Midterm Exam: The midterm exam will be worth 100 points.
Makeup exams will only be offered to those with a legitimate excuse.
If the University closes on 6 February, the midterm exam will be
given the next lecture time the class meets. You may appeal the
score you receive on the midterm exam by submitting your exam plus
a note stating which problems you wish to have regraded to Professor
Levermore. An appeal must be made by February 20.
Final Exam: The Final Exam will be worth 200 points.
It will be based on the entire course. If you miss the Final Exam,
and if by the next day you present a legitimate, welldocumented
excuse showing that for reasons beyond your control it was absolutely
impossible for you to take the Final Exam, and if you have taken the
midterm exam and have a C or better at the time of the Final Exam,
then you will receive a grade of I for the course. In all
other cases a score of zero will be assigned for the Final Exam and
your course grade will be evaluated accordingly. If the University
closes on the day of a scheduled final exam, then it will be given
whenever the University reschedules it.

Solutions to the sample problems will be posted on this web page
shortly before the midterm exam. The sample problems for an exam
can help you in several ways:
 They give you a relatively compact yet comprehensive set of
problems upon which you can focus your study. They cover
most of the material that might be on the exam, so serve as
a good review of everything. This is why they are "sample
problems" rather than a "sample exam".
 They use the wording of questions that will be used on the
exam.
 The posted solutions will show what is expected of you.
This leaves little room for excuses like you "did not
understand a question" or "did not understand how far to
carry out an answer".
