The course is intended to prepare the above students for courses which have "OAC Calculus or equivalent" as a prerequisite. Since the course progresses at more than twice the pace of the comparable secondary school course, it is expected that students will attend class regularly and be diligent in keeping up with the material and doing problems from the textbook.

Assignments 

Students are expected to solve as many problems as possible from the textbook. Since mathematics is a subject where mastery of previous material is essential in order to understand 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. Solutions will not be collected for grading.


Math Lab

Help with problem solving is available in the Math Lab, Room S525 Ross. This service will begin the second week of classes. 
For hours of operation click Math Tutorial Lab

Study Groups

Students in the course are encouraged to join study groups. Ideally, such a group should contain 3-6 students. Participation is optional but strongly recommended. Groups will be set up within the first few weeks of classes.
Study groups have been found to be very beneficial for students taking university courses in Mathematics. Working with other students aids in learning the course material and in problem-solving. Groups usually meet once a week for an hour or more.
 


 

Behaviour

 Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with York University policies and regulations concerning academic conduct. These can be found in the Undergraduate Programme Calendar. Special note should be taken of the Senate Policy on Academic Honesty. Cheating and/or impersonation, since these offenses are dealt with severely.

Exams Information

MIDTERMS: These are three 45 minute written midterm tests, each worth 20% of the final grade, held in the lecture period.
FINAL EXAMINATION: This will be a 3-hour test worth 40% of the final grade scheduled by the Registrar.
An alternative to the normal grading scheme is to have the final examination worth 60% of the grade and the term work worth 40%. Students will be evaluated under whichever scheme maximizes their grade.

Note: All tests and exam will be strictly closed book. Any form of academic misconduct will be handled in accordance with the Senate Policy on Academic Honesty. Photo identification, and signing-in is required at all tests and examination.
There are no make-up tests.
  Missed tests will be counted as  zero, except under extreme circumstances. If an acceptable reason, with appropriate documentation, is given for having missed a test, the final exam will be used for the missing grade. Students who are absent by virtue of illness for a final examination must apply formally for a deferred exam through the Registrar's Office.

All undergraduate Faculties at York follow a common grading system based on letter grades:
A+ = exceptional
A = excellent
B+ = very good
B = good
C+ = competent
C = fairly competent
D+ = passing
D = barely passing
E = marginally failing
F = failing.
NB:
Both E and F are failing grades.


Religious Observance

York University is committed to respecting the religious beliefs and practices of all members of the community and making accommodations for observances of special significance to adherents. If any of the dates specified in the course schedule for in-class tests pose such a conflict, students should contact me within the first two weeks of lectures. Please note if the final examination date poses a conflict, students must complete an Examination Accommodation Form, which can be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Communication 

The course web page will be up-dated regularly to include important announcements made in class, such as the material to be covered on the tests. E-mail notes requesting such information contained on the web page will not be answered. Individual questions can be discussed by e-mail or in person after class or during office hours.
