the course outline, suggested problems, course policies, other course
information, and information on available resources.
There will be common weekly webwork assignments, and these can be
accessed on this page. For section specific assignments and information
please go to your own section site linked at the bottom of the page.
There will be three examinations (two midterm exams and one final
exam), and the exams will be common to all sections of MATH 104/184. See
the information below for examination dates. For sectionspecific
information, please contact your instructor.

You are free to use a
different edition of the Briggs and Cochran textbook. Note that there may
be differences in page number references and problem numbering between
different editions. It is up to you to deal with any such potential
inconsistencies if you use a different edtition of the text. Chapter 2 As of September
11, 2012 the UBC bookstore does not have the latest version of the text in
stock. The bookstore is planning to order more copies, and the above link
to a pdf of Chapter 2 has been provided by the publisher for your

instructor for the password.)

Grading schemes
MATH 104: Your grade normally will be computed based on the following
formula: 50% Final Exam + 30% 2 Midterms + 15% Webwork Homework + 5%
other(section specific).
MATH 184: Your grade normally will be computed based on the following
formula: 50% Final Exam + 25% 2 Midterms + 10% Math 184 Workshops + 10%
Webwork Homework + 5% other (section specific).
There will be two
coursewide surveys, one in September and one in November. If you complete
these surveys, the lowest 2 homework marks will be dropped from your grade
calculation..
Examinations
 THE FINAL EXAM for this course will be common to all sections
of MATH 104/184. The exam will take place in December at a date to be
announced. The final examination is board marked (i.e. all instructors
teaching this course mark the exams together) to ensure consistency and
fairness across sections. Calculators will not be allowed in the final
exam.
 THE MIDTERM EXAMS for this course will be common to all
sections of MATH 104/184. Midterm 1 will take place on Thursday, October
4, 6:30pm7:20pm. Midterm 2 will take place on Thursday, November 8,
6:30pm7:20pm. The midterm examinations are board marked (i.e. all
instructors teaching this course mark the exams together) to ensure
consistency and fairness across sections. CALCULATORS WILL NOT BE
ALLOWED FOR THE MIDTERMS.

Course policies
 The mark distribution for section specific term work may be scaled
based on exam mark distributions of that section. These adjusted term
marks would then be used to compute a student's final grade. Any scaling
is performed to ensure fairness in the final grades across sections. It
is not expected that such scalings would result in significant grade
changes.
 No electronic devices will be allowed at the final examination. This
includes calculators, cell phones, music players, and all other such
devices. Formula sheets and other memory aids will not be allowed.
 Missing midterms: 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 (your coach will provide you with a letter). In
the case of illness, the physicians note must contain the statement that
``this student was/is physically unfit to attend the examination on the
scheduled date". There will be no makeup midterms, and the weight
of the missed midterm will be transferred to the final examination.
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.
 Missing the Final Exam: You will need to present your situation to
the Dean's Office of your Faculty to be considered for a deferred exam.
See the Calendar for detailed regulations. Your performance in a course up
to the exam is taken into consideration in granting a deferred exam
status (e.g. failing badly generally means you won't be granted a
deferred exam). In Mathematics, generally students sit the next
available exam for the course they are taking, which could be several
months after the original exam was scheduled.
 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. More information.
 Note that academic misconduct includes misrepresenting a medical
excuse or other personal situation for the purposes of postponing an
examination or quiz or otherwise obtaining an academic concession.

Webwork online homework
MATH104 Webwork site Link:
MATH184 Webwork site Link: Use your CWL to login to
do your weekly online homework problem sets (some users have experienced
difficulties when using Firefox to access Webwork. If this happens to you,
please try to use another web browser) Due dates: Webwork assignments
will be posted on Mondays, and due 9 days later on Tuesday at 8:00am
(Webwork 0 is an exception to this post/due date schedule) Note that
the intent of homework is to help you learn the material, and therefore it
should be done as you are studying.

MATH 184 Workshops
Students in MATH 184 are required to attend a weekly 1.5 hour workshop in
addtion to the lecture portion of the course. The workshop portion of MATH
184 is valued at 10% of your final grade. More information about these
workshops can be found here.

Extra help
Each instructor will hold a few (23) office hours per week for
students in his/her section of MATH 104 or MATH 184.
Dropin Tutorials: There is a dropin tutorial centre in LSK 301/302. Graduate student
TAs are there to help you during specified times starting Monday,
September 13th.
The AMS offers tutoring services.
