• New (Oct. 29, passed out in class on Oct 28) Required Homework List for Test 3-4
• New (Oct. 5) Required Homework List for Test 2-3
• Old Required Homework List for Test 1-2

• Hopefully you already avoid worse offenses listed in the documents below... I don't feel strongly about all these things but if you do a large subset of them it can't hurt. I do think orderly writing can help encourage orderly thinking.
• Advice on formatting homework
• more advice on how to make your homework neat

• old course materials: for supplemental study.
• Precise Definition of limit notes, section 3.8 of my notes corresponds to 2.4 of Stewart. for supplemental study.
• Java Applet to help visualize the formal proof idea epsilon controls the vertical, delta the horizontal.
• old test 1 from NCSU: Ignore Problems 5a, 5b, 6, 7, 8 for now. Those items will be tested on our Test 2. We only cover up to section 3.1 on our test and I have not covered limits at infinity yet.
• another old test 1 from NCSU: for supplemental study.
• Solution of Homework Project I:
• supplement on complex numbers: contains what I said in part on Wednesday 9-25-2008 and then some. These notes are not as rigorous as what I plan to do in class Thursday 9-26-2008. The class I originally offered these notes for did not have the pleasure of deriving the adding angles formulas. You guys in contrast have done the work which builds the foundation for the complex exponential.
• supplement on complex exponential: I define the complex exponential function and derive a few simple properties. This is the more logically ordered version of what I describe in section 4.11. This justifies the use of the complex exponential to derive other identities.
• old test 2 from NCSU: for supplemental study.
• old test 2 from NCSU: keep in mind the test review 2 for our course is the best description of what's on our test 2 at LU Fall, 2008.
• WARNING: the content of calculus I at NCSU is quite different. Our finals and tests will reflect our course.
• old test 3 from NCSU: for supplemental study.
• old test 4 from NCSU: for supplemental study.
• old final exam from NCSU: for supplemental study.
• old practice test 3 from NCSU: for supplemental study.
• old test 3 from NCSU: for supplemental study.
• Chain Rules Problems to build skill: these would be good practice for the test. Try to do them w/o looking at the solution to start with.
• Solution of Homework Project II:
• Homework Project 3 solution
• Homework Project 4 solution
• "Practice Test 4" and solution

• Course Notes:

Lectures often closely follow these notes. Obviously there is not time to say everything during class, I try to stick to the most important parts in lecture.

• Chapter 1: Introduction
• Chapter 2: Functions (Review)
• Chapter 3: Limits
• Chapter 4: Derivatives
• Chapter 5: Applications of Derivatives and Limits at Infinity.
• Chapter 6: Foundations of Integration
• Chapter 7: Basic Integration and Applications
• Chapter 8: L'Hopital's Rule
• Additional Example 21 on U-substitution

• Bonus Point Policy:

Bonus points, unless announced otherwise, count towards some test which is not dropped. What is the name of the scientist pictured below ? It's worth a point on any test if you can tell me.

It is also possible to earn bonus points by asking particularly good questions or suggesting corrections to errors in notes and materials on the course website. This does not include spelling or grammatical errors, those are provided for your amusement. Once I notify the class of the error you may no longer ask for that point. To start with check our page of known errors (errata page)
