What is it?  Handed out or posted 

A version of the final exam  Here is a version of the final exam in a somewhat more compact
form.
Here is a
discussion of the grades and grading. There are details of
partial credit assignment. There are no solutions available for
this exam. Here is a very brief discussion of how course grades were determined.  5/12/2006 
Review problems for the final exam  These problems are mostly from past exams in this course. Answers are available. A correction
was made today (4/28/2006) thanks to Mr. Walawalkar. Another
correction was made today (5/4/2006) thanks to Professor Cook and one
of his students.
There may be too much review material, especially if you look at our old review material and the exams already given. Here is a link to a real 251 exam written and given by Professor Ferry. I think the exam has appropriate length and difficulty. The final exam will be cumulative, covering all of the material in the course. There will be slightly more emphasis on material discussed since the last exam. Again, no calculators or notes or material other than the distributed formula sheet may be used during the exam.  4/23/2006 
Draft formula sheet for the final exam  Again, if you have comments, corrections, or suggested additions please send email. I sincerely tried to include formulas which I believe would be useful on the exam.  4/23/2006 
Answers to the second exam  Here are answers to the second exam. Please let me know if you have
comments or corrections. A misprint in the answer to 8a) has been corrected (4/14), and I am sorry that I do not know the name of the student who advised me about the error. Here is a discussion of the grades and grading. There are details of partial credit assignment. Comments and complaints about the grading should be directed to the lecturer.  4/11/2006 
The second exam  Here is one version of the second exam, in a somewhat more compact format. The possibly confusing dV in the second problem has been changed to dA. Realize please, that three people, with total IQ well above 250, proofread the exam. I'm sorry. The formula sheet had no changes from the draft version.  4/11/2006 
Review problems for the second exam  These problems are mostly from past exams in
the course. There's information what the exam will
cover (up to and including lecture 20, which is section 16.3 of the
text with some sections listed in the syllabus omitted), and some exam
rules. Do you want to be famous? Each letter of the alphabet (except for Y and Z) has been given a problem. Contribute to the general welfare by sending me a solution for some problems. Here are the student solutions so far.  3/28/2006 
Draft formula sheet for the second exam  If you have comments, corrections, or suggested additions please send email. I sincerely tried to include formulas which I believe would be useful on the exam. Adding much other information would likely reduce the utility of the formula sheet, and perhaps what's on it is already too much.  3/28/2006 
Information about the third Maple assignment  The third Maple
assignment is here and
information to help you with it is here. Students who are registered for the course as of Saturday morning, March 25, will get information necessary for this Maple assignment. If you have not gotten the information and you believe you should have, please send me email. This assignment will be worth 20 points.  3/25/2006 
The third group of workshop problems  Students should write solutions and hand in their
work at the next recitation on March 22. Their efforts will be judged
both for presentation and mathematical correctness. Please see here for more information about what we
expect, and here for information about
grading. Students in sections 5, 6, and 7, taught by Mr. Ilinca, should hand in solutions to problem 5, and may hand in solutions to problem 3 for extra credit. Students in sections 8, 9, and 10, taught by Mr. Zarechnak, should hand in solutions to problem 3.  3/9/2006 
Answers to the first exam  Here are answers to the first exam. Please let me know if you have
comments or corrections. Small corrections to the answers for
problems 4 and 8 have been made
due to Mr. Walawalkar and Mr. Sadakh and I thank them for this. Two
more "misprints" (small errors?) were detected by L. Pudwell, the head TA for the course, and I
thank her additionally. Here is a discussion of the grades and grading. There are details of partial credit assignment, and a small forecast about a problem on the second exam.  2/28/2006 
The first exam  Here is one version of the first exam, in a somewhat more compact format. The annoying misprint in the last problem (6 should have been 5) is corrected. Four instructors who proofread the exam didn't see this, but at least three students taking the exam found it.  2/28/2006 
The second group of workshop problems  Students should write solutions to problem #4 and hand in their work at recitation. Their efforts will be judged both for presentation and mathematical correctness. Please see here for more information about what we expect, and here for information about grading.  2/15/2006 
Review problems for the first exam  These problems are mostly from past exams in
the course. There's information what the exam will
cover (up to and including lecture 9, which is section 14.6 of the
text), and some exam rules. Do you want to be famous? Each letter of the alphabet (except for Y and Z) has been given a problem (in several cases letters share a long problem). Contribute to the general welfare by sending me a solution for the problem whose letter begins your last name. Here are the solutions so far.  2/15/2006 
Revised formula sheet for the first exam  The a draft formula sheet for the first exam had two
errors. One was noticed during the exam and mentioned. Another was not
noticed, and several students who depended on the formula sheet used
the mistaken equation. It has been fixed here. In the future, please
do look at the draft. Written about the draft If you have comments, corrections, or suggested additions please send email. I sincerely tried to include formulas which I believe would be useful on the exam. Adding much other information would likely reduce the utility of the formula sheet, and perhaps what's on it is already too much.  2/15/2006 
Comments on grading Maple and workshops  Here is some discussion about grading the first Maple assignment and the workshop problems.  2/15/2006 
Data about some functions  Some data about several functions and their first derivatives was handed out in class on February 14 and discussed so that the class could learn about versions of the chain rule. More information is available in the course diary.  2/14/2006 
Information about the second Maple assignment  The second Maple
assignment is here and
information to help you with it is here. Students who are registered for the course as of Sunday evening, February 5, will get information necessary for this Maple assignment. If you have not gotten the information and you believe you should have, please send me email.  2/7/2006 
The first group of workshop problems  Students should write solutions to problem #3 and hand in their work at recitation. Their efforts will be judged both for presentation and mathematical correctness. Please see here for more information about what we expect.  2/2/2006 
Information about the first Maple assignment  The first Maple
assignment is here and
information to help you with it is here. Students who have both filled out the student information form and who are registered for the course as of Monday evening, January 23, will get information necessary for this Maple assignment.
