Monday, May 16, in class.
Duration: 50 minutes.
Sections covered: Sections 14.4-14.5, 13.6, and 15.1-15.5. (Up to and including material from 5/11.)
No aids (in particular, no books, notes, or calculators) will be allowed on the exam.
Approximate number of problems: 4-5.
The problems on the exam will not deviate too much from the types of problems assigned on your homework. Therefore, it is important that you spend enough time making sure you are comfortable with the assigned problems and problems similar to them.
If you are looking for extra problems to
do (but only after you've mastered the homework
problems), try the Review Exercises at the end of
Chapters 14 and 15.
Grading: The exam is graded on a curve
and roughly the top 25% will receive (some sort of) A
and the next 30% will receive (some sort of) B.
Regrade policy: Apart from scores being
added up incorrectly, if you believe some problems were
graded in error, you must submit a written regrade
request by the following Wednesday. Your entire
exam will be regraded and it is
possible for you to lose points. Please also
be advised that some random exams will be scanned before
they are returned.
