First Midterm: 8:45 pm on Monday, February 19, 2018Bring a photo ID. No calculators will be allowed. 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. Sorry. The midterm covers material in Chapter 2 of the text (through 2.6), with knowledge of chapter 1 and Appendix A, B, and C assumed as background.
Doing all of the homework problems prior to the exam is a very good idea. Doing additional problems from the text can be helpful.
In order to help you review and prepare, David Kahn has kindly allowed us to use some chapters from his AP Calculus book:
You can watch the video of
session from a previous semester. While this was a different
semester , the material covered is pretty much the same.
There are also review sessions being held at the following times:
- Friday 3-4:20pm in ESS-001 by Prof. Andersen (mostly for Lecture 3, but anyone else that fits in the room is welcome).
- Saturday 1:30-2:30pm in ESS-001 by Stephanie Salvator.
- Sunday 2-3:30pm in ESS-001 by Prof. Sutherland
- Lectures 1 and 3 will also do reviewing in class on monday.
You should be able to do the problems on the exams from previous
semesters that you see below. (A few of these have material from later
sections that we haven't covered yet.)
Note that our exam will have different problems, in possibly different
formats, from any of these old exams. "Different" doesn't mean the same with
just a number changed.
Still, they should give you an idea of the range and difficulty to expect.
Solutions will show up here later in the week. Try doing them first.
The midterm will be in a variety of rooms, depending on which recitation you are in. These are listed below.

Second Midterm: 8:45 pm on Thursday, March 29, 2018
The second midterm will cover the material we have covered since the first exam:
As before, David Kahn has kindly posted some chapters from his book to help you prepare:
- Chapter 6a: the Power Rule (solutions to problems)
- Chapter 6b: the Product, Quotient, and Chain Rules (solutions to problems)
- Chapter 6c: Derivatives of Trig Functions (solutions to problems)
- Chapter 7: Implicit Differentiation (solutions to problems)
- Chapter 8: Equations of Tangent Lines (solutions to problems)
- Chapter 11: Derivatives of Logs and Exponentials (solutions to problems)
- Chapter 17: Inverse Trig Functions (solutions to problems)
- Chapter 10: Related Rates (solutions to problems)
You can watch the video of a review session from spring 2015. This doesn't include material on related rates or max/min of functions, but will be helpful anyway.
Final Exam: during the week of April 23, and 8 am on Wednesday, May 9, 2018
The final will be cumulative, covering everything that we have done in the class.
