Second In-Class Exam
modified 19-Oct-2017 at 7:46PM by James Kakalios

Good news, everyone!

Our second in-class exam will be this Friday, October 27 at the normal lecture time (11:15 AM - 12:05 PM). The exam will be closed book, no external notes or books. This exam will cover the material in Tipler and Mosca Chapters 1 - 8, with emphasis on the material in Chapters 5 - 8. You should bring a number 2 pencil to fill in the bubble sheets for the Multiple Choice questions, and a simple calculator (non-graphing, non-programmable).

An equation sheet will be provided. This sheet is attached below, so that you can familiarize yourself with the material. You do not need to bring a copy of this sheet to the exam, it will be attached to the exam itself.

Due to the size of the class, we will have to use two classrooms for alternate seating for the exam. If your last name begins with:

the initial A - L, you will take your exam in Fraser Hall, Room 101

the initial M - Z, you will take your exam in Tate B20.

Good luck. Now Get Back to Work!
