Tutorial Information:
The weekly tutorial sessions are designed to provide an opportunity for students to practice the material covered in the previous week classes and to get assistance for material they do not fully understand. These are small group sessions where the students should feel free to ask questions of the tutorial leader. 
 
Assignments:
The assignments will be given out in class  and will be posted on the web site in advance of the tutorials and students should attempt to answer the questions before coming to the tutorial session. The questions on the assignments will reflect the material covered in class in the preceding week. Unless otherwise specified, assignments should be dropped at assignment drop box at 5th floor, Ross Building North, near elevators. Assignments are due on Tuesdays at 2:00 pm of the following week. Assignment handed later will not be marked.
It is extremely important that students complete these assignments before the tutorial sessions since the material covered on the following tutorial will be related to the assignment. Since mathematics is a subject where mastery of previous material is essential in order to understand the current topics, successful students must keep up to date in the course and seek help for points they do not understand as soon as possible.
  
The work you submit must be your own. Plagiarism is a form of academic fraud and is treated very seriously. Assignments you hand in must not contain anyone else's work.
  
Assignment problems will be typical to the problems on the term tests and final examination and thus are an important part of preparing for these tests. Answers to these problems will be posted on the board near my office, S512 Ross and/or on the web site.
