This is a sample, and is meant to represent the material usually covered in Math 9A for the midterm. An actual test may or may not be similar.

Click on the  boxed problem numbers  to go to a solution.

 Problem 1 

Evaluate the following limits.

(a) Find  

(b) Find  

(c) Evaluate  

 Problem 2 

The function    is a polynomial and therefore continuous everywhere.

(a) State the Intermediate Value Theorem.

(b) Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to show that    has a zero in the interval  

 Problem 3 

Use the definition of the derivative to find     for the function  

 Problem 4 

To determine drug dosages, doctors estimate a person's body surface area (BSA) (in meters squared) using the formula:

where    is the height in centimeters and    is the mass in kilograms. Calculate the rate of change of BSA with respect to height for a person of a constant mass of    What is the rate at    and    Express your results in the correct units. Does the BSA increase more rapidly with respect to height at lower or higher heights?

 Problem 5 

Find the derivatives of the following functions. Do not simplify.
