The second in-class exam is scheduled for Monday, November 8. This will be a 50 minute exam. You may not use any notes, books, or calculators during the exams. To prevent distraction and any appearance of cheating, all cell phones and similar electronic devices must be put away during exams. No make-up exams will be given.
The exam covers the material up to and including HW6. That is, the material in Sections 3.1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 3.2, 3.3, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, and 3.4 of Beachy and Blair's textbook. More emphasis will be given to material covered since the first exam.
Some of you requested a list of topics that may be covered.
On the handouts page, I've posted a guideline
that you might find helpful while studying. It includes a list of many of the key notions we've defined, some central examples, and some
named theorems that we've used often.
You may want to review the following:
- All definitions from lecture and from the reading.
- Statements and proofs of theorems and propositions (as well as the ideas of their proofs) proved in lecture and the reading.
- All homework problems.
- The examples of groups we studied.
For additional preparation, you may want to look at problem from the relevant sections in the textbook that were not assigned as part of homework.
