# Math 241 - Final Exam

## Tuesday, May 11th, 2:45-4:45, Ayres 314

### Basic Information

• The final is comprehensive; it covers Chapter 9 - Chapter 13.
• It will consist of about 15 questions, with about 3 questions from each chapter. There may be extra emphasis on Chapter 13 and less emphasis on Chapter 9.
• It will focus on the main ideas of each chapter.
• Most of the problems will be based on (1) previous exams, (2) quizzes and (3) homework.
• Any problem-type assigned as homework is fair-game for the exam.

### Preparation Strategy

• Predict what the exam will cover: review previous exams and chapters and determine what the main 3 or 4 topics or techniques are. Read the Chapter summaries.
• Redo previous exams. Work additional problems in areas of weakness or concern.
• Go over the Chapter Review for each chapter. Pick several problems for a mock-final.
• Review all the quizzes and homework to double-check that you have all the major ideas down.
• Work through practic problems.
• If you have questions, ask someone (Dr. Collins, classmates, tutor, etc.)
• Study hard before the exam, but rest the night before.
• Schedule your departure from campus well after the exam to remove time pressure.
