Exams
There will be three in-class exams, on dates TBA. (Dates will also be announced in class.) The final exam is Monday, December 10th, 8AM - 9:55AM.
  • Exam 1: Friday, September 28th. Here is a practice exam, which is the first exam I gave last time I taught this course. The graphs on problem 2 are not included, so just sketch your own graphs of whatever functions you feel like, and then see if you can sketch the derivatives of those functions.
  • Exam 2: Monday, November 5th. Here is an old exam on this material you can use to study. Note: you can ignore the last problem, which covers proofs that we did not discuss in class.
  • Exam 3: Friday November 30th. Here is a sample exam, which was the actual third exam I gave last time I taught this class. You can ignore problem 8, and 6b and 6c are substitution problems (Which will NOT be on this exam, but ARE fair game for the final).
  • Final Exam: Monday, December 10th, 8AM - 955AM in Ayer 112. Here is an old final from the last time I taught this class. Please ignore problems 4, 5, and 7c. Show up a little early if you want to start a little early.
