These are the relevant SPMS-MAS Graduate Attributes.
1. Competence
a. Independently process and interpret mathematical theories and methodologies, and apply them to solve problems
b. Formulate mathematical statements precisely using rigorous mathematical language
c. Discover patterns by abstraction from examples
d. Use computer technology to solve problems, and to communicate mathematical ideas

4. Civic-mindedness
a. Develop and communicate mathematical ideas and concepts relevant in everyday life for the benefits of society
5. Character
a. Act in socially responsible and ethical ways in line with the societal expectations of a mathematics professional, particularly in relation to analysis of data, computer security, numerical computations and algorithms
Assignments: formative feedback is written in the students’ homework solution, which are returned to the students.
In-class presentations: Feedback on presentation and common mistakes will be provided during the weekly tutorials.
Test: Students will also receive a report on the test.
Tutorials (24 hours) | Every week you will be assigned different problems to work on in advance before the class. During the lesson, you will take turn to present your work on the assigned problems. The course instructor will facilitate the discussions, and comments on common mistakes, important ideas and tools involved, and connection with related concepts and level of difficulty. |

Absence due to medical or other reasons
If you are sick and unable to attend a midterm test or missed the deadlines for your assignments, you must:
1. Send an email to the instructor regarding the absence.
2. Submit the original Medical Certificate* to an administrator.
*The Medical Certificate mentioned above should be issued in Singapore by a medical practitioner registered with the Singapore Medical Association.In this case, a makeup assessment will be arranged. If a make-up test cannot be arranged due to unavailability of venue or other circumstances, the weightage of the test will be transferred to the final exam.
Collaboration is encouraged for your assignment because peer-to-peer learning helps you understand the subject better and working in a team trains you to better communicate with others in your profession. As part of academic integrity, crediting others for their contribution to your work promotes ethical practice.
You must write up your solutions by yourself and understand anything that you hand in.
If you do collaborate, you must write on your solution sheet the names of the students you worked with. If you did not collaborate with anyone, please explicitly write, “No collaborators." Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism.Academic Integrity
Good academic work depends on honesty and ethical behaviour. The quality of your work as a student relies on adhering to the principles of academic integrity and to the NTU Honour Code, a set of values shared by the whole university community. Truth, Trust and Justice are at the core of NTU’s shared values.As a student, it is important that you recognize your responsibilities in understanding and applying the principles of academic integrity in all the work you do at NTU. Not knowing what is involved in maintaining academic integrity does not excuse academic dishonesty. You need to actively equip yourself with strategies to avoid all forms of academic dishonesty, including plagiarism, academic fraud, collusion and cheating. If you are uncertain of the definitions of any of these terms, you should go to the Academic Integrity website for more information. Consult your instructor(s) if you need any clarification about the requirements of academic integrity in the course.
