Your best two scores of the three mid-terms and the essay score will determine your grade. (Quiz scores will also count as if you had taken the normal final exam.) The essay topic must be relevant to the material covered in the class and it must be your original work. The essay is due by 5 PM on December 15 but you may submit it earlier. The topic must be approved in advance and no later than December 9. (Some possible topics are listed below but you may choose your own.) You may submit the essay by email to [email protected] or hand in a paper copy at my office Rm 2235 before 5 PM December 15.
