This is an open book examination, you may use your text and notes. There are 10 problems and the total exam is worth 300 points. Make certain that you show all your work on the exam. You may use the reverse side of each page if necessary; if you use scratch paper, be sure to staple it to the exam. I will give partial credit for your work that would lead to a correct solution. However, if you are pointed in the completely wrong direction, you will not receive any partial credit. You have until 4:00 PM on 10/31/20 to complete the exam and an additional 30 minutes to scan and email a copy in .pdf format back to me. You are not to discuss any problem or solution with anyone. If you have any questions, then please email me and I will respond as quickly as possible.
By my signature below, I certify that I have not given nor received any assistance from or to any person on this exam. I also certify that I have fully complied with the closed book requirements listed above.
