About the final exam
The final exam will be held on
Tuesday, December 11 from 10:30am to 12:30pm in 316 Burnham Hall.
The final exam will consist of a list of at least five questions, and for full credit you will be asked to complete any four of them. Two of the exam problems will posted on the web page seven days before the exam. You are encouraged to work on these questions in advance, but collaboration is prohibited.
No notes or books may be used during the final exam. No formula sheet nor list of axioms will be provided. Unless a question on the final exam specifies otherwise, the rules for writing proofs are the same as in the most recent homework assignment.
The final exam questions will be an approximately equal mix of older material (that covered by exams 1 and 2) and new material.
Homework
Unless otherwise specified, all problems are from the textbook.
Unless the book or the assignment instructs you otherwise, every
problem requires you to write a proof of your answer.
It is important to write legibly if you are hand-writing solutions!
Unless specifically instructed not to for a given question, you always need to write a proof.
