W2017
Final Exam


Worth: 40%


Due: Wednesday April 26 8:00AM

Time, Place and Exam Policies
All this information can be found on the
Ryerson Exam Page.
This exam will follow the
new Ryerson Exam procedures
(even though it is not held at Mattamy)
Format
The format will be short essay questions, similar to the midterms
except that it will be longer because the exam is 3 hours long.
Material
The material covered is
 All the material listed in the
Lecture material page.
Note that the "Other" column is supplementary material used during the lectures.
You are not expected to know the Wikipedia material.
 All three assignments. Please note that you will not be asked to
write a proof as difficult as the ones in your first assignment.
You may be asked to write a proof which is of similar difficulty to the one
in the first midterm.
 All the material in the two midterms.
The final exam covers all the material in the course. However, please note that because there has been
so far very little assessment of counting and probabilities, with only one question on the third assignment,
this material may be worth more than 25% of the final exam.
Also note that the final exam is divided into 4 parts ordered chronologically as the material was covered in the course.
You might find it helpful to read the whole exam and start with the sections you find easiest.
Aids
You can bring a formula sheet to the exam:
one doubledsided lettersized page with anything that you want on it.
You can handwrite it or print it, as you wish, but you will not be allowed to bring other aids,
such as magnifiers, to assist looking at it.
Final Exam Office Hours
Here are all my office hours during the final exam period:
 Friday April 21 1012 and 15: Priority will be given to CPS616 students
 Tuesday April 25 1012 and 15: Priority will be given to CPS420 students.
I will answer questions in person during these office hours and not by email.
CPS420 is running for the first time in W2017.
Therefore there are no past final exams for this course.
