Make arrangements for these exam times.  Only documented medical/personal reasons will allow for a make-up. No calculators or cheat sheets allowed!  Students with documented need for extra time will take exams on the same day starting at 5:00pm in OH407.

We will be checking ID's so bring yours.

Notes about Exam 1.  The first exam is given right at the beginning of the semester and it covers most of the material that was in your placement exam. This is intentional. Not only does it give you a 2 week review of the background material you need, it acts as another gauge to tell you whether or not you should possibly move to Calculus 1A.  If you fail the first exam we strongly recommend you move to a Calculus 1A section.  They meet at the same time and it's easy to change sections. the math dept administrative assistant will be happy to help you out.
