First Hour Exam Information

The first Math 17 exam will be held Monday, October 26 from 4 - 6 pm in Room 105 Dartmouth Hall.

The exam covers all material from the beginning of the term through Assignment 12 (the class of Wednesday, October 21).

The exam is designed so that well-prepared students can complete the exam in one hour, however you will be given two hours for the exam which should eliminate time pressure for all students.

Please arrive shortly before 4 pm to allow time to get seated and settled. Do not sit next to anyone - leave an empty seat between you and other students.

Naturally, bring writing implements; pens or (sharpened) pencils are fine. Scrap paper will be attached to each exam; you may not use your own.

Calculators may be used for numerical work or graphing if you like, but under no circumstances are they to be used in any other way, e.g., to store information, run programs, symbolic manipulation. They are certainly not required, nor should they be of much use. Except in trivial cases or when requested, answers need not be simplified and more importantly, answers need to be exact. For example, someone saying the answer to a problem is 1.414213562 instead of the correct answer of sqrt(2) is wrong, and may lose credit.

There will be a Question and Answer session on Sunday, October 25 from 7 to 9 pm in 13 Carpenter. Attendance is optional.

For those students who cannot get to the exam on time because of a previous academic committment (eg, a laboratory), the exam will be given at 7:00 pm in Room 104 Bradley.

Sample questions will be available either on the Math 17 home page or else handed out in class.
