- Note: In studying these samples, bear in mind that the course has changed
a little each year - in particular, don't worry if there are modelling
techniques on these exams that we haven't covered (yet) in the lectures.
The midterm will only cover things we have met in lectures.

forget that previous instances of this course covered more design than
we do now, so ignore exam questions asking to give detailed designs.
