**GENERAL INFORMATION FOR
**

MATH1131

3

Ba
kground

MATH1131, Mathemati
s 1A is a rst year
ourse taught by the S
hool of Mathemati
s and

Statisti
s in semester 2, and is worth six units of
redit.

MATH1131 is also taught in semester 1.

The higher version of this
ourse, MATH1141, is not oered in Semester 2.

Students who pass MATH1131 in semester 2 may
ontinue to study MATH1231, Mathemati
s

1B, in Summer Session.

MATH1131 and MATH1231 (or MATH1141 and MATH1241) are generally spe
ied in Engineering programs, as well as many S
ien
e programs.

Students
an only
ount one of MATH1131 and MATH1141 towards their degree. The ex
luded
ourses for MATH1131 are:

MATH1011, MATH1031, MATH1141, MATH1151, ECON1202 and ECON2291.

**Assumed Knowledge and the Assumed Knowledge Quiz
**

The assumed knowledge for MATH1131 is a mark of at least 100 on the NSW HSC Mathemati
s

Extension 1
ourse. However, students with marks below 120 are advised that they will need

work espe
ially
ons
ientiously. MATH1131 is also an appropriate
ourse for those students who

only attempted the NSW HSC Mathemati
s
ourse and who attained a mark of 90. Students

who attained a mark below 80 on that
ourse are likely to nd MATH1131 to be very diÆ
ult.

If you feel after two weeks of semester that MATH1131 is too demanding for you, then you

should seek advi
e from the Dire
tor of First Year, RC-3073.

There will be an online test on Assumed Knowledge in Weeks 1 and 2. This should

give you some
lear indi
ation as to how prepared you are for this
ourse. Revision problems

for this quiz appear at the beginning of the Cal
ulus Notes. You may
are to work through

these before attempting the online quiz. Students who only studied 2 Unit Mathemati
s at high

s
hool and who did not take the Bridging Course will nd this test diÆ
ult sin
e it
ontains

material from the HSC Extension 1
ourse. There will be some brief notes available on Moodle

to supplement the revision problems and you will need to learn this material independently.

This test will be on Maple TA and
ount towards your nal grade as part of the Online Algebra

and Cal
ulus Tests. See the the se
tion on Online Algebra and Cal
ulus Tests on page 7 for

more details.

**If your timetable requires it, it is possible to take the algebra le
tures from
**

one group and the
al
ulus le
tures from another group, but it is not possible

**to mix
al
ulus le
tures from two dierent groups or algebra le
tures from two dierent
**

groups (be
ause the le
ture groups do not keep exa
tly in step with ea
h other).

**Important announ
ements and handouts may be given out in le
tures, so missing le
tures
**

(or even arriving late) may

Tutorials

**Students in MATH1131 are enrolled in two tutorials, one for algebra and one for
al
ulus.
**

The algebra tutorial is timetabled for the se
ond half of the week, whilst the
al
ulus tutorial

is s
heduled for the rst half of the week. Students are able to
hange their tutorials, via

myUNSW, until the end of week 1, and after that time, they
an only
hange their tutorials

with the agreement of the Student Servi
es OÆ
e, RC-3088. To
hange a tutorial you will need

to provide proof of a timetable
lash or work
ommitments.

Note that

ALL tutorials ommen e in week 2 and run until week 13;

attendan e at tutorials is ompulsory and the roll will be alled in tutorials;

**some tutorial
lasses may have to be amalgamated or
reated after the start of semester
**

to maintain eÆ
ient tutorial sizes. If you are ae
ted by any tutorial room
hanges you

will be notied by an email to your oÆ
ial UNSW email a
ount. During week 1 and 2

it is good pra
ti
e to
he
k your timetable regularly on myUNSW.

hool of Mathemati
s and Statisti
s makes extensive use of the
entrally provided ele
troni
learning environment known as \UNSW Moodle".

exam timetables for details

Note that:

You will not be allowed to take a
al
ulator into
lass tests.

