Exams and Grades: 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 ( short in class quizes).

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.

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, 6:30pm-7:30pm. Midterm 2 will take place on Thursday, November 8, 6:30pm-7:30pm. The midterm examinations are board marked (i.e. all instructors teaching this course mark the exams together) to ensure consistency and fairness across sections

Please note that grades may be scaled to ensure fairness across sections.

Practice problems: Week-by-week detailed learning goals in Math 104 and math 184 Common Page
contain a list of problems from the textbook. These are not to be turned in, but working through them will help crystallize the concepts covered in class. Not all parts of a textbook section will be emphasized equally in lectures, and these problems serve as guidelines for identifying the important and relevant parts that constitute the course syllabus. The short in class quize questions will be largely modelled on these problems.

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 to 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.
