In the afternoon, students will take their 200-point comprehensive course final. Students are allowed to use their composition book notes, so make sure you not only bring your notes....but make sure they are complete!
Monday's Lecture Notes.
Here's a PDF file of the Lecture Guide based upon the notes.
The title, incidentally, is taken from the Daniel Dennett book which also inspired a two-hour episode of the NOVA 'Evolution' series. We saw part of this episode in class yesterday, and will see another chunk on Tuesday morning, but I think students will benefit from watching the whole thing this evening.
(For your convenience, I have embedded all 11 videos on this page, but these may not be visible on FUSD computers or on others that do not have recent versions of Java to run flash-based media. If you are unable to open the individual videos on this post, go to the link above and watch them directly on YouTube)
