set is in two parts. First there are the sets listed below. These
problems are not to be handed in. You should definitely do the first
few problems and those marked by an asterisk (*). Some of the
problems on the exams will be modeled on these problems.
second part is a list of problems (listed by section) on webassign
which will be computer graded and count towards 10% of your final
The deadline for completing the online homework sets are a
few weeks after the exam that will test those topics (except for the
final where the deadline is the end of the course). DO NOT ASK FOR AN
EXTENSION. You must do the homework problems before they are
examined. This should be obvious. If you have not done the homework
before it is due you are not using the homework effectively.

1.3 - 2.7
You will not
have to prove any theorems!! However there will be problems which
depend on understanding the statements of
(i) The intermediate
value theorem (Theorem 9 page 52)
(ii) A function that has
a derivative is continuous (theorem 4 page 88)
expected to be able to apply the rules for limits and the derivative,
There will be a related rates problem. There will be problems on the
exam that require some or all of the above. There will be multiple

exam will cover material from the last exam-->3.7
list of topics that will be on the exam:There will be a problem on
Linear approximation and Differentials e.g. Problems of type 11-14 or
problems of type 17-18 page 139. There may be a problem on the Mean
value theorem, Page 154, e.g. Problems 9-12 Page 157. A problem on
how the derivative effects the shape of a curve i.e sections 3.3-3.4.
There will be an Optimization problem (section 3.5), and questions on
anti derivatives (section 3.7)
