1 Readings, Assignments, Labs, and ToDo

1.1 Midterm Test #2

1.2 Final Exam 8am Monday December 8

The final exam schedule is posted on the Course Home Page. Your final exam is three hours long, starting at 8am, in T117/119. It will be 180 multiple-choice questions. There will be a set of practice questions, and a quiz on those questions, posted before the exam.

1.3 Assignments and Lab work this week

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

1.3.1 Worksheets

The worksheets are available in four formats: Open Office (ODT), PDF, HTML, and Text. Only the Open Office format allows you “fill in the blanks” in the worksheet. The PDF format looks good but doesn’t allow you to type into the blanks in the worksheet. The HTML format is crude but useful for quick for viewing online.

Do NOT open the ODT files using any Microsoft products; they will mangle the format and mis-number the questions. Use the free Libre Office or Open Office programs to open these ODT documents. On campus, you can download Libre Office here.
