The M104F portion of Accelerated M104F/M1090 is a non-credit course that allows students to master mathematical operations such as those involving number systems, algebraic and rational expressions, formulas, exponents, radicals, quadratics and logarithms.
The M1090 portion of Accelerated M104F/M1090 is a credit-course covering such topics as algebra, functions and their graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions, trigonometry, polynomials and rational functions.
Students must have successfully completed M102F, M103F and modules 2 and 3 of the M104F course in the Fall semester previous to the semester in which they are registering for M104F/M1090, have a recommendation from a Mathematics Learning Centre instructor, and approval from the Director of the Mathematics Learning Centre to be eligible to do Accelerated M104F/M1090.Students must have successfully completed M102F, M103F and modules 2 and 3 of the M104F course in the Fall semester previous to the semester in which they are registering for M104F/M1090, have a recommendation from a Mathematics Learning Centre instructor, and approval from the Director of the Mathematics Learning Centre to be eligible to do Accelerated M104F/M1090.
Students cannot receive credit for M1090 if they have previously received credit for or are currently registered for M1000, M1001, M1080 or M1081.
Students admitted into Accelerated M104F/M1090 should be aware that the course carries the equivalence of two course loads and therefore may need to limit their registration for other courses. In fact, students who wish to register for Accelerated M104F/M1090 and 4 other courses will have to obtain approval to do so from the Office of the Dean of Science.
Both the M104F and M1090 portions of the Accelerated M104F/M1090 course are delivered using a self-study approach with tutorial assistance. However, for M104F, students' programs will be individualized whereas for M1090, all students will follow the same program of study.

Evaluation for both portions of the course will be in the form of continuous assessment. Students will write 2 module tests for M104F and 4 module tests for M1090. All sections of these tests must be passed to receive a pass in the course. Students are allowed a maximum of three attempts at each module test they write.
Individual Course Completion Deadlines
Students will have a maximum of 4 weeks to complete the M104F portion of the course. Any student who does not complete M104F in the allotted time frame will not be permitted to register for the M1090 portion of the course. The student will be allowed to continue however and hopefully finish M104F in one of the regular time slots. The student would then have 3 classes per week instead of 5 for the remainder of the semester.
