MATA36H3 Syllabus for Xiao Jie — Spring 2019

Welcome to MATA36!
Course Description:
This is the second half of a first-year Introduction to Calculus course, con-
taining some applications to the Sciences. The depth of mathematics will be
taught at the standard level accessibly to all first-year undergraduate stu-
dents, with significant emphasis on computation. In general, theorems will
be stated without proofs, but with an indication of the mathematical ideas
involved. No emphasis will be put on rigorous mathematic proofs.
Any first half of a first-year Introduction to Calculus course is acceptable,
preferably with depth taught at the standard level for first-year undergrad-
uate students.
Some examples of the course include, but is not limited to:
MATA30, MAT135; MATA31;
MATA32, MAT133; MATA29;
Note that one can only complete the second half of a first-year Introduc-
tion to Calculus course once, regardless of the depth of the courses or the
order of the courses taken.
In the event that one needs a specific course (such as MATA36) for a program
requirement as a repeat of the second half of first-year Calculus course, no
credit nor GPA will be counted for the second repeated course.

Test and Exam Question Distribution:
There will be 3 types of questions on the test/exam:
1. Easy level questions - makes up 50% of all questions on test/exam
They test for knowledge of concepts presented in the course.
The solutions would be short, with minimal ingenuity needed.
2. Medium level questions - makes up 35% of all questions on test/exam
They test for problem solving techniques presented in the course.
The solutions would be longer, and may need some ingenuity.
3. Very hard questions - makes up 15% of all questions on test/exam
They test for the ability to use the tools presented in the course, and
solve a problem that may have not been presented in the course.
Firm knowledge of the concepts presented in the course, and some
ingenuity is needed to solve the problem, which may span multiple parts.
Example: Suppose the concept tested is limits using L’hopital’s Rule:
1. Easy level question: lim
sin 3x
2. Medium level question: lim
3. Very hard question: Given k0, compute L= lim
(1 + kx)1/x
(Answer depends on k:L= 1 for k1, L=kfor k > 1)
Tutorials and Weekly Quizzes:
Tutorials begin the 2nd week of class (week of Jan 14).
Tutorials are mandatory, and there will be weekly quizzes starting the
3rd week of class, held during the last 15 minutes of tutorial. You must
know your tutorial number and attend your registered tutorial on ACORN.
Going to the incorrect tutorial section will most likely result in a mark of 0.
There are a total of 10 quizzes in the semester.
2 of the 10 quiz marks will be dropped at the end of the semester.
8 of your highest quiz marks will be averaged into 20% for final mark.
Any missed quiz, due to any reason, justifiable or not, will be graded as
0 (and will be one of the two grades that will get dropped).

There will be weekly homework. The questions will be posted on Quercus
every Monday, starting with the 2nd Monday (Jan 14). You would have one
week to finish the homework. Then during the week that follows, the quiz
will be one question exactly from the homework given in the previous
week, or a slight variation.
It is not necessary to do all homework questions. You should do
enough to make sure you would be comfortable if a similar problem is pre-
sented to you.
Office Hours and Math Aid Center:
The instructor and TAs will have office hours in Math Aid Center.
Location: IC 404.
(Take elevator to the 4th floor, room is on the right.)
Office hours will start during the 2nd week of class. The office hour schedule
will be announced during the 1st week of class.
Missed Test/Exam:
There is no make up midterm test. If you miss the midterm due to a legiti-
mate reason, your midterm grades will be shifted to the final. If you miss the
midterm, you must notify your intructor and submit acceptable documen-
tation within a week of the test. If the reason is medical, an official UTSC
medical form should be downloaded from:
If no notification is received, you will most likely receive a mark of 0.
All exam deferrals are handled by the registrar. You must submit your
petition to your registrar, and they’ll determine whether your reasons are
acceptable. The registrar will arrange for a make up exam for you in the
following term. Your deferred exam will not be written by me, but by the
instructor at the time your deferred is exam is arranged, and will be the
same exam written by everyone else who is taking MATA36 at that time. It
is your responsibility to learn the material taught in MATA36 during that
term, as the materials taught may be different than this term.

Academic Integrity:
In the event that you are caught cheating on quiz/test/exam, you may be
subject to one or more of the following:
1. Get a warning from the TA/instructor.
(Typical for mild offence, with no past history of academic offence.)
2. Get a mark deduction or a mark of 0 for the quiz/test/exam.
(Typical for severe offence, or with a history of academic offence.)
3. Get reported to the Office of Academic Integrity.
(Typical for severe offence on test/exam.)
Once reported to the Office of Academic Integrity, a formal proce-
dure will be followed, and the instructor is no longer in control. In the
event that the academic offence is confirmed by the Office of Academic
Integrity, a flag will be put on your transcript, lasting 1 to 5 years.
Once an investigation starts at the Office of Academic Integrity, you
are no longer able to drop the course. When the investigation finishes,
and the academic offence is confirmed, you would still not be able to
drop the course. All course work is still required from the student, and
will be graded as usual, while the investigation is in progress.
In all scenario, you have the right to dispute your situation with the
Office of Academic Integrity.
