There are 6 assignments. The first one is on May 8, the second to the sixth are due, respectively, on May 13, 16, 20, 24 and 28. We will be using the WeBWork system, developed at the University of Rochester, which is designed to expose you to a large number of drill problems, and where plagiarism is discouraged. WeBWork is accessible only over the Web at Your login name is your DAS username (the part of your po-box email address that precedes the @ ). Your initial password is your student number. For security, I suggest you change the passward to a new one in your first access.


The tutorial hours are 13:00-16:00 MW. Ms. Mahta Khosravi is in charge of it. Her email is There are 2 short quizzes, administered at the tutorials. No provision is being made for students who miss a quiz: the grading formula permits the quiz component of the final grade to be replaced by the final examination grade, if this is to the student's advantage.


It is a 3-hour long examinationn held on May 28, 14:00-17:00, Room: LEA 14 & 15, which covers all topics mentioned in the Syllabus.


Assignment work: 20%; Quizzes: 20% (or 0%); Final Examination: 60% (or 80%). Where a student's performance on the final examination is superior to her/his performance on the tutorial quizzes, the final examination grade will replace the quiz grade in calculations. It is not planned to permit the examination grade to replace the grade on WeBWork assignments.
