21-260: Final Wrap Up

Well... All the exams have been graded, and final grades have been recorded. I've posted your final averages on the blackboard site. In most cases Blackboard seems to calculate the same average I do. (Blackboard sometimes seem to insist on doing it's own thing.) One exception is for those of you who have turned in a late written homework assignment. The Blackboard average does not account for any penalties which may apply.

You can see the grade cutoffs for the final exam, as well as for your final averages, on this page of statistics for the course.

Office Hours for finals week

My office hours this week will be in Wean Hall 6201 or a nearby comfortable location at

Tuesday 6:00 - 7:00 pm
Wednesday 12:30 - 1:30 pm, 6:00 - 7:00 pm
Thursday 11:30am - 1:00pm

unfortunately I have a couple of finals of my own on Tuesday, so I won't be able to meet with people during the morning. I may, possibly, perhaps, have the most recent homework graded by Tuesday evening. It will definitely be done by my office hours on Wednesday.

21-260: Final Exam

I've posted a Review Page for the final exam. The Final Exam is cumulative. The linked review page only covers the material since Exam #3. You should review the material on the review pages for Exam #1, Exam #2 and Exam #3 to ensure you are prepared for the Final Exam.

UPDATE: You can ignore problems #9 and #11b on the "Old Exam Problems" from the Final Exam Review Page. The Heat Equation will not be covered.

21-260: Final Exam

Our final exam will be given on Thursday, December 10 from 5:30-8:30pm in UC McConomy. Students who have a Legitimate Conflict may take a makeup exam on Friday, December 11 from 1:00-4:00pm in UC McConomy (with students taking their 21-127 exam).

By "Legitimate Conflict" I mean (1) two exams scheduled at the same time, (2) three consecutive exams, (3) a University sponsored trip, or (4) other situations that I deem to be roughly similar in gravity to these. You must contact me in advance if you wish to take the makeup exam.
