Exam 1
  • This exam will cover derivatives and integrals, focusing on the sections of Active Calculus that we have studied, up to Section 6.2.
  • You may bring a 3-by-5 inch index card filled (on both sides) with any reference material that you would like during the exam. Index cards will be provided in class on Sept. 27.
  • Calculators will be permitted, but probably not very helpful, and certainly not necessary.
  • Books, phones, and internet-capable devices will not be permitted during the exam.
  • A set of review problems is available on Edfinity.
