  • The final exam will be on Tuesday, December 18, 9:00-12:00 noon in JBG 2.216 -- the same room as our lectures. Yes, that's the last day of finals week, and no, you can't take it early. The ground rules are the same as for the midterms, except that you are allowed two crib sheets instead of one. Calculators are not allowed.
    On Monday, Dec 17, my office hours will be 1-3PM and Andrew's will be 3-4PM.
