This will be an in-class, closed-book, individual assignment. It will focus on the lecture and web handouts. There will be some questions drawn from the textbook, but only on topics that were touched on in class or on the web.
Ender's Game will be covered, but only up to Chapter 12, and it will not be emphasized.
Handouts listed on the web but not explicitly covered in class will definitely be covered.
The format of the exam will be most multiple choice, with some short-answer questions and a few fill-in-the-blanks.
