5/14 (last message!)
The course is over, the final grades are in! You can view the statistics for the final exam as well as for the overall grades in the course. All the solutions are on the usual page. If you took the final exam, you can email me to find out your score.
I especially enjoyed teaching this calculus course - you were a good and engaged class! Thanks to everyone: you participated in discussion, homework-problem solving and asking questions, which made my job easier!
Have a great summer!
Exam 7 statistics and solutions will be in the usual place as soon as I get it graded.
The final exam is comprehensive, and the best way to study for it is to go over all of our exams to make sure you can do them. The problems on the final will be very much like those problems. There will be 6 pages on the final. Also, check out the sample final exam.
If you don't have your final grade, email me from your Murray State account to get it, so you can decide whether to take the final.
If you need to see me, my office hours for next week are:
Mon 9:30-10:30 and 1:00-3:00
Wed 9:30-10:30 and 12:30-1:30
Good luck on finals!
Exam 7 is scheduled for Friday. It will cover sections 4.9 and parts of chapter 5 (to be determined). Email me after the exam to find out your grade and overall score in the course, so you can decide whether to take the final exam.
Homework for chapter 5 has been posted and assigned over sections 5.1 and 5.2: write-ups will be due next week. Since we lost a day of classes this week, please read yourselves the part of section 5.2 entitled "Properties of the Definite Integral".
The grade computer has been modified to calculate scores based on our syllabus (it now has slots for all 7 exams). Avail yourself to its power and see how well you need to do on the next exams in order to get a desired grade. (And let me know if it appears to be working improperly...)
Exam 5 turned out quite well. Statistics and solutions are in the usual place.
Exam 6 is scheduled for next Friday, covering sections 4.5-4.7 and 4.9. For sample problems, check out sample exam 6 (all) and problems 1-3 and 9 of exam 7.
Write-ups for 4.5 and 4.6 are due on Monday.
Having finished exam 5, you can enjoy the wonderful weather this weekend. If you would like to look ahead, check out homework for section 4.5
Only four more weeks to go! I anticipate exams 6 and 7 to be on the Fridays two and four weeks from now.
Exam 5 has been scheduled for next Friday. It will cover sections 4.2-4.4. Look at sample exam 5 for practice problems.
I anticipate that write-ups for 4.3 and 4.4 will be due on Wednesday, but will let you know if this changes.
Having finished exam 4 and the chapter, you can relax. The homework assignment for Chapter 4 will be coming shortly.
Exam 4, covering sections 3.7-3.11 is planned for Friday after spring break. See sample exam 4.
Homework in 3.9 and 3.10 has been assigned for Tuesday after spring break. If you have trouble with inverse trigonometric functions or logarithms, check homework for sections 1.5 adn 1.6 for review.
Have a great spring break! (But don't forget calculus...)
Exam 3 is turned out reasonably well. If you did not do as well as you hoped, there are still 4 more opportunities (exams) to improve. See me for help if you need it.
See the usual place for scores and the solution.
Exam 3 is scheduled for next Friday, covering sections 3.3-3.7 (or less, if we don't get that far). Check sample exam 3 to see some problems that have been on the test in the past.
The write-up of 3.2 will be due next week, with 3.3 (day to be announced). Until then, since we just had an exam, you can take a breather.
Exam 2 is scheduled for Friday of next week (2/18), covering 2.5-2.7, 3.1 and 3.2. Homework in 2.7 has been assigned. The write-ups of Sections 2.7-3.2 will be due next week, most likely Wednesday.
If you are at a loss at what to do in Calculus this weekend, start homework in 2.5. We are nearly finished with it and will discuss homework from it on Tuesday. The write-ups of Sections 2.5 and 2.6 will be due next week.
Our first exam is scheduled for Friday of next week. It will cover sections 2.1-2.4. Check out sample exam 1 on the "scores and docs" page to get a feeling of what an exam would look like. Try to do this exam in 50 minutes on your own. While this exam is representative of what you might see on Friday, everything we did in class and what was given for homework is fair game.
Homework for 2.1 and 2.2 should have been turned in today. If not, get it to me as soon as possible. Homework for 2.3 and 2.4 is being turned in on Wednesday.
Welcome to the course! Look around to familiarize yourself with the layout of these webpages. Note that the most important links at left are highlighted. All documents (homework assignment, solutions to exams, etc.) can be found at the "scores and documents" page.
These pages will get more content as information becomes available. Check back often: useful information is provided in the "home" section (which you are reading), typically updated weekly. Homework assignments will be updated when we start a new chapter.
