Final
I will have extended office hours:
 102, Wednesday (April 22), Friday (April 24), Monday (April 27).
Final Exam details:
 46 pm, Monday, April 27, 1084 East Hall (class room).
 The Final Exam is cumulative. It will consist of about 10 questions
distributed as follows:
 Chapters 68: 56 questions,
 Chapters 45: 2 questions,
 Chapters 13: 2 questions
 Three 3x5 cards of notes are allowed.
 The exam is closed book.
 No calculators will be allowed.
 The best preparation is to review homework from Chapters 68
and review the SelfTest problems. I have pickedout those SelfTest
problems from each Chapter (except for Chapter 8) which provide
a good representation of the content of the final.
 Chapter 7: 3, 4, 11, 15, 22, 24.
 Chapter 6: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 14, 15.
 Chapter 5: 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 19.
 Chapter 4: 5, 9, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19.
 Chapter 3: 1, 2, 4, 9, 14, 16, 19, 20.
 Chapter 2: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 17.
 Chapter 1: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, 16.
You may also want to look at previous final exams from other Math 425 classes (I will design this midterm to be comparable in length and level of difficulty.)
Final: Statistics
Problem 6 (15 points) and Problem 8a (5 points) were dropped from the final score, reducing the total possible points to 130. However, those who did well on these problems were given bonus points. Everyone benefited by the change in scoring.
