# Exams

There will be two regular exams, each covering half of the material of the course. These will be based on the homework, but with new problems.

For an exam, you may use your notes, so you may refer to your homework assignments if you did them. However, you may not use your book or anything else not written by you. You certainly should not talk to other people! Calculators are allowed, although you shouldn't really need them; however, a graphing a calculator may help with extra credit problems.

The first exam is on November 3 Thursday, to prepare for the midterm grades that come out in the next week.

• Date taken: November 3 Thursday.
• Lectures covered: October 6 through November 1.
• Sections of the official textbook: §§3-1&3-2, §3-5, §3-7, §§4-3–4-6, §§5-1–5-6.
• Chapters of Calculus Made Easy: §I, §§III–XIII.
• Review questions:

The final exam will be based on college-wide standard requirements, so it may be different in style from the other exams. It will be on December 15 Thursday, the last day of class; you will need to give me written permission then if you want me to give your grade by email.

If you will miss an exam, then tell me as soon as you know.
