Review
Assignment Policy:
In this course, although there are no assignments to be handed
in, there will nevertheless be assigned questions which you are strongly encouraged to
work on independently. These assigned questions along with some of their solutions
will be posted on the Web. Some of the questions will be selected as part of the
questions in both mid-term and final exams.
Final Remarks:
(1) You are encouraged to have a look at old exams (available from the Department of
Mathematical and Statistical Sciences).
(2) Do not get behind. Do the homework, attend the labs. This is very important.
(3) Try to learn the concepts, rather than just memorizing formulas.
(4) Students who require accommodations due to a disability are advised to discuss their
needs with Specialized Support and Disability Services.
(5) The attention of all students is drawn to the section in the Calendar entitled: Code of
Student Behaviour, where – in particular – the sanctions for cheating and plagiarism are
described.
