TENTATIVE DATES FOR EXAMS
- EXAM #1
- EXAM #2
- EXAM #3 - a review for the final!
ALL EXAMS ARE TO BE REDONE AT HOME BY EACH STUDENT. THE REDONE EXAMS WILL BE COLLECTED THE FOLLOWING CLASS. ALL REDONE EXAMS SHOULD REPRESENT THE EFFORT OF THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT. REDONE EXAMS WILL BE REGARDED AS THE TAKEHOME PORTION OF THE IN CLASS EXAM. PLEASE TAKE THE REDOING SERIOUSLY.
RESOURCES PERMITTED DURING EXAMS
All exams are closed books and closed notes.
- ONE SHEET. You are permitted one (1) 8.5" x 11" x 0" sheet on each
exam...just one.
You may write as small as your eyes will allow you to write.
- CALCULATORS. You will also be permitted to use calculators or handheld
supercomputers on each exam. I strongly recommend that everyone have a good
programmable calculator that they know how to use! In this class, you need
to be able to find the roots of any polynomial!
EXAM POLICY: All students must take all exams! ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUPS!

FUNDAMENTAL MATERIAL FROM TEXT
The following are examples, problems, figures, and reading material from
the text which you must master by the end of the semester. Please start as
soon as possible.
The following list will be updated as the semester progresses.
Return to Table of Contents.
MAIN REFERENCE AND SOURCE OF LEARNING
Problems from previous in class exams, takehome exams, and final exams.
You will have solutions to most of these.
I will assign homework problems from these.
Please do not just copy my solutions.
Please attempt to understand the main points in the solutions.
My solutions, as you will see, are long.
They are long because I attempt to make them very complete and self-contained.
Most of your learning should come from working out these exam problems.

LOGISTICS: GETTING COURSE MATERIAL
Material will be periodically placed at the Noble Library Copy Center.
Please call the Noble Library before making a special trip to pick up
course material.
The Noble Library Copy Center Phone Number is 965-7497.
Material which is copyrighted will be left at the
Noble Library reserve desk for you to xerox yourselves.
Efforts are being made to make all material available over the web and on CD ROM.
