FINAL
EXAMINATION Fall 2012 – SAMPLE ANSWERS: (Click Here)
The PDF file you download and
view contains all marks for (a) Laboratory Attendance, (b) Laboratory
Exercises, (c) Project, (d) Midterm #1, and (e) Midterm #2. The marks are sorted in ascending order by
student ID.
As stated in lectures,
the two midterm examinations are corrected for the entire class by a factor of
+4 for Midterm #1 and +2 for Midterm #2.
The marks file contains raw scores
(that is, the original mark received, without the correction factor) – each
student should add the correction factors before calculating your weighted
partial total mark. To calculate the
overall mark for the Laboratories as well as the weights for each evaluative
component (ie. Labs, Project, Midterms, Final), read the Course Outline. To illustrate the calculation of the Lab
mark, use the following approach (also explained in the marks file):
Lab Mark = Attendance + Lab_Exercises
= (Sum of lab attendance marks + 1)/10 + (Sum of lab exercise marks)/10
Note that each lab attendance mark is either 0 or 1, hence the maximum
(Sum of lab attendance marks) is 9 with an extra bonus 1 added. Dividing by 10 gives a mark between 0 and 1
(inclusive). Each lab exercise was
marked out of 10 and there were 9 exercises.
Thus, the maximum (Sum of lab exercise marks) is 90 and dividing by 10
gives a mark between 0 and 9 (inclusive).
Adding these two mark components gives the Lab Mark between 0 and 10
(inclusive).
Projects were due no
later than Thursday, November 22, 2012 and had to be presented for evaluation
in the lab scheduled from 1:00pm to 2:20pm on that day. Projects that were not
submitted by that time, and in person, received marks of 0.
Students should check the marks file for completeness and accuracy. Note that some laboratory exercise marks may
be juxtaposed (ie. interchanged) with other lab marks
– in such cases, it is important that a complete set of marks is recorded, not
the order of the marks. Report all
errors to Dr. Kent (rkent@uwindsor.ca) by email. These can be verified after the Final
Examination (see below or consult the Registrar for time/date of the Final
Exam).
Sample solutions for
lab exercises have been posted for labs #1 to #9.

Sample examinations (taken
from previous semester course offerings) are provided only as an additional set
of exercises. There may be absolutely no
relationship between these samples and the actual examinations that will be
administered during this course.
Students are strongly advised against “studying for the examination” – a
technique that works adversely to effective learning and academic achievement. However, if you attempt all questions
independently you can test yourself on the correct answers.
