Final Exam

The Final exam for this class will take place during our last class, Thursday, July 26th.

You will have the entire class period for the exam.

It will be a closed-book exam.

It will cover all the material for this course.

Once again, 60% of the points will come from the ungraded Class Quizzes.

The test will consist of 33 questions, 22 from the Class Quizzes and 11 others.

The last two classes before the exam, Monday July 23rd and Tuesday, July 24th, will be review sessions.

The Monday class will review the material up to the Mid-term.

The Tuesday class will review material covered since the Mid-term.

You will only be responsible for the material in those two review Class Notes.

To enable you to study for the exam on the weekend before the test I will post the Class Notes for the two review sessions on Friday, July 19th.
