Bethune College is seeking Class Representatives (CRs) for 1styear and 

2ndyear MATH courses. The CR
Program: http://bethune.yorku.ca/classreps/ 

is an initiative designed to assign a CR for each of the major courses in the 

Faculty of Science. CRs serve as liaisons between the course instructor 

and other students in the course, providing general feedback and bringing 

any concerns that
arise to the attention of the instructor. Bethune College 

will provide all CRs with a forum where they can share their ideas and 

strategies, as well as training, to help their classmates. This is designed to 

strengthen the ties between students and course directors/instructors, to 

help students get
more engaged and do better in their courses. 

If you are interested to be a CR for MATH 1510 6.00 A, please contact 

the CR Program Coordinator, Ms.
Michal Sheinis: bccr@yorku.ca

Designed for the student whose mathematical background is weak and who wishes to take further courses in mathematics. Topics include algebraic equations and inequalities; simple sequences and series; analytic geometry; trigonometry; functions, including algebraic, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. The course is a survey of topics that would normally be taken in secondary school, prior to the final year. It is intended for students whose mathematics background is weak, because of an interruption in their education. For a more detailed list of topics with references to the textbook, please see Course Schedule.

Note: The course will not cover all the sections of each chapter from 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 all assigned
exercises. 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! 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. 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 MathStat Labs in South 525 Ross, 10:30
 3:30, five days a week.
All internet connected and other
distractive electronic devices (cell phones, pagers, head phones, digital dictionaries,
CD players, laptops) need to be turned off 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. You are responsible for all material covered in lectures.
Note: Photo identification and signingin are required at all
tests and exam.
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% of
your overall grade. Assignments are done
electronically using WebAssign. You must have a WebAssign account to complete them. Assignments are
available on Wednesday after the class until Saturday 10:00 P.M. EST each week
(please note that deadline is electronically enforced). Only top 15 assignment
marks will be included in your overall course grade. There is Assignment #0 for
a practice run, which is not count towards your evaluation;
Four Tests (50 minutes each written tests held in lecture periods): 10%
each (Tentative dates for the tests: Friday, October 18, Wednesday, November 27
of 2013, Friday, February 07 and Friday, March 21 of 2014);
Final Examination (3hour exam scheduled by the Registar's
Office): 45% of the overall grade, will take place in April 2014, 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. Once you have written the all four tests and your final
exam grade is higher than your average test grade, your final exam will be
counted as 65% and each test grade as 5% of your overall grade for the course.
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 19 is NOT a
legitimate excuse for absence from a final exam on April 24.
Religious Observance and Accessibilty:
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 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 mail. 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.
