*****
This assignment isn't actually due; however, material from these sections will be fair
game for the final exam, so I suggest that you do these problems as though it were a real
homework assignment.

******
These problems can be turned in for extra credit at any time during the semester,
up until the final exam.

There will be three Honors Projects over the course of the semester. The projects are mathematical writing assignments to be completed in small groups (assigned by Prof. Martin). Your work will be evaluated on the correctness of the mathematics, the clarity of the writing, and the overall presentation. In addition to consulting Prof. Martin, you may wish to make an appointment with the KU Writing Center to discuss matters of style and clarity.

**Honors Project 1 (due Monday, September 24)**

**Honors Project 2 (due Tuesday, November 6)**

**Honors Project 3 (due Thursday, December 6)**

The first in-class test was given on Friday, September 14. The test covered material from Chapters 1 and 2 of the textbook.

*Unofficial letter grades:*Roughly, 90-100 is an A, 80-89 is a B, 70-79 is a C, 55-69 is a D, and below that is an F. Please note that these letter grades are purely to give you an idea how you're doing so far, and will have no bearing on the final letter grade you earn.*Problems:*Blue version | Green version | White version*Solutions:*Blue version | Green version | White version

The second in-class test was given in class on Friday, November 9. The test covered material up to and including section 5.2 of the textbook.

*Unofficial letter grades:*Roughly, 75-100 is an A, 65-74 is a B, 55-74 is a C, 45-54 is a D, and below that is an F. Again, these letter grades are purely to give you an idea how you're doing so far, and will have no bearing on the final letter grade you earn.*Problems:*Blue version | Green version*Solutions:*Blue version | Green version

The Gateway Exam is an online exam that is designed to test (1) your familiarity with the technical rules of differentiation (mostly covered in Chapter 3 of the textbook) and (2) your ability to interact with technology in the context of mathematics.

The exam consists of two parts: an unproctored preliminary exam that you can take from any computer with an Internet connection, and a proctored exam that you must take in the Gateway Lab, 159 Snow. You must pass the preliminary exam before attempting the proctored exam.

The Gateway Lab opens for all Math 121/141 students on **Tuesday, October 2**.
The deadline for passing the preliminary exam by **Monday, October 29**, and
the deadline for passing the proctored exam is **Monday, November 12**.

Questions about the Gateway Exam should be addressed to gateway-help@math.ku.edu. Prof. Martin and the other Math 121 instructors are not involved with the administration or grading of the Gateway Exam.

All Math 121/141 students took a common midterm exam on Tuesday, October 9. The exam covered material from sections 1.1-4.1 of the textbook.

- Review problems
- Sample exam (with approximately the types and numbers of problems that will be on the actual exam)
- Unofficial letter grades:
Approximately, 180-205 is an A, 155-179 is a B, 135-154 is a C,
and below that is a D. Please note:
- These letter grades are purely to give you an idea how you're doing so far; they will have no bearing on the final letter grade you earn.
- While Math 141 and Math 121 share the same midterm exam, the grades are determined separately. The curve announced for Math 121 exam grades does not apply to Math 141 students.

The final exam will be held on **Tuesday, December 11**, in **426 Summerfield
Hall**, from **4:30 - 7:00 PM**. Please come ten minutes or so early.
(This room is just for Math 141. Students in Math 121 will take the exam
in other locations - consult your instructor.)
The final exam will cover material from sections
1.1-6.7 of the textbook. This is the same exam that will be taken by all
students in Math 121/141.

Review session times and places:

- Mr. Kabe Moen will be holding review sessions open to all Math 121/141 students
during the last week of classes (December 3-6). The dates, times, places and topics are as
follows:
**Monday, December 3, 7-8 PM, 330 Strong.**Differentiation: Key points from before the midterm and applications (pre-midterm and Chapter 4).**Tuesday, December 4, 7-8 PM, 412 Lindley.**Integration techniques (Chapter 5).**Wednesday, December 5, 7-8 PM, 330 Strong.**Applications of integration (Chapter 6).**Thursday, December 6, 7-8 PM, 330 Strong.**Finish with Chapter 6 and questions and answers.

- Prof. Martin's Q&A session:
**Monday, December 10, 2:30 - 5:00 PM, 252 Robinson**. - Prof. Martin's office hours:
**Tuesday, December 11, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:00 - 3:00 PM, 541 Snow**. (Please note that I'll be out of town, but reachable by e-mail, during the week of December 3-7.)
