Astronomy 100 | Section 2 | Fall 2003 |
---|

**Date:**Monday, December 15**Place and Time**: In normal classroom (Greg 100) at 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. The exam is designed however for a 2 hour exam.**Format**: 80 multiple choice plus 4 Bonus (or extra credit) problems**Bring:**- Yourself, well-rested and well-studied
- A #2 pencil
- A UIUC student ID
- On the test you will be given numbers or equations (if
any) that you will need. You may
**not**use your book or your class notes. However, you may bring**1 piece of regular, 8.5"×11" paper**with notes written on it. You may write whatever notes you like on (both sides of) the paper. It is a very good idea to write your own sheet, as the exercise of deciding what is important, organizing it, and writing it down, is a good way to study. **Topics included**: 20 questions from the material on Exam 1, 20 questions from the material on Exam 2, and 40 questions from the new material-- Extraterrestrial life to the Early Universe. Lecture and reading material are both included. My goal is to test for understanding of the concepts we have discussed, and how they fit together.**Study tips.**We have covered a lot of material in a short time, so here are some tips on how to approach your studies for the exam.- As noted above, both lecture and reading material can be included. However, note that topics covered in lecture are an indication of what I think is the most important material, so these are worth special focus.
- Also, the homework questions have good examples of questions which will
be featured on the exam. An excellent way to begin studying is to review the
homework problems and the old exams, particularly those you missed (or got right but were not
so sure about). Be sure you understand what the right answer is, and more
importantly,
**why**it is right. - You will need to understand and be able to use any equations that have been introduced in class. Calculations using these equations will be kept simple--it is possible to do the exam without a calculator, but you can bring one if you wish.

**In-Class Q and A:**On Friday Dec. 15th we will have a comprehensive review sesion class to ask questions about material on the exam. For example, if there are homework answers you do not understand, this would be an excellent time to ask. To get the most out of this time, you are strongly encouraged to begin studying prior to this class.**Out of Class Q and A:**On Thursday and Friday, Dec. 18th and 19th, Leslie will have office hours from 10:30-11:30 am, and on Monday Dec 15th from 11:45-12:45 am. To get the most out of this time, you are strongly encouraged to begin studying before going.
