Optional Assignment is Now Posted


The optional assignment is now posted under the heading Assignment at the top of this page.  Please read the instructions carefully.  You do not need to tell me if you are doing the assignment ahead of time.  If you submit an assignment by the due date you will be graded according to the grading scheme described as Option One on the outline.  If you do not submit an assignment by the due date, you will graded according to Option Two (No assignment).

Keep in mind that given the weighting scheme, the assignment tends to influence grades only a few percentages up or down and so you should keep this in mind in your decision whether it is a good use of your time to write the optional essay.  For most of you, your time will be better spent studying for the exam.  You must also assess whether essay writing is your strength or not.
