Title (with PDF links) 
What is it?  Handed out or posted 

What can be done to these series and integrals?  This is a neat quiz written by Dr. Julia Wolf, and I urge you to
spend a half hour answering it before we go over the results at the
review session. Here are some answers to this quiz, if you can't wait until Monday (but please try the problems yourself first. This link was created as a consequence of an inquiry by Ms. Jeschke. We can discuss these problems Monday.  12/11/2009 
How to gamble  I distrbuted this material in another Math 152 course. It substantially covers the "gambling" ideas I discussed today in class.  12/9/2008 
Sequences & series methods  I taught seven (7, VII) sections of Math 152 last spring. Some students wanted guidance on the methods to use when analyzing sequence and series problems. I attempted to describe the methods known in Math 152. You may find this helpful.  12/5/2009 
Review material for the final exam  12/1/2009  
The tenth workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions written by teams of N students, where 1≤N≤3. The last workshop!  11/23/2009 
Answers to the second exam  Here are detailed answers to the second exam. Please tell me any
comments or corrections. Copies of the answers were distributed with
graded exams in lecture on Monday, November 23. Here is a discussion of the grades and grading.  11/23/2009 
The second exam  Here is a version of the second exam, in a somewhat more compact format. Graded exams were returned in lecture on Monday, November 23.  11/23/2009 
The ninth workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions written by teams of N students, where 1≤N≤3.  11/7/2009 
Review material for the second exam  11/12/2009  
More pictures  Here are some pictures which are in response to problem #5 on workshop 5. The pictures show some logistic curves (solutions to the logistic equation) with very different "time scales" than we're used to. They also show how useful the idea of linear approximation is (thus leading into Taylor approximation!).  11/3/2009 
The eighth workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions written by teams of N students, where 1≤N≤3.  10/23/2009 
The seventh workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions
written by teams of N students, where
1≤N≤3, although a team of students who solve all of the problems
is a neat idea. There is an interesting trig identity in problem 29 of section 11.4 which might help with problem 4. Heh, heh.  10/23/2009 
Absolute value and some trigonometric (!) approximations  This is a brief glimpse of a theme many of you will see in more advanced courses and in applications. I wanted to mention this after the presentations of Mr. Rusnak (problem 1 in workshop 5) and Ms. Jou (problem 3 in workshop 4). These are interesting problems.  10/23/2009 
The sixth workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions
written by teams of N students, where
1≤N≤3. Working together, we were able to escape the classroom maybe 3 minutes early! Remember, there is a "me" in "team". Also an "eat" and a "tea" and ...  10/19/2009 
Answers to the first exam  Here are detailed answers to the first exam. Please tell me any
comments or corrections. Copies of the answers will be returned with
graded exams in lecture on Monday, October 12. Here is a discussion of the grades and grading.  10/12/2009 
The first exam  Here is a version of the first exam, in a somewhat more compact format. Graded exams will be returned in lecture on Monday, October 12.  10/12/2009 
The fifth workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions
written by teams of N students, where
1≤N≤3. The missing "=1" noted by Mr. Oakes (thank you!) in problem 4 (the ellipse problem), which was stolen by interstellar villains, has been put back.  10/2/2009 
Review material for the first exam  9/25/2009  
The fourth workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions written by teams of N students, where 1≤N≤3.  9/25/2009 
The third workshop  Please hand in N problem solutions
written by teams of N students, where
1≤N≤3. I thank Mr. Kotikalapudi (problem 2) and Mr. Priestner (problem 4) for presenting solutions. One of my goals is that you to learn to solve as many of these problems as possible. Yes, it is easy to do the third problem, and you can do this, but not learning about some of the other problems (even by checking other students' solutions) means that you are missing an excellent opportunity.  9/21/2009 
The second workshop  Teams of two people should each hand in two writeups. The team
members are
jointly responsible for what is handed in. I thank Mr. Patel (problem 2) and Ms. Arya (problem 4) for presenting solutions.  9/12/2009 
The first workshop  Please hand in two writeups to any of these problems on Wednesday,
September 9. The pdf linked here has an example of a writeup, in
addition to the comments on this writeup link.
Some hints (responses to email questions) are here. I thank Ms. Jeschke (problem 1) and Mr. Sakhamuri (problem 4) for presenting solutions.  9/5/2009 
Information sheet  Information sheet handed out at the first lecture.  1/23/2009 
I've taught Math 152 a large number of times
before. I hope that finally this semester I will learn the material
and move on. The most recent occasions were the spring 2008 and spring
2009 semesters. The course material for those semesters is most
relevant to what we will do but the H exams may be somewhat more
challenging. I'll probably copy much of what I lecture about
from a year ago, so you can look there if you'd like to anticipate my
efforts.
Here are links to the course material for those instantiations. The material, which is quite extensive, includes exams with solutions, review material, and a course diary.
