Test 1 Study Guide: 7.1, 7.2, 7.4, 7.5, and 7.6 and related material from prior classes

It is time for our first test in order to be sure that everyone reviews and understand some of the fundamental concepts.

At the Test

  • NO calculators will be allowed.
  • I'll bring scratch paper. Ask me if you need more.
  • I will bring a copy of the Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Derivative Review for you to use with your test.
  • In addition, you may make yourself reference notes on the small card I hand out (additional cards are on my door if you need to rewrite it). The reference card must be handwritten. Think of the card as a way to include some important examples or concepts that you aren't as comfortable with. You won't have room for everything, and you should try to internalize as much as you can.
  • You may have out food, hydration, ear plugs, or similar if they will help you (however any ear plugs must be stand alone--no cell phone, internet or other technological connections)
  • There will be two types of questions on the test (see below) that most of the questions will fall under, and your grade will be based on the quality of your responses in a timed environment. All tests must be turned in when class ends.

    What to Study

  • This test will cover sections 7.1, 7.2, 7.4, 7.5, and 7.6 and related material from prior classes.
  • Integrals and content will be very similar (or the same!) as those you have seen before.
  • Review class notes, homework, quizzes, group work, and clicker questions as well as: Integrals from Calculus I and Analytic Geometry such as the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus on a known derivative, splitting up a numerator into its sums...
    Material from prior classes related to algebraic, graphical, numeric and trigonometric perspectives, including graphs of common functions and their various limits (such as arcsin(x), arctan(x), cos(x), ex, ln(x), sin(x), tan(x), x2, and functions to negative powers...)
    partial fractions
    trig sub
    improper integrals
  • Most (but not all) of the exam will be phrased as one of two types of instructions as listed on the
    sample instructions

  • Solutions: Solutions to Group Work in Chapter 7
    Solutions to part 2 of Wiley practice are on ASULearn
    Wiley Test 1 Practice Problems (optional) including some new problems plus problems you have seen before, with solutions and answers available there.
  • class highlights page which shows our day-to-day activities
  • class review, more review
  • Be careful of algebra missteps
  • Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Derivative Review (a copy will be stapled to your test)