Tutors are expe
ted to enter
lass test marks into the S
hool's database within a fortnight

of the test being sat. These marks are then available to you through the Student Web

Portal a
essed via the \Maths and stats marks" link on the home page of MATH1131

on the UNSW Moodle server.

It is your responsibility to
he
k that these marks are
orre
t and you should keep

marked tests until the end of semester in
ase an error has been made in re
ording

the marks. If there is an error, either speak to your tutor or bring your test paper to

the Student Servi
es OÆ
e as soon as possible but no later than the date of the nal

examination.

**On
e the UNSW examinations se
tion nalises the examination timetable, you will be
**

able to nd out the time and pla
e of the MATH1131 examination from myUNSW. The

web page

https://student.unsw.edu.au/exams

has many useful links related to the running of UNSW examinations.

Be aware that a nal mark of 49 often means that the
ourse has been failed and

has to be repeated. Therefore, it is very important that you attempt all assessment

tasks.

If your nal mark is in the range 46{49 then you may be awarded the grade of \Pass

Con
eded" (PC) provided your average mark for all your
ourses is suÆ
iently high. This

de
ision is not made by the S
hool of Mathemati
s and Statisti
s. The rules governing

the granting of the grade of PC are on the web page

https://student.unsw.edu.au/grades

**Medi
al
erti
ates will generally not be a
epted for missing the deadlines
**

for the online tests.

**Online Algebra and Cal
ulus tests
**

Online tests in this
ourse are
onduted using a web based system
alled Maple TA. Detailed instru
tions for a
essing and using Maple TA are provided on UNSW Moodle. Before attempting

any online tests that
ount for marks you must
omplete two simple tests
alled \De
laration"

and \Using Maple TA". The se
ond of these is designed to give you some familiarity with Maple

TA. You must pass both of these tests before you will be allowed a
ess any online tests that

ount towards you nal grade. You should aim to
omplete these tests in week 1.

The rst online test that
ounts towards your nal mark is the Assumed Knowledge Quiz

(AKQ). The deadline for this test is given in the table below. See page 3 for more details.

Before ea
h algebra and
al
ulus tutorial
lass tests you must
omplete an online algebra

or
al
ulus test as preparation. These tests and their deadlines are shown in the table below.

no deadline extensions will be granted.

You should attempt these tests with suÆ ient remaining time to allow for unplanned servi e interuptions.

Class tests

Details of the dates and
ontent of tests are given on pages 21 and 24 of this booklet.

Sample
opies of the tests are in
luded in the Algebra and Cal
ulus Notes.

Note that

You MUST be enrolled in an Algebra tutorial and a Cal
ulus tutorial and YOU MUST

**TAKE EACH TEST IN THE TUTORIAL TO WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN
**

OFFICIALLY ALLOCATED.

To ea
h test you must bring

**{ your Student ID
ard
**

{ some blank A4 writing paper

{ a stapler (so that you
an staple a
over sheet to your answers).

You will not be allowed to use a
al
ulator in
lass tests.

Your best three s
ores in the four tests will be
ounted towards your nal assessment

mark.

**Maple Online tests
**

There will be two dierent forms of
omputing tests. An initial set of ve small online tests

will be run using Maple TA, followed by a laboratory based test in week 10 or 11. The online

tests may be
ompleted on any suitable web browser in your own time, but as the Maple

pa
kage will be needed to answer the questions, the S
hool
omputing labs are probably the

best pla
e to attempt the tests. These online Maple
omputing tests should be attempted after

ompleting the
orresponding self-pa
ed Maple lesson in UNSW Moodle. Details on using and

a
essing Maple TA for online tests are on UNSW Moodle. The deadlines for these tests are

given below. After a test's deadline a \revision only" version of the test, that does not
ount

towards your nal mark, will be
ome available. These online Maple
omputing tests must be

passed in sequen
e. For example, you must pass \Maple Online Test 1" or \Maple Online Test

1 (revision only)" to gain a
ess to \Maple Online Test 2" and \Maple Online Test 2 (revision

only)".

