Midterm: Solution and Stats

We are in the midst of returning the midterm scripts to all.  Please check and make sure everything is marked properly and you understand your mistakes.  Please check that your midterm mark in IVLE Gradebook is consistent with what you get on your hardcopy.

Here is the solution to the midterm.

The figure below shows the histogram for your marks.  The average is 49.6; stddev is 15.9; and median is 51.  I am quite happy that the general results are better than last year’s midterm (despite many of you commented that this year’s midterm is harder).  For those who do well, keep it up!  For those who did not do as well as expected, I hope you learn from this test and do better in the final.
