Learning Resources

Prescribed Texts

There is no prescribed textbook for this course. Class notes and sets of problem booklets will be handed out to students.


References

Any first year text, or Mathematical Methods Year 11 or 12 textbook, or most first year texts on Probability and Statistics.


Other Resources

All students will need a scientific or graphic calculator. Access to a computer would be advantageous


Overview of Assessment

The student must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a particular competency to be deemed competent. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.
Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including written tests, assignments and a final exam.


Assessment Tasks

Assessment Tasks will consist of Tests and an end of semester Exam.

In class tests: 50%

Exam 1
End of Semester 2, November – Exam: 50%


TOTAL = 100%

University Plagiarism Statement

Students are reminded that cheating, whether by fabrication, falsification of data, or plagiarism, is an offence subject to University disciplinary procedures. Plagiarism in oral, written or visual presentations is the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person, without appropriate referencing, as though it is one’s own. Plagiarism is not acceptable. The use of another person’s work or ideas must be acknowledged. Failure to do so may result in charges of academic misconduct, which carry a range of penalties including cancellation of results and exclusion from your course. Students are responsible for ensuring that their work is kept in a secure place. It is also a disciplinary offence for students to allow their work to be plagiarised by another student. Students should be aware of their rights and responsibilities regarding the use of copyright material.
