Extra Mini Examination to be given on November 4
In order to allow class members to enhance their grades on the examination
portion of the course grading, we will offer the opportunity to take
a mini-exam on Tuesday November 4 at the end of the class period. This
exam will cover only the material covered for the first two
exams, not any of the material covered since then (on probability
applications). The exam will last 1/2 hour, will be approximately 1/2
the length of the previous Exams, and will count 1/2 of those exams
in counting this component of your course grade. Thus, if you take the
Mini Exam (and this is completely up to the discretion of each student,
but if you take it you must turn it in and it will count in your
grade), the exam component of your course grade will be out of
250. This is 100 for each of the exams which count (remember the lowest
is dropped), plus 50 for the Mini Exam.
There will not be any review for the Mini Exam. As a review, be certain
you understand the problems on the first two exams.
