calculus questions

i am VERY scared about the ap calc test. :(

any advice from anyone? any good sites to take a look at? HELP!!

thanks buddy, but i meant more specific, like looking at past exams there have been a buncha related rates.. so we are thinking they wont put one on this year, and there is going to be a implicit diff. on there.. anyones thoughts?

There will be a problem with one or two functions and you have to find the area between the curves and the area of the solid revolved around a line, most likely the x-axis. Don't be scared.

yeah i agree, like cross sections and stuff....

By Lm4hb (Lm4hb) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:18 pm: Edit

I like related rates :(. Then again I like implicit diff. and solids of revolution :)

Our teacher gave us an assignment to predict the questions.
My predictions:
1. acceleration and velocity
2. area volume
3. reimann sums, trapezoidal sums
4. optimization-max. related rates
5. implicit diff. tangent lines
6. slope field. separation of variables

Power/Maclaurin series
Area of a polar

if theyre going to do cross section again this year, i dont think its going to be a semicircle or square. they might surprise us and do a rectangle like last year or triangle

By Jayyy (Jayyy) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:23 pm: Edit

I love Acceleration and Velocity
Area, Volume
Slope field.


I HATE RELATED RATES/OPTIMIZATION PROBLEMS. KILL!

By Jason817 (Jason817) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:26 pm: Edit

hardest parts:

-anything dealing with cross-sections
-lagrange remainders

By Jayyy (Jayyy) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:28 pm: Edit

How do you do triange, circle, or rectangle?!

I know how to do squares - s^2

By Athlonmj (Athlonmj) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:31 pm: Edit

triangle = s^2 * sqrt(3) / 4

circle = just find r and do pir^2

rectangle is pretty easy...

By Commonsense (Commonsense) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:33 pm: Edit

semicircles is:
.5pi r^2
so the setup is:
pi/2 * int( r^2 dx)

By Emyh (Emyh) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:38 pm: Edit

I loove related rates, optimization, and particle problems!

I HATE CROSS-SECTIONS

By Jason817 (Jason817) on Monday, May 03, 2004 - 10:41 pm: Edit

well setting up the integral and plugging into the equation is the easy part. The hard part is finding what the values are for the radius, height, and/or length.

particle question

By Cornell_Hopeful (Cornell_Hopeful) on Tuesday, May 04, 2004 - 08:13 pm: Edit

I'm taking this tomorrow and the scary thing is, I don't know half of what you guys are talking about. And this coming from a person who gets 99s in the class.

By Mstaken (Mstaken) on Wednesday, May 05, 2004 - 01:32 am: Edit

Cornell, same here. However, I DO know that rate of change is slope. lol, that's about it. GOd, I'm screwed.
