Midterm

Postby Jenny Chau 1I » Thu Jan 21, 2021 4:17 pm

I heard the midterm will be taken during lecture instead of discussion section this time but will we be taking them at our respective lecture time or one general lecture time?

I was wondering the same thing, and also, will anything from Week 4 be on the first midterm or is it only covering everything up to the lecture on 1/22 (end of Week 3)?

I think we are taking them at our respective lecture times because my TA said to arrive at 10:45 AM for mine and my lecture is usually 11:00 AM.

From what I remember about 14A, the content on the midterm was usually around up to week 3, a week before the midterm. And I'm guessing this was because he held the midterms during discussion. But because this time we're all doing it on Friday, I'm not sure if some Week 4 content will be included.

I think we'll take them during the lecture that we are enrolled in! I believe Dr. Lavelle told us at the beginning of the quarter that we shouldn't enroll in another class during our lecture for this reason.

I think he will probably tell us during lectures where the midterm material ends. I think during 14A he also sent an email making it clear closer to the date of the exam.

To answer both questions of concern, I think the midterm will be taken in our respective lecture times. The material covered in our upcoming exam will probably feature stuff up until the end of Week 3; that's how it was done in 14A, so I assume the same will be done here.

I think that the midterm will be taken during our respective lecture times but Dr. Lavelle still hasn't indicated what the cutoff is for midterm 1. In 14A he had a cutoff about a week before the midterm but it might be different since we are now taking the test during lecture instead of discussion sessions.

Yes, the TAs will be proctoring us during the midterm. I'm not sure if they will use the links from our sections or will provide us a new one though.

Since he combined the sapling for week 3 and week 4 to be done on week 4, I though he would only include material from the sapling week 1 and 2? Is this assumption incorrect?

That could very well be the case. The only way we could be 100% certain of the content that will be on the midterm would be contacting Dr. Lavelle himself. I'm pretty sure that he'll clarify the content that will be covered in an upcoming email some time soon. In either case, it's still good to get ahead of the curve by getting some exposure to Week 3 and 4 content.

Yes, we get to use the equation sheet he has on his website for the midterm.
