Homework assignments will be posted here.

Course topics: Your course mark will be based on homework (10%), two midterms (20% each), and the final exam (50%). Grades may be slightly scaled at the end of the course.

Examinations: There will be two in-class 50 minute midterms scheduled on Wednesday, October 5 and Friday, November 4, and a 2.5 hour final exam in December. The date of the final examination will be announced by the Registar later in the term. Attendance at the final examination is required, so be careful about making any other committments (such as travel) before this date is confirmed. All examinations will be strictly closed-book: no formula sheets, calculators, or other aids will be allowed.

Homeworks: There will be 6 homework assigmnents, tentatively due on September 16, September 30, October 19, October 28, November 16, and November 25. Each assignment will be due at the beginning of class. If you cannot come to class, you may drop off your homework in my office (MATH 200) prior to the start of class. Late assignments will not be accepted. To allow for minor illnesses and other emergencies, the lowest 2 homework scores will be dropped.

Academic concession. Missing a midterm, or handing in a homework assignment after the deadline, will normally result in a mark of 0. Exceptions may be granted in two cases: prior consent of the instructor, or a documented medical reason. Your course mark will then be based on your remaining coursework (normally, homework: 10%, midterms and final exam: a total of 90%). There will be no make-up midterms.
