INSTRUCTIONS and INFORMATION for STUDENTS
========== B'hatzlakha!! ===========
To receive additional information during the semester it is your
responsibility to registered so that you are on the electronic mailing
list for the course. Extra material can be found on the official website
of the course, including the site of the metargel akhrayi, and also
on the "unofficial" Fourier website:
There will be a mid term test (bachan). It will be MAGEN, with a weight
of 25% It will be a 90 minute test.
The final exam will be for 3 hours, but in two separate parts, each
lasting 90 minutes, with a break between them.
During each part of the final exam, and during the whole mid term test,
students will not be allowed to leave the class room.
For more details about this please read
There will not be any grade for homework and there will not be any
correcting of homework. However on the mid term test and also on the final
exam there will be at least one question taken from the homework
The bachan and exam. will be WITHOUT "khomer ezer". This means also WITHOUT
calculators. In the exam, but NOT in the bachan, we will provide a standard
list of formulae on a separate page with TWO sides (which you will be asked
You can see the formulae which will be included on this list by visiting
the "unofficial" Fourier website, or more explicitly, going to
You are permitted, if you wish, to do both examinations, Moed Alef, and
Moed Bet. You will benefit from your "magen" from the mid term test for
BOTH of these examinations. But if you do both examinations PLEASE
understand that your final grade at the end of the semester will be your
result for Moed BET (even if you did better in Moed Alef).
As well as homework exercises, we have quite often included (slight
modifications of) questions from the class exercises (on the official
Fourier website) in tests and examinations and we may possibly do the
same thing this semester.
If you have miluim, first of all, shmor al atzmeykhem! (v'gum al
If you need us to do something special because you had miluim (see
below) we will need to see the ORIGINAL of your certificate ("tlush")
that you had miluim. Please be sure to show it to the metargel akhrayi
(Yoram Yihiye) BEFORE you give it to Bituach Leumi. Sorry, but we will
NOT accept a photocopy. (If you forget to do this there is another
solution. There is an army internet site where you can order a new
certificate confirming that you had miluim on certain dates. We
understand that it takes about 2 weeks for you to get such a certificate
by mail.) To avoid any misunderstanding or mistakes, when you show your
"tlush" to Yoram, he will immediately send an email message to you
(and himself) confirming and recording the dates of your miluim.
Please feel very free to contact us for explanations about material
you have missed due to Miluim, we will try to help you catch up in
variou ways. Of course we are willing to answer questions from all
students, regardless of miluim.
We plan to give a special "moed miluimnikim" exam for students who had
miluimim on the date of moed alef or moed bet.
We will also offer students who had miluim on the date of the mid term
test the option of answering a designated subset of the questions, from
the "moed miluimnikim" exam during a shorter time period, to get a mark
to be used as their mid term score. But to be allowed to do this you
must tell us two weeks before the examination that you need this repeat
LEARNING DIFFICULTIES (Ha'arakhat Zman)
Both the mid term test and the final examination will be organized to
allow the usual amount of extra time to students who have learning
difficulties. This may perhaps mean that these students in the final
examination may have to arrive and begin writing 15 minutes before other
students. (Details will be announced later.)
To be given this extra time because of learning difficulties you MUST
have the usual appropriate document authorizing this from Dekan Limudey
Hasmakha. We will need to see the original version of it on the day of
the test/exam. In very exceptional cases we may perhaps also allow extra
time to a VERY RECENT new immigrant whose Hebrew is still very very
limited. For that you must speak to us in advance, at least one week
before the test/exam.
