Here's the conversion I used when considering your scores on the final (sorry, I forgot to put this in the last announcement). The A-range was 75–100. The B-range was 63–74. And the C-range was 53–62.
I've finished up all the grading and posted your grade on the final and your course grade on Blackboard. I think I've taken everything properly into account (e.g., if you missed a quiz or an in-class poll due to an excused absence), but feel free to check in with me if there's anything you're not sure about. I'll submit the official grades to the registrar tomorrow afternoon.
Thank you for your work in this class and have a great break!
This is just a reminder asking you to please fill out your course evaluations if you haven't yet. They're due tonight at midnight. There's no obligation to do them, but our department takes student feedback seriously, and it's your chance to let us know what you think.
Our final is to be held on Thursday, December 16, from 2:30-4:25pm. The room has been changed: the new room is 3S-103.
The rules for the final are basically the same as for the midterm. You are allowed a two-sided sheet of notes on a single standard-sized piece of paper in your own handwriting. You may use any calculator, graphing or scientific (but you cannot use a phone or a computer).
Two differences from the midterm: On the final, there will be some problems that require a calculator (to compute trigonometric functions). Also, we don't return your final, so there's no need to bring a self-addressed stamped envelope.
Here are some practice problems for the final. I've made it much longer than the real final to make sure you have plenty of material to practice with, but other than that it gives a pretty good idea of what the final will be like.
I'm not planning to post solutions to these, though we'll talk about some of them in class. If you're not sure where to start on a problem or you get stuck, I encourage you to send me an email. I'd be very glad to help you. Also, if you just want to check if you got the answer right, feel free to email me and I can tell you.
The final for our class will be on Thursday, December 16th, from 2:30-4:25pm in room 5N-216A. Note: the room has been changed. The new room is 3S-103. Please note that it's not during our class's usual time or day of the week. I don't have any more details to add right now but I wanted to give you a chance to get this on your calendars.
I mentioned in class today that there will be an online quiz on Monday, November 15th. It will be on chapters 4.4 and 4.5.
