The first midterm exam covers the material we have discussed in Sections 1 through 23 in the course text. You should go over Homework Assignments #1 - 4, Quiz #1, Computer Lab #1, in-class handouts, and your class notes.
We will review for the exam on Tuesday, March 1 from 7:00 - 8:30 pm in Smith Labs 155.
Please come prepared with specific questions. Some sample practice problems
are available
here.
Solutions to the practice problems are available
here.
Other sample problems from the textbook are provided below.
Note: No calculators are allowed on the exam so be prepared to answer questions without your personal calculator.
The following topics, definitions and theorems are important material
for the exam. You may be asked to define some terms precisely as well
as state and/or prove important theorems. Keep in mind that many of the problems
in the text provide answers, either as part of the
question or listed after the problem. You will not have such an advantage on the
exam.
