Midterm 1 Preparation
Midterm 1 will be held on Wednesday March 20th, 7:00-9:00 pm. Unless you have made alternative arrangements via the DSP, the room location will be determined by the last two digits of your SID:
- 00-32: Dwinelle 155
- 33-45: Genetics and Plant Biology 100
- 46-62: Hearst Annex A1
- 63-99: Pimentel 1
Midterm 1 will cover material from lectures 1-15, HW1-7, Section 1-6, P1-3. Note that exam questions will in many cases ask you to extend or combine basic ideas and algorithms from class. Make sure you understand the fundamentals in addition to being able to procedurally execute algorithms. The exam will not test your knowledge of Python, however questions may assume familiarity with the projects (see past exams for examples).
The midterm will be closed notes, books, laptops, and people. However, you may use a one-page (two-sided) cheat sheet of your own design (group design ok but not recommended).
Practice Midterm 1 is available here. This is meant for you to simulate exam environment and help assess where you are at. It is optional. You are able to earn 1pt of extra credit on Midterm 1 by appropriately completing it by its deadline: 11:59pm on Monday March 18th.
In addition to regular office hours, we will be holding midterm review sessions during the normal discussion section slots. There will be 5 types of review session, each covering one week's worth of materials through some review and then a past exam question on that week's topic. You can attend as many as you like.

Note that in previous years, topics were covered in varying orders, and so the midterm topics do not align perfectly.
You can also look at much older exams from other versions of the class, but be aware that the syllabus has changed over time.
