Math 308 Differential Equations Sections 504 and 507 Fall 2008 Final Exam PRACTICE Final PRACTICE The Final Exam will be in the usual classroom Name On my honor as an Aggie l have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this academic work7 Signature of student Read all of the following information before starting the exam Show your work You may use your notecards but no calculators or other notes are permitted You do not need to simplify arithmetic expressions For example 12 7 02 is okay but 2 3 is not Circle or otherwise indicate your nal answers This practice test has 17 problems This is longer than the length of the actual Final Exam Its about twice as long The actual nal will be about 9 problems The Final Exam covers sections 1114 2126 31 32 34 36 37 41 49 5154 7178 selections from 8183 and 9195 It covers everything you7ve learned The actual test will be approximately 25 exam 1 material 25 exam 2 material and 50 the new stuff I cant have every single type of problem on the nal but there will be a nice selection Upcoming O ice Hours Wednesday December 3 from 1130AM 1230 Friday December 5 from 1130AM 1230 Monday December 8 from 1130AM 1230 I can stay past
