Math 1101, Calculus I
(2:15-2:20 PM MWF and 2-3:40 PM Tu, Sci 3510)


Final results: Here are the solutions to the final exam and here are the grades.  Note I can only post your grade by the last 4 digits of your student id if you gave me permission to do so. If your student id is missing from the list, then you didn't give me permission to post your grade.

Practice exam:
Here is my Calc I final from last semester.  You may use it to get a feel for how well prepared you are for our final.  Try taking this exam without using your textbook, notes, and calculator.  You may even try to time yourself (the final is 2 hours).  Don't use this exam to try to second guess what may be on the final and what may not.  Use it identify weaknesses in your knowledge, then make sure you fill those gaps.  Here are the solutions.  (Note that an earlier version of the solutions posted here had the wrong solution.  Actually, it was the right solution to a different problem.) Use these to check your own work on the exam.  I strongly recommend against reading my solutions without attempting the problems on your own first.  You'll get very little out of this.

If you want more practice problems, check out my website for Math 1101 fall 2005.  It has a practice final (no solutions) and several midterm exams with solutions.

Final exam: The final exam for this class will be at 8:30-10:30 on Wed, May 10 in the usual class room.  You will be allowed a 5.5 in x 8.5 in (both sides) handwritten cheat sheet.  If you prefer, you may use one side of a lettersize sheet (8.5 in x 11 in).

Office hours:
Syllabus: Here is the syllabus.

TA: Brian Holte (e-mail: holt0350)

Help sessions: Brian will hold help sessions 7-8 PM Mon and Wed in the usual classroom.  While these are optional, I'd like to encourage everyone to attend at least one of the two each week.  Come prepared with a question to ask Brian.

Mistakes that lose students many points on exams:
Prof. Eric Schechter compiled a list of some of the most common errors that students make on assignments. While some of the material is beyond the level of this course, I highly recommend reading this before every exam.

Online homework:
Here is a link to webwork.  You will need your user name and password to login.  Your username is the same as your UMM e-mail username.  If you are logging in for the first time, your password is your student ID.  You should change this as soon as convenient.  Webwork assignments close at midnight on the due date.

Mathematica:
Mathematica is available on the computers in Sci 3510 and Sci 2530.  Sci 3510 is open 7:30 AM -9 PM daily and Sci 2530 is open as long as the Science building is open, which is 7:30 AM - midnight M-F and 11 AM - midnight on weekends.  You are free to use either room as long as there is no class in there.  You are certainly not required to have Mathematica for your own computer.  If you want to have it anyway, a student edition is available from Wolfram for $139.95.  This is identical in features to the full version.  (The full version costs $1880-$3135 depending on the operating system for those not lucky enough to have a student ID.)  You can also buy a license limited to a semester for $44.95 or a year for $69.95.

You may find it useful to download the free MathReader for your own computer.  It will let you read notebook files, but it won't let you run any computation.

Notebook files:
Computer accounts on cda.morris.umn.edu: You may want to use an account on cda.morris.umn.edu to store your Mathematica files. This is the university's general purpose server and is accessible from any computer connected to the internet. This would allow you to have access to your files wherever you are, on or off campus. It runs Unix, but you certainly don't have to know Unix to be able to use it for basic file storage. PCs on campus can connect to it using WinSCP, Macs can connect to it using Fetch. (You could of course use a different scp client if you prefer.) In fact, you already have an account set up on this computer, you just have to activate it by setting a password, which is done by contacting Computing Services.

Homework:
There are three types of homework.  HW labeled Webwork is to be completed and submitted online by midnight on the given deadline.  It is submitted electronically only.  It is a good idea to have the answers written down for your own record, but you do not need to submit a hard copy.  HW labaled Turn in is to be written up neatly on paper and submitted in the envelope on the board next to my office by 5 PM on the given deadline.  HW labeled Prepare for quiz is tested in the form of quizzes.  You are given a quiz which consists of a problem(s) taken directly from this HW in class on the day of the deadline.  It is a good idea to write up the answers on paper neatly for your own records, but you do not neet to submit anything other than the quiz to me.

A good way to prepare for the exam is to do the review problems at the end of Ch. 1 in the text (p. 77-79). Pay particular attention to the Concept Check and the True/False Quiz. You don't need to turn any of these in, but I'll be happy to answer questions about them in office hours.

Webwork I have posted HW set 36 on webwork.  This is an optional assigment.  It will not be counted toward your grade.  I recommend that you complete this assignment in order to solidify what we learned about integration in class this week.  But if you have a better way to sharpen your skills about integration, you don't have to do these problems.
