|A list of students in the course||Pseudo-diary|
(with PDF links)
|What is it?||Handed out|
|The final exam, in a more compact form||The final exam is graded and I am currently striving to give course grades. Information about the results is available.||5/12/2003|
|Formula sheet for the final exam||One additional correction made, thanks to Mr. Elkholy.||5/8/2003|
|Preparation for the final||Review material for the final exam. Here are the links promised there: answers to the four problems on the review sheet; last semester's final exam; exams in a similar course at MIT||5/5/2003|
|The bat and the slug||A problem to do in class||4/24/2003|
|Answers to the second exam.||Brief versions of answers.||4/22/2003|
|The second exam, in a compact form||The point values in problems 1 and 2 are correct (a shift of 1 point). Information about the results is available.||4/22/2003|
|Formulas to be given out for the second exam||The second exam formula sheet||4/16/2003|
|Review problems for the second exam||These were given out last semester. Some solutions are available.||4/12/2003|
|And another workshop ...||This one is due on 4/10.||4/3/2003|
|Answers to the first exam.||Brief versions of answers.||3/16/2003|
|The formula sheet for the first exam||One small addition was made to the draft.||3/16/2003|
|The first exam in a compact form.||One misprint was corrected (. changed to , in problem 8). Information about the results is available.||3/16/2003|
|Workshop #7||The next set of workshop problems, each of which is interesting and interesting to study. Students should certainly read all of the problems.||3/12/2003|
|Some Lagrange multiplier exampeles||This is the algebraic analysis of some nonroutine Lagrange multiplier problems. These pages also contain the Maple commands to create pictures which were handed out. Gif versions of these pictures are also available on old web pages.||3/12/2003|
|Review problems for the first exam||This is a set of review problems for the first
exam. Some solutions to
these problems are now available. Please note that an analogous extensive review sheet
with most solutions exists for
the fall instantiation of this course,
and an actual first
exam with solutions
also exists. Remember, however, that "There are some differences in
emphasis and content between
the fall 291 course and this course."|
The review session date has been corrected: Tuesday, March 11.
|Draft formula sheet||A draft of a formula sheet for the first exam. Comments and corrections are invited.||3/5/2003|
|Playing with the chain rule||Simple (?) exercises to do in class using data about differentiable functions.||2/27/2003|
|Workshop #6||Please another, this one to be done individually, please, and handed in Wednesday, March 5.||2/26/2003|
|Workshop #5||Yet another one, to be handed in Wednesday, February 26.||2/19/2003|
|Answer to the computational exercise about space curves||Students' answers varied a great deal. Here is my conception of the answers, and, perhaps more importantly, my computational strategy.||2/19/2003|
|Computational exercise about space curves||Students should work on this and hand it in on Wednesday, February
Current computational answers may be here.
|Workshop #4||The fourth workshop. Students may work on the problems individually
or in pairs. Problem solutions are due on Monday, February
Added 2/20: Problem 3 did not state that the oval racetrack was entirely made up of line segements and circular arcs! It does not appear so to me! Perhaps the problem statement should have emphasized that fact, and/or should have added the information that the curvature of the track is smooth. Perhaps.
|Workshop #3||The third workshop. Students may work on the problems individually or in groups. Problem solutions are due on Monday, February 10.||2/5/2003|
|Workshop #2||The second workshop. Students must had in joint work on these problems.||1/29/2003|
|Information sheet||A sheet to be passed out on the first day of class.||1/22/2003|
|Workshop #1||The first workshop. I would like students to write up solutions
individually to these problems.|
