The final exam
The final exam will be on Thursday, May 10, 2007, 7:30AM to 10:00AM.  Here is a study guide:

• Be able to draw the graph of a function F, given F'.
• Know integration by parts, integration by substitution, the second fundamental theorem of calculus (the derivative of the integral is ...), partial fraction decompositions, and trigonometric substitutions.  You will need to evaluate integrals based on these techniques and theorems, but you will NOT be allowed to use tables.  (However, the integrals will be relatively simple.)
