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; 2.1.2 # 1; 2.1.3 # 4

  • Problems from Homework to consider doing again: Chapter 1 #10; 2.1.1 #5, 10; 2.1.3 #5; HW3 #1-8; 3.1.1 #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.

  • New Problems: 4.1.2 #9; 4.3.3 #10; 4.3.4 #7, 9; 5.1.2 #3, 5, 11; 5.2.2 #1; 5.2.3 #2, 3; 5.2.5 #1

  • 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.
    In addition, you MUST turn in the take-home portion of the final exam at the beginning of the in-class final exam.

  • The in-class portion of the final exam will focus on trigonometry proofs (verifying an identity), algebra and trigonometry problems similar to those we've been working throughout the semester and relationships between harmonic, geometric and arithmetic means.
