The final exam is a Common Time Exam and consists of two parts:
- Common Exam
This test is a multiple choice exam taken by all sections of MATH 2204. Samples of Common Time Final Exams given in previous years are available (koofers).
- Free Response Exam
Your instructor will give you information on what to expect for the second portion of the exam.
- Both portions of this exam will be administered in person. The exam is NOT scheduled in your regular classroom. Rooms for the exam will be announced near the end of the semester.
- The final exam time is fixed and will not be rescheduled for discretionary reasons, including conflicts with work schedules or exams for classes at other colleges.
- If there is a conflict with the final in another class, follow the procedures proposed by your college to reschedule an exam. Exams of courses that have a common-time final have priority and the exam for the other course should be rescheduled.
