Calculus for Social Sciences 1 (Sections 01 and 02)


Saturday, Dec. 8, 8:30 - 11:30 am, Swords 359 (Section 01)
Monday, Dec. 10, 8:30 - 11:30 am, Swords 359 (Section 02)

The final exam is CUMULATIVE, that is, it covers all the material from the first day of class onwards. Approximately 20% will cover material from Sections 4.5 - 4.7. You should go over homework problems, the midterm exams, quizzes and your class notes. Many of the problems and questions we discuss in class are excellent examples of test questions.

I have also listed some sample problems from the Chapter 4 Review below. The odd answers are in the back of the book while the evens are listed here. For questions from other chapters, see the previous exam review sheets: Exam 1 (Chapter 1) , Exam 2 (Chapter 2) , Exam 3 (Chapter 3 and Sections 4.2, 4.3) Note that some sections are poorly covered by the problems in the Chapter Review Exercises. The Concept-Check at the end of each chapter (before the exercises) is also a source for good questions.

The exam will be designed to take two hours (twice the length of a midterm) although you will have the full 3 hours to complete the exam.

Important Note: You will be allowed one "cheat sheet" 8.5 x 11 piece of paper, front and back, full of whatever formulas, graphs, etc. you wish. You will be given a scientific calculator for the exam which does NOT have graphing capabilities so be prepared to answer questions without your personal calculator or computer.
