- Program from class on Feb. 14 to graph derivatives of exponential functions, and see the ratio f'(x)/f(x)
- Program from class on Mar. 7 to graph derivatives of several functions.
- Program from class on Apr. 11 to explore integration.
- Program from class on Apr. 25 to illustrate the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.

- Presentation (powerpoint slides) from class on May 9 about harmonic motion.

I will also be available in the classroom after class on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

You may also ask any questions directly via phone or e-mail. If I'm not in when you call, please leave a message on the voice-mail or answering machine with your name, number, and a good time for me to call you back. I will try to respond to your phone or e-mail message as soon as possible.

You will recognize when it is appropriate to use technology, when a purely symbolic approach is more effective, and how to mix the two. You will be able to compute derivatives and simple integrals numerically and symbolically.

You will be able to set up and solve problems which require understanding and use of derivatives and integrals. You will be able to solve open-ended problems, problems which require written commentary rather than a string of symbols or numbers, and problems for which different answers may be equally correct.

**Required Reading:**
Read each chapter that we cover in class, both before and after class.
Skim the chapter before class, even if you don't understand it fully,
to have some idea of what we'll be doing in class. Read it more
carefully after class to clarify and fill in details you missed in
class.

**Warning:**
Sometimes, we will not "cover" all the material from a chapter, but
instead focus on a particular aspect of the chapter. In such cases, I
will point out in class (and at this
website) which other
parts of the chapter I expect you to read on your own.

I hope everyone will complete the course successfully, but if you are having doubts about your progress, I will be happy to discuss your standing in the course to help you decide whether or not to drop. You are only allowed three enrollments in this course, and students enrolled after Fall 2007 are only allowed six withdrawals in their entire academic career, so please exercise the drop option judiciously.
