Exam Review

General Rules for the Uniform Exams and Final

  • You are allowed one (and only one) 3 by 5 note card, with anything you wish written on both sides.
  • No other notes or books are allowed at the exams. If you bring other materials for the purpose of last minute study, they must be placed out of view completely under your seat before the exam begins.
  • You must have your programmable graphing calculator with you, with angular measure set to radian mode.

Suggested Exam Study Tactics

  • Look over your old homework assignments, including the group homework, and see if you can write solutions to the exercises that caused you the most trouble without looking at your previous solutions. If there are certain types of exercises you never figured out or still cannot do, get help from your instructor, other students, or the Math Lab.
  • Do a few of the unassigned review exercises at the end of each chapter.
  • For each section of the text that will be covered on the exam, write a paragraph in your own words that describes the main ideas in the section, why these ideas are important, and how you can use the ideas to solve problems. (For the final exam, you may wish to do this only for the sections covered since the second uniform exam, and read the paragraphs you wrote when studying for the two uniform exams.)
  • Read through the review sheet for the exam, and make sure you understand each of the topics and have each of the skills described on that sheet.
  • Think carefully about what you want to write on your one note card.
  • Try one or more of the past Math 115 exams.
