Summer 2014 Math 131A Analysis

Final Exam General Information

What to do if you have an exam conflict
As announced in the course syllabus, the final exam will be given in lecture on Thursday,
July 31, 2014 at the usual lecture time (9:00am-10:50am) in Kinsey Pavilion 1200B. If
you cannot make the final exam due to serious illness requiring a doctors note or a family
emergency, you must notify me by email as soon as possible. There are no makeup exams.

What to bring to the exam

Be sure to bring enough pens, pencils, and erasers. No calculators, notes, or electronic
devices will be allowed. All cell phones and portable electronic devices must be turned off
and put away during the entire exam.

Tips on exam taking

Dont rush. The exam will be designed to take 1 hour and 50 minutes. If you get stuck on
a problem, it is best to move on to the next problem. Do all the problems you understand
well first, and then come back to finish the ones you find more challenging to maximize the
number of points you will receive on the exam. You must write a complete organized solution
in order to receive full credit.

Exam content
Many of the exam questions will be similar to problems on the homework assignments,
examples covered in class, and examples in the textbook. There will be 8-10 problems (some
with multiple parts). Some problems may be theoretical, while others may be computational
in nature. The exam covers the material from the sections of our textbook listed below.
