Course Final Exam

Well, I hope you found that the Final Exam was structured as advertised! Please leave your comments here now that it's history.

The survey results about your feelings toward this blog were as follows:
  • "A Total Help" = 75%
  • "Who Totally Cares?" = 13.5%
  • " Total Waste of Time" = 11.5%

Some of your wrote comments & I'm grateful. There are also some intresting comments being added inposts below -- some good detail & neat ideas. (Tao & the Ice Hockey goalie in one ...)

Dear Led Zep Chick:

(Do you get why "Dyer Maker" is your song?)

I hope I can have a copy of the artwork....

i came to every lecture and tutorial, but i thought the exam was pretty hard. some of the definitions were crazy hard, some that i havent even seen in my life. but over all, the course wasnt too bad. there are some memorable moments... like the day you wore a dress to class... well i just want to wish everyone a safe and fun summer break... and for those who are taking a summer semester... you're crazy... :)

Just want to say, if you found the 4 levels in hey nos intresting, Watch the movie "flatliners" with Kevin Bacon, Keifer Suderland and Julia Roberts.

The movie is bassicly about the 4 states we talked about in class

Dear "anonymous":
Thank-you for that: I will watch the film to perhaps help me in lecture the next time I teach this course.

there is also a simpsons episode that was done that way. the one with Lisa making a robot that corrects people's grammer. might want to check that out too

I agree with anonymous #1. I went to every lecture and tutorial (and also paid attention while writing good notes) but i still found the exam to be more difficult than I thought that it would be. I also found that time was an issue.

Watch "Saved!"...

it's a movie very similar to Hey! in terms of themes...

it deals with close-mindness and cynicism and hypocrisy...

may not be as moving as Hey! but i think it's worth watching :)

your enthusiasm for the course was what made this course fun and interesting!

Dear Anonymous #2 -- I pitched it to be challenging but workable for dilgent students like you: that way, far less diligent people find it incomprehensible & can't get easy success for little work ;--)

Dear Anonymous #3:
Thank-you -- & likewise, I'm sure ;--)

try saying beer can without making it sound like a Jamaican saying bacon...haha.
thought the exam had tricky bits but so much choice that anyone who claims to have been to all the lectures should have known at least enough to get by! some of the definitions were unfamiliar to me...

My Jamaican friends will love that one ;--)

"D'yer Maker" = Jamaica!

What terms were unfamilar from the Final, by the bye?
