Midterm I

Instructions

Material covered
Midterm I will cover all material from section 5.4 to 6.3.

Preparation
• Old homework questions
• Unassigned homework questions
• The ``Questions to guide your review" and ``Practice exercises" contain extra problems. I am not suggesting you do all the problems. It is just a list from which you can choose.
• To get an idea of what is required of you in the time given here is a list of problems that you can use as a sample test: page 485 n. 28, 29, 39; page 511 n.26, page 534 n. 20, 25, prove using calculus that ln(xy)= ln(x) + ln(y) for x and y >0.

Final exam (TUESDAY DECEMBER 16, 2:00pm-4:30pm, IN CLASS)

Instructions

Material covered
All sections from 5.4 to 8.8, except 6.4, and 7.5 (subject to change).

Preparation
See above to prepare the material covered in the first two midterms.
Textbook
• Old homework questions
• Unassigned homework questions
• Questions to guide your review and Practice Exercises
• To get an idea of what is required of you in the time given here is a list of problems that you can use as a sample test: Section 5.5. n.22, 5.6 n.10, Prove Theorem 1 of section 6.2, 6.3 n.20, 6.5 n. 74, 7.1 n.38, 7.3 n.30, 7.6 n.35 and 26, 7.7 n.46, use epsilon N to show that 1/n! -->0, page 708 n. 32,26,47. It is important that you understand when you can use a theorem: are the hypotheses of the theorem you would like to use in the problem at hand satisifed, etc. When you learn a theorem be sure to understand the hypotheses and how they are used; find counterexamples to the statement of the theorem when one or more of the hypotheses are not true.
• Last semester's 142 final. ; use it as another sample test.
• You may be asked to state and give examples or counterexamples to the theorems we have learned in class (the book is your precise guideline). You may be asked to give proofs of the following: properties of natural logarithms and exponentials, Theorem 2 (section 6.3), Integration by Parts, Theorem 1 (section 7.6), the integral of 1/x^p (section 7.7 Ex.3), proofs with epsilon and N, the geometric series.
