# Exams

### Notes

- You must show up on time for all exams. Within the first 30 minutes of each exam, no students will be allowed to leave the exam room. No students arriving after the first 30 minutes will be allowed to take the exam. Students finishing within the last 10 minutes of the exam must remain until the exam is over and then follow the instructions for turning in their exam (for instance, students are often asked to turn in exams row-by-row).
- All exams are closed notes and closed book. Once the exam has begun, having notes or books on the desk or in view will be considered cheating. For the midterms in which word problems are included, only for those students for whom English is a second language, translation dictionaries will be allowed, but only for the purpose of translating word problems. Before beginning to use such a dictionary, the student must raise his or her hand and notify a proctor of the situation.
- If you have a university-approved reason for taking an exam at a time different than the scheduled exam (because of a religious observance, a student-athlete event, etc.), please contact your instructor and Jason Starr as soon as possible.

### 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**

- Javits 100: Recitations R04, R06, R07, R08, R09, R11
- Javits 102: Recitations R01, R03, R05
- Javits 110: Recitations R12, R13

## 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.

### MIDTERM 1

**Thursday, October 7th, 8:30-10pm**

- Javits 100: Recitations R05, R06, R07, R08, R09, R11, R12, R13
- Earth and Space Sciences 001: Recitations R01, R03, R04

The solutions to all problems on the exam are here.

For the purposes of gauging your performance in the course at this point in the semester, here is a rough letter grade ranking of scores on Midterm 1. A: 100-81, B: 80-61, C:60-46, C-: 45-41, D: 40-31, Fail: less than 31.

It is a good idea to prepare for the exams throughout the semester,
and not just before the exam.

Here is a review sheet for Midterm 1, prepared for the Fall 2008 semester
(pdf, dvi, ps).

The "Archimedes triangle" Java
applet mentioned in the review sheet is available on the following webpage.

Here are the solutions to the review sheet, except for the
solutions of the graphing problems.

### 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).
