NEW!! I'm done writing the sample midterm 1 and its solutions sheet; you can now download them at your leisure. Still to go: things to know - midterm 1 material (mostly limits; plug in, check cases: valid answer, 0/0, number/0; tricks for cancellations: multiply by conjugate, common denominator ... this kind of stuff); some solutions from the big list o' problems, again, midterm 1 stuff. Hopefully by Monday morning? hmmm my fingers are already aching, need rest :)
NEW!! I managed to finish writing the sample final's solutions, and they are now posted; click on the appropriate links. It took longer than I expected! sorry. Still to go: midterm 1 stuff ... probably by the end of today (Saturday).
NEW!! Deanna, your friendly Math TA, will be in the Tutor Room on Tuesday, from 3:30 til 4:30. Send her an email if you need contact her regarding other times. By the way, the Tutor Room is OPEN on Sunday in the afternoon, and also next week.

NEW!! I'm working on the solutions for the Sample Final, and the Sample Midterm 1, they should be done by tomorrow. I am re-posting the solutions for the 2nd and 3rd midterm samples, and all the other material that has relevance. Scroll down to get them. (If you need hardcopies of any of the materials - those handed in during lecture - there is a bunch of stuff next to my office's door, Math Tower 529). Good luck!
Please check all of them out here; if you get an error, that particular link might not exist yet, so please check it out a bit later (yet another hint: when you get to the appropriate links, it's better if you right-click and download first; then print it, or view it with the acrobat reader).
