SKIP PAST THE ANNOUNCEMENTS if you so desire.
._. (or to near the bottom)
- 21 Dec: Grades are submitted and posted. I added 20 points
to the final exam scores (in addition to 15 for Test C).
Then the grades are based on a straight
percentage of the total scores (base of 700) as originally announced.
I am never happy with final exam scores, but these results are typical
for my sections of this course. Many of you still need to (1) master
the notation for vector fields and surface integrals, (2) recognize
when an integral is zero by symmetry,
(3) not run in panic from the word "prove".
- 18 Dec: The final exam solution key is now posted below.
Grades will be posted sometime over the weekend.
- 15 Dec: Homework grades are on a basis of 180; your raw
score total will multiplied by 0.138 = 180/1300. Class participation
(and attendance) grades are on a basis of 20; what you see in eCampus
is what you get.
- 10 Dec: Final office hours: I expect to be in the office
Thursday and Friday afternoons (11 and 12 Dec), roughly from 2 to 5.
- 2 Dec: Announcement of
Club meeting Tuesday, 9 Dec, 7 pm, BLOC 169.
- 16 Nov: I will miss the office hour on Tuesday, 18 Nov,
because of jury service.
- 10 Oct: I will be unable to meet my office hour at 3:00
on Tuesday, Oct. 14. Instead, I will be in my office that day between
1:00 and 2:00.
- 1 Oct: I may be late to my office hour on Monday, Oct 6.
(I need to attend a graduate student's final oral exam the previous hour.)
- 8 Sep: First AMUSE
seminar of the semester will be Wed 10 Sep, 6-7 pm, BLOC 166.
More information about
AMUSE is here.
- 8 Sep: There is a linear algebra help session, 5:00-7:30 pm, BLOC 117,
