Canvas

Please familiarise yourself with the MATH1021 Canvas site, as you will need to visit it to submit your assignments, check your marks, and view lecture recordings. You will also gain access to the MATH1021 Ed discussion forum by clicking one of the Ed links on the Canvas site.

Online Quizzes

There are 12 weekly online quizzes, which will be run on WeBWorK. A list of the opening and closing times for the quizzes can be found on the MATH1021 information sheet.

Each online quiz consists of a set of randomised questions. You will have one hour to complete a quiz each time you open it. Note that if you start a quiz within an hour of the closing time, you will only get the remaining time to complete it (not the full hour). After completing a quiz, you will receive the total mark for the quiz, and will be told which questions you got correct or incorrect. You have unlimited attempts at each quiz, and your best mark counts. After the deadline, you will be able to review your answers and you will be given the solutions.

The best 10 of your 12 quizzes will count, making each worth 1%. You cannot apply for special consideration for the quizzes. The better mark principle will apply for the total 10%, which means if your overall exam mark is higher, then your 10% for quizzes will come from your exam.