You will have an unlimited number of attempts at these online
omputing tests. Note

that it is only your best mark on ea
h test that
ounts towards your nal grade. Again, do

NOT leave your attempts at these online tests until the last day. Inability to
omplete these

online tests due to
ongestion in the s
hool
omputing labs or in Maple TA on the last day will

NOT be a
epted as an ex
use for missing the deadlines.

Tests

Due to be ompleted by

**1, 2 and 3 4pm Wednesday of week 5
**

4pm Wednesday of week 7

4 and 5

The additional Maple lessons 6 and 7 are designed to assist you with preparation for the Maple

laboratory test in week 10 or 11. There are online tests within Maple TA
orresponding to

lessons 6 and 7, but these do not
ount towards your MATH1131 assessment and are for selftesting purposes only.

Maple Laboratory Test

**The se
ond form of
omputing test will be run under exam
onditions in the Red-Centre
**

omputer lab G012 at various times during week 10 or 11. To take this test you must make

a booking using the \Maple Lab Test booking" link on Moodle that will be available no later

than week 8 of semester. You must bring your UNSW Student ID
ard to the test.

All
omputing tests are linked to the Algebra and Cal
ulus material, so you should make

sure you understand the
ourse work before trying them. Finally, the end of semester exam

may
ontain one or two sub-questions requiring a knowledge of Maple.

The test will be on the features of Maple whi
h are
overed in Chapter 1 and se
tions 2.1

to 2.11 of the First Year Maple Notes 2015.

You will NOT need to remember the exa
t syntax of ea
h
ommand be
ause you will have

a
ess to the following resour
es during the test:

a printed paper opy of the First Year Maple Notes,

a PDF ele troni opy of the First Year Maple Notes,

the self-pa ed lessons from Moodle and

Maple's in built help pages.

You will not have a
ess to the internet during the test and are NOT allowed to bring any

al
ulators, notes or writing materials (pens, pen
ils, paper) into the test.

All of the possible test problems are provided in your usual Maple TA
lass in a test
alled

\Maple Lab Test questions". There you will also nd a pra
ti
e version of the Maple Lab Test.

The pra
ti
e version is exa
tly the same as athe a
tual Maple Lab Test, however, ea
h attempt

at the pra
ti
e or a
tual Maple Lab Test will have a dierent random sele
tion of questions.

You are allowed an unlimited number of attempts at the pra
ti
e tests.

Be
ause you are allowed unlimited pra
ti
e at the a
tual test questions and you
an view

your results for these tests in the Maple TA gradebook, you are expe
ted to have worked out

exa
tly how to answer the questions before you attend the test.

**End of Semester Examination
**

The largest
omponent of assessment in MATH1131 is the end of semester examination whi
h

overs material from the whole of the algebra,
al
ulus and
omputing (Maple) syllabuses. The

exam is arranged and
ondu

entrally. You will nd the time and lo
ation of your exams

on myUNSW towards the end of the semester. General information on examinations at UNSW

an be found at

https://student.unsw.edu.au/exams

The best guide to the style and level of diÆ
ulty of the nal exam is the past exam papers.

The

Course Aims

The aim of MATH1131 is that by the time you nish the
ourse you should understand the

on
epts and te
hniques
overed by the syllabus and have developed skills in applying those

on
epts and te
hniques to the solution of appropriate problems. Su
essful
ompletion of this

ourse, together with the summer session
ourse MATH1231, should mean that you will be

well equipped both te
hni
ally and psy
hologi
ally to
ope with the mathemati
s that you will

meet in the later years of your program. It is also expe
ted that students will be able to

use the symboli
omputing pa
kage Maple as an aid to solve problems that were generally

ina
essible just a generation ago.

**Learning Out
omes
**

A student should be able to:

state denitions as spe ied in the syllabus,

use the symboli omputing pa kage Maple as an aid to solve appropriate problems.

