Segment of Exam #1.
The second section of
the exam is essay. You may chose any two questions below and
answer them. The answers must be sent to me as an e-mail
attachment. I MUST receive the e-mail by 11:00 PM on the date
it which it is due. As soon as I receive your e-mail with the
essays, I will reply and let you know I've received it. If you
haven't received an e-mail reply, that probably means I didn't
receive the message. Please don't wait until the last minute to
take the exam; try to leave yourself time in case of some sort
of a problem.
A handful of students have experienced some technical problems
sending their essays. I would like to suggest that you send a
carbon copy (cc of your essays to yourself when you send them to me.
That way you will have a receipt with a time/date you sent your
essays and let you know if the transmission worked. I would
hold onto that "receipt" until you reply back from me letting you
know I received your essay with no problems.
