**Final exam**, Wednesday, December 16, 6-8pm.
The final exam is based everything covered this semester.

The overall score so far is not a running total of the points earned in the course. Rather, it is an estimate of what your final score, out of 1000 points, would be if you continued to perform at the same level. This means that if you have received perfect scores on all work so far, your overall score so far would be 1000, and if you have received 50% scores on all work so far, your overall score so far would be 500.

Your overall score so far can be used to give you a good estimate of what your course grade would be if it were decided right now. Details for how the grades are computed are posted in the syllabus.

Here is the distribution of overall course scores so far, on a 1000-point scale. These scores are based on lecture participation (scores so far at least 85% counted as 100%), discussion participation (scores at least 85% adjusted to 100%), quizzes 1-11 (lowest three dropped), and labs 2-10 (lowest one dropped). Your overall score so far is available on Blackboard. There will be no further updates to the overall score so far.

*Overall score so far*:
The average overall score so far, after quiz 11, is 867./1000 = 86.7%;
the high score was 1000/1000 = 100.0%;
741 overall scores are shown.
