The course is over and the grades are in! You can see all the statistics on the "scores and docs" page including the distribution of the final grades. All the solutions to our exams there, too.
I greatly enjoyed teaching this course - special thanks to students, and there were a good number of you who participated in class discussion - you always make my job easier and more enjoyable!
Have a wonderful break!
Exam 5 and the final exam will be given on Thursday at 1:30PM in our usual classroom. For exam 5 information, see message below. The final will cover everything we did this semester and will have 4 pages with questions similar to the ones on our five exams. Thus, the best first step in studying for the final is to make sure you can do all the problems on the exams we had so far. If you find you have trouble with some questions, you can review the corresponding section. Recall that the final exam grade replaces your two weakest exam grades only if it is better. You don't have to take the final exam if you feel confident in your score on exam 5, but it probably wouldn't hurt, just in case.
If you need to see me, here are my office hours for finals week:
Monday 10:00-3:00, Tuesday 11:00-2:00, Wednesday 10:00-3:00, Thursday 10:00-1:30
Good luck on finals!

As everyone is looking ahead to final grades, I have updated the grade computer page to reflect the grade structure in this course. Try it! Enter your information, see what you current overall grade is, enter hypothetical exam 4 and 5 grades to see what your final grade may be and whether it could be improved by taking the final exam.
Expect exam 4 week after next.
