Useful Information for Midterm Exam Number 1:

As announced in the syllabus, Midterm Exam Number 1 will be administered 6:30-8:30 pm on Thursday, October 19, for all students in MA124 A1, A2, and A3. You will have a total of 90 minutes to work on the exam questions. Please make sure that you bring your BU student ID card.

Midterm Exam Number 1 will cover Sections 6.1--6.5, 6.7, 6.9, 7.1--7.5, and 7.8. You are responsible for all of the homework, discussion, and quiz problems from these sections. Midterm Exam Number 1 is closed books, no crib sheets or notes, no calculators.

There will be eight problems, each worth between 10 and 15 points. Of these eight, four will be on techniques of integration, and four will be on applications of integrals. To give you a sample of the types of problems that will be on the midterm, we provide two items below: First, there is a link to click on for the pdf file with (38) Review Problems for Techniques of Integration. Second, there is a list of Review Problems for Applications of Integration. Together, these two items constitute the Sample Midterm Exam.

Please feel free to ask any of the MA 124 faculty or teaching fellows questions about these problems or their solutions.

The room assignments for Midterm Exam Number 1 are based on the number (B1,B2, ...) of your discussion section. You must go to the room assigned to the discussion section for which you are registered:

(Note that Chapters 6.6, 6.8, 6.10, 7.6 were omitted, and 7.7 will only be commented upon briefly in lectures during the week of Oct 16. Hence, this material will not be on the midterm.)
