Exam 5 is scheduled for our regular final exam time, Wednesday at 10:30 in our usual classroom. It will cover sections 4.7, 5.3 and 5.5. Check out the following problems for samples:

Exam 6: 1-5, 7, 9-11

I will have exam 5 graded that afternoon and will send your overall grade to your murraystate email by the evening. Then you will know whether to take the final exam, which will be on Friday.

We will meet on Tuesday at 12:00 for any questions over homework in 5.5 or anything else ahead of Exam 5. Otherwise, my office hours for next week will be:

Monday: 9:30-10:30, 1:00-3:00
Tuesday: 10:00-12:00, 1:30-3:00
Wednesday: 9:30-10:30, 1:00-3:00
Thursday: 10:00-3:00

The final exam will be comprehensive, and its problems will be very much like the problems on the past 5 exams. Therefore, start studying for the final by making sure you can do all the problems on the exams so far, especially the ones where you did poorly. Solutions to all the exams have been posted (or will be, in the case of exam 5).

Good luck on finals!

Exam 4 has been rescheduled for Monday. Check below on what it will cover.

Exam 5 will be given during finals week.

Home, 4/17

Exam 4 is scheduled for Friday. It will cover sections 4.1, 4.3, 4.4 and 4.5. Check out the following problems on the sample exams:

Exam 4: 11, 12
Exam 5: 3-6

Note that since the problems from the material that we are working on are fairly long, there will be few problems on the exam.

Homework from  sections 4.3 and 4.4 is due on Monday.

Yuck! Exam 3 turned out terribly! I am not quite sure what the reasons are, but you may redo the entire exam at home for up to 15 extra points, to be turned in on Wednesday. If you haven't already, get a new copy of the exam from me next week.

We'll discuss homework from 4.1 on Monday.

Home, 4/3

Exam 3 is scheduled for Wednesday. It will cover section 2.8, 3.1-3.3, 3.5 and 3.7. Check out the following relevant problems on sample exams:

Exam 3: 3-9
Exam 4: 1-10

Solutions to all the homeworks that have been returned to you are posted on Canvas. If I forget to post it in the future, remind me.

We will discuss homework in 3.7 on Monday, and the write-ups will be due on Tuesday.

Exam 2 turned out poorly, partly reflecting not getting back homework from 2.7 ahead of the exam, but the extra points I offered should help that.

Homework from 3.1 and 3.2 will be due on Tuesday, since we still have some problems in 3.2 to look over on Monday. Ah, those confounded logarithms!

Expect exam 3 during the week of 4/6.

Home, 3/13

After exam 2, we may relax a little - after all, it's spring break. We'll work on new sections, starting with 2.8 when we return.

Have a differentiable spring break (that is, one that will differentiate itself from others)!

Home, 3/6

Well, we got canceled again this week, so we will pick up where we left off. We will discuss homework in sections 2.5 and 2.6 on Monday, so their write-ups will be due on Tuesday.

Exam 2 is scheduled for next week on Friday, 3/13 (after it, go to spring break worry-free!). It will cover sections 2.2-2.7. For some problems, check out the following sample exams:

Exam 2: all except 11ac
Exam 3: problems 1, 2, 10

Home, 2/27

We will finish discussing homework in section 2.4 on Monday, so the write-ups for 2.3 and 2.4 will be due on Tuesday.

Let's start thinking about exam 2: we'll have it week after next. More details on what it will cover in next week's announcement...

Guess what? I had your homeworks for 2.1 and 2.2 graded, but forgot to return them to you. Sorry: you'll just have to wait until Monday.

Home, 2/22

Hope everyone had a good rest and has been studying. We will continue as though it were last week, that is, discuss homework in 2.2 on Monday and have it due on Tuesday.

Exam 1 didn't turn out so well (see "scores and docs"). I can see people have been studying, but it appears everyone needs some more practice with a wide variety of problems. There is an especially strong correlation between missing classes and getting a poor grade on the exam.

Since the university is closed today, we will continue on Tuesday (assuming we are open) with discussion of homework in 2.2, with the write-ups due on Wednesday.

Free tutoring information has been updated for this semester.

Home, 2/6

Exam 1, covering sections 1.3-1.6 and 2.1 is scheduled for Wednesday. Check out the sample exams on the page "scores and docs". Look at

exam 1, all problems
exam 2: problems 10a, 11

While our exam will not be a copy of this exam with numbers changed, the problems on the sample exams are representative of what types of problems may come up on the exam, so you are strongly urged to try to do a sample exam. (Also, try timing yourself to see if you can do it in 50 minutes.)

On Monday, we will discuss homework in section 2.1, which will be due on Tuesday.

Home, 1/30

Sorry I forgot to update the page last week. We will discuss homework in 1.6 on Monday, with write-ups (along with 1.5) due later next week.

Solutions of returned homeworks may be found on Canvas (I cannot post them on a publicly available website, as the publishers request).

I expect our first exam to be week after next.

Home, 1/16

Write-ups for sections 1.1 and 1.3 are due on Tuesday.

Make sure that you have the correct textbook: it is "Essential Calculus: early transcendentals, 2nd edition" - I omitted the early transcendentals on the original syllabus.

Welcome to the course!  Look around to familiarize yourself with the layout of these webpages.  Note that the most important links at right are highlighted.  All documents (homework assignment, solutions to exams, etc.) can be found at the "scores and documents" page. Links to often-used documents also appear in the menu bar at right.

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.
