For the final exam you should bring your Washington University Photo ID to exams. Proctors will
check student's IDs. For all the exams, you may bring a 3" x 5" (index card) "cheat sheet." You may write on both sides and include any information, typed or handwritten. It will be helpful to bring a basic scientific calculator to the exams. A simple calculator without graphing or other special features will be perfectly fine. I won't place any restrictions for the type of calculator you may bring to the inclass exams, but for the final exam you should not bring a graphing calculator. Generally speaking, you should be prepared to give exact number solutions to problems, rather than decimal approximations. For example, pi/e may be preferred to 1.558. The Final Exam, but not the two midsemester exams, will be multiple choice. (In a large class like this one, a computer graded exam will help me subit the final grades on time.) 
Important:
There is no makeup exam! If you have to miss an exam for a
serious reason (illness, bereavement), a score for the missed exam will
be assigned to you by statistical regression.
If you need to be away at an exam date because of a university sporting event or field trip, then you may arrange for your coach or professor to administer the exam. All excused absences must be granted by Blake Thornton. Make sure to plan your travels around the exam dates. Those dates cannot be changed for reasons of traveling convenience.
