## Exam 1 for Math 502, Fall 2017

Exam 1 was held on Wed., Oct. 25. Problem Set 8 was the sample exam. The exam was out of a total of 100 (four problems worth 10 points each, and four
worth 15 points each).
This exam and the next one together count the same amount as the homeworks (collectively) toward the course grade.
(A portion of the course
grade is based on participation in class and lab.)
Half of the class did extremely well on the exam, with a narrow range of grades at the top end.
The other half of the class had grades that were quite spread out.
As a reflection of this, the bottom scores in the top quartile, second quartile, and third quartile were 99, 95, and 83. The two most common scores were 95 and 100. To give an idea of how to interpret the numerical grades, scores of 90 and above can be
viewed as in the A range (from A- to A+) and those between 65 and the upper 80s can be viewed as in the
B range (from B- to B+)

Individual grade information is available on Canvas.
