Co-requisite: ECON 1000 or 1010

Degree Credit Exclusions:
                There are many; see Undergraduate Mini-calendar for Mathematics (any courses in Calculus)
Students should review topics of Chapters 1 from the textbook or any any other book on first year calculus or
your high school math book, during the first week of the classes. Most of the review work is high school grade
Algebra, Co-ordinate Geometry and Functions. Course work will be based on chapters 2 – 5, 6.1 and 6.2 in the
package. Rest of the content in this package is for Math 1540.

Homework will be assigned almost every week. Students must budget sufficient time to review the lecture
material and do their HW. HW will be graded on-line using Enhanced Web Assignment (EWA) system . E-mail
messages asking “What HW was assigned today” or “I missed the class today, what did you teach” are usually
not answered. General information will be posted on the EWA communication system.

Grading Scheme:
Two Term tests, to be given during lecture hours, will count for 40%, on-line Assignments (HW almost one per
week) 20% and the Final Exam (during Dec. Exam period) will count for 40% of the course work.

change formula for computing final mark).
