General Information on Midterm Tests
Midterm Test Dates: Tue Feb 1 and Tue Mar 15, both during the regular lecture time, in LSK 201.
Calculators: No calculators or cell phones are allowed on the midterm tests.
Missed Midterm Tests: Allowance for a missed midterm test may be granted in the following two circumstances: (a) prior notice of a valid, documented absence (e.g. out-of-town varsity athletic commitment) on the scheduled date; or (b) notification to the instructor within 72 hours of absence due to medical condition. Otherwise the score is 0. Original written documentation (for example a doctors note or letter from a coach) is required.
Cheating: UBC takes cheating incidents very seriously. After due investigation, students found guilty of cheating on tests and exams are usually given a final grade of 0 in the course, suspended from UBC for one year, and a notation made on their Transcript of Academic Record. More information.
Scaling of marks: Term marks for this section (MT1 20%, MT2 20%, all HW 10%) will be scaled according to how this section performs on the final exam (50% of final grade in course).
