- Key for collaborative Quiz here Note that problem 6 isn't good (you can't say much since the second derivative of f tells you about the third derivative of solutions...) A better question is "What can you say about the Euler's method approximation of dy/dt=f(y) if you know f(y)>0 and f'(y)>0 for all y?"

- Sample exam 1 here Note this is just to give you an idea of the form of the exam and the type of questions. Question 5 we covered pretty completely in class this semester, but re-doing it is good practice ("peak" at your notes only if necessary for hints!).
