No notes are allowed. A graphing calculator is expected. A scientific calculator (with a "STO" button), or better, is required.

You may be required to state the Mean Value Theorem (Theorem 1.8), the Intermediate Value Theorem (Theorem 1.11), Taylor's Theorem (Theorem 1.14), and/or the Fixed Point Theorem (Theorem 2.4).

You may be asked to derive Newton's method, and/or the Secant Method, graphically. The exam will include problems similar to homework problems.

You may be required to do a few steps of Bisection Method or the Secant Method by hand on your calculator.

You may be required to to several steps of fixed point iteration (including Newton's Method) on your calculator using the "STO" button.

Be able to describe the advantages and drawbacks of each method.

The exam will cover sections 1.1-1.3, and 2.1-2.4 in the textbook, as well as Project 1.

**Exam 2** is scheduled for Monday, April 13 (Week 13).

You may not use cell phones or any internet-connected device at the exam.

The **Final Exam** is sceduled for Thursday, May 7 from 3:00 to 5:00.
You can take the exam early, on Monday, May 4 at 10:00 am. in AMB 207. Send me email if you plan to take it early.
