Answer all questions. The value of each question is given in parentheses by the
question. There are a total of 100 points possible. . All work must be shown for full credit. Put your final answers in the locations speciﬁed. . You may use six new singlesided 8'1/ " x 11" information sheets that youhave prepared. You may also use the six singlesided information sheets that you
prepared for the ﬁrst examination as well as the six single—sided information sheets
that you prepared for the second examination. Some physical constants are given below. You may use one "book of math tables" or calculus textbook. . You may use a "pocket calculator" that can be put in a normalsize pocket and requires no external electrical power. Graphing calculators and programmable
calculators are acceptable. You may not use portable, handheld, laptop, or
notebook computers or wireless, infrared, or network connections”. . You may not use any reference materials other than those listed above. Therefore, you may not use the class notes, any textbooks, homework problems, reprints of papers, journals, prayer books, etc. '
There is to be no sharing of anything. If excess information is given in a question, ignore the unneeded information. If too little information is given in a question, assume the information needed and
clearly note this with your work. Any changes to the examination will be written on the board. Check the board
periodically during the examination. Any acts of dishonesty will be referred to the Dean of Students without prior
discussion. The ofﬁcial written Institute procedures on academic honesty (entitled "Maintaining Academic Honesty" and available from the Dean of Students Ofﬁce)
will be followed in all_cases.
