More on final exam

Last year's final, which I discussed on Monday, is here As mentioned on Mon, the final will follow the structure of the midterm, with most of the questions being drawn from the powerpoint slide sets and other web pages discussed in class. There will be one or two questions from each file. Material since the midterm will be covered more. There may be one or two extra questions. The questions will be in random order. Therefore you should bring copies of the slides and other pages discussed to the exam, and should know what material is where.

Grades to date were emailed

They include all homeworks and the midterm, but not the project and final. If you didn't receive an email, then email WRF.

Description of the midterm exam questions

The midterm exam has 1 question from each of the first 17 powerpoint slide sets, and zero or one question from each other page that I link to on the course web site, making 21 equal-weight questions. The questions generally require short answers, e.g., "What happens when you irradiate polywater with N-rays?" Some may have tricks designed to benefit people who understand the topic and to catch people doing superficial pattern matching. A few may require a little extra searching, but this is an open book exam. The exam should be easy if you study.
