Extended office hours:

Practice questions:

Some study hints:

- This is a Math Majors course, which means the exam will be
about 50% proofs 50% calculation. You will be expected to prove
results like on the homework, or in class.
- To study efficiently make sure you know the definitions, the
algorithms/methods for computing things, the formulas for
things, and results/proof methods we use most often. Perhaps
write them in your own words, or explain them to a friend.
- Do the lecture examples, practice questions and old homeworks
again without looking at the answers.
- Go through the posted homework solutions to gain another point
of view on solving the questions.
- In the exam: If
you get stuck on a problem in the exam then write down relevant
definitions accurately. This will help to inspire you and pick
up points for working. If you use a result from class say "From
the result in class..." then state the result so the grader
knows this isn't made up.
