Required

To complete this course, you will require a graphing calculator or access to computer software applications for graphing and financial mathematics operations. To write your examinations, you will need access to the same resources that you used for the modules.

Examinations

When you schedule the midterm examination you will be asked to specify one graphing app or graphing technology and, when you schedule  the final examination, you will be asked to specify one graphing app or graphing technology and one statistics app or statistics technology. Make sure your tutor/marker has approved your choices prior to writing the examinations and that your exam proctor is aware of the app or technology that you will be using. Arranging this when you schedule your examination should allow sufficient time to ensure the app or technology has been approved and can be installed if required. When you write your midterm and final examinations, you will be allowed to take an Exam Resource Sheet with you into the exam. This sheet will be one letter-sized page, 8 1/2" by 11", and can be handwritten or typewritten. Both sides of the page may be filled. It is to be submitted with your exam. The Exam Resource Sheet is not worth any marks.
