The Final Exam is on Thursday, Dec 16, 7:00-9:00 pm in the Balcony of WTHR 200

Here is a map to find WTHR and here is a seating chart
for our section. The door to the balcony of WTHR 200
is on the third floor and is marked Balcony 200.

The exam is a 20 question multiple choice exam covering
the whole course. Each problem is worth 10 points.

You will need number 2 pencils for the Final Exam
for filling in a mark-sense answer sheet. Be sure
to bring an eraser and your PUID. You will need to
bubble in your TEN DIGIT PUID (which starts with
two zeroes) on the scantron and our four digit
section number 0111.

The last page of the exam will be this Table of Laplace transforms.
