If it is to the student's advantage and the instructor judges the student's term work to be complete, the final exam will count for 100%.

Calculators will be allowed during tests and the exam. Maple V software may be useful for assignments or for studying purposes. (The Department of Mathematics recommends the special on Maple V Release 5 (for Windows, Macintosh, and LINUX) presently available at the Trent University Bookstore.)


Trent University's Policy on Plagiarism reads, in part, as follows:
Plagiarism is an extremely serious academic offense and carries penalties varying from failure in an assignment to debarment from the University.
Definitions, procedures and penalties can be found in the Academic Regulations section of the University calendar. Write up your own work & give due credit to your sources of help and information.
