# Math 442 Exams

####
Midterm, Tuesday 9th February 14.00-15.30,
Location WESB
201

The midterm will cover chapters 1, 2, part of 4. (Homeworks
1-5.) It is a closed-book
exam: no books, notes, or
calculators
may be
used. Bring your student id and, if you like, coloured pens/pencils.

The topics covered are: Konigsburg bridge problem,
Knight's tour, dice walks, sprouts, parse trees, alkanes, people at a
party, complement, isomorphic, subgraphs, matrix representations, types
of graphs, Eulerian graphs, Hamiltonian graphs and applications,
planarity, contractible, homeomorphic.

Extended office hours: Thursday February 4th **5-6.30pm**. I will also
be on email during regular work hours Monday February 8th (when UBC is
closed).

Practice questions: 1.4, 1.5, 1.20, 2.20, 2.33, 4.4 (justify your
answer). Answers are in the back of the book.

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.
