Exam 1 Study Guide

What to bring
Bring a non-graphing calculator and something to write with. A pen is fine but a pencil with eraser will be better. Notes are not allowed.

The exam will cover the lecture and readings through September 15th and the first three lab sessions. If you understand all three of these — lecture, readings, and labs — then you'll be in great shape.

Readings. Readings include all of Chapters 1-6.

Lectures. The outlines and full powerpoint files for all lectures are available below. Also listed are glossaries of terms you should know, and supplementary reading I've written that explains all the math we've encountered.
