It took a little while, but here is a wrap-up of our pages. The course is finished, the grades are in!
You can see all the scores and solutions on the "scores and docs" page. Keep in mind final exam score average is significantly lower, because the best students don't take the final.
I thoroughly enjoyed teaching this class - you were my best Calculus 1 class in recent memory! Thanks to everyone for participation in working homework on the board - you make my job easier this way!
Have a good rest of the break!
The final exam will take place on Wednesday at 10:30 in our usual classrooms. It will be comprehensive and will consist of problems like you have already seen on the 5 exams. Therefore, start preparing for the final by making sure you can do all the problems on the exams we have had so far. Check out the sample final exam as well. Note that all exams are available blank on the "scores and docs" page.
If you need to see me, schedule for office hours next week is as follows:
Monday, 10:00-1:30; Tuesday, 10:00-12:00 and 2:30-4:00; Wednesday, 9:00-10:30
Good luck on finals!
Exam 5, covering sections 4.7, Appendix B, 5.1-5.3 and 5.5, is scheduled for Friday. Check out sample exam 5 in the usual place. By Sunday following the exam I will have your course grades, so you can decide whether to take the final exam.
On Monday, we will finish section 5.2, with discussion of homework in sections 5.1 and 5.2 occuring Tuesday and due Wednesday.
Have a good Thanksgiving holiday!
After the exam, you may relax... a little ... for homework for sections 4.7 and appendix B is due on Monday. On Monday, we start topics in chapter 5.
Incidentally, in your email, you received an invitation to evaluate this course. I encourage you to do this evaluation and give feedback on my work.
On Monday, we will start some new material. Homework in section 4.5 is due on Tuesday. (The significant part of class that did not show up on Friday can turn in homework for 4.3 and 4.4 on Monday.)
Exam 4, covering sections 4.1-4.5, is scheduled for next week, Thursday or Friday - we still have to make a firm decision. Check out sample exam 4.
On Monday, we will discuss homework over sections 4.3 and 4.4. (There is no need to lecture over section 4.4, because it is just a recap of the techniques we learned already.)
Expect exam 4 during the week after next.
Exam 3 has been rescheduled for Monday.
On Tuesday, we will finish section 4.2 and start discussion of homework in sections 4.1 and 4.2, which will spill over to Wednesday.
Exam 3, covering sections 3.1-3.3, 3.5 and 3.7, is scheduled for Thursday or Friday of next week. (Something tells me popular demand will be we make it Friday.) Check out sample exam 3.
Homework for sections 3.3 and 3.5 is due on Monday.
Since we did not get to going over homework in section 3.2 today, we will do it on Monday. Write-ups for sections 3.1 and 3.2 will be due on Tuesday.
Exam 2, over sections 2.1-2.7 is scheduled for Wednesday. Check out sample exam 2 to get an idea of what the exam will look like.
On Monday, we will go over section 2.7. Homework for sections 2.5 and 2.6 is due on Monday, and you will get it back on Tuesday.
On Monday, we will discuss homework from section 2.4. Write-ups for sections 2.3 and 2.4 are due on Tuesday.
Exam 1 turned out pretty well. See solutions on the "scores and docs page.
I uploaded the grades to Canvas, where you can also find your current overall average. I will update grade information on Canvas after every exam.
On Monday, we will discuss homework from section 2.2. Write-ups for sections 2.1 and 2.2 are due on Tuesday.
Exam 1, covering sections 1.3-1.6 is scheduled for Tuesday. On Monday, we will wrap up section 2.1 and there will be some time (but not the whole class) to ask questions ahead of the exam.
You can find a sample exam on the "scores and docs" page - check out sample exam 1. The exam will resemble the sample exam in the sense that it will cover the same ideas, but do not expect that I will just change the numbers. For a good self-test, time yourself and try to do the exam in 50 minutes. If you find it takes you too long to complete the exam, more studying is in order. See me for office hours if you need help.
On Monday, we will carry on with the material, starting section 1.6. Homework for sections 1.5 and 1.6 will be due on Thursday or Friday.
Expect our first exam early in the week after next.
Note my office hours have changed on Wednesday.
On Tuesday (no class on Monday), we will discuss homework from review section 1.2. Write-ups for sections 1.2 and 1.4 are due on Wednesday.
Have a good long weekend!
On Monday, we will discuss homework from section 1.1. Write-ups for sections 1.1 and 1.3 are due on Tuesday. You can find the homework assignment on the "scores and docs" page.
