Q SCI 190: Quantitative Analysis for Environmental Science --- Spring 2014

Examination Dates

Hourly Examinations

You must bring your Husky Card to all exams.

Closed book hourly exams are designed to be completed within 50-55 minutes and are scheduled every two weeks during the quarter. Points are deducted from an exam turned in after 55 minutes. Each exam usually covers up to two chapters of the text. You may bring a hand held scientific or graphing calculator, the algebra review card (see MyLab & Mastering Tools for Success tab) and the definitions, rules and formulas (see back of text or MyLab & Mastering eBook tab). You may write additional notes on the algebra review card and the definitions, rules and formula sheets. No other printed materials may be brought to the exams unless specifically approved in advance. You can not share any materials with anyone else during the exams.

When writing your exams, please follow all directions and CLEARLY mark your final answer -- preferably by drawing a box around it. This will help the grader follow your logic and assign the proper partial credit if appropriate. To receive full credit you must clearly show which formula you are using; plug in a few representative data points to demonstrate that you know how to use the formula; and provide the correct numerical answer. Providing only a calculator input stream will not earn full credit.

The hourly exams are scheduled for:

  • Hourly Exam One -- Friday, April 11

  • Hourly Exam Two -- Friday, April 25

  • Hourly Exam Three -- Friday, May 9

  • Hourly Exam Four -- Friday, May 23

  • Hourly Exam Five -- Friday, June 6

    Hourly Examinations may be taken at EITHER 2:30-3:20 or 3:30-4:20 pm in Raitt Hall, Room 121. We expect you to take the exam at this time and location unless you have made alternate arrangements with the instructor to take the exam at an off-campus location (such as a regional library) or at the UW DRS office in MGH 011 at least a week in advance of the exam. You may take the exam at either of the two times - no pre-notification is necessary.


    Final Examination

    A closed book comprehensive final exam (designed to be completed within 110 minutes), is given on Monday, June 9. It covers chapters 1-10 (excluding those chapters and sections that we skipped) of our text. Points are deducted from an exam turned in after 110 minutes. You may bring a hand held scientific or graphing calculator, the algebra review card (see MyLab & Mastering Tools for Success tab) and the definitions, rules and formulas (see back of text or MyLab & Mastering eBook tab). You may write additional notes on the algebra review card and the definitions, rules and formula sheets. No other printed materials may be brought to the final exam unless specifically approved in advance. You can not share any materials with anyone else during the final exam.

    The Final Exam may be taken at EITHER 10:30-12:20 OR 12:30-2:20 in Mary Gates Hall, Room 389. We expect you to take the exam at this time and location unless you have made alternate arrangements with the instructor to take the exam at an off-campus location (such as a regional library) or at the UW DRS office in MGH 011 at least a week in advance of the final exam. You may take the exam at either of the two times - no pre-notification is necessary.
