Tests and Course Mark
There will be three tests
1. March 6, 2. April 18 3. May 16
Venues to be announced.
In addition, there will be quizzes written at the end of some tutorials. The average mark of the quizzes counts as Test 4. Your Course Mark will be the average of your best three test marks (the worst mark will not be considered). Failure to write a test will result in a zero mark for that test; there will be no make up test for anybody.
Duly Performed Certificates
Your DP Mark is the average of your Course Mark for MATH105 and your Course Mark for Math 134, i.e.
DP Mark = (Course Mark for Math 105 + Course Mark for Math 134)/2
In order to obtain the DP certificate (i.e., being granted permission to write the final examination), the following requirements should be met:
(i) your DP Mark must be at least 35%;
(ii) you must attend at least 80 % of your lectures and tutorials.
Exam and Assessment
At the end of the semester, and if granted DP, you will write a 3-hour Math 134/105 examination. (There is no separate Math 105 exam: all Math 105 students write
the Math 134/105 exam only). Your mark from this 3-hour paper will count 67% of your Final Mark, while your DP Mark will count 33%, i.e.,
Final Mark = (DP Mark) × 0:33 + (Math 134=105 Exam Mark) × 0:67:
You will be credited for this course if your Final Mark is at least 50%.
