 Here is some information about final exam and course grades. Exam warning The final exam for sections 21, 22, & 23 will be given on Thursday, May 5 from 4 to 7 PM. The exam location is Hickman 138. The lecturer met again on Sunday, May 1, from 6 PM to 8 PM in Hickman 216 and had students go to the board and work on problems from old final exams which are related to the second half of the course. Helpful comments will be offered. Last Sunday, most of these problems related to the first half of the course were discussed. This Sunday, most of these problems related to the second half of the course were discussed. Mr. Jin, the recitation instructor, will hold a review session from 6 to 8 PM on Tuesday, May 3, in RAB 001, the usual classroom.

Official review problems for the final exam Here are the official review problems for the final exam, but only for the segment of the course since the second exam. Short answers to these problems are available.
Students should look at past collections of review problems and past exams distributed this semester.
4/25/2005
Official formula sheet for the final exam A copy of this sheet will be included with the exam. Students should familiarize themselves with it. Note that students who need to consult the formula sheet extensively during the exam usually do not know the material very well and tend to do poorly on exams.
Also, students should bring with them a graphing calculator which cannot do symbolic manipulation. The general instructions for the course state:
 ... you may not use calculators with QWERTY keypads or symbolic manipulation capabilities. In particular, the TI-89, the TI-89 Titanium, the TI-92 and the Voyage 200 will not be allowed on any exam.

The second exam A version of the second exam, in a more compact format. 4/12/2005
Spring 1999 second exam The second exam given by this instructor in a spring 1999 version of Math 135. The textbook was different, and so was the order of the topics. All problems on this exam would be appropriate in the current version of the course, but some topics, such as l'Hopital's rule, were not covered in the previous version of the course.
Note Problems 5c and 6 from the first exam for spring 1999 would now be appropriate for examination in this course.
3/29/2005
Fall 1998 second exam The second exam given by this instructor in a fall 1999 version of Math 135. The textbook was different, and so was the order of the topics. All problems on this exam would be appropriate in the current version of the course, but some topics, such as l'Hopital's rule, were not covered in the previous version of the course.
Detailed answers are available. I think this exam was difficult and long.
Note Problems 5c and 6 from the first exam for fall 1998 would now be appropriate for examination in this course.

The first exam A version of the first exam, in a more compact format. Also, the irritating error about the domain in problem 7 has been corrected. 2/24/2005
Spring 1999 first exam The first exam given by this instructor in a spring 1999 version of Math 135. The textbook was different, and so was the order of the topics. Therefore problems 5c and 6 would not be appropriate for the first exam in this course. All other problems would be appropriate for this course.

Fall 1998 first exam The first exam given by this instructor in a fall 1998 version of Math 135. The textbook was different, and so was the order of the topics. Therefore problems 5c and 6 would not be appropriate for the first exam in this course, although the exam as given was too long. All other problems would be appropriate for this course.

Old Math 135 material

Here is a link to material from the previous semester (fall 2004).
The current instructor taught Math 135 several times in the past, most recently in the spring 1999 semester. Please realize that the textbook was different and the syllabus was somewhat different. With those cautions, here are links to some previous Math 135 course pages, each of which has links in turn to exams with answers, etc.:
