In order to succeed in MA2000, students must be active in their learning. Participation and engagement is key.

Lectures focus on the introduction and explanation of the mathematical topics included in the lecture notes for this

subject. Background theory will be presented, associated problems will be described and discussed, solution

methods and techniques will be demonstrated and examples will be solved. Student learning in lectures will be

College of Science, Technology and Engineering

maximised if you are familiar with the topics being covered prior to the lecture. Read the lecture notes, study the

examples, attempt the tutorial problems and discuss topics with your fellow students. Some of the material in the

subject will not be covered in lecturesstudents are expected to access the screencasts, lecture notes and

reference material in this instance.

Tutorials focus on developing and strengthening the techniques and concepts presented in the lectures through

independent and collaborative learning experiences in a safe and supportive learning environment. Tutorials are

less transmissive and concentrate on tutor/student and student/student interaction. Tutorial time will be spent

writing out solutions and participating in group discussions. Students are expected to attempt all tutorial exercises

prior to the tutorial each week.

Study Groups: Students are encouraged to form their own study groups during week 1 and sign-up for the same

tutorial group. Study groups are expected to meet outside lectures and tutorials to discuss the exercises and to

work on specific tutorial activities.

Assessment Scheme 1:

After the final on-course test, all students will be given an interim grade for the subject calculated using the

following scheme:

Engagement & Participation (10%) + Test 1 (18%) + Test 2 (45%) + Test 3 (27%) = 100%

To receive a passing interim grade students must obtain more than 50% (normalised to the universitys

standard cut-offs) overall and pass Test 3 (which assesses sections 7, 8 and 9 of the syllabus: see below).

If you are happy with the interim grade, you are not required to sit the final exam, and your interim grade will

become official.

All students are encouraged to sit the final exam.

Assessment Scheme 2:

If you choose to sit the final exam, your overall mark will also be calculated using the following scheme:

Engagement & Participation (10%) + Test 1 (4%) + Test 2 (10%) + Test 3 (6%) + Exam (70%) = 100%

To receive a passing grade, students who sit the final exam must obtain a minimum of 50% (normalised to

the universitys standard cut-offs) overall as well as more than half of the total marks for questions based on

Sections 7, 8 and 9 of the syllabus (see below).

The scheme that gives each student the higher mark will be used to decide your grade for the subject.

In order to pass this subject, students must:

Gain an overall percentage of 50% (normalised to the universitys standard cut-offs) or higher,

calculated from all assessment items below.

Gain an overall percentage of 40% (normalised to the universitys standard cut-offs) or higher on

invigilated assessment (on-course tests and exam).

Have a satisfactory level of participation in tutorials.

Assessment Criteria

In the on-course tests and the final exam, students are expected to explain all steps in working, assuming that you

are explaining to a fellow student. Gaps in logic or working may be penalised and result in lower grades, even if

the correct final answer is obtained. While marks are not awarded for neatness, students may be penalised for

poorly written or untidy work.

Students must check that the grades they receive on their on-course assessment items match the grades

published by the Subject Coordinator on the LearnJCU subject web page. Any differences between the published

and returned grade must be brought to the attention of the Subject Coordinator, so that the calculated grade

reflects the true performance of the student.

Final Grade:

The following cut-off points reflect the recommended JCU Grading system:

Grade

Range

Distinction (D)

Credit (C)

Pass (P)

Fail (N)

85% - 100%

75%-84%

65%-74%

50%-64%

<50%

When calculating a students final grade, the following will be taken into account:

A mark out of 100 will be obtained by adding the marks from all the assessment items listed above.

All oncourse assessment is compulsory.

Students must average at least 40% for invigilated assessment (on-course tests and exam).

The percentage required for each grade is determined so that the overall discipline grade distributions are in

accord with Academic Board Grade Policy.

This subject does not have completely fixed or predetermined pass rates.

The school reserves the right to scale marks so that they comply with the Academic Board Grade Policy.

This scaling will take into account the overall ability of the class and the difficulty of the assessment in

comparison to previous years.

Any student who wishes to discuss the above policies should contact the lecturer or course coordinator.

Results on individual assessment tasks should not be taken as an indication of the final grade for this

subject. Official subject grades are released after the exam period on scheduled release dates through

StudentsOnline or eStudent.

Deferred Examination:

Any student who is unable to sit an examination at the scheduled time should seek a deferred exam. The

award of a deferred examination is not automatic. Severe illness or absence in hospital may well be an

acceptable reason for the award of a deferred examination. On the other hand, misreading the examination

timetable, or leaving for an overseas holiday prior to the completion of the examination period, are not

justifiable reasons. Application for a Deferred Examination must be lodged within 5 days of the scheduled

examination date. Forms are available from the Examinations and Ceremonies Office, Humanities 2

Building, Townsville (Ph: 4781 4246), or Building 1A, Cairns (Ph: 4042 1002). A medical certificate or other

appropriate documentation is required.

MA2000 has no written assignments.

Plagiarism occurs when writers claim ownership of written words or ideas that are not their own.

Plagiarism is a form of cheating and any instances of plagiarism will be dealt with promptly according to

University procedures. Please check http://www.jcu.edu.au/policy/student/rights/JCUDEV_005375.html

Referencing is a systematic way of acknowledging sources used. Students should check out the very helpful online

resources relating to academic writing, referencing and avoiding plagiarism at

http://www.jcu.edu.au/learningskills/resources/wsonline/index.htm

In particular, the booklet Summarising, Paraphrasing & Avoiding Plagiarism (with link included from that site) is a

very useful guide.

Subject

Important policy information is available for all JCU students at the JCU website

http://www.jcu.edu.au/policy/student/

For general information about processes for student feedback and grievances at JCU, students should consult

http://www.jcu.edu.au/student/complaints/index.htm

JCU staff value and appreciate student feedback as a source of evidence about the quality of our teaching and

courses so you are strongly encouraged to provide considered feedback for each of your subjects. Student

feedback is one way of gaining recognition of subject and teaching strengths, and provides information on areas

that may need further development or change. JCU provides two formal mechanisms for you to provide feedback

about your subjects and teachers: Student Feedback about Teaching (SFT) and Student Feedback about Subjects

(SFS). The SFT is paper-based, and is conducted at the request of your lecturer or tutor and usually occurs in the

latter weeks of semester. The SFS is available to all students through StudentsOnline towards the end of each

study period. You can view a sample of the SFS at

http://www.jcu.edu.au/teaching/evaluation/JCUPRD_016952.html

In addition, the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences conducts Staff-Student meetings (pizza meetings)

every teaching period to provide a venue to talk through current issues in teaching and learning. These meetings

are important parts of the process for ensuring school operations are effectively delivering the best possible student

experience.

You are strongly encouraged to engage with the feedback processes and make a direct contribution to improving

practice in teaching and learning.
