Calculus 1, MATH 135


Tuesday, Dec. 15, 8:00 - 10:30 am, Swords 302

The final exam is CUMULATIVE, that is, it covers all the material from the first day of class onwards. Specifically, this is Chapters 1 through 4, excluding sections 1.7, 2.9, and 4.8. Approximately 25% will cover material from Sections 4.3 through 4.7. You should go over homework problems, in-class worksheets, the midterm exams, quizzes, and 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 4 Review below. The odd answers are in the back of the book while the evens are listed here. For other questions, see the previous exam review sheets: Exam 1, Exam 2, Exam 3. Note that some sections are poorly covered by the problems in the Chapter Review Exercises.

The exam will be designed to take two hours (twice the length of a midterm) although you will have the full 2.5 hours to complete the exam.

Final Exam Review Session: Monday, Dec. 14, 10:00 - 11:30 am in Swords 302, led by myself.
Please come prepared with specific questions.

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