Calculus for Phys./Life Sciences 2

Exam #3

Thursday, April 27, 6:00 - 7:30 pm

HABERLIN 238

The third exam covers Chapters 9 and 10 (excluding Section 10.5.) You should go over homework problems as well as your class notes. Many of the problems and questions we discussed in class are excellent examples of test questions. I have also listed some sample problems from the Chapter 9 and 10 Reviews as well as the Check Your Understanding sections for those chapters below. The answers to the odd problems are in the back of the book while answers to even numbered problems are provided.

Click here for some practice questions (PDF file) for the exam. Solutions are available here (PDF file). The exam will be designed to take an hour although you will have the full 90 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, April 25th. Please come prepared with specific questions.
