Announcements (reverse chronological order)
- May 10: Grades will very soon be visible in eCampus.
(Graduating senior grades have been reported to Howdy.) Please note:

- Some day I'll put up a final exam key with the answers for the
questions on the first page. (The other pages are either essays or
regurgitations of things that are in the book and summarized on older
test keys.) Almost nobody understood the Dehn question: The Dehn models
are hyperbolic (have nonunique parallels) but don't have the
(See the chart in the Halsted report.)

(eCampus is not computing statistics for final grades properly, so the
stats are not displayed.)

[These will become available at the links below as the course
develops. Analogues from previous semesters are visible on the old home
