### Slides

Here are the slides used during the lecture (updated regularly). Please keep however in mind that most of the lecture is on the blackboard. If you skip a lecture, ask one of your fellow students to help you to catch up, or at least to share his notes with you.

### Useful things

• Common course information for all sections of 100 and 180 can be found here. Please read it over as it discusses some important course policies common to all sections of Math 100 and 180 this semester
• Homework, midterm and exam information can all be found on the common webpage.
• Course notes for Taylor polynomials are here

### Computing final marks

• The final mark is 50% term work and 50% final exam
• Term work consists of webwork, two midterms and workshops
• Workshops = 7%
• Webwork = 10%
• Midterms = 16.5% each
• I have used the "section specific coursework" 5% to boost the weight of webwork and midterms
• Your term grade may be subject to some mild scaling - see below.

### Computing final marks - scaling

• Each section will have different midterm tests, and some section may use the "section specific course work" to have quizzes or small hand-in homework assignments.
• Because of this there will be mild differences in the term-work between sections.
• To alleviate these differences, we may scale the term marks for each section (of 100 and 180) so that the distribution of term marks for a given section is the same as the distribution of exam marks.
• For example
• If a section has hard midterms, then its term-marks will be low compared to the exam marks. In this case we may scale the term marks up a bit.
• If a section has easy midterms, then its term-marks will be high compared to the exam marks. In this case we may scale the term marks down a bit.
