Exam 3 (Wed May 13, 19:00-22:00)
Sample Exam: Here is a sample exam, and here are its solutions. There may be a few more problems added to this sample exam before May 6, so if you download it before then, check back again on that day.
Date and Time: Exam 3 will be held Wednesday, May 13, from 7:00-10:00pm, on Compass. If you are currently in a time zone that makes it impractical to take a 7pm exam, please contact the instructor; a 7am section will also be available.
Coverage: about 1/3 of the exam will cover the first 2/3 of the course (lectures 1-20); about 2/3 of the exam will cover the last 1/3 of the course (lectures 22 and 25-36). Lectures 1, 21, 37, and 38 will not be covered on the exam.
Exam 2 (Mon March 30, 13:00-13:50)
Exam 2 was held Monday, March 30, from 13:00-13:50, using Compass. It was open-book, open-calculator, open-internet: you were allowed to Google for the answer if you want, but you COULD NOT COLLABORATE with any other human being.
Students who wish to take the exam from 7:00-7:50am Urbana time, instead of 13:00-13:50, should e-mail the instructor (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register for the 7:00 section.

General exam instructions
There will be three closed book exams: two midterms and a final. See the lecture schedule for the dates.
The exams are closed book. No notes are allowed. Electronic devices must be put out of sight/reach, ideally in a bag.
The room will be crowded. Please move into the middle of each row. Be aware that people may need to sit next to you.
In-class exams end at 13:50 (1:50pm), so you will have 45-50 minutes of working time, depending on how quickly we can pass out the exams. Please do not leave early; the exam is too crowded. In case you finish early, a page of ungraded brain-teasers will be provided at the end of the exam.
We will be grading scanned copies of the exams using a tool that automatically separates out answers for each question. A blank page will be provided at the end of the exam, which you may tear off to use as scratch paper. Other than that, do not take the exam apart. (If the sheets come apart accidentally, put your name on any loose sheets and warn the proctors when you turn it in.)
Points may be deducted for solutions which are correct but excessively complicated, hard to understand, poorly explained, or excessively hard to read. Assume that answers require brief justification/work, unless there is clear indication to the contrary.
Please bring any apparent bugs to the attention of the proctors.
Cheating (e.g. looking at another student's exam) is not allowed. Also, you may not do things that look like cheating, such as talking to your neighbor even if the topic is innocent. If your behavior is suspicious, we may take actions such as issuing warnings, reseating you, or having you take a makeup for the exam. If you have to do something that could be misinterpreted, e.g. pick up a dropped eraser or silence a ringing cell phone, please do it conspicuously so everyone can easily understand what you're doing.
You may not leave the room and then come back and continue working on your exam. If an emergency (e.g. upset stomach) forces you to leave before you have had time to finish, turn in your partial work and we'll schedule you to take a makeup.
