Calculus for Social Sciences II (Sections 01 and 02)

Exam #1

Thursday, Feb. 14, In Class

The first exam covers Sections 4.9 through 5.5. It is recommended that you go over homework problems (HW#1 - 3) as well as 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 and 5 Review Exercises below. The odd answers are in the back of the book while the evens are listed here. 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 roughly one hour although you will have the full class period (plus a little extra) if necessary.

Exam Review Session: Tuesday, Feb. 12, 7:00 - 8:30 pm in O'Neil 112.

Note: 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.
