## Test Results

If you would like to discuss your answers to any test, please send an email and arrange a time to see me: I am unable to discuss your answers if you turn up unannounced.

If you think that you student number does not appear on the file then you need to come to my office with a two-dollar coin that you will give to me. If I find your student number on the file then I keep the two-dollar coin. If your student number is missing then I return the two-dollar coin.

Note: You do not need to pass each test to pass the course. Obviously it is desirable to do well on the test...

## Optional tutorials

The purpose of the optional tutorials is for you to ask me any questions that you have about the course. Sometimes I will write an optional tutorial sheet for the optional tutorial. I won't do this every week. When I do it you may find it useful to look at the questions on the sheet prior to the tutorial.
