Accelerated M104F/M1090

Course Description

Accelerated M104F/M1090 is comprised of two separate math courses, M104F (Modules 4 and 5 only) and M1090, done in succession, in the same semester. M104F is done in the first 4 weeks of the semester and M1090 is done in the remaining weeks of the semester.

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.

Prerequisites:

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.

Credit Restrictions:

Students cannot receive credit for M1090 if they have previously received credit for or are currently registered for M1000, M1001, M1080 or M1081.

Registration

Accelerated M104F/M1090 is offered in the winter semesters only. Students cannot register for Accelerated M104F/M1090 themselves. Students who have approval to do the course will be registered by the Mathematics Learning Centre.

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.


Methodology

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.

Class Schedule

Classes are held in two time slots and students meet 5 times per week for the entire semester. Classes are scheduled for 50 minutes per day on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 75 minutes per day on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Textbooks

M104F

  1. Pre-Calculus for Technical Programs (Part 1) - textbook and student manual by Rudolf A. Zimmer.
  2. Mathematics 102F/103F/104F Mathematics Skills Program Course Manual (MUN publication)
M1090

  1. Sets, Relations and Functions (textbook and student manual) by Rudolf A. Zimmer.
  2. Mathematics 1090 Course Manual (MUN publication)

Evaluation

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.
