Review Information For Final Exam
Exam Overview: The final exam will count
grade (33+1/3% without a portfolio). It will cover only the material we
considered after the previous exam: related rates (as in section 3.9
from James Stewart's Calculus text that was posted on blackboard),
sections 5.1 -
5.4, 6.1, 6.2, 7.1, and 11.4. The exam
will be like the other two exams,
with some or all of the following: essay questions; definitions,
terminology; procedural problems; conceptual questions; multiple choice
items. As mentioned in discussing exam solutions, I
may also include one
or more items from the midterm exams.
Our final exam is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec 12,
11:20AM - 1:50PM.
I will hold modified office hours during the finals
period. Details will be posted on our webpage and blackboard.
- In order for classwork,
projects, homework, etc to be included in
grade, you must bring your Portfolio to the final exam. I will assign
portfolio a score to use in determining final grades. If you do not
in a portfolio, your grade will be based entirely on the in-class exams
At the final I will not be checking the assignments that were already
reviewed at prior exams. To get credit for that work you MUST
include the review sheets from those earlier exams. If your
portfolio was not reviewed at one or more of the earlier exams, and if
you have work that you wish to be considered at the final, you will
have to bring your portfolio to my office sometime during office hours
so that this work can be reviewed. However, this work will be
considered late, and will not carry the full credit that it would have
earned if it had been done on time.
- Portfolios will be returned
during the final exam. If for
I need to keep your portfolio longer than that, it can be picked up
me next semester. Any portfolio not claimed by April 1, 2018 will be
If you wish to make other arrangements to get your portfolio back,
No Sample Exam. I am not providing a sample exam
for the final, although a few
problems from an exam I used in another class are available here
and the solutions are available here.
At this point, you should have a pretty good idea what to expect.
By the time of the exam you should be prepared to complete exercises
like the ones assigned in homework, as well as conceptual questions
about integrals, the fundamental theorem of calculus, etc, like the
conceptual questions on earlier exams. You should also be
prepared to give correct mathematical statements of important
theorems and definitions.
Formulas Provided. The
final exam will include this reference list
with geometric formulas of the sort we used in related rates problems,
and basic indefinite integrals.
