December 11, 3:20-4:40.
- Exam 2 is scheduled for
**Tuesday, November 13.**
- The exam will cover, roughly, the material of the course from the
previous exam through the material of Tuesday, November 6. However,
although some of Chapter 4 was covered on the previous exam, one cannot
really separate this material, so that the exam is best described as
covering:
- Chapter 4, omitting Section 4.8.2, 4.8.3, and 4.8.4;
- Chapter 5, omitting 5.5.1, 5.6.2, 5.6.3, and 5.6.4;
- Chapter 6, Sections 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3;
- Plus any needed material from earlier chapters and any additional material
covered in class.
