Notes:

1. GRADE CALCULATIONS:

GRADING EXPECTATIONS- Due to the nature of this subject and the types of evaluations involved where
hand-written work must be carefully assessed and feedback recorded, the professor can be expected to return
student work within about one week. Marks will be posted on DC Connect as soon as they are available. This
policy excludes the online lab assignments that are graded immediately upon completion and displayed in the
WebAssign gradebook. Those lab marks will appear in the college learning management system (DC Connect)
Grades for viewing by midterm and at the end of the course for formal grade calculations.

MIDTERM GRADE - The midterm grade for this course will be calculated using the results of the first test
(25%), the best 3 out of 4 Labs (11.25%), and the best 2 out of 3 Quizzes & Assignments (10%) for a mark out
of 46.25%; representing the amount of completed course content in the first 7 weeks.
2. TESTS:

DATES - Students must be prepared to write all tests at the scheduled time and place. Please see Section XI:
Course Specific Policies and Expectations regarding attendance, absence and see below regarding missed
tests.

ONLINE STUDENTS ONLY - Tests are invigilated live online by a virtual proctoring service. A date range for
writing each test will be provided by the online instructor. It is the student's responsibility to book their test day
and time with the virtual proctoring service and to have the required technology for testing as listed in Required
Text(s) and Supplies. Government issued photo ID is also required for this process. Specific instructions will be
posted in DC Connect for the testing and invigilation process.

FORMAT- All tests and quizzes will be closed-book and pencil-and-paper based. It is the students'
responsibility to bring the appropriate tools to these evaluations (e.g. pencil, eraser, pen, calculator (if allowed)).

Students are encouraged to show all steps/work to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts on the
evaluations by providing full answers/solutions where possible. There are no multiple choice questions on these
evaluations. Part-marks will be given when possible.

ONLINE STUDENTS ONLY - will be required to input their final answers in the DC Connect Quiz Tool and then
upload (IN THE SPECIFIED FORMAT) their handwritten work to the Assignment Tool for evaluation and for full
marks to be possible.

MARKED EVALUATIONS- Graded tests will be returned to students. ONLINE STUDENTS can expect graded
tests to be returned via DC Connect.

LATE ARRIVAL - Students will not be permitted to write a term test if they arrive more than 20 minutes late, and
students will not be permitted to leave during the first 20 minutes once the test has begun. If a student is late
and permitted entry, no extra time will be allotted for writing the test. (Not applicable for ONLINE STUDENTS)

MISSED TESTS- There will be no individual rewrites or rescheduling of missed tests due to absence. If, for any
reason, a student is absent for a test, the student may write a closed-book, invigilated make-up test at the end
of the semester that is cumulative of the entire term. This only process applies to one missed test; a mark of "0"
will be assigned to any other missed test. Due to scheduling, students may be required to write the make-up
test in Week 14 or in the Durham College Test Centre during a weekend Open Session time at the end of the
semester.
3. QUIZZES AND ASSIGNMENTS:

DATES - Quizzes and assignments are scheduled by the instructor to coordinate with the learning activities and
the term tests. All evaluations are paper-and-pencil based, unless otherwise specified by the instructor. ONLINE
STUDENTS will submit work electronically.

There are no make-up opportunities for quizzes or assignments during the semester. All assignments are due
by the date and time deadline indicated on the document and/or as posted on DC Connect whether the student
is absent at the time or not. If an assignment allows for late submissions, there will be a penalty of 10% (of the
earned mark) per 24 hours late, up to a maximum of 72 hours (after that, a mark of zero will be assigned).
However, please note that no late assignments will be accepted once answers and solutions have been posted
on DC Connect or discussed in class.

Durham College Course Outline - MATH 1702 - 2018-2019 Page 8 of 25


Course Specific Policies and Expectations:

ACADEMIC CONCERNS:

Students are encouraged to discuss academic concerns with the instructor as early as possible, should the need arise.
Additional help from the instructor is available (by appointment) for individuals or groups on an as-needed basis or on a
regularly scheduled basis.

