I have posted homework 7 here.

It is due Sunday, October 29th, at 11:59 PM.

It is not due this coming Sunday to allow you to study for the Mid-term Exam.

Mid-term

The mid-term exam for this course will be held on Tuesday, October 24th.

It will consist of 25 questions like those on the quizzes.

You will have the entire class period to work on the exam.

60% of the questions will come from the Ungraded Class Quizzes.

The next class, Thursday, October 19th, will be a review session.

You will only be responsible for the material in the Class Notes for that class on the exam.

The Mid-term is a closed book exam.
