Subject: Math 20A Final Exam Information
Date: March 14, 2016 at 3:39:41 PM PDT

Dear Math 20A Students,

The final exam for Math 20A is Wednesday (Mar 16) from 3:00 - 6:00 pm in SOLIS 104.

Information about the final exam, including exam topics, can be found on the course website:

All students will take the exam in SOLIS 104 (which is our usual lecture hall). Seat assignments for 
the exam are posted in the TritonEd Grade Center. 

You must bring your Student ID (it will be checked *during* the exam!) and at least one Blue Book. 
(You should probably bring two, just in case.) You may bring one sheet of notes (both sides are okay), 
but they must be handwritten (no photocopies).

Subject: MATH 20A - Bowers [WI16]: Math 20A Exam 2 Information
Date: February 21, 2016 9:28:03 PM PST

Dear Students,

Information for Exam 2 can be found on the class website:

In particular, notice that the list of topics no longer includes Section 4.4. Since we were unable to 
finish that section on Friday (because of the poor state of the chalkboard), we will finish it this 
week, and consequently I removed it from the exam.

Also, your seat assignment is posted in the TED grade center.  Be sure you know your seat assignment 
(and section number) BEFORE you arrive at the exam on Friday.

Subject: MATH 20A - Bowers [WI16]: Midterm Exam 1
Date: January 26, 2016 at 11:02:36 AM PST
To: "MATH 20A - Bowers [WI16]":;

Dear Math 20A Lecture B Students,

The first Math 20A midterm exam is Friday (in class).  For information about the exam, such as 
exam locations, which topics will be covered, what you can and cannot bring to the exam, and past 
midterm exams, see the class webpage:

Please note that you MUST BRING A BLUE BOOK in which to write your exam. Blue Books are sold in 
the UCSD bookstore, as well as various other places around campus.

You may see the first page of Exam 1 here:

The first page contains the instructions for the exam.  Note that #8 says "Do not use l'Hospital's 
Rule anywhere on this exam."

Also, be sure to read QUESTION ZERO, which is worth one point.

Your seat assignments are posted in the TEd Grade Center.  "SOL-104" means you will be taking the 
exam in Solis Hall 104. Seat assignments for Solis 104 are given in the form A-12, which means your 
seat is number 12 in row A. "SOL-110" means you will be taking the exam in Solis Hall 110. Solis 110 
does not have numbered seats, so your seat assignment is listed as N/A if you are in Solis 110.
