Date: March 16, 2015 at 10:38:18 PM PDT Subject: MATH 194 - Bowers [WI15]: Math 194 Finals Week Information Dear Math 194 Students, The Final Exam is 18 Mar 2015 (Wed) 3:00p - 5:00p. (Location: CSB 002 or PETER 104 -- See Ted for seat assignment.) I have a few announcements related to Finals Week: (1) Solutions to each homework assignment can be found posted in Ted. (The midterm exam, too.) (2) The CAPE Response Rate has surpassed 70%! This means we will drop the lowest homework score. (The lowest score will be determined based on percentage scores.) (3) Every student has an assigned seat for the exam. Check in the Ted Grade Center for your seat assignment. If your seat assignment is cut off, that means you are using a mobile device. Try using a desktop. (4) Bring a Blue Book and your student ID. We will be checking IDs *during* the exam. (5) The exam probably has fewer questions than you expect, but it will test all the things! (Well, almost all...) Sincerely, Ol' Doc Bowers
