1322 Exam Schedule, Fall 2001
Exam 1 Wednesday September 19 6:30-8:30 PM Exam 2 Wednesday October 24 6:30-8:30 PM Exam 3 Monday November 19 6:30-8:30 PM FINAL EXAM Exam Period XXIV Friday,
3:30-5:30 PMThe material to be covered on each exam will be announced a few days before on the "Electronic Bulletin Board" on the main webpage of this syllabus.Note that the FINAL EXAM is near end of the College's final exam schedule and in the late afternoon rather than evening! I wish it were earlier in the week, but this schedule is created by the Dean's Office, not the Math Department.
Please make your end of semester travel reservations early; a conflicting travel reservation is not a valid excuse for missing the final. If your parents are making your travel reservations, be sure they know your exam schedule before they do it.
You should always bring your Washington University Photo ID Card to exams. You should also bring several pencils with erasers. Graphing calculators will be usually be allowed (but NOT any model which contains a Computer Algebra System (CAS)--for example, the TI-89, TI-92, HP-48 and HP-49). Use of a calculator with a built-in CAS during an exam will be viewed as an academic integrity violation. Any changes of policy will be announced before the exam.
You may have a single 3x5 notecard with any notes you like. Do not bring any "scratch paper." There should be sufficient space for your work on the exam booklet.
Math 1322 exams will be held in Cupples I, Room 199. This room is located off the landing halfway up the stairs to the second floor at the east end of the building. Do not attempt to use the "seat lookup" program that the students in the larger sections will be using.
They will consist of some combination of "multiple choice" and "show your work" ("free response") style questions. There will probably also be a few true/false questions.
I will grade the exams by hand myself and post the scores (in an Excel spreadsheet) in the "Record of Scores" section of the syllabus when they are done. (Do not try to find your scores with the "score lookup" link that students in the regular sections will be using.). This means that the grading will not be as quick as the "machine grading" that does most of the work in the regular sections.
I will return the exams in class after they're graded.
Legitimate excuses for missing an exam (such as verified illness or serious family emergencies) in all calculus courses must be approved by Professor Jack Shapiro (Cupples I, 107B, 314-935-6787), preferably in advance. Having one person approve excused absences for all sections of all the calculus courses helps to assure that all students receive uniform treatment. Unexcused absences from any exam receive a score of "0".
If you receive an excused absence from Professor Shapiro for one of the in-semester exams, you will not take a make-up exam. Instead, a statistical formula called "multiple regression" will be used at the end of the semester to estimate your missing score based on your performance on the other three exams. (The formula is complicated, but it takes into account the average class score on each exam and how far above or below the average you were on each exam you did take. Therefore, you're not penalized if the exam you missed was one on which other students had high scores.)
Students who miss the final with an excuse from Professor Shapiro will need to take a make-up final at another time, probably early in the Spring semester.
I wasn't able to find many copies of recent Math 1322 Exams to make available for your use. However, the regular Math 132 exams can certainly be of some help to use in reviewing.
Note: These online files are maintained by the Math Department and Olin Library. Some exams are available with solutions, some without, some both ways. In setting up this webpage, we have included all the exams/solutions we have available for recent semesters.
Copies of some old exams are also available at the Reserve Desk on Level 2 of Olin Library. Any exams at the Reserve Desk older than Fall 1997 (when we began using the current textbook) may not be as useful as study aids.
