Quiz 3 and the final exam will be conducted like Quiz 2: I will upload a pdf of the problems at 12:01am the day of the exam, and you must submit your exam by 11:59pm the same day. You submit your exam by emailing me scans or photos of your handwritten solutions with all your work shown (you don’t have to write your work and solutions on the exam itself, if printing is a hassle). If you are writing your solutions on physical paper, please use the Genius Scan app (free on iOS and Android) to make a pdf to email me.
For both Quiz 3 and the final, you can refer to your notes, the textbook, the video lectures, and past assignments during the exam. However, you cannot work with other students. You can use a four-function calculator or scientific calculator, but nothing more powerful than a scientific calculator (e.g., no graphing calculators).
Quiz 3 will be on Wednesday, December 9. It covers lectures 17 through 23. Here are some review problems for Quiz 3. You should also consider the problem sets to be additional review problems.
The final exam will be on Wednesday, December 16. It will be cumulative. Here are some review problems for the final. You should also consider all problem sets to be additional review problems.
A collective of CUNY students and teachers called CUNY Struggle made a zine to contextualize the George Floyd protests with short excerpts from radical Black activists and writers. Choose up to three excerpts, and for each excerpt, email me your thoughts (one to two sentences per excerpt) on how the piece connects or doesn't connect to the present. Ideally, choose at least one from before 1960 and at least one from after. The extra credit is due on Friday, December 18, at 11:59pm.
For each excerpt you comment on, you will get 5% toward your Quiz 3 grade. E.g., if you only comment on one excerpt, you get 5%. If you comment on three excerpts (the maximum allowed for this extra credit), you get 15%. (Note that if your Quiz 3 grade is your lowest grade before applying the extra credit, then it will be dropped and extra credit will be applied to another quiz.)
