### Evaluation:

Tutorial | 10% |

Homework | 10% |

Midterm Exams | 2x20% |

Final Exam | 40% |

**Exam conflicts:**If you know ahead of time that you are unable to attend a midterm or final exam, you must let your instructor know at least

*two weeks in advance*so alternative arrangements can be made. See also the University's policy on final exam conflicts.

**Accommodation of missed work:**No late assignments will be accepted.

**If you are granted accommodation by your Dean's Office for a missed course component, the following grade reweightings will apply. For each missed assignment or tutorial, the number of assignments or tutorials used to calculate that portion of your course mark will be reduced by one. For one missed midterm exam, there will be no make-up exam: the 20% weight will be redistributed equally between the remaining midterm exam (now 30%) and final exam (now 50%). For a missed final exam, a make-up final exam will be set by the Department of Mathematics.**
