Dobson Files

by Norman Dobson, edited by Thomas Gideon
(Thanks to Daniel Gatien for proofreading.)

These exercises were given by the late Norman Dobson under the title “Final Exam Problems.” They are excellent problems in preparation for examinations. I have used them with students in the past and have found that industrious students improve their performance by doing these problems.

Calculus Materials by Robert Seely

A collection of notes, exercise sets (practice tests), and old exams (going back to the mid 1990s), for Cal I, II, and III (Science). Also includes links to other notes and useful info.


Calculus II Exercises by Annette Clark

These exercises were given by Annette Clark, who taught at John Abbott College from 1973 to 2006. (Exercises typed by Gennaro Rispoli.)

 

Calculus (Social and Commerce)

Derivatives of functions for Curve Sketching

Derivatives of selected functions

This pdf lists the first and second derivatives of selected functions from Chapter 4.5 of the current textbook (Stewart’s Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 8th edition). The derivatives may be helpful to Calculus 1 students when analyzing the functions for curve sketching.

Practice Problems for Calculus 1

These sets are based on problems created by Gennaro Rispoli. They have been updated by the Calculus 1 course committee.

Elasticity Notes and Problems for Calculus 1

Supplemental material for Calculus 1, dealing with Price Elasticity of Demand.


 Practice Problems for Calculus 2

These problem sets form a good basis for practice in Calculus 2. Many Calculus 2 teachers assign them as homework.


Calculus Exercises and Tutorials by Gennaro Rispoli

These tutorials & exercises were given by Gennaro Rispoli, who taught at John Abbott College from 1997 to 2012. They cover most of the content of both Calculus 1 and Calculus 2, but do not reflect changes made to the content of the courses since 2012.
