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.

The final mark for the Quizzes and Assignments portion of the course will be determined using the best 4 out of

6 marks (weighted equally).

MARKED EVALUATIONS - All graded quizzes and assignments will be returned to students. Marks will appear

in DC Connect Grades as soon as they are available.

+ Academic Honesty + excused absences

can be found on-line at Program Guide (full time programs only) in

http://www.durhamcollege.ca/academicpolicies MyCampus

http://www.durhamcollege.ca/mycampus/

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)

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

receive all graded work electronically through the DC Connect tools.

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).

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

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.

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:

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-
