Canvas
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 recordings. You will also gain access to the MATH1902 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. These quizzes will open at 12:00am Wednesday of each week (starting in week 1) and will end at 11:59 pm Tuesday of the following week. (So, for instance, the week 1 quiz will open at 12:00am Wednesday 7 March and will end at 11:59pm Tuesday 13 March.) A list of the opening and closing times for the quizzes can be found on the MATH1902 information sheet.
Each online quiz consists of a set of randomised questions. You will have one hour to complete a quiz once you started 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). You will not be told which questions you got correct or incorrect. You have an unlimited number of attempts for 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 the mark for your quizzes will be your exam mark.
