Sample Problems
There are three primary sources for sample problems for Midterm 1:

Written homework for Weeks 1, 2, 3, and 4:

Sample Midterm 1 (pdf).

WeBWorK
homework due through Wednesday 27 January 2021,
and
WeBWorK
extra integration practice problems,
through those "due" Thursday 28 January 2021.
Of course, you should also know how to do all the
Midterm 0 problems.
Note, though, that the Midterm 1 problems will be in format much
more like the problems in the first list above.
Also, they will be graded by me rather than by a grader,
and I will look at work and notation much more carefully
than the grader does.
Solutions to items in the list above:
