The second midterm exam covers the material we have discussed in Sections 24 through 50 in the course text (excluding Sections 27, 28, 35, 36, 42, and 47). You should go over Homework Assignments #5 - 7, Computer Lab #2, the worksheet for Chapter 3, and your class notes.
We will review for the exam on Tuesday, April 19 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 these 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.
