/ The Third Exam / The Fourth Exam / The Final Exam /

Note:  Previously given exams are available below in Postscript format, that can be printed with a Postscript printer.  The files can also be viewed and printed with Ghostscript and GSview.  I have also made the exams available in Adobe Acrobat format.

The Third Exam:

The exam will be on Tuesday, March 27.  Following Prof. Guillory's original announcement, the exam will cover material from sections 13.3 through 14.3 of the text.  Also, following Prof. Guillory's original announcement, the exam will consist of problems from the syllabus.

The Fourth Exam:
The exam will be on Friday, April 20, and will consist of four problems dealing with multiple integration (Chapter 15 of the text).  One of the problems will be exactly a problem from the syllabus, while the other three problems will be similar to problems on the syllabus. Consistent with Prof. Guillory's policy, the exam will be closed-book, but you will be allowed a 3 inch by 5 inch note card.

The Final Exam:
The exam will be on Wednesday, May 2, 2001 between 1:30 and 4:00 PM.  It will be closed-book, but you may bring a 3 inch by 5 inch note card with you to class.  The problems will be similar to problems on the syllabus or problems I have given on exams in this sections or in sections I have taught in previous semesters.  You may wish to pay particular attention to the following items:

• Given the graph of a function of two variables, identify a formula corresponding to the graph.
• Write down parametric equations for a plane through three specified points.
• Write down a single equation (relating x, y, and z) for a plane through three specified points.
• Use the multivariate chain rule to find the derivative of a function with respect to a parameter.
• Know how to compute the distance travelled by an object whose position is given in parametric form.
• Know how to compute tangent plane approximations.
• Know how to approximate the range of a function with differentials (or tangent plane approximations).
• Compute the average value of a function of three variables over a specified region of three-dimensional space.
• Sketch a specified vector field over a specified region.
