Home, 5/9 (last update)

The course is over and the final grades are in!

You can see the statistics of the final exam and overall grades on the "scores and statistics" page.  Keep in mind that the students receiving higher grades typically did not take the final exam, hence, the average of the final exam is lower.  Our entire oeuvre of exams and worksheets, blank and with solutions, can be found there as well.

I enjoyed teaching this class a lot!  Special thanks to people who came prepared and participated in class.

Have a great summer, everyone!

Exam 4 results will be ready on Monday.  You can pick up exam 4 and your grade on Monday at 1:30 in room 303 in Faculty Hall (if it is not available look around the 3rd floor until you find me).

Final exams for my two classes are on Tuesday, 5/6 and Wednesday, 5/7, both at 10:30 in our usual classrooms.  You can come to either of these times (but if you come on Tuesday, you can't come again on Wednesday).  Recall that
the final exam replaces your weakest grade, if it is better.  Thus, if you are happy with your grade, you do not have to take the final exam.

All exam solutions and blank exams will be available on the "scores and solutions" page.  If you study past exams, the final should not be a big problem - there will be little new there.

If you need to see me, I will be in the office Mon-Thu 9:00-3:00 (with the exception of final exams Tue, Wed, Thu 10:30-12:30).

Good luck on finals!

Due to closure of Faculty Hall, exam 4, scheduled for Wednesday, has been moved to Friday.  You will be notified of the schedule to pick up your grades ahead of taking the final.

This schedule, of course, assumes that Faculty Hall will be in operation on Friday.  If it isn't, visit this page for an update.

Homework has been assigned up to 4.3.  Soon, we will finish the chapter and it will be time for an exam.  Let's be thinking about the week after next.

You may find the solutions of worksheet 4 on the "scores and solutions" page.  I compiled all the results of your group experiments.  Overall, PE-PT is small, owing to the large number of experiments (52 students x 50 rolls = 2600 rolls), and in no place is it bigger than
PE-PT for my own 50 rolls.

Exam 1 has passed in an OK way, with averages somewhat above what I typically see on such an exam.  You can get the statistics and solutions to Exam 1 on the "scores and solutions" page.

On Monday, we will finish the in-class worksheet that we started on Friday.

Avail yourselves to the resources on the "scores and solutions" page: sample exam 1, solutions of worksheets so far, blank worksheets given so far.  You can also see how well your class did on the worksheets.  Actually, those scores are reason for concern!  So make sure you study for the test!

I will be in the office 9:45-10:30 on Monday, if anyone has last-minute questions.
