Test 2 Study Guide: 8.1, 8.2, 8.4 (density only), 8.5 (work only), 9.1, 9.2 and 9.3, test 1 material and related material from prior classes

At the Test

  • NO calculators will be allowed.
  • I'll bring scratch paper. Ask me if you need more.
  • I will staple a copy of Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Derivative Review to your test.
  • In addition, you may make yourself reference notes on the small card I hand out (additional cards are on my door if you need to rewrite it). The reference card must be handwritten. Think of the card as a way to include some important examples or concepts that you aren't as comfortable with. You won't have room for everything, and you should try to internalize as much as you can.
  • You may have out food, hydration, ear plugs, or similar if they will help you (however any ear plugs must be stand alone--no cell phone, internet or other technological connections)
  • Your grade will be based on the quality of your responses in a timed environment. All tests must be turned in when class ends.

    Topics to Study

  • This test will cover sections 8.1, 8.2, 8.4 (density only), 8.5 (work only), 9.1, 9.2 and 9.3, as well as test 1 material useful in these sections and related material from prior classes.
  • class review
  • Questions will be very similar (or the same!) as those you have seen before from class notes, homework, quizzes 5, 6, 7, 8, group work, and clicker questions. Detailed solutions to part 2 of Wiley practice are on ASULearn and I'll post WileyPlus Online Test 2 Practice Problems (optional) including some new problems plus problems you have seen before, with solutions and answers available there.

  • algebra missteps
  • Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Derivative Review (a copy will be stapled to your test)
  • Class highlights page which shows our day-to-day activities
  • Review class notes, homework, quizzes, group work and clicker questions

    Test Instructions

  • Sample instructions and wording on the test includes: Work each problem showing all steps for partial credit. CIRCLE YOUR ANSWERS so I can find them.
    1. Show reasoning and work to solve for any lengths, areas or volumes, and set up and fill in with numbers but do NOT evaluate
    2. What integration technique could you successfully use here (but do NOT evaluate the integral - name the technique)
    3. Given the following sequences and series, determine if they converge or diverge and EXPLAIN or SHOW WORK documenting why your answer is correct. List the test you use and document why it works (for series, choose from geometric series, terms not going to 0, linearity, or integral test). If they converge, what value do they converge to, or what bounds can we give (do NOT simplify)?
    4. Explain what is wrong with the following statement...
    5. One of the four main educational goals at Appalachian is local to global perspectives, and it is also a theme in Calculus II. Name an instance in our class were local perspectives where important in understanding the global perspective, and specify what is local and what is global in your example.
