It is done! I have taken my calculus finial and what's written is written; it's said; it's done; that's it. I knew the exam was 15 problems, and with the alloted time knew I had about 8 minutes per problem. Despite flying through the first several problems, I still was running short of time by as I approached the end of the test. I finished every problem, but I wasn't able to go back and check my work. Overall, I felt pretty good about the test and my only complaint is the time constraint.
This evening, I checked and found grades were posted: 93.33% on the exam. That makes me very happy.
The professor allowed the use of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper for notes. All I can say is I love OpenOffice, 5-point font and my laser printer. Check this out
. Despite all the work I put into the page, I only looked at it a couple times--but those times were really useful.
After the test, I found I had no idea what I was going to do with the rest of the day. Being bright, sunny and fairly calm, a bike ride sounded great. Talon wants to start biking, so I figured we'd do a quick 10-mile run. We did my standard loop to Big Hills Park and I left him pretty winded. The ride lasted about 57 minutes, totaling 12.25 miles-- so we averaged close to 13 MPH. Winds were from the north-east and dogged us a bit on the way out. But on the way back, we had a nice tail wind. Always nice to get those at the end :)
