I hope everyone had a great break! I have posted a practice exam, please review it when you can. The practice is ungraded, but working through it and getting help for any questions that you are stuck on should improve your experience with the final!
Remember, there are extra help sessions this week, so come by if you aren't sure how to approach any of the practice problems, or have questions about other lab work. All help sessions will be in Perkins 209, with overflow space in 208.

I hope your break has been relaxing so far. I apologize for not having a practice exam complete earlier this week like I had planned. I am still working on some final pieces of the practice and hope to have it posted over the weekend. In the mean time, consider reviewing past examples, practice problems, and quizzes to prepare. The exam will be made up of similar activities and problems to those found in Labs 5-12.
Thank you for your patience!
Please take a few minutes to complete the University's course evaluation for EF 105. These evaluations provide us valuable insights and we appreciate your feedback. Note that in the evaluations, "the instructor" is the course coordinator, Dr. Maczka, and not your TA. Although Dr. Maczka wishes he could attend every section every day and interact with you more, due to the structure of EF you have had limited contact with him.
There will also be an additional feedback form internal to EF 105 that will be posted soon to provide more detailed feedback about the course overall, and your TA.
As discussed in your last lab, there are no more official class meetings of EF 105 this semester. This week, there are no additional help sessions, but I will be available for questions and office hour visits Tuesday, November 26. I plan to have a practice exam ready by the end of that day as well.
The following week we hold our regular Monday and Wednesday help sessions from 4-6pm in Perkins 209. There will also be additional help sessions in Perkins 209 on Tuesday and Thursday, December 3 and 5 from 9am to 5pm. I hope you all can make use of these resources, as well as the discussion board and office hours, to prepare for the final.
Have a great Thanksgiving break!
I hope everyone is enjoying Fall Break! As we continue with MATLAB in the remaining weeks of the semester, each lab will have accompanied "pre-lab" material that you will be expected to engage with before coming to lab. More time in class will be devoted to working through practice activities and interacting with one another and the TAs to develop a deeper understanding of the material.
I have posted pre-lab material for lab-8 here:
There is also a "pre-lab" link on the Labs page. The video content and text content is meant to overlap, choose whichever medium you find easier to work with. In either case, it will be very important that you not only read/watch, but also play in MATLAB along with the content. Type in the examples and see what happens for yourself, but also go beyond that and for each example try changing things up with different values, different operators, etc. Take note of what works, what doesn't and jot down any questions that come up so that you can discuss them in class.
Plan to spend about 10-15 minutes with each of the 4 sections in the Lab 8 pre-lab material, including time to pause the video or reading to play in MATLAB. If you discover that you need significantly more or less time than 10-15 minutes on each section, please let me know so I can adjust for next time!
Enjoy the rest of your break,
Welcome to the Fall 2019 site for EF 105.
Use the Labs link in the left side bar to find the weekly list of topics for this semester.
EF 105 will meet as scheduled the first week of classes. If you are in a Thursday section the first day of class is Thursday, August 21. If you are in a Tuesday section, the first day of class is Tuesday, August 27.
We look forward to learning with you this semester!