**state and prove appropriate theorems,
**

explain how a theorem relates to spe
i
examples,

apply the
on
epts and te
hniques of the syllabus to solve appropriate problems,

prove spe
i
and general results given spe
ied assumptions,

use mathemati
al and other terminology appropriately to
ommuni
ate information and

understanding,

Getting advi
e

Your Algebra and Cal
ulus tutors should be able to give you most of the advi
e you need on

mathemati
al and administrative matters
on
erning MATH1131. If they
annot help you, try

your le
turers (their names and room numbers are shown on page 4 of this booklet). If your

problems are more serious, or haven't been resolved to your satisfa
tion,
ome to see me (Peter

Brown) in Room 3073, Red Centre. I am happy to see you.

If you have general study problems or personal problems, don't just hope that they will go

away | take advantage of the free and
ondential help whi
h is available within the university.

The Learning Centre (
urrently on the lower ground
oor of the north wing of the Chan

**APPLICATIONS FOR SPECIAL CONSIDERATION IN
**

MATH1131 SEMESTER 2 2015

If you feel that your performan
e in, or attendan
e at, a nal examination has been ae
ted by illness

or
ir
umstan
es beyond your
ontrol, or if you missed the examination be
ause of illness or other

ompelling reasons, you may apply for spe
ial
onsideration. Su
h an appli
ation may lead to the

granting of additional assessment.

**It is essential that you take note of the rules 1, 2, 5 and 6, whi
h apply to appli
ations
**

for spe
ial
onsideration in all rst year Mathemati
s
ourses. Rules 3 and 4 apply to

the above
ourses only.

**1. Within 3 days of the ae
ted examination, or at least as soon as possible, you must submit
**

a request for spe
ial
onsideration to UNSW Student Central ON-LINE.

Please refer to link below for How to Apply for Spe
ial Consideration,

https://student.unsw.edu.au/spe
ial-
onsideration

**2. Please do not expe
t an immediate response from the S
hool. All appli
ations will be
**

onsidered together. See the information below.

3. If you miss a
lass test due to illness or other problems, then you should provide the appropriate do
umentation to your tutor who will re
ord an M. DO NOT apply on-line for spe
ial

onsideration for
lass tests or for on-line or
omputing tests.

4. If your
ourse involves a MAPLE/MATLAB lab test whi
h you miss, you should
onta
t the

le
turer in
harge of
omputing as soon as possible. A resit will be organised for later in the

session.

5. You will NOT be granted additional assessment in a
ourse if your performan
e in

the
ourse (judged by attendan
e,
lass tests, assignments and examinations) does not meet

a minimal standard. A total mark of greater than 40% on all assessment not ae
ted by a

request for spe
ial
onsideration will normally be regarded as the minimal standard for award

of additional assessment.

6. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to nd out FROM THE SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS whether you have been granted additional assessment and when and

where the additional assessment examinations will be held. Do NOT wait to re
eive oÆ
ial results from the university, as these results are not normally available until after the

Mathemati
s additional assessment exams have started. Information about award of additional

assessment is available from the S
hool of Mathemati
s and Statisti
s in the following ways:

a) A provisional list of results in all Mathemati
s
ourses and and nal list of grants of

additional assessment will be available via the \Maths and stats marks)" link in the UNSW

Moodle module for your
ourse late on Thursday 26th November.

b) On Monday 30th November ONLY, you may telephone the S
hool OÆ
e (9385 7111)

to nd out whether you have been granted additional assessment and where and when it

will be held. Note that examination results will not be given over the phone.

The deferred exam will most likely be on Tuesday 1st De
ember.

7. The timetables for the additional assessment examinations will be available on the Mathemati
s

website at the same time as the provisional list of results.

