Final Exam Information

Hello,

The final exam will be held on December 19 2017 from 9 to 11:30 (2.5 hours) in room DB 0016 (old TEL Building).

Format

The format of the exam is 5 short answer questions and one essay question.  I have elected not to include any multiple choice questions. The exam is cumulative but heavily weighted towards post midterm material.  You should study by reading the course materials and slides and your lecture notes, and by answering (and UNDERSTANDING!) the question at the back of chapters and the extra questions I have posted on the course website.  Don’t just memorize material, think about the material.

One Page Note Sheet

You are permitted to bring into the exam a one-page, one-sided, 8 x 11.5 inch sheet with notes.   You must submit that sheet with your exam at the end of the exam period, but if you want it back later you can email me and request it.  Make sure you put your name on it if you want it back.  The invigilators will check to make sure there is writing on only one side.  If there writing on both sides the sheet will be confiscated.  Please obey the rules.

Midterm Grades

Hello all,

Below are the midterm grades by last 6 digits of your student number.  The mark is out of 100.   The grades range from mid 90’s to 20’s.  Over 25% of the grades are B+ or higher, which is relatively high, but there are also a lot of low grades.

I will distribute the midterms next class.  For those of you who did poorly, you may want to consider dropping the course before the Friday drop date.

There is an optional essay assignment posted under the Assignment tab above, which changes the weight of the midterm from 45% to 30%.   Because of the weighting, the essay option tends not to affect most student’s final grade more than a few percent up or down.  Keep that in mind when you are deciding whether to write the essay.

Lastly, there is no option to ignore your midterm mark altogether and write an essay instead, so please do not send me emails making that request.  You need to decide whether you are dropping the course based on the grade you have received.

Best, David

Here are the midterm test marks.
