FINAL EXAM: Our final exam is Sunday, August 29th, from 3:00 to 6:00 in Kemeny 006.  The final is cumulative, but will concentrate on the final third of the course.


SECOND MIDTERM RESULTS: As a whole the class did well on a very difficult exam.  I am still seeing some write ups which are way too messy and terse.  At this point in your careers, that is simply immature.  I will take off more points for poorly articulated work in the future.  

SECOND MIDTERM:
The second midterm will be held in 111 Wilder from 4pm to 6pm on Wednesday, August 4th.  (This is the same room where the first midterm was held and NOT our regular classroom.)  Students with legitimate conflicts, and who have obtained pre-approval from their instructor in writing, can take the make-up from 6:30-8:30.  The exam will cover everything we have done on groups (that means through Friday's lecture on July 30th and through and including Chapter 11 in the text).  The format of the second exam will be similar to the first.  Expect to be asked to state definitions and perhaps important theorems such as The Fundamental Theorem for Finite Abelian Groups, Cauchy's Theorem for Abelain Groups, etc.

FIRST EXAQM RESULTS: By and large, the class did well for a first midterm.  Everyone has to work on their exposition.  We are way past the point where unjustified assertions suffice.  It is especially unacceptable if I can't follow your work.  There will be more information shortly concerning grades and the like, but for now, I have posted crude solutions.

MINOR MIDTERM
:  Our first midterm in Wednesday, July 21 from 4-6 in 111 Wilder.  (NOT in our usual room!)  Students with legitimate conflicts, and who have obtained pre-approval from their instructor in writing, can take the make-up from 6:30-8:30 in 006 Kemeny.  The exam will cover through and including Friday's lecture (on July 16th).  (That means through and including Corollary 4 of Lagrange's Theorem.)  You should expect problems similar to those on homework.  You should also expect to be asked to state some definitions and to be familiar with the results proved in class.
