Information for Students in MATH 329 2004 0171.5Other information1.5.1PrerequisitesIt is your responsibility as a student to verify that you have the necessary calculusprerequisites. It would be foolish to attempt to take the course without them.1.5.2CalculatorsThe use ofnon-programmable, non-graphingcalculators only will be permitted in home-work, tests, or the final examination in this course. Students may be required to convinceexaminers and invigilators that all memories have been cleared. The use of calculatorsthat are either graphing or programmable will not be permitted during test or examina-tions, in order to “level the playing field”.1.5.3Self-SupervisionThis is not a high-school course, and McGill is not a high school.The monitoring ofyour progress before the final examination is largely your own responsibility. While theinstructor is available to help you, he cannot do so unless and until you identify theneed for help. While the significance of the homework assignments and class test in thecomputation of your grade is minimal, these are important learning experiences, andcan assist you in gauging your progress in the course.This is not a course that canbe crammed for: you must work steadily through the term if you wish to develop thefacilities needed for a strong performance on the final examination.Working Problems on Your Own.You are advised to work large numbers of prob-lems from your textbook. The skills you acquire in solving textbook problems could havemuch more influence on your final grade than either the homework or the class test.1.5.4Escape RoutesAt any time, even after the last date for dropping the course, students who are experi-encing medical or personal difficulties should not hesitate to consult their advisors or theStudent Affairs office of their faculty. Don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed by suchproblems; the University has resource persons who may be able to help you.1.5.5Showing your work; good mathematical form; simplifying answersWhen, in a quiz or examination problem, you are explicitly instructed to show all yourwork, failure to do so could result in a substantial loss of marks — possibly evenallof the marks;this is the default. The guiding principle should be that you want to be

Verbal proofs are expected to be “convincing”: it will not be sufficientto simply describe mathematical expressions verbally.
