**Final
Exam.**** **Your final exam

Calculators are ** not permitted** for the final exam.You are allowed to bring in 3 3x5 cards (both sides),
or one half-sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper (both sides) with formulas to the final.

I believe you will find that much of the material from Chapter 11 has now become very familiar to you. I recommend that you do not spend too much time reviewing that material. The studying priorities I recommend are: 1. Chapter 13, 2. Chapter 14, 3. Chapter 12, 4. Chapter 11 in that order. All of the old midterm exams and quizzes are linked below to help you study. The link to the course homepage I made when I taught the course in Fall 2009 is still active and can be accessed from http://math.gmu.edu/coursehomepages.htm.

Here are links to old final exams from when I taught this
course before: Fall 2009, Spring 06, Spring 04 (and solutions to Spring 04). I have been known to
recycle problems.

the final exam. The scan of the review
session is here.

**Picking
up Quiz 13.** Quiz 13 has been graded and you can pick up your quiz
outside George’s office anytime starting Friday. I was a little generous for
this quiz and gave a 6 for a perfect paper, and a 5 for a paper that was pretty
close to perfect. These scores will go into the books as being counted out of 5
points.

**Final
Exam Schedule.** There is some confusion about when the Final will
take place. The correct time is Thursday, May 10, 10:30am-1:15pm. This is

have the correct exam time. I greatly apologize for the confusion.
