Information About the Final Exam

Final Exam: As described in Dr. Paulsen's syllabus, the final exam will consist of two parts: An In-Class part worth 100 points, and a Take Home part worth 100 points. Half of the In-Class exam will be written by Dr. Tomforde and cover Chapters 4 and 5, and the other half of the In-Class exam will be written by Dr. Paulsen and cover Chapters 1--3. Likewise, half of the In-Class exam will be written by Dr. Tomforde and cover Chapters 4 and 5, and the other half of the In-Class exam will be written by Dr. Paulsen and cover Chapters 1--3.

I have written my portion of the parts of final exam, and practice exams (together with solutions) can be obtained here: I believe Dr. Paulsen will be writing practice versions of his halves of the exams as well, and when he gives them to me I will post them here.
