** Solutions:** The TA's have written up solutions which you can
find on http://www.math.ucsd.edu/~emamou/

**FINAL:** time: Tuesday, March 19, 11:30-2:30. ** The final is not
in our usual class room!**

The same rules apply for the final as for the midterm: One hand-written cheat sheet is allowed, no calculators or other notes. The material will go over the whole course, but with a clear emphasis on what has been done after the midterm. For those who want to get started with their preparation, I have posted a practice exam below (for problem 7: think of L as a 3x3 matrix, and the vectors to be column vectors). Additional problems about quadratic forms:students in sections B01 and B05: Warren Lecture Hall 2111

students in other sections: Warren Lecture Hall 2005

**Office hours for exam week:** Sunday 6-8pm (Ed Mamou, APM6349A),
Monday 2-4 at my office (APM 5256), Monday 3:30-5 (Tom Fleming, APM2202).

**MIDTERM:**
The material for the midterm will go until the last
homework assignment, due this Thursday. The problems will be similar to
homework problems. You are allowed to use one hand-written cheat sheet,
but no caculators, books or other notes. You can practice for the
midterm by doing other, similar homework problems, or do the problems
of the midterm I gave last spring below (clicking on it should give
you the problems, if your computer can deal with ps-files, or try
the pdf-file). Of course, posting my previous midterm does not guarantee
that the midterm this year will be the same or very similar.
