to each exam on which you can put on both sides whatever material you wish from the
course coverage (definitions, formulas, theorems, results, etc.) as an Exam Reference Sheet

To encourage you to establish a good habit for the quarter, before the first exam only, you can upload a copy of this Exam Reference
