CONTINUATION OF MATH 223/224 INTRODUCTION TO CALCULUS/DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS
See Math 224 Director's page for syllabus, old exams, and so on.
Also there you will find Math 224 weekly schedule of topics
I will assign Exercises in Calculus, Stewart, 9th ed. in addition to WebAssignments.
Sometimes I will collect a few!
WEEK 9/10 Oct 22-29
Fri Oct 22-Sun Oct 24 Read Sections 1.8 (intermediate value theorem) and 1.4 in Stewart Calculus e-book
Mon Oct 25-Wed Oct 27
The WA schedule is here for you to see easily. I want to avoid requests for extensions throughout the week.
CLASS WARMUP: Sec 1.4 Tuesday Oct 26, 8 AM
CLASS WARMUP: Sec 2.1 Wednesday Oct 27, 8 AM
CLASS WARMUP: Sec 2.3 Friday Oct 29 8 AM
Sec 2.2: Saturday Oct 30 11:59 PM
In case you didn't see the home page or the email, Math 224 are T/Th 1-3 at Office hours zoom link
Wed Oct 27-Fri Oct 29
Here is a collection of videos that show how to determine the equation of the line tangent to a function f(x) at a given point via the definition of derivative to get the slope and the point-slope form of the line to get the eqn. Watch as many as you need to:
HALLOWE'EN WEEKEND EXERCISES, READING AND VIDEOS
Sec 2.2 Saturday Oct 30 11:59 PM (repeating reminder here)
CLASS WARMUP Sec 2.4 Monday Nov 1 08:00 AM
WEEK 11 Nov 1-Nov 5

Today's lecture on zoom [Note, by yesterday I hadn't assigned Sec 2.4 exercises, so ignore my comment asking if you had any questions]
QUIZ 1 ON WEDNESDAY covers Sec 2.1 to 2.4: Determine derivative from the definition, properties and rule, power rule shortcut, product and quotient rules, derivatives of the sine, cosine and tangent fcns
Do a bunch of the odd numbered exercises in Stewart Sec 2.4. I'll be more specific later.
Do next scheduled WebAssigns

Weekend before exam 1
WEEK 13 Nov 15-19

Watch the Videos 2.9a and 2.9b therein and whatever else I post
Do WA Warm-up Sec 2.9 (see WA site for date and time, which I extended)
Wed-Thurs Read Sec 3.1, max/min values and watch Videos 3.1a and 3.1b and any mini-videos I'll add
Fri-Sun View this: Best video for linear approximation and differentials
Mon Nov 22 - Sun Nov 28 THANKSGIVING BREAK WEEK
* Bulletin: Mean value theorem/Rolle's theorem are NOT on the final; they show up in Math 225; but finding c such that f' = 0, is the skill needed to find critical numbers so reviewing it in the guise of Rolle's thm is great practice. The algebra is probably most people's difficulty. Imm making up a worksheet that tackles the usual trouble spots in solving all kinds of equations for their zeros.
Sec. 2.9 exercises #1-3, 7, 13, 17
Sec. 3.1 exercises #1, 3, 9, 11, 17, 18, 31, 35, 41, 45, 51, 59
Sec. 3.3 exercises #1, 4, 11-14, 15, 17, 20, 21, 27, 43, 49, 62, 63
WEEK 15 Nov 15-19
Mon Thank you all for being flexible with the zoom today. You're great for helping me out so I can recover.
Wednesday lecture will be on Zoom again. I will send the invite directly from zoom at 7:50 a.m.
(DUE WED) On paper, show all work, for quiz grade, no late papers: Sec 3.1 #41, 45; Sec 3.3 #43, 49
Wednesday Today's lecture video
Please keep reading Sec 3.4 carefully! And watch the videos therein. Also:
WEEKEND AND LAST WEEK OF COURSE, DEC 4-10
The following are from the director, Prof Kazmierczak:
Note regarding the above: The function for #1 has one x-intercept (root), and it's difficult to find its value. The root is approximately x = 3.1, so use this value for the x-intercept when doing #1.
