Prerequisites: This class is restricted to students
in the College of Natural Sciences who have scored 70% or higher on the
ALEKS assessment. If you do not meet these conditions, you will be dropped
from the class around August 29 or 30.
The final exam will be on Tuesday, December 13, 9AM-noon, in Welch 2.246.
The ground rules are the same as for the midterms, except that you are allowed
two crib sheets instead of one. Calculators are not allowed.
My office hours on finals week are Th-F 11-12 and 2-3.
The final will have 9 multi-part problems and is designed to take about 2
hours. You'll have 3 hours to do it. Information about the problems can be
found as a Quest announcement, posted on December 7.
