You were the best class that I have had, either here or in Hawaii. A record large fraction of you got As. There are far more As and Bs than the University expects when it says that B means "above average". The highest final grade was 94.7 %, and 15 people got more than 90 %. Maybe the most important thing that you can learn from this course is the importance of enthusiasm and hard work. You clearly worked hard, and you should be proud of your results. I am proud of you, and I wish you well in everything that you do.
Final grades were submitted on Friday, May 5, 2006.
