Calculus for Social Sciences 1


Monday, Dec. 10, 2:30 - 5:00 pm, HAB 238 (Note the Room Change!)

The final exam is cumulative, that is, it covers all the material from the first day of class onwards. Approximately 50-60% will cover the material from Chapters 4 and 5. This is sections 14.1 - 14.5 and 15.1 - 15.6. You should go over homework problems, class notes and past quizzes and exams.

The exam will be designed for 100 minutes (twice the length of the mid semester exams) so you should have plenty of time to complete it in the alloted 2.5 hour time slot. You will be expected to use a calculator on the exam. However, you are not allowed to store formulas in your calculator's memory nor use any graphing capabilities your calculator may have for curve sketching problems.

FINAL EXAM Review: Thursday, Dec. 6th, in SWORDS 359 from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. Please come prepared with specific questions from the chapter reviews, past exams, homework problems, etc.

List of Topics By Chapter

Some sample problems from Chapter 4 and 5 are given below. Note that this is only a partial list. In many cases, the homework problems more accurately reflect the material covered in class. For example, there are better word problems from the homework in Section 4.5 than there are in the Chapter 4 review. For problems from the other Chapters, see the review sheets from past Exams and quizzes.
