You will turn in your cheat sheet(s) with your completed exam, and rules will be enforced. If you have questions about what can and cannot be included, please ask me. - [2009-09-03] TA office hours Friday 2-3pm in Snedecor 3219; Instructor office hours Friday 9-10 in Snedecor 2411 (this is a change from original announcement).
