Final Grade

Further Grading Information:

Score is:
10% Homework
90% Average of 2 midterms OR final exam
0-5% tutorial attendance (bonus! Added to homework grade)

Special rules:
(*) Passing grade is: end result 45% or higher(4.33), 95% or higher is 1.0.
(*) You can only partake in the final exam if the average of your midterms is 30% at least, or by me specifically allowing you to partake.
(*) You can partake in midterms and finals, BEST GRADE COUNTS (average of midterms OR final exam).
(*) You do not need to partake in the final if you already passed by midterms.

2 midterms, one halfway, one last class date.
Absent-with-reason on 2nd midterm may mean that the retake exam is AFTER the final, and can be up to last date of exam period! Take care in booking flights!

Official Course Description:
Second semester Engineering and Science Mathematics is offered in two parallel classes that cover a common set of core topics at approximately the same level of difficulty. However, style of exposition and selection of additional material will vary slightly to meet the needs of different groups of majors.
ESM 2A is recommended for students majoring in Life Sciences or Chemistry. It covers the following topics: Linear Algebra (equations of lines and planes, matrix algebra, system of linear equations, matrix inverse, vector spaces, linear independence, basis, dimension, linear transformations, change of basis, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization). Probability (basic notions of set theory, outcomes, events, sample space, probability, conditional probability, Bayes' rule, permutations and combinations, random variables, expected value, variance, binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions, central limit theorem). Statistics (one-sample hypothesis testing, two sample hypothesis testing, chi-square hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, bivariate association, simple linear regression, multiple regression and correlation).
