One big happy family for this week’s post, so one post for both sections. Yay!
Tuesday December 11 was our last class meeting for both sections. (Re)read my guide to final exams, “Zen and the Art of Finals” (PDF), which will help you begin to prepare for our final (and hopefully others as well). It summarizes much of what was in my prep sessions.
As a reminder, the final for the DAY CLASS is scheduled for Tuesday, December 18, 3:45-5:45 PM in the regular classroom.
The final for the NIGHT CLASS is scheduled for THURSDAY, December 20, 8-10 PM in the regular classroom.
If you want to take your exam with a different class than yours, that’s fine: just let me know and show up at the right time.
You might want to check Lehman’s exam schedule (PDF file) for your other classes as well. Be sure to arrange for childcare/ time off work/ whatever you need to do now, as there will be no make-ups, except for extraordinary circumstances. Unless you can provide a hospital or arrest record (your own, not a family member’s), you get no make-up. “My family bought plane tickets to go on vacation” or similar is not an extraordinary circumstance in my book. Consider college a job and be up front with family, friends, etc. about what that commitment means. My other class section is taking the test in the evening, however. You can take it with them if you want. email me for details on that option.
If I still owe you a paper, you’ll get it back via email sometime this week: same as with the first paper.
