A list of the students in the class
An outline of what went on in class.
An archive of messages I've sent to the class.
Student information sheet | In Postscript | In PDF | A sheet passed out on the first day of class so that I could learn about the students. |
The Entrance "exam" | In Postscript | In PDF | The purpose of this assignment was to give some insight to students very early in the course about many of the methods which would be used. The first few meetings will only discuss useful but rather simple matters about complex numbers. |
Locating some complex numbers | In Postscript | In PDF | An exercise in class: do we understand what we are talking about? We'll be using the algebra and geometry asked about here a great deal, so the exercise is important. I asked people to work in groups so that you would begin to talk to each other. |
Showing the locations requested | In Postscript | In PDF | The answers to the previous exercise. |
Draw some pictures | In Postscript | In PDF | An effort to see if people can understand a string of definitions. We'll go over this in the next class. |
Changes in F | In Postscript | In PDF | More effort to get people to think "complex". Here several rigid linear transformations are given in complex notation, and their effects on "F" are requested. |
Some non-linear changes in F | In Postscript | In PDF | The effect on "F" of z^{2} and 1/z. First students were asked to described the size of the polar "rectangle" in which F sits. Misdated because of snow and bad timing. |
Another mapping of F | In Postscript | In PDF | Students were asked to draw the effect of z^{3} on F. Misdated because of snow and bad timing. |
Review problems for the first exam | In Postscript | In PDF | See also an old exam with answers. |
The first exam | In Postscript | In PDF | Given February 28, 2001 |
The answers to the first exam | In Postscript | In PDF | Grades ranged from 20 to 97. The instructor would have gotten a 98 due to a careless error. |
Review problems for the second exam | In Postscript | In PDF | Will there be time for students to ask questions? Well, here are answers in Postscript and in PDF. On 4/16/2001, a correction suggested by M. Clarke was made. Thanks! |
The second exam | In Postscript | In PDF | Given April 16, 2001 |
The answers to the second exam | In Postscript | In PDF | Grades ranged from 43 to 100. |
Computing a definite integral with the Residue Theorem | In Postscript | In PDF | Going step-by-step through a very useful classical application of complex analysis. |
The final exam | In Postscript | In PDF | Grades ranged from 88 to 172. |
