The midterm will cover all the material we have covered after the first midterm, that is, all the topics in the following sections on which we have done homework: §§ 14.5, 14.6, 16.1, 16.2, 16.3, 16.6, and 16.7. There will probably be four or five problems.
Please read the "Information for all tests" on the quizzes and tests info page.
Be sure you can do all the homework problems and all the quiz problems. You might want to review the sample quiz questions, too.
Some sample midterm questions - a fourth question was added on 11/15.
Corrected Solutions for the sample midterm questions. (There was a typo in the 3(a) answer, a y3 now changed to y2.)
There's a "MT 2 Review" assignment (will not be scored or counted) on WebAssign. And two more, if you need more: p. 1107, #5 & 13 (answers in back of book).
