- 10/03 About WeBWork: For the WeBWork, the bottom 10% of scores won't count for the final grade. In other words, if there are total 200 problems in the webwork over the whole term, then the best 180 problems you did will count for the final grade.
- 09/28 Lecture notes are online. Please read the review on logarithm in our textbook (section 2.7).
- 09/19 Quiz 1 is this Thursday! (09/21). It will evaluate Sections 1.1 - 1.5 (it's all about limits). The examination will look like this sample quiz. Note: If you want to use L'Hopital, you have to indicate that you are using the L.H. rule with the correct form: 0/0 or inf/inf.
- 09/19 Today is the last day to drop without a W standing.
- 09/16 Assignment 2 is open. Most of the problems (but not all) refer to continuous or discontinuous functions. If you want to start the assignment during the weekend, read Section 1.6 in CLP-I. Questions on continuity are really questions about limits (specifically if the limit exists and is equal to the value of the function). We'll talk more about continuity next Tuesday.
- 09/12 Lecture notes are online. Remember: Assignment 1 is due by Friday.
- 09/07 Today's lecture is online. Read section 1.1 a second motivation for studying limits (we will go back to it later in the course).
