Final exam, Tuesday 21st 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.
