syllabus for the course


Here is the final exam. Here are the exam and paper grades. Course grades are on peoplesoft.


Here are the final exam solutions.


You should be thinking about a term-paper topic. Pick a section of the book not on the syllabus to explore, or a section on the syllabus to explore more deeply than the text did. Although the paper will not be due until May 2, I will ask you to tell me your topic by March 19 and submit an outline by April 16, and will hold you to that topic and outline unless you give me a very good reason to switch.
