Review for Exam 1 Math 217, Fall 2002 General Thoughts 1. You will need to know the definitions and the theorems, but not because you will be asked to regurgitate them. For instance: (a) If you don’t know what it means to be inconsistent, you won’t be able to answer the question about that on the exam. (b) If you don’t know what it means to be linearly independent, or some of the facts that we proved about it, you will find that question to be very difficult. (c) Etc., Etc. You may bring one 3 × 5 note-card to use on the test. 2. Calculators will not be allowed on the test. Now remember that I can’t really add, so that means that there isn’t going to be anything too terrible to do by hand. 3. Expect about half the questions ask you to solve some problem (what is the solution to this system of equations, etc.), and half to ask you to show something is true (show that the sum of two vectors is in their span, etc.). 4. There are some things which are obviously going to be on the exam, so know how to do them! These are the big things: row reduction, linear transformations, Invertible Matrix Theorem, etc. Don’t be caught surprised about those.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
