Homework  

The homework problems in PDF format are posted  here  but solutions will not be collected for grading. While these will not directly affect your grade, it is extremely important that students complete as many problems as possible. Since mathematics is a subject where mastery of previous material is essential in order to understand and deal with current topics, successful students must keep up with the 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 before every class. Next to the classes, working out the answers to the problems (the back of the textbook 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. 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.


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, purses and coats.
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 the lecture period), 20% each (Tentative dates for the tests: Friday, January 28; Friday, February 25 and Friday March 18, 2005).
Final Examination
(3-hour exam), 40% of the overall grade, will take place on Monday, April 18, 2005.
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
April 15 is NOT a legitimate excuse for absence from a final exam on April 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) by the end of the second week of classes. Please note that if the final exam date poses a conflict, students must complete the Examination Accommodation Form, which can be obtained from the Registrarís Office

Academic Honesty

Conduct that violates the ethical or legal standards of the university community or of oneís 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.
