PH253: Final grades

I have graded the finals (twice, actually, to be sure) and put the results up on Moodle. Your letter grades are also up on myBama.

Your final exam scores and overall average now show up there; I will post the letter grades on myBama shortly. There are still some days to make changes if you notice errors, and feel free to email me with any questions.

PH253: grade update

HW9 & 10 grades are up on moodle now, as is the extra credit for the major field exam. For the major field exam, you get 2.5% times your listed score as extra credit added to your overall course grade. Your overall average includes this (as well as dropping the lowest homework). HW10 replaces your lowest non-dropped HW score, if it is sufficiently good.

For the final, since many of you are about to ask for last-minute suggestions:

I think at this point, just reading the exam & homework solutions is the best thing to do. Some of the final questions will be very, very similar to those on HW sets and the two exams. There won't be any surprises.

There will also be 1 or 2 very much like the practice problems, if you haven't been over them yet.

There won't really be anything on molecules, lasers, or periodic solids.
