{\Large 2021/22 MAT257 Term Test 3 Information and Rejected Questions}
\end{center}
\begin{itemize}
\item The test will take place on Tuesday March 8, 5-7PM, at EX320. It will be a ``closed book'' exam: no books and no notes of any kind will be allowed, no cell-phones, no calculators, no devices of any kind that can display text. So only stationary will be allowed, as well as minimal hydration and snacks, and stuffed animals for joy and comfort. Don't forget to bring your UofT ID!
\item Our TA Jessica Liu will hold extra pre-test office hoursin her usual \href{https://utoronto.zoom.us/j/82408624070}{zoom room}. (password vchat), on Monday at 4-5:30PM and on Tuesday at 1-2:30PM.
\item I will hold my regular office hours, plus an additional hour and a half, on Tuesday at 9:30-12 at Bahen 6178 and simultaneously at \url{http://drorbn.net/vchat}.
\item Material: Everything up to and including Friday's material, chains and boundaries of chains, with greater emphasis on the material that was not included in Term Test 2 (meaning, starting with the proof of the COV formula, and then $k$-tensors and all that followed). The questions will be a mix of direct class material, questions from homework, and ``fresh'' questions. This is more similar to TT1 than to TT2 which was ``all fresh''.
\item The format will be ``Solve 7 of 7'', or maybe ``6 of 6'' or ``5 of 5''.
\item To prepare: Do last years' \href{http://drorbn.net/AcademicPensieve/Classes/2021-257-AnalysisII/2021-257-TT3.pdf}{2021-257-TT3} and the TT3 ``rejects'' available below. But more important: make sure that you understand every single bit of class material so far!
\end{itemize}
The following questions were a part of a question pool for the 2020-21 MAT257 Term Test 3, but at the end, they were not included.
\begin{enumerate}
\item Prove that the Change of Variables (COV) theorem holds even without the assumption on the invertibility of $g'$.
\item It is common to identify $\bbR^3$ with the space of column vectors of length 3, and to identify $(\bbR^3)^\ast$ with the space of row vectors of length 3. With this in mind, find the dual basis to the basis $v_1=\begin{pmatrix}1\\3\\0\end{pmatrix}$, $v_2=\begin{pmatrix}2\\4\\0\end{pmatrix}$, $v_3=\begin{pmatrix}0\\0\\5\end{pmatrix}$ of $\bbR^3$.
\item Let $V$ be a vector space, let $\phi\colon V\to V\times V$ be given by $\phi(v)=(v,v)$ and let $\psi\colon V\times V\to V\times V$ be given by $\psi(v,w)=(w,v)$. Let $B\colon V\times V\to\bbR$ be a bilinear function. Prove that $\phi^\ast B=0$ iff $B+\psi^\ast B=0$.
\item Prove that in $S_k$, for $k>1$, there is an equal number of odd and even permutations.
\item Let $\sigma\in S_n$ be the permutation given by $\sigma i=i+1$ for $i
