THE FINAL EXAM IS COMING SOON!

• The exam takes place in our main classroom (Boyd 203).

• Section 41458: WEDNESDAY MAY 8 from 8am to 11am
• Expect around 13-15 questions, for 3 hours of time.
• There should be about 4 questions based on each of the prior three tests, as well as 2 vector questions.
• You will have a short answer question at the very beginning to check your understanding of the terminology used in class! (See the beginning of Test 3 #1(a), for example, for an idea of what that might be like.)
• There are no specific review sheets or problem sets I will create for the final exam.
• Look at the vector review materials from Friday of this week though.
• Practice problems are important, but you mostly want to practice your problem-reading skills! Go back to your old paper HW sets and exams, and ask yourself "What cues in the problem suggest which approach to use? What was this problem trying to emphasize, compared to other problems in my homework?"
• Policies for the final exam:
• You will have to leave your bookbags at the side of the room once you start your test.
• Turn any phones or smart watches off, and leave them inside your bags.
• Restroom breaks are allowed, but I will only allow one person to leave at a time, barring any extreme circumstances.
