The final exam is scheduled for Tuesday, December 20th from 8:00-9:50AM; it is comprehensive and is worth 40% of your final grade. Participation on the in-class development project and related homework assignments is worth 40%, thus attendance at every class meeting is mandatory and essential if you want to keep up.
