REGULATIONS

1) At most nine credit hours in Mathematics will be given for courses completed from the following list subject to normal credit restrictions: M1000, M1031, M1050, M1051, M1080, M1081, M1090, M1150 and M1151.

2) At most six credit hours in courses below the 2000-level can be used toward the course requirements in Mathematics and Statistics for the Major, Joint Major, Honours or Joint Honours in Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics or Statistics.

3) In the program descriptions that follow, M 1000 may be replaced by M 1081.

4) Credit may be obtained for only one of Statistics 2500, 2510, 2550 and Psychology 2900. Credit may be obtained for only one of Statistics 2501, 2560 (former 2511), and Psychology 2901.

5) Students with credits in Mathematics or Statistics not listed in this Calendar must consult the department for equivalency before taking any course listed below.

6) The former Mathematics 1150 and Mathematics 1151 were courses designed specifically for students who intended to graduate with a degree in Primary or Elementary Education. No other students can receive credit for these courses. These courses are not acceptable as alternatives to any other First Year Mathematics course listed in this calendar. Students who have received credit for Education 125 or Mathematics 115/125 cannot receive additional credit for the former Mathematics 1150 or Mathematics 1151 or the current Mathematics 1050 or Mathematics 1051.

7) i) For the academic year 2002-2003 the Mathematics Placement Test (MPT) will be used to determine placement in the following courses: M1050, M1051 and M1090.

ii) For subsequent years, students intending to register for the first time in any course below the 2000 level, must first submit a score for one of the following:

a) An Advanced Placement calculus Examination;

b) Other standardized tests acceptable to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

FACULTY ADVISORS

Each student registered in any program listed above (except for a Minor) will be assigned a FACULTY ADVISOR. Each student's program must be planned with the advice of the Faculty Advisor before presentation to the Head of the Department or his delegate, for approval.

NOTE: The Department of Mathematics and Statistics will endeavour to give appropriate advice to students registered in its programs. However, the department points out that it is the responsibility of the student to see that his or her academic program meets the University's regulations in all respects. Students are referred to the University's General Academic Regulations, item 4.2.2. The department accepts no responsibility for any matter arising from an inappropriate and/or improperly recorded registration.
