Calculus for Phys./Life Sciences 1

Exam #2

Wednesday, Oct. 30, IN CLASS

The second exam covers Sections 1.7 and 2.1 - 2.7. You should go over 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 2 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 during Tuesday's class, Oct. 29th. Please come prepared with specific questions. The review problems below represent good questions to study from, however, you should also review homework problems and class examples as well. For example, problems from Sections 1.7 and 2.7 are not well represented in the list below.
