Notes

Identification

For all exams, you must bring your Stony Brook ID. The IDs will be checked against picture sheets. So please also insure you take the midterm in the correct room.

Electronic device policy

It is not permitted to use cell phones, calculators, laptops, or other such electronic devices at any time during exams. If you need to leave the exam room for any reason before the end of the exam, it is still not permitted to use such devices. Only for those exams in which word problems are included and only for those students for whom English is a second language, electronic translators will be allowed but only for the purpose of translating word problems. Before beginning to use such a device, the student must raise his or her hand and notify a proctor of the situation.

Diagnostic quiz

Tuesday, September 14th, 8:30-10pm The purpose of this quiz is to assess your competence in pre-calculus mathematics. The quiz will be all multiple choice questions. All students are required to take the quiz; 1% of the final score breakdown will be awarded simply for completing the quiz. Students who score exceptionally well will be awarded another 1%.

All students who completed the Diagnostic Quiz receive full credit of 2% towards the total class points.


There were two typos on the solutions of the exam. On Problem 7 and Problem 9, the correct answer was not listed among the possible answers. The solutions to all problems on the exam are here.

All students who receive a score of less than 5 on the quiz should schedule an appointment with their instructor right away to discuss whether MAT 131 is the appropriate calculus course.

AS THE FINAL EXAM IS CUMULATIVE, STUDENTS ARE ALSO URGED TO REVIEW THE MIDTERMS AND REVIEW SHEETS FROM EARLIER IN THE SEMESTER.


Students asked for additional applied max/min problems beyond those on the review sheets, the practice exams, and the textbook. There are additional problems on the Max/Min webpage of Calculus.org webpage. I also found some more related rates problems on John Taylor's calculus webpage (linked from the Calculus.org webpage).
