Math 100: Week 3 and pre-midterm

This is a post for my Math 100 class of fall 2013. In this post, I give the first three weeks’ worksheets from recitation and the set of solutions to week three’s worksheet, as well as a few administrative details.

Firstly, here is the recitation work from the first three weeks:

  1. (there was no recitation the first week)
  2. A worksheet focusing on review.
  3. A worksheet focusing on integration by parts and u-substitution, with solutions.

In addition, I’d like to remind you that I have office hours from 2-4pm (right now) in Kassar 018. I’ve had multiple people set up appointments with me outside of these hours, which I’m tempted to interpret as suggesting that I change when my office hours are. If you have a preference, let me know, and I’ll try to incorporate it.

Finally, there will be an exam next Tuesday. I’ve been getting a lot of emails about what material will be on the exam. The answer is that everything you have learned up to now and by the end of this week is fair game for exam material. This also means there could be exam questions on material that we have not discussed in recitation. So be prepared. However, I will be setting aside a much larger portion of recitation this Thursday for questions than normal. So come prepared with your questions.

Best of luck, and I’ll see you in class on Thursday.

Math 90: Week 2

Yes, although it’s the second week of class, this is after the first recitation.

In addition, I can now announce my office hours. They are from 7-8PM on Monday in Kassar House room 105 and 12:30-1:30PM on Wednesday in my office (number 18, my name is on the door) in the basement of the Kassar House. To get in the building on Monday, you should look at the MRC page, and in particular at this (shaky youtube) video.

After my evening recitation, I’ll post up the problems I gave out in class and their solutions. Please feel free to ask any questions you want here. The details are included after the fold:

2401: Missing recitation

As I went to visit Brown on the 16th-18th, I had my friend Matt cover recitation. As we have started considering double and triple integrals, and iterated integrals in particular, I thought I could point out a very good site for brushing up on material. I think it can act as a wonderful supplement to the lecture and recitation material. The Khan Academy is an online information center built around the idea that video presentations and video lectures can give intuition without adding any pressure – you can rewatch anything you’ve missed, repeat important parts, etc. all without feeling like you’re wasting someone’s time. While most of the Khan material is aimed at primary and secondary school, they happen to have a multivariable calculus section (although it’s far insufficient to Tech’s course material – don’t think of this as a replacement, but instead as merely a supplementary way to build intuition).

Here are links to the Khan Academy website, and links to 5 lectures that I think are relevant to material I would have covered.

Intro to iterated integrals
II III IV and V

I encourage you to check them out before we meet again for recitation.
