Final exam (35%) [3] |
[1] Send me a brief email outlining a bit about yourself, why you are interested in GR, and your future physics plans. The purpose of this is simply to help me do a better job of teaching you -- it will not be graded.
[2] The midterm date has been chosen to (a) not be the same week as the GRE [S28Oct] and (b) not conflict with sabbaths or with Diwali [R19Oct].
[3] Final exam period is 09-20Dec. Details of our final exam cannnot be posted here because doing so is expressly forbidden by UofT regulations. Please refer directly to the Arts & Science exam timetable.
