Your worst term test will be weighted at 6%, with all other term tests worth 12%. If you have a conflict with a term test, you must inform the
course coordinator (Tyler Holden) within the first two weeks of term.
Missing a Term Test
If you are forced to miss a term test because of an illness or other extenuating circumstance, you must alert the course coordinator Tyler
Holden within 24 hours of the term test, and provide supporting documentation no later than one week after the term test. In particular, the
university has very precise procedures regarding documentation of sick notes (http://illnessverification.utoronto.ca/) , and a form for
Sick notes should be uploaded to the MCS server (http://mcs.utm.utoronto.ca/medical133) , at which point you must show the course
coordinator (Tyler Holden) an original copy of the note. You will be permitted to keep your sick note once it has been shown to the coordinator.
Failure to adhere to any of these policies will result in your term test being assigned a grade of zero (0).
Students granted an exemption will have their marking scheme adjusted as follows:
One Exempted Test: The other three term tests will be reweighted to 12% each, with a 46% final exam.
Two or More Exempted Tests: Each written test will be worth 12%, with the weight from all missed tests reallocated to the final exam.
The final examination will take place during the April 2019 examination period and will be three (3) hours long. It will be cumulative, covering all
materials covered in the lectures, tutorials, and assigned work.
6 % CRA + 12 % Assignments + 42% Term Tests + 40% Final Exam.
The course website is located on Quercus (http://q.utoronto.ca) . All announcements, documents, tutorial problems, and online quizzes can be
found there. It is the student's responsibility to check the course website regularly for new announcements.
[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.
The textbook errata can be found here, and final answers are here .
[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).
The student is responsible for being familiar with all aspects of academic integrity (http://www.utm.utoronto.ca/academic-integrity/office-dean-
