Things to do
Do the reading and the problems in the syllabus.

 This morning (Sunday, 12/20/2009) I submitted course grades to the Registrar's computer system. Students should be able to read their grades through that system soon. Information about grading the final exam and reporting course grades is here. It has generally been a pleasure to work with you in this course. Thank you.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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 e-mail questions) are here.
I thank Ms. Jeschke (problem 1) and Mr. Sakhamuri (problem 4) for presenting solutions.

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.

 Heros of language! These students have contributed to my knowledge of the weirdness of English, and I thank them. Mr. Levi who helped me understand grackle and obstacle. Mr. Dolinski who helped both with grackle/obstacle and with wound/wound. Ms. Jou who told me about wound and wound and additionally introduced me to the word heteronym.
