September 19: To view additional information about Extra Background Tutorial(s) please click here.
September 16: Because of high student demand, we are going to open at least one and possibly
  two, (if demand warrants it) new background tutorial sessions. They will be 12
  hours in total sessions (unlike the current ones which are 16 hours total), since they
  will be run two hours in the mornings and two hours in the afternoons of the three
  York no-class holidays, October 4, 5 and 13. Students already on the waiting list
  for the current sessions don't have to do anything additional -- just wait for an
  "invitation" to take part in the new session(s) and then respond positively within
  three days if they do want to take part. Further details will be announced in the
  class today.

September 06: Welcome!
  To view and/or print  PDF  files you need to download the Acrobat Reader 
  Please, note that have a background quiz in the first class. It is important to stress that
  performance on the quiz will have no effect whatsoever on your  mark in the course
  and that the quiz is designed only to help you and us find out if you have any significant
  background deficiencies of a type which, according to our past experience, will result in
  you having problems in first year math courses.
  Also, there will be special “Background Tutorials” for two weeks. There will be two
  sections, one from 2:30 to 4:30pm on the Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays
  of the weeks beginning September 12 and September 19, and the other from 4 to 6pm on
  the same days for the same two weeks.

Course Description: The first half of this course deals with differentiation and the second half with integration.  Topics include derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions, indefinite integrals, techniques of integration, the definite integral and its interpretation as an area. Emphasis is placed on basic principles and methods, and applications which include the step of setting up a mathematical model from a description in words.

Homework  

The homework problems will be given but solutions will not be collected for grading. Throughout the term, the everyday homework is to do as many of the assigned problems from the text-book as you find necessary to develop your understanding of the material. While these will not directly affect your grade, it is extremely important that you complete as many problems as possible. There is nothing like a bit of computation to strengthen understanding in mathematics! Successful students must keep up with homework and seek help for points they do not understand as soon as possible. Do not fall behind! It is recommended to read the relevant sections of the text-book before every class. Next to the classes, working out the answers to the problems (the back of the text-book contains the answers to all the odd numbered exercises) is the most important preparation for the tests and exam that will contain for the most part but not exclusively, questions very similar to those from the text-book. I will occasionally make specific suggestions concerning problems. It is quite practical to work on your own or together in small groups. Each student should do at least two hours of independent study for every lecture hour. The amount you learn in this course and the grade you receive will be proportional to the amount of time you spend working on problems.

Note: Help is also available in the  Math Lab  in South 525 Ross, 10:30 - 3:30, five days a week.


Exams Information

Lecture/Exam Rules:

Please turn off all cell phones and pagers before entering the lecture hall. For tests and exam cell phones, digital dictionaries, palms, pagers or other electronic devices are not allowed. All such devices as well as all books, papers, knapsacks, and briefcases must be left at the front of the lecture hall. Anyone caught with electronic devices will be charged with Academic Dishonesty (see the next page). The only items you may have at your seat are pens, pencils, student ID, a non-graphing, non-programmable calculator and purses.
You are responsible for all material covered in lectures.
Note: Photo identification and signing-in are required at all
tests and exam.

Final Grade:

The composition of the final grade is as follows:
Three Class Tests (50 minutes each written tests held in lecture periods):  20% each (Tentative dates for the tests: Monday, October 03,  Monday, November 07 and Friday, December 02, 2005).
Final Examination
( 3-hour exam scheduled by the Registar's Office):  40% of the overall grade, will take place during the examination period.
All test marks you receive should be interpreted as raw scores and not "percentages". The statistics of scores will be announced for all tests. Students have seven days from the date of the return of a test paper to appeal their marks. Cut-off for converting midterm scores into letter grades will be announced prior to the drop date.

Make-up Policy:

No permission will be given to a student to write tests in advance of their scheduled dates. No make-ups will be done for the in-class tests.  Missed tests will be counted as zero, except under extreme circumstances. If you miss a class test  and provide a medical certificate showing a physical incapability of writing it, the corresponding percentage of the final grade will be "forwarded" to the final exam. However, missing tests is extremely dangerous and not recommended. As experience has shown, students who miss class tests because of some 'mysterious illnesses' will usually average 30% on the final exam. A student who misses the Final Examination will be allowed to write a make up exam only if both of the following conditions are met:
   
1) the student notifies me (raguimov@mathstat.yorku.ca) or the Department of   Mathematics and Statistics (Undergraduate Office, N502/503 Ross Building, 416-736-2100, Ext. 55902 or 33969) in advance that the exam will be missed,
   
2) the student provides a medical certificate showing a physical incapability of writing the exam within one week following the exam.
Students who miss the Final Examination and do not meet both conditions will receive a grade of F.
It is student's responsibility to fill out and submit the Deferred Standing Agreement Form.
Note: Do not make vacation/job plan until the final exam date is known: having a plane ticket for Hawaii or Las Vegas on
December 15 is NOT a legitimate excuse for absence from a final exam on December 20.


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 (raguimov@mathstat.yorku.ca) within the first two weeks of classes. Please note that if the final exam date poses a conflict, students must complete the Final Exam Accommodation Form, which can be obtained from the Registrar’s Office

Academic Honesty:

Conduct that violates the ethical or legal standards of the university community or of one’s programme or specialization may result in serious consequences. Refer to the Senate Policy on  Academic Honesty.

Communication:

Individual questions can be discussed by e-mail, or in person after class, or during office hours. Please send all e-mail notes as plain text within the body of the message. Do not send attachments nor HTML-formatted mail. Also, if the name of your account is an alias, I will not know who the mail is from unless you sign it; it also risks being accidentally discarded as junk mail. 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 be answered the last.

There is a Mathematics display cabinet outside Petrie 116 which instructors will be using for posting solutions to tests and assignments etc.
