Sample exams illustrate what an exam might be like, in terms of the number of problems and the level of difficulty. But the problems on the actual exam might be quite different in type.

exam | date | solutions | results | topic | sample exam |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

exam 1 | 2/11 | Exam 1 sol'n | exam1 results | first-order eqns | Sample exam, Sample exam sol'n |

exam 2 | 3/06 | Exam 2 sol'n | exam2 results | second & higher-order eqns | Sample exam, Sample exam answers, Sample exam sol'n |

exam 3 | 4/10 | Exam 3 sol'n | exam3 results | Laplace transforms | Sample exam, Sample exam sol'n |

final | 5/16 8-10am | everything | Sample final exam, Sample final answers |
