- Thursday, December 6:
The final exam will be open-book: you can bring any
material you like. It will cover all of the course. There
will be five questions. Each part of each question will
have a percentage listed. For each question, these sum to
25%. Your total score on the exam will be the sum of the
four highest scores for these five questions. Therefore
you need only answer four questions, but you may answer
all five if you wish.

Here are some review questions from Shumway and Stoffer (for the material covered since the mid-term): 3.18, 3.26, 3.27, 3.33, 3.34, 3.38, 3.39, 3.40, 4.3, 4.4, 4.7, 4.16, 4.18, 4.21, 4.23, 4.24, 4.25, 4.27, 4.33, 4.34 (clim-hyd.dat), 5.11, 5.12a-b.

Exam papers will be handed out at 11:10, the exam will go from 11:15 to 12:25. There will be 6 questions. You may answer all six if you wish; your grade will consist of the total from the best five questions. Each part will have a percentage written next to it - the percentage of the grade that it constitutes. Please take notice of this. The percentages reflect the relative significance of the relevant material, not how much time it will take to answer the question.
