Course Schedule
« on: September 12, 2014, 12:06:37 AM »
So, I've looked through the Course Outline and the Home Assignments list several times, but I can't figure out when we need to have read and completed the Home Assignments for each textbook section.

Is there a schedule that will be added to the course webpage soon? It's difficult to organise this course around my others if I am not sure when I need to have sections completed by.

Completed Homework Assignments will not be collected (nor marked). Instead given without warning Quizzes (approximately 15-20min long)
will contain two problems from the Homework of the preceding the respective Quiz weeks. (Each of the 5 Quizzes is worth 4% of the
Term Mark.)

So, you need to solve problems from the sections  in our textbook the material was covered in the lectures of the week preceding the respective Quiz (so, before your class starts you should solve problems of the preceding weeks).

I understand the quiz process, but there is nothing on the course webpage indicating which textbook sections are to be covered in each lecture week. How am I supposed to obtain this information - just from my instructor at the beginning of each lecture?

At the end of each lecture either instructor tells you which sections have been covered or you just match to textbook. Also you may ask on forum.

Note that the Day section will lag behind Night sections by 1 hour after Thanksgiving and by 3 hours after Fall break.

BTW, you (screen) Name should include also your last name. Read here: http://forum.math.toronto.edu/index.php?topic=378.0

I think I have the same concern. I understand that that I will know what sections will have been covered after each lecture and that I have to do the corresponding home assignment by the next one to be prepared for the possible quiz. But I would really appreciate it if I could know what sections are to probably be covered before the lecture so that I could read over the material and be able to keep up with the pace of your teaching.

The usual rule: every week we cover about 2--3 sections (but there will be exceptions). I will post what I plan in L5101. But the best laid plans...

Are the problems posted on WebWorks also eligible for the quiz or is it strictly from these set of problems

Any problem in the Homework (from Textbook, additional, from Webwork) can be in the Quiz

Is it possible to have a quiz today?
I only ask since last week, since myself (and I reckon several others) were still on the waitlist for the course, and only just got in recently to the course and as such, are still catching up on last weeks material, and wouldn't be adequately prepared for todays quiz if we were to have one.

No: no substantial homework was due. But the next week will be a fair game.

I just enrolled in this course. Since I have not planned to take it before this weekend, I did not attend all previous lectures. Can someone tell me which part of textbook is covered up to today? And which section of assignments should be done?  So that I can prepare for upcoming quiz. Thank you!

Different sections move with slightly different speed. L5101 finished Chapter 2, and for a quiz you need to do the same*. In the announcements I listed  sections which were covered. L5102 and L0101 started Chapter 3 but quiz will not touch this*.


* Assuming that there will be a quiz during coming week.
