Final review

April 14th, 2010

The final day of class has arrived! It’s been a pleasure spending the semester with you all, discovering how powerful and useful the computer can be. In preparation for the final exam (April 22nd), I’ve put together a final review. Solutions will be posted on Friday. Also, the database referred to in part 4 is still under construction and should be ready by tomorrow.

Submit a course evaluation!

April 12th, 2010

Course evaluations are an excellent form of feedback to help me understand ways in which I can improve my teaching as well as this course. As a result, I would really appreciate it if each of you could submit a course evaluation. The deadline is April 14, and you can do them online. Here are the instructions:

- Log into your MINERVA account where a pop-up window will appear prompting you to fill out evaluations.

If no pop-up window appears, you can access the course evaluations by:
1. Selecting Student Menu
2. Clicking on Mercury Online Course Evaluation Menu
3. Then on Submit your course evaluations
4. Problems with Minerva/Mercury? Contact: Minerva Help Line (http://www.mcgill.ca/minerva-students/help/)

Ignore problem 2.3 on HW #6

March 23rd, 2010

Nina correctly pointed out that taking the log of a negative number raises some problems. It’s a badly written question, so consider it removed from this assignment. A version of it that makes more sense will appear in the next homework assignment. Sorry about that!

Lecture 14 posted

Lecture 14 is now posted and available for viewing. You’ll likely need it to complete Homework 6.
