This is also where you will pick up your marked tests.

Central Course Page  contains the syllabus, policies,
practice problems, textbook information, webwork link, etc.  
Tests:  There will be four in-class tests, each approximately
20 minutes in duration.

The following applies to all tests in Math 220:
No aids of any kind: no calculators, no notes, no books.
No cell phones, no ipods, no electronic devices of any kind.

If you miss one of the tests for medical reasons, you need to
promptly inform the instructor, and provide a physician's note
specifically stating that you were medically unfit to write the missed
exam on that day. No make-up exams will be given. Your grade
will be based on the other course components.
Test 1  Friday, Sep. 21:  3-D geometry

Material: All Material covered in class up to and inluding Friday, September 14. In the textbook CLP3 this corresponds to sections 1.1, 1.2 (skip the optional ones), 1.7, 1.8, 1.9. In particular, know the distance formula between two points, understand the technique of sketching a surface by identifying its 'traces' with constant coordinate planes. Know the basics of vector arithmetic. Know the dot product, the angle formula, and projections. Know the cross product, its geometric meaning and the corresponding formulas for the area of parallelograms and volume of parallelepipeds.

Review in-class examples, webwork problems from the first two assignments, as well as suggested problems listed on the central course page.

Note. You must at least know how to sketch the following in the xy-plane: parabolas, ellipses, hyperbolas, and graphs of sine, cosine, exponential and logarithm. Do not memorize names of various 'quadtric surfaces' or other families of surfaces in 3D.
