 Homework 25% Midterm exam: October 24, 1300-1350 in V 128 Histogram 25% Final exam: Thursday, December 15, 2005 (location  TBA) 50%

Deferred Exam: January 14, 900-1200, most likely in CAB 243 (but the location might change)

No calculators are allowed during the exams.

There will be no marks for class participation or in class presentations.

### Homework:

There will be 6 homework assignments of equal weight.

The assignments are due on Fridays at 1PM in the assignment box, third floor in CAB. No late assignments will be accepted. I encourage you to work in teams of two. If you work in teams of two it will not be considered as dishonesty or cheating (see last item of the outline).  But each student has to hand in all solutions.

I will use the following scheme as recommended by the University of Alberta for a third year course:

A+(6%), A(8%), A-(10%), B+(11%), B(16%), B-(15%), C+(13%), C(7%), C-(5%), D+(3%), D(3%), F(3%)

I reserve the right to adjust the scale upwards, as to give better grades.

### Policies:

Policy about course outlines can be found in Section 23.4(2) of the University Calendar.

The University of Alberta is committed to the highest standards of academic integrity and honesty. Students are expected to be familiar with these standards regarding academic honesty and to uphold the policies of the University in this respect. Students are particularly urged to familiarize themselves with the provisions of the Code of Student Behavior (online at www.ualberta.ca/secretariat/appeals.htm) and avoid any behavior which could potentially result in suspicions of cheating, plagiarism, misinterpretation of facts and/or participation in an offence. Academic dishonesty is a serious offence and can result in suspension or expulsion from the University.

Help:

The Department of Mathematical & Statistical Sciences runs a free "walk-in" math help clinic every week day from 9am until 3pm in ED 751.

The Mathematics & Applied Sciences Centre, located in E6-050 of ETLC, provides an extra help program. Their phone number is 492-6272 and their email address is MASC@ualberta.ca They offer tutorial sessions and midterm and final exam prep classes.

Students with learning disabilities will find that the University has a friendly, well organized office dealing with these issues. The web site is http://www.ualberta.ca/ssds.
