# Announcements

- No homework during week of Nov 17-24. CMU is closed on Nov 22. Happy Thanksgiving!
- DATE/TIME for SECOND EXAM: Fri Dec 8th at 6:00 p.m. in GHC 4307.
DIRECTIONS: You can bring a 3x5 index card with writing on 1 side of the card.
If you don't know what to put on your card, here's a good list:
- Table 3.2 from Chpt 3 of your book
- The Laplace transform and z-transform for common distributions. In particular the Laplace transform of an Exponential is a useful one.
- The basics of an M/M/1: pi_i, E[N], E[T].

- Warmup Sheets to help with needed Calculus Background:
