Dr. Sadun's M408M Sections, Fall 2006

Last updated December 12

There will be homework assigned every week, and homework quizzes in discussion section on Wednesdays, every week except those weeks with exams, and the week of Thansgiving. (On Thanksgiving week, the quiz will be on Monday.) A "homework quiz" is a quiz consisting of one or two homework questions, or questions that are just like those on the homework. If you've done the homework, you should have no trouble aceing the quizzes! The homework itself is not to be turned in.

Homework #1; (Quiz on September 6)

Section 11.1: 1, 4, 8, 9, 11, 14, 24, 28.

Section 11.3: 6, 13, 14, 27, 30, 45, 54, 60, 75

Section 11.4: 5, 14, 28, 45, 46

Homework #3; (Quiz on September 20)

Section 11.5: 10, 11, 14, 17 plus "challenge problems" (will not
be tested) 59 and 60

Section 11.6: 4, 5, 6, 12, 14, 26, 27

Take the true-false quiz on page 733

Homework #5: (No quiz on October 4, due to exam on October 5)

these, but they're easy)

To study for the midterm exam, I strongly suggest doing the concept
check on page 880 and taking the true-false quiz on page 881. If
you have any trouble, find some additional problems from the relevant
section, or from the exercises on page 881-2, and do them.

The quiz on October 11 will cover material from Homework #5

Review problems for the final exam:

Chapter 16: Go over the concept check on page 1085 and the T/F quiz.
Exercises 1-50 on page 1086-7 are also good, but do NOT waste your time on problems 51-54.
Obviously you don't want to do all 50
problems, but doing one or two from each group is a good idea.

The same applies to all of the earlier chapters. You should be confident with
ALL of the concept checks and the T/F quizzes. On the chapter exercises, the graphics problems
and the last 5-10 problems are NOT worth your time, but a sampling of the other problems is worthwhile.
I recommend that you look at the sections where you had trouble with the HW. Go over that old HW, and then
do the chapter review problems that are on similar material.

In general, look for problems that either stress basic technical skills that you are shaky with (especially
facts about lines, planes, dot products and cross products, which we kept using throughout the term), or
that stress general concepts, like "what does a double integral mean", or "how do you reverse the order of
integration". Don't spend a lot of time of specific applications that we did once and never touched again,
like finding the equation of a hyperbola from its focus and directrix, or finding the distance from a point
to a line. I won't promise that NONE of them will appear on the final, but they're far less likely
than the bread-and-butter calculations that we did over and over again.

Good luck!
