Exam 1: Thursday September 27, in our section room JFB 103, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. We start the exam 5 minutes before regular class time, and end it 5 minutes after regular class time, so that you have one hour to work on the exam.
We'll review the content from Chapters 1-3 Wednesday in class, using these exam1review.pdf  notes. I'll go over last spring's exam on Tuesday from 5:00-6:30 p.m., in JFB 102. That exam is linked below, along with its solutions. Even though the warning below applies, my old exams give you an idea of how I structure exams, and how I try to address a selection of the course concepts.
Warning: exam topics and concepts are not restricted to the particular ones which appear on this practice test!

Here is a (partially) filled-in version from the end of class: exam2reviewfilledin.pdf I'll go over last spring's exam on Tuesday from 4:30-6:00 p.m., in our regular classroom WEB L104. That exam is linked below, along with its solutions.

Final exam: Monday December 10, 8:00 a.m.- 10:00 a.m. You will be able to work until 10:15, if you wish. We will use our regular classroom WEB L104.
Review sessions: We reviewed the course material on the last day of classes, using these Math2250review.pdf notes.
I will review last spring's final exam material on Saturday December 8 from 3-5 p.m., in our classroom WEB L104. That exam and its solutions are posted below. Remember the usual caveats: Review concepts/topics first, to check and integrate your understanding of the course material. Class notes and the text are useful at this stage. Then look for representative problems to test your understanding of concepts, techniques, and applications. At this point old quizzes and homework problems as well as old exams are good source material. Remember that no exam can cover all topics, so do not expect topic coverage on previous exams to necessarily coincide with this spring's version of the final exam.
