# Math 442 Exams

####
Midterm, Tuesday 7th February 14.00-15.30,
Location TBA

The midterm will cover chapters . (Homeworks .) 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:

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.
