MATH 15 -- CALCULUS I
TESTS AND FINAL EXAM
Fall 1999

There are four tests and a comprehensive final exam. The first half of each test and the first half of the final exam contain the same problems for all students; these problems are intended to test basic computational skills. The second half of each test and the second half of the final exam are made up by your instructor; they are intended to test your understanding of the ideas that are emphasized by your instructor in class.

 Test Time Date Material Covered 1 5:30-6:45 p.m. Tuesday, September 14 Sections 1.1 - 2.2 2 5:30-6:45 p.m. Tuesday, October 5 Sections 2.3 - 2.9 3 5:30-6:45 p.m. Tuesday, October 26 Sections 3.1 - 3.6, 3.8 4 5:30-6:45 p.m. Tuesday, November 16 Sections 3.10, 4.1 - 5.1 Final 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Thursday, December 16 All of Chapters 1-5 except sections 2.10, 3.7, and 3.9

The location of the exams will be announced later. You will not be allowed to use calculators during tests or the final exam. Hence, you should try to minimize the use of calculators when working on your homework.

GRADING: 100 points for each of the four tests and 200 points for the final exam. Your course grade will be based on the total points that you earn (600 possible points).

Material to be covered:

 Chapter 1: Limits and Rates of Change Chapter 2: Derivatives Chapter 3: The Mean Value Theorem and Curve Sketching Chapter 4: Integrals Chapter 5: Applications of Integration

The first day of class should probably be devoted to a general discussion of what calculus is (Stewart's discussion is on pp. 39-45 of his book).
