The Syllabus. You might want to check out the Q-center.

FINAL EXAM: Thursday, Dec 17, 8 AM - 10 AM, MSB 307. The final exam is cumulative. You can bring a 3 by 5 notecard. The best way to prepare for this exam is to review all the homework problems. Here is a practice exam (you do not need to do problem 1).

Here are Solutions to Quiz2 and Solutions to Quiz3.

For additional study you can check out some quizzes from other sections, for example this one and this one. There is also an exam. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions.

Check out Sage . Some examples of limits . The twisted cubic . Click with your mouse on the picture to view it from different angles. I also published the worksheets we did in class: elliptic paraboloid, ellipsoid, hyperbolic paraboloid, hyperboloid and cone (change the value of k). There are also the skew lines.

Guidelines for written homework:
Tell me who your scribe is
Write neatly or type
Repeat the problem
Write a text in which you explain why you are doing the computations that you are doing. For example, "The sphere that has center (1,2,3) and passes through the origin has the same radius as the distance between (1,2,3) and the origin. Using the formula for the distance between 2 points on page 767 (...here comes your computation ...) we find that the radius is the square root of 14. Hence the equation for the sphere is (...) using the formula for the equation of a sphere on page 768. Just as in the book write your formulas on a separate line.

Group homework, due September 24:
Find the distance between the skew lines of Example 3 on page 797.