The Semester 2 additional assessment examinations for MATH1131 will be announ

**UNIVERSITY STATEMENT ON PLAGIARISM
**

Plagiarism is the presentation of the thoughts or work of another as one's own.1 Examples in
lude:

dire
t dupli
ation of the thoughts or work of another, in
luding by
opying work, or knowingly

**permitting it to be
opied. This in
ludes
opying material, ideas or
on
epts from a book, arti
le,
**

report or other written do
ument (whether published or unpublished),
omposition, artwork,

design, drawing,
ir
uitry,
omputer program or software, web site, Internet, other ele
troni

resour
e, or another person's assignment without appropriate a
knowledgement

paraphrasing another person's work with very minor hanges keeping the meaning, form and/or

progression of ideas of the original;

**pie
ing together se
tions of the work of others into a new whole;
**

presenting an assessment item as independent work when it has been produ
ed in whole or part

in ollusion with other people, for example, another student or a tutor; and,

laiming redit for a proportion a work ontributed to a group assessment item that is greater

than that a tually ontributed2 .

**Submitting an assessment item that has already been submitted for a
ademi
redit elsewhere may
**

also be
onsidered plagiarism.

The in
lusion of the thoughts or work of another with attribution appropriate to the a
ademi

dis
ipline does not amount to plagiarism.

Students are reminded of their Rights and Responsibilities in respe
t of plagiarism, as set out in

the University Undergraduate and Postgraduate Handbooks, and are en
ouraged to seek advi
e from

a
ademi
sta whenever ne
essary to ensure they avoid plagiarism in all its forms.

The Learning Centre website is the
entral University online resour
e for sta and student information

on plagiarism and a
ademi
honesty. It
an be lo
ated at:

www.l
.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism

The Learning Centre also provides substantial edu
ational written materials, workshops, and tutorials to aid students, for example, in:

orre
t referen
ing pra
ti
es;

paraphrasing, summarising, essay writing, and time management;

appropriate use of, and attribution for, a range of materials in
luding text, images, formulae

and on epts.

**Individual assistan
e is available on request from The Learning Centre.
**

Students are also reminded that
areful time management is an important part of study and one

of the identied
auses of plagiarism is poor time management. Students should allow suÆ
ient time

for resear
h, drafting, and the proper referen
ing of sour

ALGEBRA PROBLEM SETS

The Algebra problems are lo
ated at the end of ea
h
hapter of the Algebra Notes booklet.

They are also available from the
ourse module on the UNSW Moodle server. The problems

marked [R℄ form a basi
set of problems whi
h you should try rst. Problems marked [H℄ are

harder and
an be left until you have done the problems marked [R℄ . You do need to make an

attempt at the [H℄ problems be
ause problems of this type will o
ur on tests and in the exam.

If you have diÆ
ulty with the [H℄ problems, ask for help in your tutorial. Questions marked

with a [V℄ have a video solution available from the
ourse page for this subje
t on Moodle.

The problems marked [X℄ are intended for students in MATH1141 { they relate to topi
s whi
h

are only
overed in MATH1141.

There are a number of questions marked [M℄, indi
ating that Maple is required in the

solution of the problem.

PROBLEM SCHEDULE

The main purpose of tutorials is to give you an opportunity to get help with problems whi
h

you have found diÆ
ult and with parts of the le
tures or the Algebra Notes whi
h you don't

understand. In order to get real benet from tutorials, it is essential that you try to do relevant

problems before the tutorial, so that you
an nd out the areas where you need help. The

following table lists the
omplete set of problems relevant to ea
h tutorial and a suggested

(minimal) set of homework problems for MATH1131 that you should
omplete BEFORE the

tutorial. Your tutor will only
over these in
lass if you have already tried them and were

unable to do them. You may also be asked to present solutions to these homework questions

to the rest of the
lass.

Tutors may need to vary a little from this suggested problem s
hedule.

COMPUTING INFORMATION

Ba
kground

The University of New South Wales has a poli
y that all its students should be introdu
ed to the

basi
s of
omputer use during their
ourse. For students in Business, Biologi
al and Physi
al

S
ien
es and Engineering, part of that requirement is met by the Computing
omponent of

First Year Mathemati
s. Most of you will also need to use
omputers in other
ourses within

your program.

