1 Midterm II Sample Questions Midterm II will be on Monday, November 10 th . Please arrive at least a few minutes early; the test will begin promptly at 10:10AM. In the past students usually require the entire time allowed to take my tests. The test is closed book, closed note and no calculators are allowed. I recommend you review lecture notes (from October 8 th through November 5 th ), recitation notes, the relevant textbook chapters (6-8 and 13-14), online handouts and Homeworks III and IV. There will be time during recitation on Friday, November 7 th for Midterm review; you should bring any questions you have to recitation. Also, I will be holding review sessions next week: Thursday, November 6 th , 6:30PM-7:30PM, Hanson Hall 1-104 Friday, November 7 th , 2:30PM-4:00PM, Hanson Hall 1-104 Saturday, November 8 th , Noon-1:00PM, Hanson Hall 1-104 For these review sessions I do not prepare anything, I just come to answer any questions you may have. So come with questions. Immediately below is a Midterm II that I wrote for Spring 2008. Below that is a Midterm II that I wrote for Spring 2007. Below that is a Midterm II that I wrote for Spring 2006. The below problems should only be taken as examples of possible questions, of course I can ask questions not listed here. The format of the test will be short answer questions (about 6 to 9 questions). The format will be similar to the format of the midterms below. I will not be posting solutions to the midterms below. If you have questions about the correct answers for the questions below you can ask during: recitation next week, your TA’s and my office hours and the review sessions I will be having next week.
