Your final grades have been submitted to the registrar. You can see the grade breakdown in Blackboard’s gradebook. Check the OpenLab grading page for the grading scheme. The item labelled “Spring Break Project” is the maximum of two grades, either your code-breaking assignment or your Quiz #7 (the one based on your independent study over spring break).
A number of you have final exam grades that are better than your in-class test grades. I’m glad you prepared so well! Please remember that you are all capable of earning the grades that you want, it just takes consistent hard work throughout the semester. Have a great summer and best of luck in the future!

The course outline contains a list of all textbook sections that can appear on the final exam. Your exam will not have questions from 11.3, 11.4, or 11.5, but all other sections are fair game.
Remember that Tuesday’s class is reserved as a review session. I am not preparing anything for this class. You should pretend that the final exam is on Tuesday. That way we can use the time to discuss only the topics that you all are still struggling with. Practice problems from the homework, quizzes, and tests.
I will hold my usual office hours on Tuesday: 11am-1pm in N707.
Your final exam will be given during usual class time on Thursday, May 25 (only one more week!).
Please go ahead and submit solutions for Test #3 questions as OpenLab posts. Don’t forget to select the “Test #3” category from the right-hand side of the screen before publishing your post.
The deadline to post is 2:15pm on Thursday, May 25.
Just a reminder…from section 5.4
- add #18, 21, 22
- subtract #30, 46, 50-52
The updated homework list is then
#1-5 (odd), 7-10, 16, 18, 21, 22, 29, 36
This week’s math club talk is about Turing Machines and should be of interest to those studying computer science or computer systems.
The club meets on Thursdays in N719 from 12:45 to 2pm (and provides you with free pizza!).
You can find the abstract for all the talks here: https://sites.google.com/site/mathclubcitytech/
I hope everyone had a good break!
- Our regular office hours and class hours resume tomorrow (Tuesday).
- Bring the files for your MATLAB assignment with you to class tomorrow.
- Quiz #7 on Thursday will cover material/homework from 4.5, 4.6, 10.1, 10.2, and 10.4.
- There is a forum on campus at 12:45 tomorrow for students with questions/concerns about immigration rights. Information here. If this issue affects you or someone you know, I encourage you to attend the forum.
I hope everyone is enjoying the break so far!
Test #2 and midterm grades are now available in Blackboard.
Your midterm grade is a rough calculation of how you are doing in the class so far. To calculate it, each of your two tests is worth one third and your quiz average and participation are each worth one sixth.
I’m enjoying breaking your codes so far. Don’t forget about your spring break assignments. See you on April 25!
