Math 120 Final Exam Review Checklist The nal exam in Math 120 is comprehensive You need to understand all the major concepts from the course In order to be ready for the nal exam7 you are expected to 1 Work through several of the old nal exams and come to me or the math study center when you 2 encounter dif culties Several means 5 but the more the better Look back through the homework and lectures to get an idea of the key concepts To help you with the second point above7 l have gone through the homework and listed the classic problems from each chapter that illustrate the main concepts involved Read through these problems and try to remember how you did them If you nd a few problems that were especially hard for you7 then go back and review more homework problems from that section and visit the math study center for help H E0 00 4 U 03 5 00 H H H D Chapters 1 and 2 Speed7 rates7 distance formula 187 247 26 Chapters 3 and 4 Circle7 linear models7 intersections 347 377 4 67 48

the vertical line test for seeing if a graph corresponds to a function 5 Chapter 6 Graphical Analysis 0 We discussed what it means for a function to be positive and negative We also discussed what it means for a function to be increasing and decreasing o A circle is not a function but we can split it up into two function which we called the upper and lower semicircles If h k is the center of the circle and r is the radius then these functions are given by The upper semicircle y k 4 M 7 z 7 h The lower semicircle y k 7 4 r2 7 z 7 h2 0 Understand how multipart functions work Specifically given

Autumn 2005 The final exam is cumulative It covers Chapters 1 23 That is it could include ANYTHING from this quarter The questions will force you to apply material from lecture the text and or the homework A good idea is to first review those topics which you struggled with this quarter It is also a good idea to look at old exam questions from Taggart and Conroy which can be found at http wwwmathwashingtonedu m120testindexhtml The website includes review sheets for the material from Chapters 1 16 This review sheet discusses some of the key points from Chapters 17 23 1 Sinusoidal
