Instructor: Joe Erickson (erickson@bucks.edu)
Textbook: Calculus, by Briggs & Cochran
Term: Fall 2013

Announcements for Fall 2013 Section E59

December 20 - Exam #5 and its key (mostly) is in Resources. I still need to include the solution to the last problem.

December 15 - There is now an example of using the Divergence Theorem in Chapter 15 of the Notes. More additions to come...

November 20 - Exam #3 scores have been sent out via BCCC e-mail. The key to the exam will appear on this site soon.

November 13 - Exam #3 is now viewable in Resources. The key is not yet up there, though you'll find most of the problems in the exam are straight out of the book and so may be in the solution manual. Stay tuned.

November 4 - It seems best to move the window for taking Exam 3 to November 6 - November 12, so we'll do that.

November 2 - Exam #2 scores have been sent out via e-mail. I said in the Orientation that you can't rely on the past exams to prepare for future exams, but it looks like many of you didn't believe me.

October 29 - Exam #2 and its key are now available in Resources for two bits a gander.

October 16 - Chapter 13 has been streamlined a bit, with less clunky notation and clearer language (in particular I eliminated the "class C^k" stuff).

October 15 - In Chapter 13 of the Notes there has been added, on page 14, the Multivariable Squeeze Theorem. It's not found in the textbook (or any other mainstream calculus text that I'm aware of), but it's quite similar to the Squeeze Theorem from Calculus 1 and easy to use. On page 15 there is an example that makes use of the theorem. The limit is something that cropped up in the evening class when examining exercise #13.4.45(b). I think the book's "solution" to #13.4.45(b) is implicitly making use of a "squeeze" argument, though the argument is so muddy I can scarcely make out where it's driving. A few other tweaks were made to Chapter 13 (mostly rearranging stuff).

October 3 - Exam #1 and its key are now available in Resources (link below).

October 1 - Proposition 13.20 and Example 13.21 have been greatly simplified in the Notes, and I've cleaned up some typos and improved the formatting of Chapter 13 a little.

September 27 - There are just three more days left to take Exam #1 at the Newtown testing center. Two days, really, if you consider that the testing center is closed on Sundays.

August 30 - I have tweaked the wording of the next-to-last paragraph of the Orientation a little bit (see the E59 syllabus linked to below). Some typos were fixed, also. Incidentally, I do have a Tuesday/Thursday evening section of Math 242 going on (6:30 pm at Founders Hall 315). If any of you want the lecture experience, I have no problem with you showing up to the class. Check out the section N82 syllabus linked to below to make sure you don't come on an exam day, though!

August 28 - The Orientation is now viewable in the E59 Syllabus (link below) starting on page 2. If you don't see page 2 hit the refresh button. Read through the syllabus as soon as you can.

August 14 - Announcements pertaining to the Fall 2013 distance-learning section E59 of Math 242 (Calculus 3) will appear here in this box. The first day of the course is not until August 28, however.

December 10 - We're still on track to have the last exam on Thursday, December 19, although a tweak may need to be made to the list of items the exam will cover.

October 29 - Exam #2 and its key are now available in Resources for two bits a gander.

October 16 - Chapter 13 has been streamlined a bit, with less clunky notation and clearer language (in particular I eliminated the "class C^k" stuff).

It's not found in the textbook (or any other mainstream calculus text that I'm aware of), but it's quite similar to the Squeeze Theorem from Calculus 1 and easy to use. On page 15 there is an example that makes use of the theorem. The limit should look familiar if you were in class tonight! I think the book's "solution" to exercise #13.4.45(b) is implicitly, in a hand-wavy way, making use of a "squeeze" argument, though the argument is so muddy I can scarcely make out where it's driving. A few other tweaks were made to Chapter 13 (mostly rearranging stuff).

October 3 - Exam #1 and its key are now available in Resources (link below).

October 1 - Proposition 13.20 and Example 13.21 have been greatly simplified in the Notes, and I've cleaned up some typos and improved the formatting of Chapter 13 a little.

August 26 - Announcements pertaining to the Fall 2013 evening section N82 of Math 242 (Calculus 3) will appear here in this box. The first day of class is Thursday, August 28. The link to the syllabus down below is not yet operational.
