Author: Steve Norman

Please keep these points in mind as you look at old midterms and solutions …

• Course topics and the order of course topics have changed over the many years in which this course has been offered.
• Even in recent years, midterm topics have varied because midterm dates relative to course start dates have varied.

Correction, posted around 3:30pm Mon Feb 5 2018: The AND calculation in part a of the Problem 4 solutions is incorrect. The value of \$t1 should be

[12 zeros]_1010_0110_[12 zeros]
(0xa is 1010, not 1011.) The given answer is correct—it just looks wrong because of the wrong \$t1 value.

Another correction, posted around 10:10pm Mon Feb 5 2018: In Problem 3, the value of \$s1 is 0x7fff_eb7c, not 0x7fff_e97c.

Historical Notes for 2001–2012

Please keep in mind that topic coverage has varied from year to year, because the midterm has not always been in the sixth week of the term, as it was in 2008 and 2009, or at the beginning of the seventh week, as in 2010. For example, the 2006 midterm was in the eighth week of term, so it covered more topics than the 2008–2010 midterms did.

Topic order changed a little starting in Winter 2005 due to the switch to the 3rd edition of the textbook.

The switch to the 4th edition of the textbook did not change the order of topic coverage in January and February 2009–2012. relative to January and February 2008.

Revisions to the textbook mean that the course content in March and April 2009–2012 was significantly different from course content in March and April 2008. That would have affected use of old final exams, not old midterms.

Attention: Problem 5 on the 2009 midterm is based on Lab 5 Exercise E of 2009, which may also be a lab exercise in 2012. However, in 2012 it would be an optional exercise. There will not be any midterm or final exam questions based on this lab exercise in 2012.
