Journal Assignments Required for Exam 1
Professor: Erika L.C. King
Office: Lansing 304
Our first exam is Tuesday (February 21) 7:15PM-9:15PM in Gulick 206A. You will turn in your journal at the beginning of the exam. I will
randomly grade three to five of the entries
completely. Then I will count to see how many total entries you have. Note that it is highly likely that
the graded entries will be those things we did not specifically go over in class or have on a quiz. Remember to follow the
journal guidelines (hightlighting exercise/problem numbers or the start of a question, etc.).
