There will be a midterm and a final exam. The midterm is Friday, March 13.

The final is Friday, May 1; the scheduled time is 9:00-11:00. The final will, like the midterm, be on Sakai, and I'll let you pick any 2-hour time period between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm (start of the next final).

Study guides for each will be available on Sakai.

There will be regular homework assignments. The homework will be worth about 20-30% of your grade, with the midterm and final making up 70-80%. The final will be worth a little more than the midterm.
