Notes and Comments

This section was unused during the semester, but it is an ideal place for a report on the final exam and course grades. The figure below compares the final exam with the total of all classwork. Grades were based on clusters in the sum of these two scores, but this plot helped to interpret those totals by providing a graphical view of the components.

There were only two higher grades, but five lower grades. Here are details of individual problems (using a scaled average that gives each problem a basis of 10 points.
