Exam 1
We will have our first midterm on Thursday, 5th of October during our regular lecture time in our regular lecture room. It is a closed book exam but you are allowed to use Maple and any worksheets you might have in your home directory. Here is a sample test. Please note that our exam is likely to be about 50-100% longer (due to more time available and the Honours nature of the course).
