BC Assignments for Fall Semester, 2017-2018:

(this is an archive of assignments - don't expect instant postings, or future assignments!)

07 Dec p. 371 / 1 - 17, 20 - 22, 24 - 27, 29, 31

05- 06 Dec p. 355 / 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 12 15, 17, 19, 22 - 25, 28 - 30 (1st period T9-84 users: I have programs for you that you can get from me any time, or download from my website; the -89 has built-in abilities as shown in class)

01 Dec Bring every last bit of uncollected homework on MONDAY! Don't forget - no excuses!

Note: AMC sign-ups this week with Mr. DeRuiter in E-203 at lunch, $5, 7 Feb after school.

28 - 29 Nov p. 347 / 1 -29 (odd) (Bring your TI-84 on Thursday and I will provide a slopefield program; TI-89s already have that capacity built-in)

27 Nov Assume that resistance is proportional to velocity squared. Draw slope fields and solve for (a) velocity V and (b) position S

21 - 22 Nov p. 338 / 1 - 9 (odd), 12, 14, 15 - 33 (3n), 34 - 36

20 Nov finish IBP worksheet; then do p. 328 / 3 - 24 (3n), 26, 27, 30, 33

17 Nov finish the ivory sheet, then do p. 321 / 1 - 17 (odd), 18 - 42 (3n), 43, 44, 49

16 Nov experiment a bit with some of the problems on the ivory sheet; we'll go through them all in class on Friday

14 - 15 Nov first, complete the yellow slope field worksheet first if you haven't done so already; then do p. 312 / 3 - 51 (3n) plus 25, 52, 61

13 Nov complete the handout, "Do we believe the fundamental theorem?", estimating where it says to do so (not guessing what you think it should be). If you simply put in what the theorem says, it will match the theorem perfectly, even if the theorem is false!

09 Nov p. 297 / 13 - 16, 18; You can use the programs I downloaded into your calculator during the learning opportunity. Nspire users: copy this URL into your browswer: http://fac.hsu.edu/lloydm/Nspire/ for a program to do Simpson's rule. You will need a zip file extractor, to open the "calculus" link (or you can always do a web search on your own for a suitable program)

07 - 08 Nov p. 296 / 10, 11, 20; then evaluate Simpson's rule for the integral from a to b of x-squared to show that it is exact

06 Nov finish the green sheet, and then do p. 295 / 1, 4, 6 - 9, 11, 17, 19, 23 [note: you can use the LMRRAM program, and then average the results for LRAMn and RRAMn to get TRAPn for big n values] BRING YOUR CALCULATOR ON THURSDAY to get more programs!

03 Nov p. 286 / 1 - 13 (odd), 15 - 51 (3n), 52, 54, 59

02 Nov finish the MVT/I worksheet and then do p. 275 / 13 - 17, 20, 21, 24, 25, 28, 29, 32, 36, 38, 40, 43, 44

26 Oct p. 255 / 3, 4, 6, 14 - 18, 23, 28. You may use the programs distributed during class; TI-nspire users click here for instructions on how to do it without a program. If you did not get a program for your -84 or -89, you may download it from your PC here, or find someone else who can share it by cable from another calculator.

24 - 25 Oct p. 254 / 1, 2, 9, 12, 20, 21, 24, 26 and BRING YOUR GRAPHING CALCULATOR ON THURSDAY !

19 Oct finish the handout for Fuel Tanks III / Ice Capades; then try p. 237 / 3 - 39 (3n) Free hint: when all else fails, try similar triangles and/or Pythagoras.

17- 18 Oct for Newton's Method, do p. 230 / 15 -18, 49, 50, 51 from our text, plus problems 1 - 23 (odd), to 4 decimal places please, from this set. The semi-automatic calculator operation I showed in class is demonstrated in Exploration 2, p. 224 if you forgot it. Please also try to finish the Fuel Tanks II worksheet (the back side).

10- 11 Oct try the "differentials" side of the worksheet; then do p. 229 / 3, 5 - 9, 11, 14, 19, 22, 25, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39, 44

06 Oct p. 214 / 1, 5, 8, 9,12, 17, 19, 26, 31, 35, 36, 38, 40, 41, 43, 45, 46, 49, 50 (note: when all else fails, try similar triangles or Pythagoras)

05 Oct find the inflection point for a logistic function y = M / (1 + Ae^(-kx))

03 - 04 Oct p. 203 / 1 - 29 (odd), 37, 40, 42- 46, 48, then guess Ben, Elaine, and Eric's last names (no "research" -- just guesses!).

21 Sep finish up the assignment from p. 155 shown below

01 Sep try to think of, imagine, or create functions, with domain all reals, that staisfy these conditions: (a) one that is continuous everywhere; (b) one that is discontinuous at one point; (c) one that is discontinuous at infinitely many points; (d) one that is discontinuous everywhere; and finally, (e) one that is continuous at only one point (absolutely no "research", consultation, "checking your work", or outside sources, please, just thinking by yourself! Talking to ANYONE or looking anything up, before or after, is cheating!) IT'S O.K. TO BE WRONG; the thinking (not the answer) is what I want.

18 Aug without using any aids (no calculators or books) graph all six inverse trig function and determine the domain and range for each

part 2: if you haven't already done so, check your "fuhsd" e-mail account for a test message from me (sent on Friday) and REPLY to me so I know you got it
