## MATH 2560 - FINAL EXAM INFORMATION

Please check the final exam schedule for the time and location of our final exam. The final is three hours long. NOTE: THE FINAL EXAM TIME HAS CHANGED (ON FEB.18th) PLEASE CHECK THE REGISTRAR'S WEBSITE FOR THE NEW TIME AND LOCATION!

### Rules and Regulations:

• The final exam is closed book. However, you will be allowed to bring in a two-sided, hand-written 8.5"x11" aid sheet with you.
• The other aid allowed is a non-programmable, non-graphing calculator. If you are unsure if your calculator qualifies, you should check in advance of the final. You will need a calculator for the test, preferrably one with statistical functions that allow you to easily calculate means, standard deviations and correlations. You will not be able to bring the manual for your calculator with you, so make sure that you learn how to use these functions ahead of time.
• If you bring a cell phone with you, make sure that it is turned off during the final, and stored away in your backpack.
• Make sure that your writing on the test is legible, and that you fully explain your answers (point-form is OK though). In the short answer portion of the final, answers that are correct but do not give an explanation, will be given no credit.
• Please bring your student card with you for the final exam.

### Coverage:

The final exam will be comprehensive - that is, it will cover all of the material that we have learned since the beginning of the course. Roughly, this means Chapters 1-5, although we did not cover everything in the text book. Please check the coverage page which I have updated over the term for the details. If you are still unclear about something, feel free to ask me.

PRACTICE PROBLEMS: For practice you can do (or re-do) the online quiz problems which I gave out previously.

Here and here are additional practice problems that I posted during the strike. FYI: On the first one (extra.pdf), Q3: about 90%, and Q7a: A and Q8: 0.75.

If you would like more review for Chapters 1 and 2, please let me know, and I will prepare this for you. As one idea, try doing the first test again. The solutions are still posted on the main page!

### Extra help:

If you are having trouble with any concept or idea, make sure that you come and see me, and I will help you. I will have office hours from 3-4pm on WF the week before the final. I will also be "around" on Monday, the day of the final for some last-minute questions.

I have also scheduled an extra review session for Friday, February 20th at 1pm (till 2:30pm). It will be held in Ross N638 (down the hall from my office - same corridor, but closer to the elevators).

You can also get extra help at the stats lab. Their current office hours are from 10:30 to 15:30, M-F and change to 11-3pm M-F during exam time. It is located in Ross S525.
