HERE ARE SOME RULES FOR THE FINAL EXAM.
- 0.) IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE UNIVERSITY HONOR CODE TO, IN ANY WAY, ASSIST ANOTHER PERSON IN THE COMPLETION OF THIS EXAM. IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE UNIVERSITY HONOR CODE TO HAVE ANOTHER STUDENT TAKE YOUR EXAM FOR YOU. PLEASE KEEP YOUR OWN WORK COVERED UP AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE DURING THE EXAM SO THAT OTHERS WILL NOT BE TEMPTED OR DISTRACTED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
- 1.) No notes, books, or classmates may be used as resources for this exam. YOU MAY USE A
CALCULATOR ON THIS EXAM.
- 2.) You may NOT use L'Hopital's Rule to compute limits on this exam.
- 3.) You may NOT use shortcuts from the textbook for finding limits to infinity.
- 4.) You need NOT MEMORIZE trigonometry identities. A short list of identities will be provided on the front cover of the exam.
- 5.) Using only a calculator to determine the value of limits will receive little or no credit.
- 6.) You will be graded on proper use of limit notation.
- 7.) Put units on answers where units are appropriate.
- 8.) Read directions to each problem carefully. Show all work for full credit. In most cases, a correct answer with no supporting work will NOT receive full credit. What you write down and how you write it are the most important means of your getting a good score on this exam. Neatness and organization are also important.
