The midterm will be in-class, October 27, 11am-12:20pm (80 minutes). It covers the material up to Week 3 (ODEs and 1-D space-time PDEs), including Homework 1 through 4. The midterm is open-book, open-notes; no communication. Electronic devices are permitted but without internet connection. A calculator may be helpful but not essential.
Below are some practice midterms from previous years, with solutions. Note that the 2014 class material included a lecture on the Schrodinger equation in quantum mechanics, and the 2012 and 2013 midterms were outside-class with a longer (3-hour) time limit.
