Calculus for Phys./Life Sciences 1

Exam #1

Wednesday, Oct. 2, IN CLASS

The first exam covers Sections 1.1 - 1.6. You should go over the homework problems 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 1 Review below. The exam will be designed to take the full class period (45-50 minutes).

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.

Exam Review: We will review for the exam in Tuesday's class, Oct. 1st. Please come prepared with specific questions.
