Math 3, Introduction to Calculus (Winter 2009)

Syllabus and Homework Assignments


  • Natasha Komarov will be holding office hours in Room 218 Kemeny Hall on Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00.
  • The final exam will be cumulative. That is, approximately half the exam will cover material from before the second midterm and half from after the second midterm. Professor Arkowitz will be glad to meet with students individually or in small groups to answer questions and go over problems. Just send an e-mail giving several days and times that you are available to meet.
  • The final exam will take place on March 13 from 8:00 to 11:00 am in Kemeny 008. The exam will not be given earlier to accomodate travel plans. For anyone who has a legitimate reason for not taking the exam at the assigned time, the exam will be given after the assigned time.
  • Here is a practice final exam. This exam covers several topics that we have not covered (arc length, centroids, trapezoid rule, linearization and Newton's and Euler's methods) and has not covered several of the topics that we have covered (volumes, optimization, implicit differentiation, logarithms and exponentials, L'Hospital's Rule). Note that a solution to an initial valued problem is just a solution to the given differential equation. We do not claim that this exam will resemble our exam in format, difficulty, length or content.
  • Here are the Solutions to the Second Midterm Exam.
