Homework Quizzes:
Student will keep a homework portfolio will not be directly graded. There will be 10 homework quizzes. These will occur at the start of each Wednesday class (except for Midterm weeks). Each quiz consists of 2 homework question, and is worth 1% of your course score.
Algebra Workshop:
The Algebra Workshop is a dropin workshop, open at least 3 days per week, where students may come from assistance with problems and questions during its working hours.
Calculators:
These will be permitted on examination, provided they do not have graphing/linear algebra capabilities nor online access.

Registrar Notes:
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s1001.html
