% Winter 2011  January to April 2011
First Midterm Test
==================
Calculators are not permitted during the first midterm test. You will
benefit from knowing the powers of two from 2^(4) to 2^16 and the
decimal and binary values of the hexadecimal digits from zero to fifteen.
Of course you can work them out; however, having at least some of them
memorized will make things go faster for you on the test.
(Remember that hexadecimal "A" = decimal 10 = binary 1010.)
Lecture Notes for This Week

From Blackboard Course Documents

These documents have restricted distribution and cannot be put on the
[Course Home Page].
* [01.ppt]  Introduction (vonNeumann, prefixes, reciprocal)
* [02.ppt]  Data Representation
 omit "Booth's algorithm" slides 5052
 ignore slides 6370 (the "simplified" model)
 slide 72 is wrong: IEEE 754 +0.0 is equal to 0.0
 ignore slides 7576 (floatingpoint multiplication)
 use my web pages and assignments instead for floatingpoint info
 you do not need to know how to do math with signmagnitude numbers
 you do need to know how to convert them to/from decimal
 you do not need to know how to do math with one's complement numbers
 you do need to know how to convert them to/from decimal
 you need to know how to do addition with two's complement numbers
 you also need to know how to convert them to/from decimal
 you do not have to multiply or divide or subtract any binary numbers
 omit most of the math in 2.8 "Error Detection and Correction"
 omit slides 94100
 omit slides 103115
