Midterm grades are available on WebCampus

Posted on February 25th, 2010 by James

You can see your midterm grades on WebCampus along with your estimated Mid-Semester Letter Grades.
These letter grades are based on over 35 points (5 for proposals, 20 for midterm, and 10 for class participation). You class participation points are not final, it can still fluctuate in either way.

Midterm test is on Feb 24 during class hours

Posted on February 19th, 2010 by James

Midterm test will include chapters 1 through 5 inclusive. In other words, it covers all class from the beginning to Feb 17 (inclusive).
The test will be open source, you can bring your notes, books, slides, computer (as long as you do NOT connect to Internet).
If you have any questions email me at
And remember, if you were in the class physically and mentally, then you do not need to study. I will test not how much you can memorize but how much you have learned.
I will make a brief review on Monday's class on Feb 22.
