ASTR 100 (Hamilton)
EXAM II (100 points)
Tuesday, April 20

Details of the Exam

The exam will be given during lecture on Tuesday April 20 (normal time and place - PHYS 1412 from 9:30am - 10:45am). I will ask you to wait outside in the hall until the TAs and I have the exams laid out on the seats in the classroom. Please be patient; the exam should take no more than 75 minutes to complete, so you should have plenty of time. Bring a #2 pencil and your ID to the exam - notes, books, and calculators are not allowed! Just you and the pencil.

There will be 25 multiple choice question worth 2 points each. For each one, choose the best answer from the available choices. In addition, there will be a short answer section with 3-5 questions worth a total of 50 points. A few of these may involve interpreting mathematical equations, however, any equations that you need will be given to you so you don't need to memorize them. Written responses to short answer questions will be graded on completeness. It is always a good idea to go back and re-read the question after you have finished to make sure that you have answered it as completely and concisely as possible!

The exam will cover the lecture material through April 15, and Chapters 6-10 in the book. A small amount of Chapter 5 material may also appear on the test. If you have been keeping up in the class by attending lecture and section, reading and studying the book, reviewing your notes, doing your homework, and going over your corrected homeworks, you should be in good shape to take the midterm. It is a good idea to review this material again during the week before the midterm so that it will be fresh in your mind. Don't just cram the night before the exam!

Review Session

There will be a review session in PHYS1412 on Monday, April 19 from 7:00pm-9:00pm held by some of the ASTR100 TAs. Please bring lots of questions to the review session; this is your chance get some last minute help from experts!

Dr. Hamilton will hold extra office hours Monday April 19 from 10:00 - 1:00pm.
