3210 Foundations of Analysis I - Summer 2006


Midterm # 2 Guidelines


Date: Tuesday, July 18, 2006

Time: 8:45a.m.-10:00a.m. 

Room: LCB 219

Textbook Coverage: Sections 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 of Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 (ALL), textbook

Format:  4  problems

Midterm # 2 will test your knowledge (and ability to use in your own proofs) of concepts covered in Sections 2.3, 2.4, and 2.5 of Chapter 2 and in Chapter 3 of the textbook. The best preparation for the midterm would consist of a comprehensive review of all relevant definitions, theorems, remarks and examples covered in the textbook and lecture, as well as working through all suggested homework problems (from Homework Assignments # 3 and # 4).  The review for Midterm # 2 is scheduled for Friday, July 14, 2006. I strongly encourage you to attend. This test will have an OPEN TEXTBOOK AND NOTES policy, which means that you will be allowed to consult the textbook/notes while you are taking the test.

Notes:

1) I encourage you to seek help with the theoretical results and the exercises from the relevant homework assignments that you do not completely  understand . Feel free to ask me any questions you might have during  lecture, my office hours, or review. 

2) You are expected to recognize and be able to state and use all the definitions and the theoretical results that we discussed in lecture corresponding to the sections from the textbook  covered on the Midterm # 2 (as announced above).

3) As a general rule, in order to receive full credit for your solutions you need  to present a logically coherent justification of the facts that you claim as true. Make sure that you clearly indicate which theoretical results from the textbook or lecture you have used in your solutions to the midterm problems.
