    • You have a total of four late days that you can use throughout the quarter as you need them, where a late day means anything between 1 second and 23 hours 59 minutes and 59 seconds past a deadline.

  • Midterm (30%) : Will be held on Friday November 1 during the lecture. The midterm is closed book, but you may use a double-sided “cheat sheet”.

  • Final (35%) : Will be held on Thursday December 12, 11:30am – 2:30pm in TBD. It must be taken at the scheduled time and location. To turn in your completed final examination, you must present a valid UCSD ID at the time the examination papers are handed to the instructor; papers not accompanied by a valid UCSD ID will not be accepted.

    • Since the final is cumulative, your midterm grade will be calculated as midterm > 0 ? max(final, midterm) : 0. This means that you get a second chance if you don’t do well on the midterm but you must show up to both the midterm and the final.
