ALL OTHER DETAILS AS BELOW.
Zoom link and instructions will be on blackboard, under announcements.
It will cover all of chapters 1 and 2.1 to 2.2 in chapter 2. Topics: Functions, Limits and slopes of tangents.
NO CALCULATORS, NO HELP DURING TEST.
Problems will be similar (but not identical) to those we studied in class and in practice problems.
You must understand the methods and ideas , not just what to do in each step.
As usual you are expected to explain what you do in each step.
Please study all class notes and practice problems.
Please study also, as time permits, these old test problems with solutions:
IGNORE PROBLEMS USING SQUEEZE THEOREM.

FALL 2020 FINAL EXAM PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
Thanks to Prof. Nerolu.

IMPORTANT:Please also go to Journal under "Tools", click on "Create Entry" and upload an honor code affirmation statement as instructed there.
You MUST do this ASAP.

We will have polls during class, and they will count towards grade. Correct answers get credit.

Please read and try problems from these notes on basics of functions from 2018 and notes on transformations of functions from 2018 in preparation for first class.
