Announcements:

The FINAL EXAM is Wednesday, 5/16, 1 to 3 pm.  The rooms will be the same as for the midterm exams and you will need the same scantron.  As discussed in lecture most of the questions will be taken from your midterm exams and modified, but there will also be a few questions on the material covered since Exam 3.  See the Exam 4 study guide on the download page for details and sample problems on the new material.

There will be NO HELPROOM THIS WEEK, but we will have helproom hours next week in case you have questions heading into the final on Wednesday.

(5/9)  The average on Exam 3 was 69, with a high score of 100 and a low of 25.  The key is now posted.  Worked out solutions will be posted later today.

(4/28)  EXAM 3 is this coming FRIDAY, 5/2, 3 to 3:50 pm.  Lab sections 1,4,9,12,13and15 will be in GMCS 333.  All other sections (2,3,5,6,7,8,10,11,14,16) will be in ENS280 (same as for exams 1 and 2). The exam will consist of 20 multiple choice questions.  A detailed study guide is available on the "Download" page, along with a blank practice exam and worked out solutions to the practice exam.  It would also be a good idea to review the quizzes from this semester.  The keys for quiz 7 and 8 are now posted on the download page.  The key for Quiz 9 will be posted after every section has taken it.

Note that the study guide has been updated as of today to better reflect what will be on your exam - nothing new has been added - I only removed a few items.  Also, I checked the practice exam and it is representative of what your exam might be like with one exception and that is question 17 which is similar to a question that was on youur Exam 2.
