Labs start on or after January 13, 2010.


There will be two common exams: Calculators and other electronic aids will not be allowed on the exams.
If the midterm is missed for a valid reason (Section 23.5.6(1)a of the Calendar), the weight will be transferred to the final. There will be no deferred midterm.
Students who miss the final exam must apply to their faculty in writing for permission to write the deferred exam on Saturday, May 8, 2010, at a time and place yet to be announced.
In addition to the requirements set out in section 23.5.5 of the Calendar, students wishing to be considered for a re-examination must have, excluding the final, completed at least one-half of the term work. Term performance will be considered in the decision to grant a re-examination.


The grade will be based on labs (10%), the midterm (35%), and the final (55%). Unless exceptional circumstances arise, grades will be awarded based on the long time statistics for the overall performance in Math 102.
