Writing assignment

  • What advice do you have for other students who will take this class from me in the future? What study habits have worked well for you? Is there anything you wished you'd done differently in your approach to this class? (I might share your comments with students the next time I teach this class, with your name removed of course. If you do not want your comments shown to future students, just mention that in whatever you write.)
  • Also, if you have any remarks or suggestions for me about the class, feel free to write them as well. You can also put comments in your course evaluation if you want to do so anonymously.
All homework


Here are the solutions to the final, in case you want to see them.

Do you want to see your graded final? If you just want to look at recreationally, please stop by my office sometime next semester and pick it up. If you want to see it now before I submit your grades, send me an email and I'll scan your exam and send it to you. But do please be aware that it's unlikely that you're going to find any grading mistakes that will result in my changing your score.

I've finished up all the grading for the course. First, your scores on the final are now posted on Blackboard. You can interpret your score on the final like this:

  • A: 51–70
  • B: 37–49
  • C: 28–36

I've also posted your final grades for the class on Blackboard. I haven't submitted them to the registrar yet, so if you're aware of anything that I've messed up, please let me know as soon as you can.

I'll put up the solutions for the final tomorrow and give you some more information about that, so please hold tight, but I figured you'd want to get your grades as soon as possible. Thank you for all your work in this class!

I just wanted to mention that there was a typo in the solutions. On problem 3b, the solution said \( f(x)\neq f(y) \) when it should have said \( f(x)=f(y) \). It's fixed now. I wrote the solutions really quickly, so if you notice anything else that seems off, please send me an email and I'll make sure it's right.

This is one last reminder to fill out your course evaluation for this class! Today is the last day to fill them out. 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.

I've started writing up the solutions to the practice problems. They're not all done yet (and I probably won't write up all of problem #7), but I'll finish them up by tomorrow morning.

Update: I added more solutions. I still haven't done all of them but I'm not planning to do more unless there are specific requests.

The final will be on Wednesday, December 15th, in room 5N-104 at our normal class time. You can have a sheet of notes (a single two-sided sheet of paper, written in your own handwriting), just like on the midterm. As always, make sure you have everything you need to get onto campus (i.e., your Cleared4 pass), and remember to bring a mask to the exam.

I've assigned one last writing assignment! I set it due on the same day as the final since I don't actually care when you do it, so long as I've got them in time to submit your grades quickly after the final.

This is just a reminder to fill out your course evaluation for this class! The last day to do them is Monday, December 13th. It's not like they're required or anything, but our department and the administration of CSI do take them seriously and want to hear what you think about the class, both good and bad.
