There will be at least one detailed graphing problem, requiring all the relevant computations with first and second derivatives. Graphing problem(s) will be worth at least 20% of the exam. There will NOT be a min/max word problem. This will be given as a takehome problem due at the beginning of the test period on Friday, May 2. This problem will be worth 20 percent of your exam. I reserve the right to ask one question (10 pts maximum) that requires you to do something you havent done in homework. That is, an original solution that you create during the exam.
