Exams (Quizzes, Midterm and Final)

  • Midterm exam #1 is Oct 11 (80 minutes, in class).
  • Midterm exam #2 is Nov 15 (80 minutes, in class).
  • Final exam date will be set by the university
  • For all exams, you will be permitted a calculator and one (1) 8.5"×11" paper sheet containing any information you choose (double sided).

Marks Policies

  • If you have a question about a mark you have received, please fill out, sign and submit this form.
  • Academic fraud will be taken very seriously. Cooperation between students for assignments is expected and encouraged, however, copying of another's work is not. You should not be leaving a discussion with copies of another student's work.

Academic Accomodation

  • The Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities (PMC) provides services to students with Learning Disabilities (LD), psychiatric/mental health disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), chronic medical conditions, and impairments in mobility, hearing, and vision. If you have a disability requiring academic accommodations in this course, please contact PMC at 613-520-6608 or pmc@carleton.ca for a formal evaluation. If you are already registered with the PMC, contact your PMC coordinator to send me your Letter of Accommodation at the beginning of the term, and no later than two weeks before the first in-class scheduled test or exam requiring accommodation (if applicable). Requests made within two weeks will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. After requesting accommodation from PMC, meet with me to ensure accommodation arrangements are made. Please consult the PMC website  for the deadline to request accommodations for the formally-scheduled exam (if applicable).
  • Pregnancy obligation: write to me with any requests for academic accommodation during the first two weeks of class, or as soon as possible after the need for accommodation is known to exist.
  • Religious obligation: write to me with any requests for academic accommodation during the first two weeks of class, or as soon as possible after the need for accommodation is known to exist.
  • For more details see the Equity Services website
