SNOW DAY plans
If you are in my Monday-Thursday 1:00 class, you
will take the test Monday, December 9th in class. If you are in my
Tuesday-Thursday 10:00 class, here are your options:
Take the test with my Monday-Thursday class, which
meets from 1:00-2:15 pm in Barbelin 40 (in the basement of Barbelin).
Take the test Friday (the 6th) at 3:00-5:00 pm.
If you choose this option, report to my office, Barbelin 229. You
may start the test anywhere from 3:00 to 4:00, and have 75 minutes to complete
If neither of these times works for you, and you
wish to take the test, contact me by e-mail
before 12:00 noon on Friday to schedule a makeup.
Do not take the test. In this case you will
have only two test grades, and your total midterm grade (out of 200 points)
will be computed by the formula
2 x ( (2/3) x (higher
of your two test grades) + (1/3) x (lower of your two test
For example, if you scored a 66 on the first test
and 81 on the second, your grade would be
2 x ( (2/3) x 81 +
(1/3) x 66 ) = 2 x ( 54 + 22 ) = 152
152 out of 200 gives you 76%.
Important. If you choose this option
you should stop by my office Tuesday morning or later to pick up a copy
of the test, with solutions, to use as a study guide.
