Final Exam instructions:As usual, the test will be closed book, however you will be allowed a single standard 3x5 inch handwritten note card. If your notecard is the wrong dimensions, or typed, or anything other than a single 3x5 inch handwritten card of notes, I will deduct points from your final. Announcements Office hours on 12/14 will be held from 1:302:30 PM.
The final exam for the course will be cumulative over all of the material in the course, however there will be an emphasis on material since the last exam. In the course files below, I've posted solutions to selected problems from the coordinates lab (done in Maple). There is an erroneous mention of BlackBoard on the syllabus, which we will not be using this semester. A revised copy of the syllabus reflecting this change is available. The third exam, after some delays due to weather, was held on November 29th and covered sections 4.37, 5.1, 5.2. The second exam was on October 29th. It covered sections 2.2, 2.3, 2.8, 2.9, 3.13, 4.12. The first exam was on October 1st. It covered sections 1.11.5, 1.79 and 2.1.
Homework Instructions Homework is due by 4:30 PM on the date assigned. No late homework will be accepted except by prior arrangement. You may submit your homework in class or in my box in the Math and Statistics Department office. Formatting Instructions All homework must be submitted in ink (and you should be sure to leave adequate space for grading comments). Revised 9/13.
 Your name, class section and due date should appear in the top right hand corner of the first page.
 Your assignment must be stapled together (not paperclipped, not crimped). Staple all assignments due on the same date together.
 If your paper came from a spiral bound notebook, you must remove all the pokey out bits (the edges of the page should be straight and clean).
Failure to follow these instructions will result in deductions from your grade.
