SYLLABUS
OF EXAMINATIONS 2000 Edition 

Introduction The regulations associated with the EGGP act require that a candidate have at least two years of postsecondary education in one or more of geology, physics, or mathematics before attempting any of the examinations in this syllabus. Each examination discussed in this syllabus covers a body of material that might normally be taught in a onesemester course at a Canadian University, but different university programs cover this material in different ways. Students could encounter parts of the material specified for an exam in different courses. FUNDAMENTAL EXAMINATIONS (All 7 compulsory) These examinations cover subjects normally taken in the first two years of a university course in physical sciences or engineering. They do not usually have university level prerequisites. MATHEMATICS 00GPF1 Introductory Calculus Functions and graphs, differentiation and integration of simple functions, analytical geometry.
