Arithmetic Error in Syllabus

A student just pointed out to me that the distribution for lab assignments adds up to 41, not 40. I like the distribution as stated, so to fix the problem, I am taking away 1% from the Communications assignment, meaning it will only be worth 9% of your overall grade and the labs will be worth 41%.

Change in Room for Exam Review 4/1

Please note that the exam review session on 4/1 has been moved to 242 Bell (not 224 Bell as usual). This change only effects 4/1.

Friday, March 21st - Lab 7 QA session

There will be no formal lecture, but the TAs will be in class on Friday to host an informal Lab 7 question and answer and advice session. Please attend if you are interested in more information about Lab 7.

No lecture Friday, March 21st & Communications Assignment Change of Dates

Lecture will not meet on Friday, March 21st. Labs will meet as normal. Lectures resume on 3/24.

Also, please note that due to the changes in due dates for Labs 7 & 8, the presentations and papers are due at different times than originally stated. The new due dates are reflected in the Communications page and the schedule pages.

Lab 8 is now posted and the grading guidelines for Labs 5, 6, 7, and 8 are now posted.

Changes in some due dates

There will be some changes to the due dates of Labs 7, 8, 9. Early points for Labs 7 & 8 will be replaced with the ability to earn a grade greater than 100% for submitting early. Early points will remain on Lab 9 for the final submission. Please see lab descriptions and schedule for further information. Only Lab 7 is posted at this time.

Regrading of Exam 4 (Pink version only)

If you lost points on Question 2 part e and had the pink exam, please turn in the exam for a possible regrade. There was a mismatch between the code given and the directions of part e that could have caused some confusion. All papers wishing to be regraded must be turned in by Wednesday 2/24.
