- (5-21-20) Please remember that you do not have a final exam for
Math 95; instead you have a "take-home final", which is actually a survey about Math 95,
designed to provide you with an opportunity to reflect on your experiences in
the seminar. Below is the survey in both pdf and doc version; you may type or write
your responses - whatever works best for you.
Please submit your completed survey on gradescope by 11:00am on
Tuesday, June 9th. Your responses are very important to me, and I will
use your constructive criticism to improve the course. Completing this
survey is worth 25% of your final grade.

MGB7YR. Please join the class at gradescope.com
and submit your "Practice Upload" assignment (to make sure
that you will understand how to submit your week ten exam) by 5:00 pm on Tuesday,
May 26. Since you will be handwriting your Week Ten exam, the way to practice
the upload is to take pictures of four pieces of paper with your phone, convert the
files from jpg to pdf, and then upload them to gradescope.
