Math 122 Spring 2016 Final Exam Notes

What to Bring:

Bring lots of pencils, pens, erasers, a watch, a ruler, and your student ID. Do not bring scrap paper as it will be provided. You will be given a copy of the standard formula sheet.

Calculators are not permitted. Cell phones, music players and other electronic devices must be put away during the exam and may not be used as clocks. Also, packs and bags must be placed at the front of the room during the exam, so avoid bringing valuables with you to the exam.

Extra Practice:

The final exam is comprehensive, and so may include any material covered since the first day of the course.

You must of course know your basic derivative and antiderivative rules. In addition to reviewing your class notes, quizzes, tests, and previously assigned homework, you should prepare by solving lots and lots of extra problems. Listed below are some old exams and additional practice problems. Note, however, that your exam may be different in both format and content. These old exams are intended to give you extra practice on a broad range of problems. They are not meant to suggest in any way that your final exam will necessarily be similar. Also, beginning this semester a new comprehensive treatment of Taylor and Maclaurin polynomials was included in the course and the old final exams listed below do not cover that material to the same degree as on your upcoming final. As such, be sure to review the material in the supplementary notes on Taylor series.

  1. Fall 2009 Final Exam (omit questions 1, 2(a), 11(b)) ( solutions)
  2. Fall 2008 Final Exam(omit questions 1, 9(b) & 10(a)) ( solutions)
  3. Spring 2008 Final Exam (omit questions 1, 9(a); note that calculators were permitted back in 2008) ( solutions)
  4. practice problems (omit problems 1-6, 12, 19, 35-37, 49, 53(b), 54-56, 59-62, and note that there is a typo in the answers: the answer for 52(c) should be (-1/2)ln|cos(2x)|+C). Many of these problems are somewhat more challenging than the standard homework but serve as excellent practice for the final exam (thanks to Dr.V. Watts for these.)
