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.

 

Clicking on each day leads you to a document with basic announcements, the daily exercise, solutions, and room for making a study guide.


UNIT 1: Applications of Integrals

Week 1:

  • Tue Jan 7. Introduction to the course (see the syllabus in the right margin of this page), and some review of derivatives and indefinite integrals.
  • Wed Jan 8. Sections 1.1 through 1.3: Riemann sums for area, Fundamental Theorem.
  • Fri Jan 10. Section 1.4, start 1.5: Net change, u-substitutions.
    • We'll have more examples of u-substitutions next Monday, but you may want to read ahead in Section 1.5 to get your WW done earlier!

 

No quiz this week: it starts next week.

 

There's no paper HW this week: it starts next week.


Week 2:

  • Mon Jan 13. Finish 1.5: substitution with definite integrals.
  • Tue Jan 14. 2.1: area between two curves.
    • Even if you've seen this topic before, you might not have seen the technique of using functions of y instead of x. (I call it "horizontal slicing.") You may want to look for further examples in the textbook, since we will use this technique quite a bit soon!
  • Wed Jan 15. Start 2.2: volumes and cross-sections, revolution by disks.
  • Fri Jan 17. Finish 2.2: revolution by washers.

 

Quiz this week: Integration question based on Chapter 1 Review (indefinite and/or indefinite)

  • As the syllabus mentions, quizzes are a single question. Most quizzes are 8 minutes, unless otherwise announced.
  • We start quiz days with a short review problem, which is a good chance to ask any last questions you have.

 

Paper HW 1, due on Friday 1/17/2020 (click on this text to download the assignment)

  • Take a look at the demo HW from last week to see examples of my presentation expectations.
  • Some solutions to paper HW are put on eLC (in the Content area) on the Monday after assignments are due.

Week 3:

  • No class on Mon Jan 20 due to Martin Luther King, Jr., Day
  • Tue Jan 21: Start 2.3: revolution by shells.
  • Wed Jan 22: Finish 2.3: contrasting the methods of washers and shells for volumes of revolution.
  • Fri Jan 24: Start 2.4: arc length of curves, review of perfect squares
    • You may want to read ahead in the book to go over surface area, if you want to finish WW 2.4 over the weekend!

 

Quiz this week: Disk question based on the early problems in Section 2.2

 

Paper HW 2, due on Friday 1/24/2020

  • Notice how Problem #1 does not want you to finish your integral. Instead, it wants you to provide drawings! Read the problem to see what detail I expect in those drawings.

Week 4:

  • Mon Jan 27. Finish 2.4: surface area of solids of revolution.
  • Tue Jan 28. Start 2.5: determining spring force and work via integrals.
    • We will skip most of 2.5 in the text, except for the sub-sections about Force And Work as well as Pumping A Tank.
  • Wed Jan 29. Finish 2.5: work (in physics) applied to weight, density, and tank-pumping
  • Fri Jan 31. 4.3: Separable differential equations.

 

Quiz this week (10 minutes): Shells (2.3)

 

Paper HW 3, due on Friday 1/31/2020

 

TEST 1 IS NEXT TUESDAY (FEB 4) IN CLASS.

  • You have all 75 minutes of class time for your test if you need them.
  • This test can cover topics ranging from the Fundamental Theorem up to separable differential equations. The WW assignment list goes from Chapter 1 Review up to 4.3. (We have skipped Ch 3 for now and will revisit it later.)
    • You may want to re-skim the Orientation WW set, now that you've had more experience typing answers!
  • Expect 6-8 questions on it similar to past assignments (generally easier than paper HW). You do not have to write long sentences in answers, but you may be asked for a bit of explanation.
  • Non-graphing calculators are allowed as the syllabus describes. Keep in mind that you may leave unsimplified answers similar to WW standards.
  • Topic list for the exam
  • Practice questions for the exam
    • We will go over some of these on Monday, but also bring or email your own questions!
    • The solutions to star-marked problems will go on eLC on Monday.

    • Test 2 usually has longer calculations than Test 1, so expect fewer total problems.
  • Non-graphing calculators are allowed as the syllabus describes. Keep in mind that you may leave unsimplified answers similar to WW standards.
    • Much like Quiz 5, I will allow you to introduce abbreviations for numbers you don't feel like recopying over and over.
  • Topic list for the exam
  • Practice questions for the exam
    • Next Monday is our in-class review day.

TEST 3 (TAKE-HOME) IS NEXT FRIDAY (APRIL 24). I'LL EMAIL IT TO YOU.

  • Since we're doing online class, this is open-book and open-notes.
    • You will have to sign an honor code on its cover page.
  • This test covers Sections 5.1 through 5.6 and 6.1 through 6.3.
  • You will have effectively 24 hours to complete the exam, due by 5pm (Eastern time) on April 24.
    • I'll design the test to probably take a bit longer than previous midterms, so expect about 75-95 minutes of total time. Expect somewhere from 6 to 8 questions on it.
  • Topic list for the exam
  • Practice questions for the exam (with a bit of space to fill in answers)
  • In-class review day is next Wednesday.

Week 13 and final two days of class:

  • Wed Apr 22. Test 3 Review.
    • Bring your own questions, especially more open-ended questions like "Why do we use this test instead of another?" or "How do I tell a_n and [series] a_n apart?"
    • Solutions to some of the practice problems will go on eLC on Wednesday.
  • Fri Apr 24TEST 3: Class does not meet.
  • Mon Apr 27 and Tue Apr 28 (on a Monday's schedule!). Final exam review days.
    • We'll go over the old midterms.
    • Fill out an eLC survey (more details in your email) about when you can take your final.

 

FINAL EXAM INFORMATION

  • The test is effectively a combination of the skills of the previous three tests.
    • There will be a question at the start testing your ability to understand definitions and some basic concepts, much like what Midterm 3 had.
    • Expect around 12-14 questions, worth 200 points in total, so it's like double the length of an in-class midterm.
  • You'll get a time limit of 3hr20min for the test: that should be 3 hours for the test and up to 20 min to upload your results to the Assignments area of eLC.
    • You should get your exam from eLC, though I might also email it to you. (Email isn't really easily possible if many people need to start their exam at different times.)
  • Like with Midterm 3, you'll have to sign an honesty agreement, whether it's on the cover sheet or on your own scratch paper.
    • This is still open-book and open-notes. You may use any of the class material in eLC or on this site, as well as your own notebooks.
  • Office hours for finals:
    • Tuesday Apr 28: 3:15-4:45pm
    • Wednesday Apr 29 and Thursday Apr 30: 8-10am and 2-4:30pm
    • Or email me to suggest a time. If you need a one-on-one session, let me know.
  • SUGGESTED TOOLS FOR CONVENIENT UPLOADS:
    • OfficeLens app for mobile devices can help your picture focus on just the page boundaries, clean it up, and send a PDF to OneDrive.
    • ilovepdf.com has free utilities to combine several PDFs in one document, among other features.
