Calculus 1, MATH 135-04

Exam #2

Thursday, Nov. 5, In Class

The second midterm exam covers Chapter 2 (excluding Sections 2.1 and 2.9) and Sections 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3. It is recommended that you go over homework problems (HW #4 - 6), class notes, worksheets, and the quizzes. Many of the problems and questions that we have discussed in class are excellent examples of test questions.

In addition, some good review problems from the Chapter 2 and 3 Review Exercises are listed below. The odd answers are in the back of the book while the evens are listed here. The exam will be designed to take roughly one hour although you will have 90 minutes if needed.

Exam Review Session: Tuesday, Nov. 3, 6:30 - 8:00 pm in Swords 302, led by Kate Spitler.
Please come prepared with specific questions.

Note: You will be allowed a scientific calculator for the exam which does NOT have graphing capabilities. Please bring your own calculator with you to the exam.
