The exam will be comprehensive, covering the entire course material 

covered in class according to the Course Schedule with an emphasis on 

the more resent material covered
after the Midterm Test. 

There will be several questions, some with a few parts. Marks for each 

question will be indicated. You have to show all
your work and should 

explain your solutions where
appropriate. Unofficial final grades for the 

course will hopefully be
posted to the course web page by July 4, 2016.

Final Examination: 
Will
be scheduled by the Registrar’s Office. 
Note: The course will not cover all the sections of each chapter of the textbook.
Throughout the term, practice exercises will be
posted to the Announcements section.
In order to develop your understanding of the course material you must do all
assigned problems. 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 Mathlab 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. No calculators will be permitted.
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 D+ and C+.
The composition of the final grade is as follows:
Two Quizzes (40 minutes each written tests held in lecture periods):
15% each (Tentative dates for the quizzes: Wednesdays, May 18, and June 15,
2016);
Midterm Test (80 minute written
test held in a lecture period): 25% of the
overall grade (Tentative date for the Midterm test: Wednesday, June 01, 2016);
Final Examination (threehour
exam scheduled by the Registar's Office): 45% of the overall grade, will take place during the
examination period: June 2224, 2016.
Note: Students have five days from the date of the return of test
papers to appeal their marks. Some test and quiz 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 quizzes and test. A missed
quiz or 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, N519
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 June 21 is NOT a legitimate
excuse for absence from a final exam on June 24.
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.
