Math 1571H Honors Calculus Fall Semester 2001

Exam on Methods of Differentiation

This exam will be held on Thursday October 25, in the recitation. This exam is given on a pass-fail basis and you must do at least 6 of the 8 problems correctly to pass. (That also is incorrectly stated on the schedule, where it says there will be 10 questions and you have to do at least 8). There is no partial credit. You may take the exam several times, but you must pass this exam to pass the course. Students who pass this exam on the first try will have 5 points added to their grade on the first mid-term exam. The material to be examined is sections 3.1-3.6 of Simmons, together with questions like Extra Questions 1-7 on Assignment 6. In each question you will simply have to differentiate a function, and you will not be asked things like theoretical properties of limits. No calculators will be allowed on the exam.
There will be no quiz on October 25!
