Announcements Dec 17 We exported the grades from Mallard and we will do the curves as explained in the syllabus, so do not even pay attention to Mallard. The final was a little bit harder than the midterms. The average is 67.77 and the median is 70.00. Dec 15 HW11 grades are now posted in Mallard Dec 13 There were some problems with the iclicker grades that should have been fixed now. If you attended all the lectures you should have a 5 (if you missed 3 lectures you still have 5). After that, I have pro-rated based on the number of lectures where you came and voted (if you missed 4, I counted as only missing 1). We will shortly (later today) add another entry into mallard that would be extra credit. This will be counted after doing the curves and takes into account how many times you selected the right answer. The maximum value that you can have here if all your answers were correct is 4 (only two students have a 4 for that entry). Notice that if you missed classes and i-clicker was used, it is not possible to get the maximum of 4 (it is very difficult to take that into account since each class has a different number of questions). I have received a couple of emails from students that apparently came to class and have a 0 value in i-clicker. Send me an email with your i-clicker number if you are in that situation and I will check it. Notice that if you did not register your i-clicker I cannot get your points, as there is no way for me to match your id with your i-clicker number. Dec 8 The final exam will be held on Monday night, December 13 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Students with last names beginning with A - N SIEBL (Siebel Center), room 1404.
