Three lecture hours per week. One tutorial per week. The tutorial will
be spent working on advanced problems, as well as examples illustrating
the class material. Help is available from the Math Help Centre, from
the instructor, and from the TA during office hours.
We will cover Chapters 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11 of Stewart's
Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 7th edition. You are expected to know,
comfortable with using, the material of Chapters 2 through 7 that was
covered in Math 1X03. We will also be discussing how to use Maple as a
tool for doing claculus.
Your final mark will be calculated as follows:
If you bought the textbook package through Titles, then you already
have both Maple and WebAssign. If not, you can buy WebAssign access
online. Purchase of WebAssign is optional, but strongly
recommended. If you choose not to use it, the assoicated 10% will be
shifted proportionally to all other marked components of the course.
This shifting will be done automatically; there is no need for you to
announce a decision. Completion of the computer labs is required. Maple
is available on computers on campus, so it is not essential that you
buy it (although it is recommended).
- 9 online assignments WebAssign: 10%
- 3 computer labs on Maple: 10%
- 2 midterms: 20% each
- final exam: 40 %
At the end of the course, the grade allocation may be
adjusted, but this will only be done in a way which will increase your
grade and will be done uniformly. We will use the grade equivalence
chart published in the Undergraduate Calendar to convert between
percentages and letter grades.
Missed Work Policy
If you are absent from the university for a minor medical reason,
lasting fewer than 5 days, you may report your absence, once per term,
without documentation, using the McMaster Student Absence Form.
Absences for a longer duration or for other reasons must be reported to
your Faculty/Program office, with documentation, and relief from term
work may not necessarily be granted. When using the MSAF, report your
absence to email@example.com. Please note that the MSAF may not be
used for term work worth 30% or more, nor can it be used for the final
The perentage for a missed test will be distributed between the other
test and the final exam.
The percentage for a missed assignment or lab will be distributed among
your remaining assignments or labs.
There are NO make-up tests or assignments.
In the event of unforeseen circumstances, the instructor and university
reserve the right to modify elements of the course during the term. The
university may change the dates and deadlines for any or all courses in
extreme circumstances. If either type of modification becomes
necessary, reasonable notice and communication with the students will
be given, with explanation and the opportunity to comment on changes.
It is the responsibility of the student to check their McMaster email
and course websites weekly during the term and to note any changes.
Academic dishonesty consists of misrepresentation by deception or by
other fraudulent means and can result in serious consequences, e.g. the
grade of zero on an assignment, loss of credit with a transcript
notation ("Grade of F assigned for academic dishonesty"), and/or
suspension or expulsion from the university. It is your responsibility
to understand what constitutes academic dishonesty. For information on
the various kinds of academic dishonesty please refer to the Academic
Integrity Policy, specifically Appendix 3, located at
The following illustrates only three forms of academic dishonesty:
Plagiarism, e.g. the submission of work that is not one's own or for
which other credit has been obtained.
2. Improper collaboration in
3. Copying or using unauthorized aids in tests and
