Study Hints for the Final Exam

Our final exam will be held in our usual classroom, on Tuesday, May 19, from 11 am until 1:30 pm.

The exam will consist of five problems, each worth 20 points. You will be asked to solve all five problems.

The following topics will be emphasized by the exam:

In preparing for the exam, you are urged to carefully review chapters 6 and 8 in your textbook. Doing extra problems from these chapters should be particularly helpful. If time allows, you might also find it helpful to also try some extra problems from chapters 3, 7, and 1l.

I do not particularly recommend that you study the mid-term exam when preparing for the final. However, you are of course free to review the mid-term solution guide, which can still be accessed by clicking here. Remember that the guide is in PDF format, and that you would therefore need Acrobat or similar software in order to read it.

Stony Brook University expects students to maintain standards of personal integrity that are in harmony with the educational goals of the institution; to observe national, state, and local laws as well as University regulations; and to respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people. Faculty must notify the Office of Judicial Affairs of any disruptive behavior that interferes with their ability to teach, compromises the safety of the learning environment, or inhibits students' ability to learn.

DSS advisory. If you have a physical, psychiatric, medical, or learning disability that may affect your ability to carry out the assigned course work, please contact the office of Disabled Student Services (DSS), Humanities Building, room 133, telephone 632-6748/TDD. DSS will review your concerns and determine what accommodations may be necessary and appropriate. All information regarding any disability will be treated as strictly confidential.
