**Announcements** (reverse chronological order)

*10 May:*Solutions to the final exam have been posted in the proper place below.*9 May:*Grades have been reported and are posted in eLearning. Comments:- The total non-W homework score got multiplied by 80/270 to fit the scale announced in the syllabus.
- I added 5 points to the test total, not because I thought that scores on the final were low, but because I graded the essay question in such a way that it was almost impossible to get a perfect score on it.
- Adding the 5 points in the eLearning spreadsheet somehow produced two spurious "students" with a total score of 5. Therefore, the average, median, and standard deviation reported on the histogram pages for test total and course total are incorrect.

*3 May:*added an item to the FAQ list (immediately below).*2 May:*Frequently asked questions:- The take-home question is worth 40 points (out of the 150).
- Class participation points will be posted once I finish grading the term papers (which I'll return at the exam). The scores I kept in class will be diluted by points for class attendance, so those are not a big deal.
- Arc-length formulas (Riemannian geometry) will be treated by a bonus or choice problem, as in previous years. It is not in the book or on the syllabus, but I think you should be rewarded if you paid attention in class and tried to understand what was going on.
- Use Greenberg's statement of the
*alternate interior angle theorem*, not anything incompatible that you may find in another book (or web page)!

- Mon 5/6: 2:00-4:30; if I am not in my office, come to BLOC 627 that day.