Students in most rst year mathemati
s
ourses are introdu
ed to the symboli
omputing

pa
kage known as Maple whi
h is now a well established tool that
ontinues to in
uen
e the

appli
ation of mathemati
s in the real world, as well as how mathemati
s is taught. Learning

to use Maple will enhan
e your understanding of the mathemati
s involved in the algebra and

al
ulus se
tions of this
ourse. Maple also enables you to ta
kle larger, harder and more realisti

mathemati
al problems as it
an handle all the diÆ
ult or tedious algebrai
manipulations

present in the problems. Furthermore, learning some Maple introdu
es you to some of the

basi
ideas and stru
tures in
omputer programming. You will nd the skills you a
quire and

the te
hniques you learn useful in many other
ourses you study, both within and outside the

S
hool of Mathemati
s and Statisti
s.

All Mathemati
s and Statisti
s majors should
onsider doing further
omputing
ourses,

su
h as MATH2301 Mathemati
al Computing, in their degree program.

Computing lab

The main
omputing laboratory is Room G012 of the Red Centre. You
an get to this lab by

entering the building through the main entran
e to the S
hool of Mathemati
s and Statisti
s

(on the Mezzanine Level) and then going down the stairs to the Ground Level. A se
ond smaller

lab is Room M020, on the mezzanine level of the Red Centre. The laboratories will normally

be open as follows:

During semester: Monday to Friday

**Week 10 and Monday of Week 11:
**

Saturdays, Sundays

During holidays: Monday to Friday

omputers are not working be
ause of equipment problems and that this is not a valid ex
use for not
ompleting tests

on time.

Remote A
ess

All of the software that you need for this
ourse is installed on the
omputers in the RedCentre labs. This software
an also be a
essed from your own
omputer. For information on

a
essing Mathemati
al and Statisti
al software from outside the Red-Centre labs, please see

the information provided on this
ourse's page in UNSW Moodle.

26

How to start

All the information and
ourse materials that you need
an be found by following the \Maple

notes, lessons, assessments" link in the \Computing
omponent (Maple)" se
tion on the MATH1131

module in UNSW Moodle. After following that link, use the menu on the left to nd the information you are looking for. The best pla
e to start is with the short instru
tional videos

illustrating how to a
ess and use all the
omputing related
omponents of MATH1131.

For the
omputers in the s
hool laboratories, your login ID is \z" followed immediately by

your seven digit student number and your password is your zPass, issued to you at enrolment. If

you have diÆ
ulties logging in, the
omputers will allow a ve minute login with ID \newuser"

and password \newuser" where you
an a
ess https://idm.unsw.edu.au and reset or unlo
k

your zPass. Be aware that two
onse
utive failed login attempts will lo
k you out of the

omputing system for 30 minutes, or until you reset or unlo
k your zPass.

From week 1 onwards, you are expe
ted to master Chapter 1 and se
tions 2.1 to 2.11 in the

First Year Maple Notes 2015 by
ompleting the self-
ontained Maple lessons and by obtaining

help, if ne
essary, from the Consultants who will be available in Room G012 from 11am to 4pm

ea
h tea
hing day until the end of week 9.

Computing syllabus

The Maple
omputing
omponent is taught via a series of self-pa
ed lessons. These lessons
an

be found by following the link
alled \Maple notes, lessons, assessments" in the \Computing

omponent (Maple)" se
tion of the
lass homepage on UNSW Moodle. For ea
h lesson, there

is a
orresponding Online Maple Test on Maple TA.

You are expe
ted to work steadily through these lessons,
ompleting the asso
iated online

tests at the end of ea
h lesson before moving on to the next lesson. Although these tests will

be available for the whole semester, only marks gained before their deadlines will be
ounted

towards your nal grade. The deadlines and further details are given on page 8

The online lessons
over the following topi
s:

Introdu tion to Maple: starting Maple, the Maple worksheet, new user tour, ommon mistakes.

