Final Exam

The final exam will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 9 from 1--4pm in Wean Hall 5409. The exam will be open book and open notes. Compared to the midterm, the problems will be more open-ended and requiring deeper thinking. As examples, here are electronic versions of the past two finals. Of course, the coverage of the course has changed, so the problems here aren't all suitable for this term:
