Exam Reviews

  • Midterm 1 Review
    Note: For the exam, you may bring one 8.5x11 inch sheet of paper of notes (front and back) and a calculator. No other electronics are allowed for any reason during the exam.

  • New Problems: Chapter 1 #6, 11; 2.1.1 #1, 6, 7, 11; 2.1.2 # 1; 2.1.3 # 4; 3.1.2 #6

  • Problems from Homework to consider doing again: Chapter 1 #10; 2.1.1 #5, 10; 2.1.3 #5; HW2 A #1-8; 3.1.1 #4, 5, 7; 3.2.2 #1, 5

    IMPORTANT NOTE: I will expect you to know how to solve classic algebra and calculus word problems. For example, you need to be sure you remember how to differentiate and find min/max points of a function.

  • Midterm 2 Review
    Note: For the exam, you may bring one 8.5x11 inch sheet of paper of notes (front and back) and a calculator. No other electronics are allowed for any reason during the exam.

  • Final Review
    Note: For the exam, you may bring one 8.5x11 inch sheet of paper of notes (front and back) and a calculator. No other electronics are allowed for any reason during the exam.

  • Final Review Problems 8.1.1 #9, 8.1.2 #5, 17, 8.1.3 #6, 8, 9, 9.1.3 #8 (optional but fun), 10.1.1 #1, 11, 10.1.4 #1(ab), 10.3.1 #4, 7, 8, 10.3.2 #1,2

  • I would also recommend re-doing the problems from midterms 1 and 2 and looking through your homework problems as some review.