Academic issues that can affect a student's success may also be discussed with the Student Advisor in the School of
Interdisciplinary Studies (Rm SW216) e.g. course selection, success strategies, and personal situations that may
require accommodation. Contact information for the School of Interdisciplinary Studies can be found at:
http://www.durhamcollege.ca/student-experience/helping-you-succeed/academic-support-resources/student-advisors

The Student Academic Learning Services (SALS; located on the 2nd floor of the Student Services Building in Rm
SSB204) is highly recommended for students who need extra support for mathematics. At SALS, (or through the SALS
course on a student's DC Connect homepage or on SAL's website) students can access computerized tutorials for
individual skill development. SALS also provides peer tutoring, subject specific assistance, workshops for improving
study skills and preparing for tests and exams, as well as peer study groups. (For further information about SALS,
please visit: www.durhamcollege.ca/sals)

Services for students who require academic accommodations are provided by the Access and Support Centre (ASC),
in Rm SW116 in the Gordon Willey building. (For more information visit: www.durhamcollege.ca/asc)

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY (ORIGINAL WORK):

(Refer to general college policies at http://www.durhamcollege.ca/academicpolicies and select Academic Integrity


Policy and the Academic Integrity Procedure for specific information)

When submitting any work for grading, it is expected that students will submit their own work. Although group work
may be part of the assignment process, each student must interpret and record his/her findings and solutions in an
original way. Alleged breaches of academic integrity will be documented on an Academic Integrity Alert form, as per
the college policy, and any penalty will be assessed in consultation with the Executive Dean/Associate Dean of the
School of Interdisciplinary Studies. Please note that taking the work of another student, or any another person (or
information downloaded from the internet or an app) and submitting as if it was your own, even if minor 'tweaks' are
applied, is still considered plagiarism or a breach of academic integrity. If a student is unclear about what constitutes
a breach of academic integrity in this course, please consult with the instructor. Durham College views plagiarism as
a serious academic offence.

ATTENDANCE/ABSENCE:

Attendance has been shown to be the best predictor of student success. The only way to ensure that students are
able to keep pace with the new concepts being taught, or to clarify and reinforce information, is to be in class. To that
end, a number of in-class activities will be evaluated throughout the semester, e.g. quizzes, assignments, and group
work. There are no make-up opportunities for these activities; however, only the top 4 out of 6 of these marks will be
used in the final mark calculation.

ONLINE STUDENTS please note: Although physical attendance in a classroom is not applicable, the viewing of, and
interaction with the weekly content, including the instructional videos, is considered class time. Practice exercises,
labs and assignments require an investment of additional time. Online students are expected to check DC Connect on
a daily basis as part of their attendance and for course engagement.

In the event of an ABSENCE, it is the student's responsibility to find out what was missed prior to coming to the next
class and to obtain any documents that were distributed. Students must check DC Connect for any announcements
and/or resources on a regular basis, even if absent. The student is also expected to review the missed material on
his/her/their own, or with a classmate. The instructor will be available (by appointment) to discuss any concerns or to
review any content that the student is having difficulty with, but it is not the instructor's responsibility to re-teach what
the student missed during the entire class time that the student was absent.

All assignments are due by the deadlines indicated and/or posted on DC Connect whether a student is absent at the
time or not.

Graded tests, quizzes and assignments will be returned to all students. If a student is absent at the time these graded
documents are returned, an appointment should be made to arrange to pick up the work. It is the student's
responsibility to obtain and retain graded tests and assignments for future reference. ONLINE STUDENTS should

Durham College Course Outline - MATH 1702 - 2018-2019 Page 9 of 25


receive all graded work electronically through the DC Connect tools.

DC CONNECT & DC MAIL:

STUDENTS MUST REGULARLY access and reference DC Connect (the college learning management system) to
keep up to date with this course. Notifications by email and/or text can be easily set up to send reminders/notifications
when content, discussions, announcement items and grades are updated.

