# Exam Page

FINAL EXAM: The final exam is Sunday, August 29th, from 11:30 to 2:30 in Kemeny 105 (our usual classroom).  Although the final is cumulative, it will concentrate on the final third of the course.

SECOND EXAM RESULTS: The results on the second exam were mixed, although the class as a whole did well. Some write-ups are still lacking in detail.  For example, on problem 2, some people just wrote down answers without any justification.  We should be beyond that by now!

• To obtain a very crude estimate of your grade in the course to date, I have written a score from 0-80 on the second page of your exams reflecting your homework scores.  Adding this to your two exam scores gives you a number out of 280.  Based on the number you can estimate your standing as follows:
• A: 242-280
• B: 197-241
• C: 175-196

SECOND EXAM: Our second exam will be Monday, August 16th from 4-6 in 008 Kemeny Hall.  Students with legitimate conflicts, and who have received permission from me in writing, can take the make up from 6:30-8:30.  The exam will cover up to and including Wednesday's lecture on August 11th.  (Please note that I will not be available for office hours all day on Friday August 13th).    As on the first test, in addition to questions similar to those on homework, you can expect to be asked to state basic definitions and results from lecture.

FIRST EXAM: On the whole, the class did well for a first exam.  Most people still need to take much more care on their exposition.  Here are some links you may find useful:

• Although it is premature to think about grades after just one exam, I have provided a crude guideline to convert your current homework and exam scores to a letter grade.  First, I have converted your first 4 returned homeworks to a score out of 30 (written on your exam).  Then based on the total (out of 130), you can estimate your current standing by:
• A: 111-130
• B: 87-110
• C:  77-86

FIRST MIDTERM
: The first midterm will be Monday, July 26th, from 4:00 to 6:00 in 008 Kemeny Hall.  Students with legitimate conflicts, and who have received permission from me in writing, can take the make up from 6:30-8:30 in 006 Kemeny.  (Note that the two rooms are different and that neither one is our usual classroom.) The exam will cover up to and including Wednesday's lecture (July 21st).  This means up and including section 2.3 in the text.   In addition to questions similar to those from homework and the workshops, you should expect to be asked to state basic definitions and results from lecture.
