What will be covered in the midterm?

Answering questions in the midterm
- You may bring in any printed materials to the midterm; any textbooks, any papers, etc.
- You may use any calculator during the midterm.
- You may answer the questions in any order in the answer booklet.
- Time saving tip: please use bullet points to answer, where appropriate, and never repeat the question back in your answer.
- If anything seems unclear, or information appears to be incomplete, please make a reasonable assumption and continue with the question.
How to prepare for the midterm
- Understand the concepts being learned. My courses are not about applying the correct equation and solving.
- Check that your answers are reasonable (can you really have a flow rate of 1050 \(\text{m}^3.\text{s}^{-1}\) through a pipe?)
- Read the questions carefully: they are usually worded precisely. The biggest point where students loose marks is to answer only part of the question.
- Questions that you did on computer in the assignments: make sure you can repeat them by hand.
- Can you sketch plots roughly by hand
- Integrals and differentiating must be done analytically, where possible: revise your calculus notes if you are not comfortable with this.
