Expectations
  1. Students are expected to have read the ap propriate sections of Chapters 1 - 6 and to have completed practice problems assigned by their instructor. Additional reading and practice problems may be assigned.
  2. Students should note that success in university - level mathematics courses often requires self - directed exploration of topics . Successful students often do more than simply repeat the solutions to assigned problems over and over again and nod along with their instructor in lecture.
  3. Students are expected to use help resources available to them (especially Help Centre) when probl ems arise. It is often better to tackle difficult material when problems with understanding occur. Putting off questions until exam time is an ill - advised study strategy. Students that work at a consistent pace throughout the term and make a consistent effort to understand material tend to achieve better results.
