This is a fundamental mathematics course designed to prepare students for use of essential mathematical concepts and techniques for Electrical and Computer Engineering applications. This course has five main objectives: 1) Allow the student to develop an understanding of Ordinary Differential Equations, Laplace Transforms, Complex Numbers and Functions, and Integration in the Complex Plane. 2) Enable the student to apply these concepts to a variety of real-world applications. 3) Give the student the opportunity to develop their problem-solving, reasoning, and logic skills, in addition to their engineering common sense. 4) Provide the student with an enjoyable and unique learning experience, through which the beauty inherent in mathematics can be discovered. 5) Enable the student to become comfortable with using software, such as MATLAB, for numerical computation, visualization, and modeling of real-world systems.

The required book for this course is: Dennis G. Zill and Warren S. Wright, Advanced Engineering Mathematics, 4th Ed., Jones and Bartlett Publishers, 2011 The publisher has agreed to include the Students Solution Manual with this textbook at a minimal cost. The ISBN for this combination is 9780763790974. Final Exam (40%), Midterm (30%), Quizzes during Tutorials (30%) Remark: We plan to have 10 quizzes during the semester. These quizzes will be administrated during the tutorial, toward the end of each session. For more information see the description under TUTORIALS, AND QUIZZES below. In addition, each instructor will reserve some bounce points (~ 2% of the total mark) for participation and answering questions during the class period. There will be a 2 hour midterm exam on Wednesday, October 17, 2012, from 6-8 p.m. This will include the materials from the beginning of the term to that covered in the previous week. The location of the midterm exam will be announced prior to the date of examination. The midterm and the final exam are closed book (Type A). You are also allowed to use any nonprogrammable calculator (Type 2). Each student will attend 12 tutorial sessions. Tutorials will be two hours long and are held weekly. Tutorials will start on Thursday September 13. The purpose of the tutorials is to allow the students to discuss the assigned problems for that week with the teaching assistant. These problems will relate to the material covered in lectures up to the end of the previous week. There will be a 15 to 20 minutes quiz at the end of almost every tutorial. The quiz will consist of a few questions from the materials covered. Students are expected to provide their own paper to write their answers. The marking for questions will be out of 2, with 2 being given for a perfect or nearly perfect answer (minor mathematical mistakes), 1 being given for incorrect answers which demonstrate a good degree of understanding of the material, 0 being given for everything else. Only 8 out of the 10 quizzes will be marked and returned to the students. Each student must attend their assigned tutorial to write their quiz. Please note that the tutorial sessions TUT05, TUT06, TUT07, and TUT08 held on Monday October 8, 2012 are cancelled due to Thanksgiving holiday. To account for this, the TAs will hold office hours for this week. The specific times and place for these office hours will be announced later in the term. The tutorials for the other sections will take place at their normal time.






Each Friday, a set of suggested problems will be posted on the course website. The problems will deal with material covered in the lectures of the following week. In each weeks problem set a reading assignment will be included. These assignments are designed to help you be prepared for the lectures of the following week. The lectures in this course are designed to complement the textbook, so not every detail of the material will be discussed in lectures. In fact, we will assume that you have some basic familiarity with the material by having completed these reading assignments. The weekly readings will also help you keep up in this course, which covers a great deal of materials. The reading assignments are a small investment that will make a big difference when you go to write your quizzes, midterm, and final exam. The course Blackboard website is accessible through the main UofT portal ( Most of the communication, handouts, and discussion forums will be found there. Email correspondence is to be used for non-teaching purposes only. This may include setting up an appointment time with your instructor or clarification of the course structure. I may not respond to emails which deal with specific questions about the course concepts or problem sets. Email is a very inefficient way to answer these types of questions. If the answer to your question is contained within this course syllabus you will not receive a response to your email. Check this syllabus before you ask your question. There will be no make-up quizzes or midterm test for this course. If you missed a quiz or the midterm test Consideration will be given if and only if you provide the necessary documents (official doctor note, official hospital papers) along with the prescribed forms from the Registrars Office. The request for Consideration should be submitted to Prof. Mojahedi no later than a week from the date of the quiz or test which you missed. If your request is approved, then an average of the remaining 7 quizzes will be used to calculate the mark for the missing quiz. In the case of the midterm test, your mark for the final exam will be used to calculate the missed midterm test. Be aware that for quizzes only one request for Consideration is allowed. In the case of quizzes or the midterm test we accept a request for remarking if and only if: (1) The paper is in ink or pen (no pencil). (2) Request is submitted no later than a week of the corresponding test or quiz. (3) Student must write and type a well reasoned description of the error(s) made by the marker. Description must be clear, coherent, correct and concise.
