## Math 641-600 Midterm Review

The midterm will be given on Wednesday, Oct. 15 and will consist of an in-class part and a take-home part. It will cover sections 1.1-1.4, 2.1, 2.2.1, 2.2.2. It will also cover the material done in class and covered in my notes, starting with "Adjoints,..." and ending with Approximation of continuous functions." See Class notes on my web page.

The in-class part of the midterm will consist of the following: statements of theorems and definitions; short problems or propositions similar to homework problems or examples done in class; and either a critical part or sketch of a proof for one of the major theorems proved.

The take-home test will have longer computations, proofs, or problems. It is due on Tuesday, October 21, at 4 pm. You may bring the test to me directly (Blocker 611D) or put it in my mailbox on the second floor.
