MIDTERM EXAMS
- Midterm #1
- Friday, Feb 11
(during class time)
- Your formula
sheet
- Old Midterm 1's for practice (with solutions):
- Midterm #2
- Friday, March 18
(during class time)
- Your formula
sheet
- Material: Fourier series solution of heat conduction
problems (10.3-10.6 in [BoyceDiPrima], plus the additional material
covered in class, including HW 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, but NOT including
spreadsheet/numerical method questions)
- Warning:
The following review/practice problems will be helpful ONLY IF you
first try them yourself WITHOUT looking at the solutions.
- Review problems (heat
conduction) (except problem 5) and solution
- Practise midterm: Math 257 (2009) and
solution
- Practise midterm: Math
316 (2009) and solution
- Practice midterm (except problem 4): Math 316 (2010) and solution
- Old Midterm 2's (the content may not match our midterm):
Exams:
two midterms and one final
- The midterms
will be held during class
hours on February 11 (Friday)
and March 18 (Friday).
- No make-up midterms!
- Missing a midterm normally results in a
mark of 0. Exceptions may be granted ONLY with
prior consent of the instructor, and with ofﬁcial documentation
supporting the student’s reason for
missing the exam. In case of a medical emergency, the instructor must
be notiﬁed within 48 hours
of the missed test, and presented with a doctor’s note immediately upon
the students return to UBC.
A physician’s note should speciﬁcally state that the student was
medically unﬁt to write the missed
exam on that speciﬁc day.
- The date
of the ﬁnal exam is yet to be declared. Do not make any travel plans
until the exam schedule
has been announced.
- IT IS
ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT that students know that IF THEY DO NOT FULFILL THE COURSE
REQUIREMENTS DURING THE TERM (including not writing the midterm
test(s) even if you agree to transfer the weight to the final) AND THEN MISS THE FINAL EXAMINATION, THEY
MAY BE DEEMED INELIGIBLE FOR A DEFERRED FINAL.
- Students
will be required to bring Photo
ID
to
all
tests
and exams.
- Calculators,
books, or aids of any kind will NOT be allowed in midterms or in the
ﬁnal.
- Complaint of
the mark on the midterm exams should be made right at the time you get the
exam back. Later claims will NOT
be considered.
Marking policy (especially
for the exams):
For computational problems, to earn lots of credit, you have to
get the right answer with proper set-up of the calculation.
In many cases (especially for the easier problems), about half
the points will be given for setting up the calculation properly and about half for
computing the numerical answer correctly.
For more difficult problems, more percentage will be given for properly
setting-up the calculation. You
may loose most (sometimes, all) of points for setting up the calculation incorrectly,
even if the subsequent computations are correct. Also, you may
loose half the points for not finding the correct final answer, even if
the initial set-up is correct.
