- Exam aids: 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.
- 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). 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 your instructor of your
failure to take the test within a week of the missed midterm, and come
up with a timeline acceptable to both for producing 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
the final examination.
- Missing the Final Exam: You will need to present
your situation to your faculty's Advising Office 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 (for instance, failing badly
normally means you will not be granted a deferred exam). For deferred
exams in mathematics, students generally sit the next available exam for
the course they are taking, which could be several months after the
original exam was scheduled.
- Please bring your student ID-s to both midterms and the final.
Considerate Behavior and Cheating: Talking in class is disruptive to
others trying to concentrate on the lecture. Violators may be asked to sit
separately or leave the class. Cheating on tests will not be tolerated. Any
cheating will immediately be reported the head of the Mathematics
Department for disciplinary action. Cheaters are often caught and the usual
punishment is a 0 in the course, expulsion from the University for 1 year, no
transferability for courses taken at another institution while under
suspension and a notation on your transcript of the suspension due to
cheating. Finally, it is considered inappropriate in any course to bring
friends or other students not registered in the course into the lectures
without first obtaining permission of the instructor.
