Exams

The date of Exam 1 is shifted to March 3. The exam will be based on Sections 1.1-1.5, 1.7-1.9, 2.1-2.3 (that is, everything that we cover in Chapters 1 and 2). The following checklist may be helpful: Exam1Checklist The questions in this checklist do not model the problems in the exam. However, I recommend that you check your understanding of concepts rather than doing more arithmetical practice.