DC Mail (the college student email system) is used for all email communications. REGULAR ACCESS IS
EXPECTED. Communication from instructors, college administration and distribution of important documents are sent
using DC Mail.

IN-CLASS EXPECTATIONS:

At all times, students are expected to respect the rights of other students to have a distraction-free learning
environment. A student who is not able to fulfil this expectation may be asked to leave the classroom and he/she/they
would then be obliged to independently complete the assignments and/or prepare for the tests. To assist in maintaining
a distraction-free learning environment, students are expected to arrive on time, have their cell phones turned off, and
be prepared for class with the appropriate text and supplies (e.g. a calculator, a sharpened pencil or a pen, a notebook,
etc.). If a student uses a tablet or laptop computer, it is expected that any applications that are not directly related to
the learning activities in the classroom e.g. e-mail, social media, games, videos, etc., will be closed. Not applicable to
the ONLINE CLASSE(S).

LEARNING PLAN (found in the next section, Section XII):

The learning plan is the same for both the face-to-face and the online classes of this course. However, the method
of delivery is different.

ONLINE LABS:

The online labs represent a formal opportunity to clarify understanding and to practice the concepts covered in the
lecture portions of the course.

IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO PURCHASE THE ACCESS CODE (with the hard copy or e-book
version of the required text) AND TO ENSURE HIS/HER ACCOUNT IS FUNCTIONING PROPERLY FOR THE
ONLINE LABS by carefully following the instructions posted in DC Connect.

One-on-one or group assistance from the instructor can be arranged by appointment either to meet face-to-face, or to
meet online via an appropriate communication technology. Students may also be able to access peers for assistance
through DC Connect, email, or another technology.

Any technical difficulties associated with the online math labs must be reported immediately to the professor using e-
mail. A detailed description of the issue must be provided and a screenshot of any error messages attached to the
email. If the computer being used is on campus/in residence, or the issue is related to accessing DC Connect, a
Service Desk ticket number must be provided to verify the technical issue (visit the IT Service Desk Portal at
https://servicedesk.dc-uoit.ca or call the Service Desk at 905.721.3333). If the online labs/assignments website is
having issues, technical support for students is available and contact details will be supplied by your instructor at the
beginning of the semester. It is the student's responsibility to resolve any technical issues prior to the deadlines for
submission of lab assignments.

There is a notifications feature that can be set up to remind students of deadlines and/or changes to the labs by the
instructor.

There are no make-up opportunities for missed lab assignments; however, the final mark for this component of the
course will be calculated using the top 8 of the 10 lab assignments.

OUT-OF-CLASS EXPECTATIONS:

Regular homework, or practice, from the textbook exercises, is an essential part of this course because it provides the
opportunity to apply the concepts covered in class, reinforce the processes used and build confidence working with the

Durham College Course Outline - MATH 1702 - 2018-2019 Page 10 of 25


concepts. Students should expect to spend time after each class/lecture developing the skills needed to move on to
the next concepts in the course. Many mathematical concepts are built on the more basic ones covered at the
beginning of the course, and without a good understanding of the basics, moving ahead can often become difficult.
Practice is the only way to demonstrate understanding before being faced with an evaluation such as a quiz or a test.

Problems encountered with practice exercises can be address in class or by appointment with the instructor. ONLINE
STUDENTS are encouraged to communicate by email and/or book one-on-one video conferencing appointments with
the instructor when assistance or clarification is needed.

SUPPLEMENTAL WORK (extra assignments/evaluations):

Students WILL NOT BE ALLOWED to complete any supplemental work to boost their grades. It is in the student's
best interest to complete all assigned work with maximal effort.

TESTS:

(See Evaluation Notes)

USING TECHNOLOGY:

Computer malfunctions or problems will not be accepted as an excuse for late or missing course requirements. IT IS
THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY to resolve technical issues prior to the deadlines for submission of work or
evaluations.

Refer to the following documents for further details concerning the college policies on acceptable use of information
technology and the rights and responsibilities of students: http://www.durhamcollege.ca/wp-content/uploads/ADMIN-
