Social and Information Networks, Spring 2021

Term Test

The midterm has been released. Go to Quercus, the Files tab, and check under the folder "Midterm (now released)".
You've all got an extra 30 minutes (I decided to release a bit early to give myself time in case of any technical problems).
Make sure to read all instructions carefully, and to contact me with questions or problems as soon as possible.
Good luck! :)

The term test is open-book and take-home. The PDF will be on Quercus, and you will submit your solutions via MarkUs (same as A1, but NO grace tokens!). An announcement will be made here and on Quercus once the PDF and .tex are posted. This should happen around 12:01AM Toronto time on March 12th. The midterm is due on March 14th at 11:50PM.
The midterm covers up to Week 6 inclusive. Since we are a little behind the official schedule, it's all the lectures + tutorials up to and including the lecture on March 1rst. In other words, up to and including this slide deck

Final Assessment

The final assessment is also open-book and take-home.
The exam has been scheduled by the department.
The exam completion window will be from 2021-04-14 at 9:00AM (Toronto time) until 2021-04-16 at 9:00AM (48 hours after the start time). The exam is intended to take you 3-5 hours so you should have plenty of time.
You can expect it to be similar to the midterm, however you will only have 48 hours rather than 62.
Further details TBA

To help you study, I've made some practice questions. We will be going over the solutions in-tutorial on April 8th. As these questions are purely for practice, feel free to discuss how to solve them on Discourse or with me in office hours.
