**No make-up exams will be given.**If you miss an exam due to a

*documented*medical or family reason, that score will be replaced by the grade on the balance of the course. If you miss more than one exam for such reasons, you should probably withdraw from the course.

### Early Exam: **8:45 pm on Wednesday, February 7, 2018**

Bring a **photo ID**. No calculators will be allowed. If you have a cell phone or other electronic device on you, it must be

**switched off**and put away during the entire exam. We will not tolerate any violations of this policy!

**Bring a pen**to the exam: while you may do the midterm in pencil (or crayon), you can only contest grading of problems done in non-erasable ink.

**Location:**The exam for all three sections will be in

**Javits Lecture Center, Room 100**.

**Material: **
The exam consists of 20 multiple choice questions, covering the material
from MAT 125 and MAT 126, such as basic algebra, trigonometric functions,
limits, derivatives, integrals, etc. Before the exam, be sure to review things
that you may have forgotten since taking those classes. (For example, you could
look at the review questions at the end of each chapter in the textbook.) Your score on the early exam will tell you whether or not you are prepared to take MAT 127.

Here are two exams from previous semesters. Of course, the ability to do all of these is not a guarantee of success: the actual exam will cover similar material, not identical problems.

**Solutions:**
You can find solutions to the exam problems here.

**Results:**
If you received a score of 15 or less on the early exam, take it as a sign that
you need to review some of the material from MAT 125 and MAT 126. Look over
your exam to see which kind of questions (basic algebra, limits, derivatives, integrals, etc.) you got wrong, and study those topics again.
If you received a score of 9 or less, please talk to your instructor. If you find that you are having a lot of trouble computing derivatives and integrals, you might want to consider moving to MAT 126 instead; this can be done by filing
this
form with the registrar before 4pm on 3/2.

Below is a table of letter grade equivalents for the early exam; at this point, they are only meant as an indication of how you are doing, and are in no way binding. Your actual letter grade will be determined at the end of the semester, after all the exams have been taken.

range | letter grade |
