Assessment and Grading Scheme
 The final grades will be calculated as follows
 50% = common Final Exam (December)
 30% = two in class Midterm Tests (October 5 and November 9)
 10% = in class quizzes (every second Thursday)
 10% = workshops
 There will be no makeup midterms or exams.
 Allowance for a missed Midterm Test may be granted in the following two circumstances:
 (a) prior notice of a valid, documented absence (e.g. outoftown 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. For missed Midterm Tests, original written documentation (for example a doctor’s note or letter from a coach) is required.
Academic Integrity
 Please be aware of the guideline for acceptable and nonacceptable conduct for graded assessments.
 All submitted work with your name on it should be your own work, written in your own words, regardless of whether it was done individually or as a group
 Copying someone else's solution or copying solutions found through other sources such as the web is considered as a breach in academic integrity.
UBC takes academic integrity as a very serious issue. Students found guilty of breaching these guidelines 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.
Midterms and Final Exam
 The midterms will be in class in Tuesday October 5 and Tuesday November 9.
 The final exam will be during the final exam period in December (Exact date TBA).
 Calculators, notes and books are not allowed in the midterms or the final exam.
 A sample of previous years exams can be found here.

Workshops
 Attendance is compulsory. It makes up 10% of your grades.
 It is very different from lectures. There will be a list of problems every week that you will be working on in small groups.
 They are introduced to give you a chance to practice what is covered during lectures. However, The workshops are not a replacement for homework and study.
