Learning Resources
Required Resources
A set of Outline Lecture Notes should be purchased from the Online Shop and picked up from the Image and Copy centre, Level 1 in the Hughes Building. Alternatively these will be available as a pdf on the MyUni site for this course. These notes will be used during lectures. (More specific details will be provided on MyUni.)
Recommended Resources
 Poole, D., Linear Algebra: a Modern Introduction 4th edition (Cengage Learning)
 Stewart, J., Calculus 8th edition (metric version) (Cengage Learning)
Online Learning
This course uses MyUni extensively and exclusively for providing electronic resources, such as lecture notes, assignment and tutorial questions, and worked solutions. Students should make appropriate use of these resources. MyUni can be accessed here: https://myuni.adelaide.edu.au/
This course also makes use of online assessment software for mathematics called Maple TA, which we use to provide students with instantaneous formative feedback. Further details about using Maple TA will be provided on MyUni.
Students are also reminded that they need to check their University email on a daily basis. Sometimes important and timecritical information might be sent by email and students are expected to have read it. Any problems with accessing or managing student email accounts should be directed to Technology Services. 
Learning & Teaching Activities
Learning & Teaching Modes
This course relies on lectures to guide students through the material, tutorial classes to provide students with small group and individual assistance and a sequence of written and online assignments to provide formative assessment opportunities for students to practise techniques and develop their understanding of the course.
For additional support we also run a dropin service called First Year Maths Help on the ground floor of Ingkarni Wardli. This is staffed with tutors Monday to Friday 10am4pm. Just drop in whenever!Workload
The information below is provided as a guide to assist students in engaging appropriately with the course requirements.

Assessment
The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:
 Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
 Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
 Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
 Assessment must maintain academic standards.
Assessment Summary
Assessment Task Task Type Weighting Learning Outcomes Handin Assignments Formative 7.5% all MapleTA Assignments Formative 7.5% all Tutorial Participation Formative 5% all Mid Semester Test Summative and Formative 10% 1,2,4,5 Exam Summative 70% 1,2,3,4,5,6,8 Assessment Related Requirements

Replacement and Additional Assessment Examinations (R/AA Exams)
Students are encouraged to read the University's R/AA exam information on the University’s Examinations webpage here:
http://www.adelaide.edu.au/student/exams/modified/replacement/
In this course Additional (Academic) exams will be granted to those students who have obtained a final mark
of 40–49%. 
Student Feedback
The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including ongoing engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

Fraud Awareness
Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zerotolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's studentâ€™s disciplinary procedures.
The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
