Web page: http://www.math.ubc.ca/~steph/442/442.html

Office hours: Mon 10-11am, Thur 4-5pm, 15 mins just after class, and by appointment (not Wednesday). You can also email me anytime.

Final exam, Monday 24th April.

Calculators, books, notes etc are not permitted in either exam. Please bring your student ID to both exams.

Please note that there are no make-up or alternate exams, so make
sure you do not make travel plans, work plans etc that will
conflict. Valid documentation must be provided within 72 hrs if
any consideration is to be taken for a missed midterm.

Since this is a *Mathematics Majors *course, there is a
median grade of around 68% and students will be expected to
perform calculations and construct rigorous proofs involving
fundamental ideas of the course.

- maximum benefit from a homework problem if you work hard on it
alone before combining your ideas with someone else's,

- no benefit from one person just telling another how to do a problem.

**In particular, you may not simply copy someone else's homework
and turn it in as your own. **Similarly, copying solutions
that you might find on the web or from some other source is
illegal.

These will all be treated as a violation of UBC's** Academic
Integrity
Code.** We take academic integrity very seriously and
will follow university procedures in all cases of suspected
cheating - disciplinary
measures can result in expulsion.

Exams: There is anecdotal evidence that quite a bit of cheating
occurs on campus. In an effort to prevent one common form of
cheating, we will xerox a random sample of exam books before
returning them.

Arriving late and leaving early is also discouraged. If it happens then please enter/leave the room silently and do not disrupt the other students or instructor. Thank you.
