Answers to frequently asked questions
Please familiarise yourself with the MATH1902 Canvas site, as you will need to visit it to submit your assignments, check your marks, and view lecture videos. You will also gain access to the MATH1902 Ed discussion forum by clicking one of the Ed links on the Canvas site.
There are are five Canvas Quizzes to be completed throughout semester, due in Weeks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12. Each Quiz consists of a set of randomised questions. You will have two attempts at each Quiz, and your best mark from both attempts will count. Each Quiz will count towards assessment, making each one worth 2% of your total assessment. You cannot apply for special consideration for the Quizzes. Instead, the better mark principle will apply for each Quiz, which means if your overall exam mark is higher than a Quiz mark, your exam mark will be used in place of this Quiz. The deadline for completion of each quiz is 11:59 pm Friday of their respective week. Material up to and including the week before the Quiz may be assessed on the Quiz. (For example, material up to and including Week 5 may be assessed on the Week 6 Quiz.)
