This course will be assignmentbased. Each Wednesday we will post a prerecorded lecture and an assignment with 10 challenging problems. The key element of this course is oneonone meetings with the Teaching Assistants, who are Carleton undergraduate Math Honours students. Each student in this course will book each week (Friday to Monday) an individual time slot, at a time convenient for you, for a 15minute oneonone discussion with a Teaching Assistant. The purpose of this meeting is to review the progress on the home assignment and get help with any difficulties. There is also an alternative option to book a 30minute time slot with 2 students. After the meeting with a Teaching Assistant, students will complete home assignments, which will be submitted the following Wednesday for marking.
There will be no admission test for this course. This course is a prerequisite for a subsequent course “Competitive Math I”. For Ottawa students we recommend taking inperson “Basic Algebra” course.
