Two remarks regarding the midterm content announced on the Common Math 104/184 Webpage :
1. Section 2.3: you only need to know material up to the end of Quick Check 3 on p. 74 (so midterm does *not* cover The Squeeze Theorem, etc.)
2. Section 3.5: you only need to know the table of derivatives Theorem 3.13 on p. 167. (and use these in the context of product rule, quotient rule, etc -- as explained in class today).

Sep 19: An extremely important e-mail on quiz policies sent to the class.
