Important Information for Exam 1

Date, Time: The 1st exam will be held on Wednesday October 4th, 2006. The Exam will start prompty at 3:30pm and will end at 4:50pm so that we have enough time to collect the exams and be out of the room by 5:00pm.

Rooms: We will have two rooms for the exam:

If your last name begins with the letters A-M, your room is WEL 2.224 (this is the regular lecture hall).
If your last name begins with the letters N-Z, your room is WCH 1.120.

Exam Protocol: Each student must show their UT-ID when he/she enters the examination room. In addition, each student will show their UT-ID to a TA when he/she turns in their exam. The exam will be closed book, with one exception: the student may bring into the exam three sheets of paper on which the student is free to write anything he/she wishes. All three sheets must be original sheets in the student's own handwriting. The student may not have in his/her possession during the exam a calculator, a mobile phone, or any other mechanism that in the view of the instructor can distract from a fair and balanced examination.

Review Session: Dr. Patt will conduct a review session on Sunday October 1st. The review session will will begin at 2:00pm and will take place in WEL 2.224 (our regular lecture hall). The review session will not go past 6:30pm since we have to give up the room at that time. Students are free to come whenever they want and leave whenever they want.

Extra office hours: There will not be class on Monday October 2nd. Instead, the TAs will be holding extra office hours on Monday and Tuesday.
