MAT 133Y September 2014--April 2015


Breaking News:

Final grades have been submitted to the Faculty of Arts and Science. Good luck and have a good summer.

Information about the final exam and a few other things.

The new marking scheme for quizzes has been approved unanimously (with a few abstentions) by the students in MAT133Y: "10% for quizzes (as before), only the first 10 quizzes counting, BUT 3 additional marks will be added (to a maximum of 10). The net effect will be that each student will be deemed to have successfully written Quiz 11, 12, and 13."

Here are the term marks, including Test 3, Test 2, Test 1, and all the quiz marks - the Fall, the Spring, and the mark out of 10 (including the 3 free marks from the new marking scheme).

The third term test was on Mar. 3. Class average was 68.4. The solutions have been added to the old term tests link below.

The second term test was on Jan. 13. Class average now stands at 71.8. The solutions have been added to the old term tests link below.

The first term test was on Oct. 28. Class average now stands at 74.4. The solutions have been added to the old term tests link below.

These are the averages that will be used in all medical excuse calculations.

Your tests are returned to you in the tutorial for which you are REGISTERED. After that, you can get them from A. Igelfeld during his office hours. If you have any questions about the marking or addition of marks, you must have returned your paper to the TA during the same tutorial that you received it. If you took it away with you, no one will look at it afterwards. The TA will return the paper to A. Igelfeld, and WHEN YOU COME TO DISCUSS IT, YOUR PAPER WILL BE LOOKED AT. If you don't come, no corrections will be made. TAs CANNOT change your mark, even if they want to, so don't argue with them. Neither can your lecturer. Come and argue with me (Igelfeld) about the test.
