Welcome to Calculus 1. The
purpose of this page is to make certain resources available
and keep you

up to date with everything
going on in the course.

** REMINDER: If you're having trouble with the
course, there are video
clips available

on
which many typical problems are presented and explained. It's
worth taking a look if you

feel
the need.

FINAL EXAM
INFORMATION:

Our final exam, which is required
for everyone, will be held on Thursday, May 2 from
11:30 AM - 2:30 PM in Low 3051.

Prof. Schmidt will hold office
hours on Monday, April 29 from 1 - 2 PM in Eaton 408.
Cassandra will hold office hours on Monday, April 29 from 3
- 4 PM and Tuesday, April 30 from 4:30 - 5:30 PM to return
exam #4 and solutions. She will also hold office hours for
final exam review on Wednesday, May 1 from 3:30 - 5:30 PM.

No books, notes, calculators or other electronic devices are permitted in the exam. All cell phones are to be turned off and stored so they are inaccessible.

All of the problems on the final exam will be similar to
homework problems, and many will be similar to problems from our
first four exams.

The final exam will consist of three parts:

The first part will consist of 8 problems worth 5 points
each. You will have to solve all of these problems.

The
second part will consist of 5 problems worth 11 points each.
You will have to solve 4 of these 5 problems.

You will
need to indicate on the front of the exam which problem you
do not want graded.

The
third part will consist of 10 skills problems. Only the best
8 problems will be graded. These problems will be

graded on a no partial credit basis and will contribute 16
points to the final exam.

Thus, the final exam is worth 100 points.

Resources for Calculus Skills Problem Set:

The Calculus Skills Problem
Set is a set of problems designed to test your ability to
carry out the basic computations

from Calculus accurately.
Throughout the semester you will be tested (during quizzes and
the final exam) on

algorithmically generated
versions of these problems.

These problems will always be graded with no partial credit.

The Calculus Skills
home page is here.
This page contains much important information

pertaining to the Calculus skills problem set,
including rules pertaining to how the problems will be graded

and academic integrity guidelines. It also
contains a list of all the calculus skills problems and resources for practicing

different versions of them.