**Lesson 1 The Basi
s: arithmeti
operations, bra
kets,
onstants and variables.
**

Lesson 2 Fun
tions: expressions vs fun
tions, Maple's fun
tions, substituing in an expression, pie
ewise dened fun
tions, simplifying an expression.

**Lesson 3 Basi
Cal
ulus: limits, dierentiation, maxima and minima, integration.
**

Lesson 4 Colle
tions of Expressions: Maple sequen
es, sets and lists, sums and produ
ts,

manipulating Maple stru
tures.

**Lesson 5 Complex Numbers and Equations:
omplex numbers, equations, exa
t and
**

approximate solutions.

**Lesson 6 Plotting: plotting fun
tions of one variable, parametri
plots, polar plots, impli
it
**

plots, data plots.

Lesson 7 Linear Algebra: reating and manipulating ve tors and matri es, ve tor and matrix operations, Gaussian elimination.

Using other omputers

27

**Maple is available for PCs and Ma
s and a home
omputer
opy of Maple may well be of great
**

use to you throughout your studies at university. However, it is not ne
essary for you to buy

Maple at any stage to
omplete any of your mathemati
s
ourses at UNSW. You are permitted

to do the online Maple tests from home or anywhere else that you have a
ess to UNSW Moodle,

Maple and Maple TA. However the S
hool is not able to provide te
hni
al help with external

equipment and
annot be responsible for the reliability of your network
onne
tion and PC.

WARNINGS

Misuse of
omputers is treated as A
ademi
Mis
ondu
t and is a serious oen
e. Guidelines for

a
eptable
ondu
t are in the Computing Laboratories Information for Students 2015 booklet.

The Mathemati
s Computer Labs will be heavily used this year as there are about 4000

students with a
ounts. Queues will develop at peak times su
h as when assignments or tests

are due. Plan what you are going to do on the
omputer BEFORE you sit down at a PC |

don't waste your time and other people's. Problems with your own (home)
omputer, internet

servi
e or the UNSW IT systems are not
onsidered to be an ex
use for missing tests or test

deadlines. So you should PLAN AHEAD and not leave things until the last minute.

You should not use Maple to do your Algebra and Cal
ulus tutorial problems (unless it is

expli
itly indi
ated) until you have understood the material thoroughly, as working through

the problems is important for learning the material. On
e the material is understood you
an

then use Maple to
he
k your answers. You may also use Maple for other
ourses.

**It is a
ademi
mis
ondu
t to do other people's tests or to allow others to do
**

your test.

Assessment

There will be two dierent forms of
omputing tests, the Maple Online Tests on Maple TA and

the Maple Laboratory Test. The details of these Maple tests have been des
ribed previously in

the se
tion on Computing tests on page 8. Note that, the end of semester exam may
ontain

one or two sub-questions requiring a knowledge of Maple.

**Spe
ial
onsideration for the laboratory test
**

If you miss the Maple Lab Test due to illness or another unexpe
ted reason outside

of your
ontrol, you must
onta
t Ms Lugton in RC-3088 as soon as possible and

provide a medi
al
erti
ate or other appropriate do
umentation. An additional test

**will be arranged during week 11 or 12 for students who provide suitable do
umentation. If you
**

know in advan
e of week 10 that you will not be able to sit the test at one of the s
heduled

times, you must
onta
t Dr Jonathan Kress in RC-4102 as early as possible and a test may be

arranged before week 10. Tutors do not have permission to a
ept medi
al
erti
ates for the

omputing test.

If possible, spe
ial arrangements for the
omputing laboratory test will be made for students with supporting do
umentation from SEADU. If you wish to exer
ise this option, you

must
onta
t Dr Kress before the laboratory tests have
ommen
ed so that any needed spe
ial

fa
ilities
an be implemented.
