Exams
There will be three in-class exams, on the dates posted below. (Dates will also be announced in class.) The final exam is Monday, May 6 from 8:00 to 9:55 in a room to be announced.

  • Exam 1: Friday, September 27th in class. Topics TBA. Here is an an old exam, and another old exam you can use to study by. Warning: Problem 5 on the first practice exam is very messy computationally (my students wanted to kill me last semester for that problem). You should know how to do that kind of calculation, but it's unlikely you'd see anything that messy on the exam again.

  • Exam 2: Wednesday, October 30th in class. Topics TBA. Here is an an old exam, and another old exam you can use to study by. (Note: you can skip 3b on this second exam, I don't like that problem. Also, we may or may not get to the material covered in problem 4, I don't know yet.)

  • Exam 3: Wednesday, December 4th. Here is an old exam you can use to practice (ignore problem 4, we haven't covered that yet). And here is another old exam.

  • Final Exam: Monday, December 9th, 8AM - 955AM in a room TBD. Here is an old final exam you can use to study. Ignore problem 7(b), we didn't cover Lagrange multipliers this semester. Also, note that one problem from the last homework will be on the final.
