Your final is scheduled for Tuesday, 12/17/2013 at 7:45am. We will begin reviewing for the Final on Wednesday, 12/11/2013, but you can get started reviewing now. Here’s an updated layout for the Final Exam, complete with links to help you study. Remember, the final will be worth anywhere from 10-20% of your grade and will be graded using a bell curve – meaning you could earn a score over 100%.
Part I: Formulas
- Covers Chapter 2-7
- NO CALC, 20 Questions, 20 Minutes = 25% of Final
- This is only a sample of the formula chart you will receive based on past years. Please ignore marked questions (from Ch 8).
- There will be an emphasis on small, but important results that you should recall from the course.
- I strongly recommend flash cards to cover material from Ch 2-7 (use your NOTES not your BOOK).
- I could ask about the value of a certain limit, the name of a certain theorem, the derivative/integral of a simple function, important trig identities we’ve discussed, etc…
- Feel free to ask if a formula is important or not important to study for the Final
Part II: Multiple Choice
- Covers Chapter 7
- NO CALC, 20 Questions, 40 Minutes = 25% of Final
- This is a sample test that corresponds to the actual final. It will not be collected or graded.
- This portion of the test emphasizes your mastery of computations from Chapter 7 (no word problems).
- You should know how to find the derivative of an inverse.
- You should know the derivatives of exponential and logarithmic functions well.
- You should know the integrals of exponential functions (but not integrals of log functions…that’s Ch 8).
- You should know the integrals of rational functions that lead to log functions (∫dx/x = ln |x| + C)
- You should know the derivatives of inverse trig functions
- You should know the integrals of rational/radical functions that lead to inverse trig functions
- You should know L’Hopital’s Rule very well
Part III: AP Free Response
- Covers Chapter 3-6
- YES CALC, 3 Questions, 45 Minutes = 50% of Final
- These will be AP-style problems modeled from actual past year AP questions.
- I will only test you on FR topics that we have already covered.
- I’m providing past year problems and rubrics from topic areas you may see on the Final.
- There are several areas to study, but I will only pick 3 FR questions for your actual Final. Please only worry about the problems that I’m providing solutions for.
