Math 2924, Section 020/021

Fall Semester 2019

There will be a Problem Review Session on Wednesday, December 11 from 5:00 to 6:30 PM in the Math Center. Bring questions or come and work on problems to help prepare for the final exam.

The final exam will take place **in PHSC 1105 on Friday morning December 13, 8:00--10:00 AM**.
There is a not-for-credit set of 200 problems available on WeBWorK that touch on most of the topics we have
discussed this semester and might useful for review. In addition any of the materials posted below
(midterm exams, weekly problem sets, exam reviews) could be good starting points for preparing for
the test.

Answers to midterm exams are available:

Review materials and problem sets from earlier in the semester can provide a starting point to prepare for the final exam:

- Problem Set 12/3
- Exam 4 review problems
- Problem Set 11/19
- Problem Set 11/12
- Problem Set 10/22
- infinite series review sheet
- Review for Exam 3
- Problem Set 10/15
- Problem Set 10/8
- Problem Set 10/1
- 9/24: Exam 2 review problems
- Problem Set 9/17
- Problem Set 9/10
- sample exam 1
- True/False review problems.
- more review problems.
- Problem Set 8/27

There are also LOTS of good review problems for power series in Stewart's book---specifically recommended ones are:

- section 11.7, and #11-26 on p. 825
- section 11.9: #3-28
- section 11.10: #19-25, 35-40,43-48,61-65, 73-80
- chapter 11 review (p. 825): 40-44, 47-52, 59

The source files for Mathematica demonstrations from class will be archived here:

- A pdf of the demonstration in class on October 30, and its Mathematica notebook
- A pdf for rotating parametric curves based on demonstration in class on October 16, and its Mathematica notebook
- A pdf showing the use of the ParametricPlot Command in Mathematica based on the demonstration in class on October 2, and the Mathematica notebook itself.
- The first MATHEMATICA assignment was to compile all of the commands in this introduction into a MATHEMATICA notebook and make certain that they are operating correctly. (Generally speaking MATHEMATICA error messages will be indicated with red typeface, so make sure you don't have any.)

Attendees for the Tuesday Problem Review sessions should feel free to come late or leave early according to the dictates of their schedules.

Slide rules operate using logarithmic scales (with base 10). Youtube has numerous instructonal videos on their use such as The Slide Rule or MIT Slide Rules.

The Course Syllabus contains information about this course, including the projected exam dates and semester grading schemes.

The on-line WebWork Problem Sets may be accessed at

Initially you will login to the system using your OU 4x4 username as BOTH the WebWorK user name and the
password, however you should reset your password as soon as you can. (This can be done by clicking
on the "User Settings" menu button.) If you forget
your password at any time during the semester, send me an email and I will be able to
reset it for you (with a bit of lead time).

NOTES:

- For the proper syntax and available functions to be used in entering your
answers on WeBWorK here is a
**WeBWorK primer**. It is highly recommended to look this over and refer back to it as needed. - In the WeBWorK assignments I will be including problems that have been created by multiple authors. To some extent different authors may use different notations and syntax, so you should always read the problem carefully and be certain to write your answer in the indicated forms.
- Some problems will allow you to enter numerical answers in decimal form. However different authors may have different conventions for the number of decimal places of accuracy. For example, if you have a problem where the correct answer is the square root of two then "1.41" may be acceptable for one author while another may require "1.41421". For this reason it is always best to enter your answer as "sqrt(2)".
