located on the 5th ﬂoor of the Schulich Library.

All instructors and TAs shall post some oﬃce hours on myCourses. You are strongly encouraged

to visit them during those time slots for any question regarding the course material. If your

instructor or TA’s schedule does not match yours, you may go and see any other instructor/TA.

Policies

In accord with McGill University’s Charter of Students’ Rights, students in this course have the

right to submit in English or in French any written work that is to be graded.

McGill University values academic integrity. Therefore all students must understand the meaning

and consequences of cheating, plagiarism and other academic oﬀenses under the code of student

conduct and disciplinary procedures (see www.mcgill.ca/integrity for more information).

No calculators or smarter devices will be allowed during the quizzes or the Final Exam.

You must attend the quiz of the tutorial section that you were assigned to, unless a spe-
