Midterm is over !

After 5 days of waiting the midterm is over. It contain just some simple question from the homework and workout example. It’s not so hard, just have to spend some time to thinking. All credit goes to Dr. Agarwal and his stuff. Staff solutions will be available next week , it’s been said that all of your are encouraged to discuss the problems that you thought were particularly hard on the discussion forum. It is just halfway through the course. Study and be ready for the final grade.

Do follow the collaboration rule ….. It’s all about your satisfaction not the grade

It’s been seen that some of the students just post about help them with several midterm question in case the full midterm solution are posted in some facebook MITx group and other forums. Mind that its an open book exam having 24 hours, you can have help from the text book, related discussion, tutorial or the given lectures. Don’t copy others answer to your checkbox. It all about your understanding in the related topics adn  he exam is supposed to grade your understanding, not the understanding of some random collaborator. If you cannot get to grips with the material then you don’t get the marks… that’s how exams work!

The 6.002x completion certificate has been rendered utterly valueless on a CV because of illicit collaboration on all the graded stages, so the only point in doing the course is to learn something and for our own satisfaction.

It does not matter that those who get the same certificate as you at the end of the course, it’s what knowledge you gain and how you are able to apply it that counts.

So be honest with your satisfaction .

Midterm sample problem and exam pattern been posted ..

In order to clear out the confusion at last MITx posted the sample review problem and the exam pattern under course info section. Students have only 3 chance to check their answer either right or wrong. With a wrong answer in the third attempt you will be shocked !!

They says that the review problem contains only the sample problem, does not indicates the number of given question the exam or the others. what do you think to continue the same performance or better ??

Again Midterm contain 30% of total grade, HW is 30% and the finale have 40% so, got under 60% marks in midterm cause you to downgrade of your total grade to 60% (or fail !). You have only 24 hours to complete your exam.

So, be prepared  for the exam 🙂
