- 4 tests @ 10% each = 40%, held in the Tuesday lectures on October 19, November 30, February 8 & March 28.
- 3 assignments @ 10% each = 30%, due on November 11, January 20 & March 9.
- final exam = 30%.
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.)
