Math 550:391 Sample Exam Name: In-Class Part Print your name neatly. If you forget to write your name, or write so sloppy that I can’t read it, you can lose all possible points on this exam! Answer all the questions that you can. Circle your answer. WARNING: This is a closed-book, closed-note, no-calcutator exam. Exam format: The exam has been divided into two equally weighted parts: Part 1 is elementary concepts problems. Part 2 is intermediate level calculation-based problems. Part 1 consists of 16 elementary level problems that test your understanding of the basic concepts. Each problem is worth 1 point. There will be no partial credit on any of these elementary problems. NO EXCEPTIONS! Do any 15 of the 16 problems. You may do all 16, but I will stop grading after you get the first 15 correct. In other words, you cannot earn more than 100% on this exam. Part 2 consists of two calculation-based questions with multiple parts. The value of each part is displayed next to the problem number. You must show your work. You will not receive credit for lucky guesses. Show your work as clearly as you can: if I can’t understand how you got an answer, I will not give you credit for it. Grading Scheme for 3 point problems Each problem will be graded according to the following scheme: Minor algebra/calculus mistake with a correct approach: 2 out of 3 points given Major algebra/calculus mistake with a correct approach: 1 out of 3 points given Wrong approach: 0 points given The differences between major and minor mistakes will be determined by the instructor, not the student! This algorithm will be strictly enforced. No exceptions! DO NOT WRITE ON THIS PAGE IN THE SPACE BELOW 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17a 17b 18a 18b 18c

    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.
