Transformation Geometry and Symmetry

Isometries:  translation (vector of), rotation (center & angle of), reflection (line of)-- recognize, describe, and perform
(Coverage of glide reflections is optional; if included, should be accompanied by statement of this theorem:  Any isometry of the plane is either a translation, a rotation, a reflection, or a glide reflection.)

Symmetry:  Line symmetry, rotational symmetry-- identify and describe

Common Final Exam

Spring Semester 2013 Common Final Exam Date:  Saturday, May 11, 2013, 11:30am - 1:30pm.

All students enrolled in Math 310 take the common final in classrooms to be announced late in the semester.  Under certain circumstances (e.g. religious prohibition),  exceptions may be made by prior permission of the instructor, to take the final exam during the departmental make-up sessions.

Practice Problems for the Math 310 Final Exam (pdf file).

The problems on this practice demonstrate the breadth and level of difficulty of the final exam.

Supplemental Resources

A requirement for entrance into the CSU is completion of Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.  Students who would benefit from a review of basic algebra are encouraged to enroll in Math 102 or to purchase ALEKS before enrolling in Math 210 or Math 310.  ALEKS is a self-paced, computer tutoring program that reviews and provides practice in basic algebra.  A free trial on ALEKS is available.   Use this link if you would like to purchase access to ALEKS:  ALEKS
