This is a Curtin University quiz
server of the Mathematics & Statistics Department, providing
quizzes exclusively for Curtin-enrolled students.
Having trouble logging in? ... Be sure you
have selected the unit in which you are enrolled, by clicking in the
appropriate circle, and note that your password is as described in the Online quiz Info in Blackboard.
Browsers supported ... The most reliable browsers are Firefox (or
Internet Explorer version 8+.
Pages are encoded with unicode now for all browsers.
The main issue is
that a few quiz questions use large brackets and if your browser does not have the fonts to support these then you will see a vertical alignment of small boxes (or sometimes question marks) where a large bracket (round, square or curly, opening or closing)
(or sometimes, integral sign) should be. You can test your browser by
looking at the TR25 column here.
If you find you have fonts missing, you have two courses of action: either use a different browser, or be satisfied that you will be able to guess correctly what large symbol is intended by the vertical alignment of boxes or question marks.
If your Firefox-like browser is fine as per the above test, but you still have display problems, check the item below!
Google Chrome is a nice browser, but unfortunately it fails the above test.
Funny characters? ... Occasionally you may encounter (typically) Greek characters where say a large bracket
ought to be. This is a sure sign that Encoding
has been set wrongly. It needs to be set to Western European. The Encoding
you through the adjustment needed for Internet Explorer.
Need help? ... Students please, rather than use the
links to the Teacher or Administrator within AiM, could you post
your queries on Blackboard. Each unit
has an Online quizzes forum within
Discussion Board especially for such queries (and answers). This has a number of advantages not the least being
that I know instantly which unit's quiz to look at, and the
student ID of who is asking. (Some of you forget to include
such information in an ordinary email.) Also, often my (or one of
answer will benefit other students as well, so that they need
not ask a similar question.
There's a copy of the relevant
Online quiz Info once you login, in case you can't see
your unit in Blackboard, and in this case,
just email AiM Quiz Administrator directly, if you need any help with quiz questions.
Students are registered and quizzes are set up
for all Semester 2 subjects (units). All registered students were

If you cannot see the email, make sure you check Junk mail.
Otherwise, select the unit you think you should be registered in
and try Send password reminder to determine your password; this sends
a short email containing your password to your student.curtin.edu.au email account. If you are not registered, indicated by an error when you use Send password reminder, it is your responsibility
to email Greg Gamble immediately.
