Learning Resources


There will be early/late sittings (TBA).

Marking scheme

Your Final Mark will be computed as follows: \begin{gather} \mathsf{FM}= \min\bigl[ \mathsf{Q} + \mathsf{BM}+\mathsf{T}_1 + \mathsf{T}_2 + \mathsf{FEM},\, 100\bigr],\\[3pt] \mathsf{Q} = \mathsf{Q}_1 + \mathsf{Q}_2+\mathsf{Q}_3 + \mathsf{Q}_4 + \mathsf{Q}_5 + \mathsf{Q}_6 + \mathsf{Q}_7 \qquad \text{with 2 worst Quizzes dropped} \end{gather} where $\mathsf{FM}$ and $\mathsf{FE}$ are your Final Mark, and the Final Exams Mark respectively,

Home assignments are neither submitted nor graded but Quizzes will be drawn from Home assignments which are due, Quizzes are usually biweekly and are 15—20 min long in class time, see Lecture Notes which cover also Home assignments and Quizzes.

Missing work

There will be no make up (even) for a legitimately missing work, but the remainder will count heavier. Namely: $\mathsf{T}_1 + \mathsf{T}_2 + \mathsf{FEM}$ will get factor $80/(80-L)$ with $L$ the sum of all legitimately missed tests. Similarly $\mathsf{Q}$ will get a factor $20/(20-LQ)$ with $LQ$ the sum of all legitimately missed quizzes.

Since there will be early and late sittings for Tests and since Quizzes are during class time you need to provide a Verification of Student Illness or Injury form covering the day of the missing test.

You may email me a scan of this form when you receive it, but then you need to bring me the original .
