FINAL EXAM GUIDE:

Exam dates:

MATH 226.14: December 15, 8:00 - 10:30, in TH 326.

What to bring: pencil or pen, calculator, scratch paper. No mobile devices or computers. Open notes exam.

There will be 8 problems addressing eight course learning outcomes:

  1. Evaluate a variety of limits, including limits at infinity, one-sided limits, and limits of indeterminate forms. Students should also be able to identify discontinuities in functions presented algebraically or graphically.
  2. Apply the definition of derivative to calculate and estimate derivatives from formulas, graphs, or data.
  3. Differentiate sums, products and quotients of composite polynomial, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
  4. Discuss the conceptual relations among derivatives, rates of change, and tangent lines in the context of an applied example.
  5. Use asymptotes, first and second derivatives to graph functions.
  6. Solve applied problems using calculus and justify answers.
  7. Estimate a definite integral with a Riemann sum.
  8. Evaluate a simple definite integral using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
These problems will be similar to homework problems. Consider homework problems and similar problems in the textbook as review problems for the final.
