Calculus 1 with FUNdamentals

Exam #2

Thursday, Oct. 31, In Class

The second exam covers Chapter 2 (excluding Sections 2.1 and 2.2) and Sections 3.1 and 3.2. It is recommended that you go over homework problems (HW#4 - 6), 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#4 - 6 can be seen by clicking "View Key" near the top of each assignment. I have also listed many, many practice problems on WebAssign titled ``Exam 2 Review Problems.''

In addition, some good review problems from the Chapter 2 Review Exercises are listed 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: Wednesday, Oct. 30th, 8:00 - 9:30 pm in Swords 302, with our TA Meg Norton.
Please come prepared with specific questions.

Note: You will be allowed a scientific calculator for the exam which does NOT have graphing capabilities.
Also, extra credit will be given out for wearing a halloween costume to the exam.

Chapter 2 Review Exercises, pp. 165 - 168
Problems:   1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 13, 14, 16, 18, 21, 25, 29, 30 (a and b), 33, 34, 35, 36, 37a, 39, 40, 41, 42, 45

The answers to the evens are:
4.   0
10.   -1
14.   1/3
16.   0
18.   -1
30.   (a) f'(2) = 10, (b) y = 10x - 16
34.   Your graph should be positive (above the x-axis) until a small positive x-value, then become negative (below the x-axis).
36.   Your graph should be discontinuous at the cusp since the function is not differentiable at that point.
40.   a = f, b = f'' and c = f'.
42.   The first derivative of the cost of living function is positive since the cost rises but the second derivative is negative because it is rising at a slower rate (slopes decreasing means concave down).
