Math 241 Section A: Midterm the first



Location depends on your discussion section.


Special tutoring, office hour, and class schedule Sept 24–28:


Problems will very be similar to those on the HW and discussion worksheets. Some will be straight computations, others will be conceptual short answer questions, and others multiple choice or true/false questions. Taken collectively, the HW should be viewed as constituting a study guide for this exam.

Recommended Review Problems:

Working additional problems from the text is the recommended way to prepare for the exam, as is doing the problems from the worksheets that you didn't get to in section. A key resource is the excellent list of review problems at the end of each chapter, including quick concept checks and a true/false quiz. For Chapter 12, all of them relevant. For Chapter 14, what we've covered is reviewed in:

Here are the solutions to the even-numbered review problems for Chapters 12 and Chapter 14. In addition, the "chapter practice" assignments in WebAssign have many, but not all, of the problems from the text. Solutions to any problem in WebAssign are available there for any assignment whose due date has past.

Practice Exams:

Here are the exams from the last two years, with solutions. Important Note: In section on Thursday, Sept 20, you will take the 2010 exam in timed conditions as practice, so you don't want to look at it before that (the practice exam won't be graded).

Conflict Exam:

If you have a conflict with the exam time, please consult the university policy on evening midterm exams. Based on that, if you think your situation qualifies you to take the conflict exam, please contact me as soon as possible. The conflict exam will be held Wednesday, Sept 26 from 7:45–8:45am in 314 Altgeld (note that's in the morning, not the evening). If you can't make either time (for instance, both times fall on the religious holiday Yom Kippur), please contact me to make special arrangements.

Up to main.
