1 Readings, Assignments, Labs, Tests, and ToDo

1.1 Assignments and Lab work this week

Reminder: There are now two quizzes that you need to complete on Blackboard as part of your term Quiz mark. A third quiz will be posted before the Final Exam.

Check the due date for each assignment and put a reminder in your agenda, calendar, and digital assistant.

1.2 Tests and quizzes

For full marks, read the Test Instructions (all the words) before your final exam.

Attend a free workshop on Preparing for Exams - Test Taking Skills and Test Anxiety April 7 or April 14.

  1. All Quizzes are open until the Final Exam, then they are closed.
    • Quizzes are random samples and thus do not cover all of the questions in the practice test PDF file. Do the PDF file to be fully prepared.
  2. Final Exam: 180 minutes; Tuesday April 21 11am to 2pm in room C144
    • Take a bathroom break before you sit down for three hours!
    • A third set of practice questions is posted. See Practice Tests and Answers. The third quiz, based on this set of questions, will be out soon.
    • The final exam emphasizes material after the second midterm test, but it covers the whole course and therefore includes material from all the practice question sets.
