If you have a personal question for the lecturer or admin staff which isn't suitable for Ed, please email MATH1002@sydney.edu.au from your University email address, and include your name and student ID in the message.

Lecturer

Your lecturer for MATH1002 is Becky Armstrong.

Consultation Hours

Becky Armstrong will hold consultation sessions in Weeks 1–5 on Thursdays at 13:30–14:30 in Carslaw 535 (enter via the kitchen).

Pre-exam consultation sessions will be held at the following times and locations:

  • 10:00–12:00 on Monday, 11th February in Carslaw 508
  • 10:00–12:00 on Wednesday, 13th February in Carslaw 535

Canvas

Please familiarise yourself with the MATH1002 Canvas site, as you will need to visit it to submit your assignments, check your marks, and view lecture recordings. In particular, you should click the "Let's get started!" button on the MATH1002 Canvas homepage and complete the Unlock Module ASAP. You will not be able to access Turnitin assignment submission inboxes before doing this.

Assessment

Assignment 1 has now been released. The deadline for submission is 23:59 on Friday, 18 January 2019. Please submit your assignment through Turnitin, via Canvas.

Online Quizzes

There are 5 weekly online quizzes, which will be run on WeBWorK. Each quiz will be split into two halves on WeBWorK (for your convenience), meaning that you will actually complete 10 half-quizzes in total (2 per week).

These quizzes will open at 17:30 on Tuesday of each week (starting in Week 1), and will end at 23:59 on Monday of the following week. A list of the opening and closing times for the quizzes can be found on the MATH1002 information sheet.

Instructions:

  • Please complete the Orientation on WeBWorK before attempting any of the quizzes, as it explains how to correctly format your answers.
  • Wherever possible, you should enter exact values, as answers will only be marked correct if they are within 0.1% of the correct answer.
  • Please do NOT post or discuss quiz questions on Ed before the deadline for the quiz.
  • Each half-quiz will have a time limit of two hours. You may attempt each half-quiz as many times as you'd like before the deadline, and you may view your grade after each attempt.
  • If you only complete one half of a quiz, then that quiz will count for a maximum of 2% towards your final grade.
