Calculus for Social Sciences II (Section 03)

Exam #1

Thursday, Feb. 18, In Class

The first exam covers Sections 4.8 through 5.5. It is recommended that you go over homework problems (HW# 1 - 3), your class notes and the quizzes. Many of the problems and questions we discuss in class are excellent examples of test questions. The solutions to your WebAssign problems on HW# 1 - 3 can be seen by clicking "View Key" near the top of each assignment. In addition, you can now use WebAssign to practice exercises similar to homework problems by clicking on the "practice another version" tab at the bottom of each problem.

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. 16, 8:00 - 9:30 pm in Swords 359.

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.
