Phone: 822 2450.
Office hours: Mon 3-4, Fri 11-12, and by appointment. I will also be available
for a few minutes after each class.
General information for all sections of Math 100
is posted on the Math 100 common page. Please familiarize
yourself with it. The additional information and policies posted here are
specific to Sections 103 and 105.
Your course mark will be based on the homeworks (10%),
two midterms (20% each), and the final exam (50%).
Grades will be scaled as explained on the common web page.
Both midterms and the final exam will be strictly closed-book:
no formula sheets, calculators, or other aids will be allowed.
Academic concession. Missing a midterm, or handing in a homework
after the due date, will normally result in a mark of 0.
Exceptions may be granted in two cases: prior consent of the
instructor, or a medical emergency. Supporting documentation
(e.g. a doctor's note) will be required.
If your request for academic concession is approved,
your course mark will be based on your remaining coursework (in the
case of a missed midterm, this usually means 10% homework, 30% the other midterm,
60% final exam).
- The midterms will be held in class on Wednesdays, October
3 and November 7.
- The final examination will be scheduled by the Registar later
in the term. Attendance at the final
examination is required, so be careful about making other
commitments (such as travel).
- 7 homework assignments will be collected and graded. They will
be due on Wednesdays,
September 19, 26, October 17, 24, 31, November 14, 21. Each assignment
will be announced at least a week in advance and posted
on the homework web page.
The homework part of your course mark will be based on your best 5 scores.
