Sequences & series methods Some students have talked to me and exchanged e-mail, discussing methods to use in analyzing sequence and series problems. After several exchanges, I attempted to describe the methods "we" know (in 152, so far). Please let me know if this is helpful, or if I've left something (important!) out. The second exam does not cover the Taylor series stuff (lower leftmost part of the outline).

This is not an effort to indicate how to look at infinite sequences or series for the rest of your life -- it is a just an attempt to organize what's been done in the course.

The sixth workshop Please hand in a writeup of the second problem on Thursday, March 12.
There should be some explanation, but this problem is fairly straightforward, so the explanation does not have to be very long. But please be careful about the improper integral.

The fourth workshop Please hand in a writeup of the third problem on Thursday, February 19.
I can't think of any helpful comments specific to this problem. If you take any lab courses, the idea of "mean-square error", is significant.

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 occasion was the spring 2008 semester when we first used the Rogawski textbook. Therefore the course material for that semester is most relevant to what we will do. I'll probably copy much of what I do from a year ago, so you can look there if you'd like to anticipate my efforts.

There is also material available from the spring 2007 semester and the fall 2001 semester, when a different textbook was used, so course content may not be identical. Also the fall 2001 course was one small section, another source of difference.

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.
