Please
note that the Final Examination will take place on Thursday, April 17 

from 9:00am to 12:00pm in Tait
McKenzie Student Fieldhouse (East and West). 

On
the exam you will be responsible for all material covered in this course
according 

to
Course Schedule. You are permitted to bring a
nonprogrammable, nongraphing 

calculator. No other aids are allowed. 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 you should explain your solutions where appropriate.
Unofficial final 

grades for the course will (hopefully) be posted to the course
web page by May 06. 

During
the examination period the Math Lab will be open from 11:00am to 3:00pm 

only
on the following days: Friday, April 11, Tuesday, April 15, Wednesday, April
16,

Course Description: This course is designed for students in programs that only require 6 credits of mathematics. It combines selected material from other courses in calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, with applications given to the life and social sciences. Topics include derivatives of algebraic and transcendental functions with applications to maxima and minima and rates of growth, techniques of integration, applications of the integral, simple ordinary differential equations, systems of linear equations, sample spaces, discrete and continuous probability distributions. The course is designed to provide a comprehensive mathematical background for students of the biological and social sciences. Emphasis is placed on basic mathematical skills and their applications. For a more detailed list of topics with references to the textbook, please see Course Schedule.

Final
Examination 
Thursday,
April 17 from 9:00 to 12:00pm. 
Note: The course will not cover all the sections of each chapter from the textbook.
Throughout the year, the everyday homework assignment is to do as many of the problems 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. Nevertheless, 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 textbook before every 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. I will occasionally make specific suggestions concerning problems to do or to avoid. 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.
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 nongraphing, nonprogrammable calculator and
purses.
You are responsible for all material covered in lectures.
Note: Photo identification and signingin are required at all
tests and exam.
The composition of the final grade is as follows:
Five TermTests (50 minutes each written tests held in lecture periods): 12% each
(Tentative dates for the tests: Wednesdays, October 03 and November 07 of
2007, Monday, January 14, and Wednesdays, February 20 and March 26 of
2008).
Final Examination (3hour exam scheduled by the Registar's
Office): 40% of the overall grade, will take
place in April, during the examination period.
All testmarks you receive should be interpreted as raw scores and not
"percentages". The statistics of scores will be announced for all
tests. Cutoff for converting midterm scores into letter grades will be
announced prior to the drop date. Students have seven days from the date of the
return of a test paper to appeal their marks. Some test papers (randomly
selected) are photocopied before they are handed back, so we can detect
subsequent alterations. Once you have written all five termtests, your
lowest mark obtained on any test will be replaced by the mark on the final exam
if the final exam mark is higher.
Makeup Policy:
No permission will be given to a student to write tests in
advance of their scheduled dates. No makeups will be done for the
termtests. Missed tests 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. Do not write
a test or the final exam, if you do not feel well. Once you write a test or the
final exam that is the score you will receive. If you miss a test for medical reasons you must turn in
within one week following the test date a copy of the medical report
form provided here
after getting it filled in by your doctor. No other type of medical notes
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. A 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
a copy of the medical report form provided here
after getting it filled in by his/her doctor within one week following the exam
date.
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 19 is NOT a
legitimate excuse for absence from a final exam on April 25.
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 inclass tests pose such a conflict, students should contact me (raguimov@mathstat.yorku.ca) within the first three 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.
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 nor HTMLformatted 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 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.
