  • Old exams: Final August 2016 , Final January 2016 , Solutions August 2016 , Solutions January 2016
  • NB! Please be adviced that when I grade the projects I will search online and in URKUND to make sure you are handing in original work. That does not mean just the writing (URKUND) but that the analysis is a clear original piece of work (which I can check by searching for analysis of data sets with key terms). Trying to pass off work that is not your own constitutes cheating.... and consequences may be dire.
  • Mini 5: On Dec 16th you will present a short preliminary analysis of your project data. Prepare 4-6 slides and PRINT THEM. Bring to class and we will have a postersession where we go around and look at eachothers project and discuss. This is a great way to get feedback from me and your peers and perhaps get some inspiration.
  • Next week! Last week of class already! On Tue we will wrap up regularized regression. Thursday is a review lecture and Friday we go through old exams and the project presentations. I have booked the FB room on Friday for an extra 90 minutes for the presentations.
  • Old exams to be discussed on Friday: 2011 exam , Exam 2012 , Solutions 2012 , Solutions 2011 . Don't look at the solutions before you have given some thought to the exam questions!
  • NEW CLASSROOM: we will be in Euler on Tuesdays and FB on Fridays.

    Old Exams

    I will post old exams here and we will spend the last week of classes going through them.
    Examination procedures
    In Chalmers Student Portal you can read about when exams are given and what rules apply on exams at Chalmers.
    At the link Scedule you can find when exams are given for courses at University of Gothenburg.
    At the exam, you should be able to show valid identification.
    Before the exam, it is important that you report that you want to take the examination. If you study at Chalmers, you will do this by the Chalmers Student Portal, and if you study at University of Gothenburg, so sign up via GU's Student Portal.

    You can see your results in Ladok by logging on to the Student portal.

    At the annual examination:
    When it is practical a separate review is arranged. The date of the review will be announced here on the course website. Anyone who can not participate in the review may thereafter retrieve and review their exam on Mathematical sciences study expedition, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 to 13:00. Check that you have the right grades and score. Any complaints about the marking must be submitted in writing at the office, where there is a form to fill out.

    At re-examination:
    Exams are reviewed and picked up at the Mathematical sciences study expedition, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 to 13:00. Any complaints about the marking must be submitted in writing at the office, where there is a form to fill out.
