Evaluation will consist of four components: the CRA, six (6) written assignments, four (4) term tests, and one (1) final examination.
Calculus Readiness Assessment
The Calculus Readiness Assessment (CRA) is a written test of your pre-calculus knowledge. It will be held Friday, September 21, 2018 from
1500 - 1700. The assessment is based on secondary school material (excluding calculus), and its purpose it to help you measure your
readiness for university math courses. Your mark on the CRA will count as 6% of your course mark. More information regarding the CRA --
including study resources and a practice CRA -- can be found on the CRA information page.
There will be six (6) assignments posted regularly in each academic term. As per the letter of intent -- referred to in the research
statement -- students are divided into either Group A (even student numbers) or Group B (odd student numbers). Both groups will have access
to the assignments and solutions when posted. Group A students will be required to submit their work for evaluation in the Fall term (Sept-Dec),
while Group B will be required to submit their work for evaluation in the Winter term (Jan-Apr).
Each assignment will be worth 2% of the final mark. Assignments must be printed off from the website, and solutions supplied in the provided
space. Assignments will be due via Crowdmark on the dates below:

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:
