Throughout the
term, the everyday homework assignment is to do as many of the exercises from
the textbook as you find necessary to develop your understanding of the course
material. These will not be collected for grading and hence, will not
directly affect your grade. However, it is extremely important that you
complete as many exercises as possible. Do not
memorize them. Rather, learn how to solve problems like them. Learning
Mathematics is not a spectacular sport, it is a participatory event. There is
nothing like a bit of computation to strengthen understanding in mathematics!
Use the Solutions Manual only after you have tried the problem.
Successful students must keep up with homework and seek help for points they do
not understand as soon as possible. Do not fall behind! For excellent
success and understanding in this course, it is recommended that you read the
relevant sections of the textbook ahead of each class. Next to the classes,
working out the answers to the problems 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 textbook. It is quite practical to
work on your own or together in small groups. Each student should do at
least three 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 S525 Ross.
All internet
connected and other distractive electronic devices (cell phones, pagers, head
phones, digital dictionaries, CD players, laptops) need to be turned off and
kept out of sight by all participants during class, i.e. during lectures,
tutorials, tests and exams. All such devices as well as all books, papers,
knapsacks, and briefcases must be left at the front of a lecture hall during
tests and exams. Anyone caught with electronic devices will be charged with
Academic Dishonesty (see the next page). The only items you may have at your
seat during exams and tests are pens, pencils, eraser, student ID and purses. Notes
need to be taken manually; use of cellphone cameras in class is not
allowed. Activities (such as newspaper reading, food consumption) that are not
conducive to maintaining an atmosphere of attention and learning in class ought
to be avoided. You are responsible for all material covered in lectures.
Note: Photo identification and signingin are required at all
tests and exams.
The official grades at York University are LETTER grades. Qualitative
descriptions of these grades can be found in the York Calendar at this link. Your test marks
will be on a numerical scale because these have to be weighted and averaged in
various ways, but THERE IS NO AUTOMATIC PREDETERMINED CORRELATION
BETWEEN NUMERICAL GRADES AND LETTER GRADES in this course. In particular, the
"numerical" grades you receive are NOT to be interpreted as
percentages; they are merely 'raw scores'. When the
tests are returned in class, the distribution of 'raw
scores' will be announced along with an approximate conversion to
letter grades. The median letter grade for the course will
likely fall between C and C+.
The composition of the final grade is as follows:
Weekly Assignments: 15%. The assignments are done electronically using Lyryx. You must have a Lyryx account
to complete them. The assignments are available on Tuesday until Sunday 11:59
P.M. EST each week (please note that deadline is electronically enforced).
Three Class Tests (50 minutes each written tests held in lecture
periods): 15% each (Tentative dates for the tests: Friday, January 29,
Friday, March 04 and Wednesday, March 30 of 2016);
Final Examination (threehour
exam scheduled by the Registar's Office): 40% of the overall grade, will take place in April
2016, during the examination period.
Note: Students have five days from the date of the return of test
papers to appeal their marks. Some test papers (randomly selected) are
photocopied before they are handed back, so we can detect subsequent
alterations.
Makeup Policy:
No
permission will be given to a student to write tests in advance of their
scheduled dates. No makeup will be done for the tests. A missed test will be
counted as zero, except under extreme circumstances in which case the
corresponding percentage of the overall grade will be "forwarded" to
the final exam. If you miss a test for medical reasons, you must turn in
within one week following the test date the Attending Physician's Statement
form provided here after getting it filled in by your doctor. No other
type of medical note will be accepted. 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.
Student who misses the final examination will be allowed to write a makeup
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, 4167362100, Ext. 55902 or 33969) in advance that the
exam will be missed;
2) the
student submits within one week following the exam date the Attending
Physician's Statement form provided here after getting it filled in by
his/her doctor.
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 Banff or Hawaii on April 15 is NOT a
legitimate excuse for absence from a final exam on April 18.
Religious Observance and Accessibility:
Special
needs students please identify yourself to the course instructor as soon as
possible. 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 inclass 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. Please note that York University welcomes feedback on accessibility
issues. Your feedback may be provided by sending email to: mathstat@yorku.ca
Academic Honesty:
Students
are responsible for familiarizing themselves with University Policies and
Regulations. 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. Photo identification and signingin are required at all tests and
exams. Also, some test papers (randomly selected) will be photocopied before
they are returned so that subsequent alterations can be detected.
Individual
questions can be discussed by email or in person after class, or during office
hours. Please send all email notes as plain text within the body of the
message. Do not send attachments or HTMLformatted email. No
texting, please. 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 updated regularly to
include important announcements made in class, such as the material to be
covered on the tests. Email notes requesting such information contained on the
web page will be answered the last.
