- Apr 25 : Last presentation by Ram and Belarmino is at 2PM
today. As before, attendance is mandatory.
- Apr 25 : The final exam is now ready. Here are the rules
for the exam and they are included in the exam too:
RULES: You need to send me an email to request when the exam should be
mailed to you. But it can be no later than Thursday 11;59 PM. Your exam
starts the moment the email containing the exam is received by you. You will
have 24 hours from that time to answer it. I expect you to email me your
solutions to the exam questions by the 24-hour deadline. No delays will be
entertained, and no exceptions will be made. This is a STRICT DEADLINE. If you
have questions e-mail me at XXXX@XXX.XXX.XXX.
If you don't hear from me within a hour of emailing your question, you may call
me at XXX.XXX.XXXX (cell). You are strictly forbidden from having any kind of
discussion with anybody about this exam (either in person, by phone, by email,
by SMS, or any other form of communication) during the 24-hour exam period.
I expect nothing short of complete honesty. I am the only person you are
allowed to contact with questions. You are allowed to use
any other resources (notes, books, internet) at your
Note that you need to tell me when you want the exam mailed to
you. The exam is likely to take 6-8 hours of your time and
will require the use of the internet.
