Math 2250, Fall 2017

Rough class schedule:

This calendar is updated weekly, indicating which textbook sections we plan to cover. It is where you will find paper HW assignments, test review documents, and other useful handouts.

This schedule will not show the topics for each day. Instead, it will outline what we plan to cover over the whole week. If you want more detail, email me or talk to me outside of class.


Week 1:

  • Introduction to the course (see the syllabus at the top of this page)
    • Make sure to log on to WeBWorK and practice with it! Check the syllabus or email me if you're having problems.
    • You will need to install VPN (virtual private network) programs if you plan to use WeBWorK off-campus. Read this to see the necessary steps.
    • Here's an algebra pretest. In class, I only handed out the first two pages; you can read the rest for review if you want.
  • Section 2.1: average and instantaneous slopes, introduction to tangent lines
  • Section 2.2: limit laws
  • (We skip Section 2.3 about the formal definition of limit.)
  • Section 2.4: one-sided limits, and the Squeeze Theorem with sin(theta)/theta


Paper HW: Demo HW

  • This is just a sample to show how these assignments work. Next week, you'll have an assignment put out Monday and due on Friday.
  • Solutions
    • In the future, partial solutions will be uploaded to eLC on Mondays after the due date.

Week 2:

  • Section 2.5: continuity and the Intermediate Value Theorem
  • Section 2.6: horizontal and vertical asymptotes
    • We will also show how to draw sign diagrams, keeping track of when a function is positive or negative.


Quiz this week: Section 2.2


Paper HW 1 (due Friday August 25 in class)

  • This is the first paper assignment, so leave yourself plenty of time to try it! You may want to check out the office hours schedule at the top of this page.
    • Look at last week to see a demo writeup which shows the level of explanation I'm expecting.
  • Solutions to some of the problems will be uploaded to eLC on the following Monday.


Test 1 will be next Tuesday, August 29, in class.

  • Some review material should be uploaded here by Friday or next Monday at the latest.
  • Next Monday will be a review day in class.
