- Assignment 2 Problem Set is now posted under Assignments and will be due at the beginning of the lecture on October 2, 2014.

- Week 2 learning goals file is now posted under Course Outline.

- Some recommended exercises for the topics of Week 2 are posted under Recommended Exercises.

- A sample midterm for Midterm 1 (and its solutions) is posted under Midterm Info.

Webworks - 10%

2 Midterms - 30% (15% each)

Final Exam - 50%

- There will be approximately 6 assignments, 5 of which will count toward the Assignments component. The worst assignment mark will be dropped.
- Assignments will be collected at the beginning of the class. Late or missed assignments will result in a mark of zero.
- Students are allowed (and encouraged) to collaborate on assignments but make sure that the work submitted is your own.

- Midterms are non-cumulative; the chapters that will be covered on each midterm will be announced in class. The final exam is based on the entire syllabus of the course.
- Student IDs must be presented at both midterms and the final examination.
- No unauthorized electronic devices will be allowed in the midterms or in the final exam. This includes calculators, cell phones, music players, and all communication devices. Students should not bring their own formula sheets or other memory aids. Common formula sheets may be provided to all students depending on the materials covered, in which case the contents of the formula sheet will be disclosed in class prior to the exam.
- If a student misses a midterm, that student shall provide a documented excuse or a mark of zero will be entered for that midterm. Examples of valid excuses are an illness which has been documented by a physician and Student Health Services, or an absence to play a varsity sport, in which case a letter from your coach should be provided. There will be no make-up midterms, and the weight of the missed midterm will be transferred to the final examination. To be eligible for this arrangement, you must notify the instructor within a week of the missed midterm with appropriate documentation for your absence. Please note that a student may not have 100% of their assessment based on the final examination. A student who has not completed a substantial portion of the term work normally shall not be admitted to the final examination.
- If a student misses a final examination, that student will need to present the situation to your faculty's Advising Office to be considered for a deferred exam. Your performance in the course up to the exam will be taken into consideration in granting a deferred exam status. For deferred exams in mathematics, students generally will write in the next available exam of the same course, which can be several months after the original exam.

- UBC takes cheating incidents very seriously. After due investigation, students found guilty of cheating on tests and examinations are usually given a final grade of 0 in the course and suspended from UBC for one year.
- Note that academic misconduct includes misrepresentating a medical excuse or other personal situation for the purposes of postponing an examination or otherwise obtaining an academic concession.
