Final exam (35%) [3]

[1] Send me an introductory email outlining a bit about yourself, why you are interested in GR, what grade you hope to achieve, 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 and I will not be judgey about it.

[2] 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.
