MAT1505 21F homework and daily class log

Jump to current date! [where @ is located]

Your homework will appear here each day as it is assigned, with occasional links to some MAPLE worksheets when helpful to illustrate some points where technology can be useful. [There are 56 class days in the semester, numbered consecutively below and  labeled by the (first initial of the) day of the week.]

It is your responsibility to check homework here. (Put a favorite in your browser to the class homepage.) You are responsible for any hyperlinked material here as well as requesting any handouts or returned tests or quizzes from classes you missed. Homework is understood to be done by the  next class meeting (unless that class is a test, in which case the homework is due the following class meeting). WebAssign deadlines are at 11:59pm of the day they are due, allowing you to complete problems you have trouble with after class discussion. [If Friday is quiz day, HW due Friday has a WebAssign deadline of midnight Monday.] Red numbered problems are a relic of the old online HW hints that are now superceded by the e-book addons.

" *" asterisk marked problems are to be done with MAPLE as explained in the separate but still tentative MAPLE homework log, which will be edited as we go.

Textbook technology: WebAssign homework management/grading is required, giving you access to an incredible wealth of multimedia tools together with the online e-book textbook you can access from any internet connection. WebAssign deadlines are suggested to keep students on track, but extensions in time and number of tries are always granted.
Textbook problems
are labeled by chapter and section and problem number, and identify each WebAssign problem. Those problems which are not available in WebAssign will be square bracketed and should be done outside of WebAssign. Check this page for hints and some linked Maple worksheet solutions. Use the Ask Your Instructor tool to get help on any problem for which you cannot get the correct answer. There is no reason for anyone not to get 100 percent credit for the homework assignments. This is the most important component of learning in this class, doing problems to digest the ideas.

If you have any questions, drop by my office St Aug 370 (third floor, Mendel side, by side stairwell) or just come to see where you can find me in the future when you need to; I welcome visitors.

  1. GETTING STARTED STUFF Monday August 23.
    In class open your favorite browser and log in to MyNova at (use your standard VU email username and password) and check out our class photo roster (search for Class Schedule with Photos), and visit my course homepage
    [ ],
    and bob will give you and overview of the class materials.
    (No need yet to look at the MAPLE examples and tips yet: we will get around to Maple soon.

  2. W: Lecture Notes 5.4 indefinite integration;

    Then open up this file: and read it with a partner, then do the final section exercise with the date from Stewart 5.4.74* on a shuttle liftoff height calculation (convert to mile units at the end). Ask bob when you are confused about anything. Finish this as part of a first Maple assignment. Find a partner or two eventually to join with you in consolidating your work into a single group worksheet and do other problems from chapter 5 (class contact info will be available after drop and add);

    , 23,
    30 [this problem is all about units! you need to convert inches to feet to get ft-lbs in the final answer],

This condition is easily solved by hand if you are careful! Plot the resulting line with the curve.  [soln]. assignment: 6.AppliedProject: Where to Sit at the Movies* (after 6.5) (p 465). Assume the result of part 1 (just trigonometry), then do parts 2-4 to get a real life example of an average viewing angle. Here is a worksheet to accomplish this.

  13. W: Chapter 7:1-4 "Methods of Integration" is obsolete in the age of computer algebra systems; there is no general approach to finding antiderivatives.
    Lecture Notes 7.1a on Integration by Parts;
    7.1:  (integration by parts is useful in physics/math variational problems, not so much as an integration technique that we need to worry about, but we need to be aware of the process):

  16. M:  Lecture Notes on Approximate Integration;
    7.7: (numerical error?): 22, 37 (tabular data with Simpson);
    [in class: 23* use template problem 24 here]

    Note that Simpson 3/8 uses a 3rd degree polynomial, while Newton Cotes formulas (see the Approximate Integration Tutor window menu) generalize the trapezoidal and these Simpson rules to even higher order polynomials. [wiki]
    Amusingly enough the proof of the error estimate for the trapezoidal rule involves two clever integration by parts and once verified, the whole proof becomes relatively straightforward. So as I mentioned, integration by parts is essential for advanced mathematics and applications. The Simpson's rule error estimate proof  is more of the same.

  17. W: Lecture Notes 7.8a on  Improper Integrals (infinite limits);

    8.1: 35, [try this for fun: 36*],
    37 [we have to simplify the integrand by combining fractions],
    39, 43,

    44* [if curious, plot the final profile over the given interval together with the ground line y = 0 and the line y = h where h is the height you found to hang the wire, and set equal units on both axes so that it looks like you would see it; also show your plot of the condition determining a and show the numerical solution].

    We skip 8.2 on surface area since this is not even required in the syllabus of multivariable calculus MAT2500.

    We are skipping 11.7 since general series convergence tests are not as important for Taylor series, where "absolute convergence rules" and the absolute convergence ratio test plus p-series comparison is all that matters; now we start the important stuff.

    10.4:  7, 21,
    31 (> plot([cos(2*t), sin(2*t)], t = 0 .. 2*Pi, coords = polar) find intersection point, find area of one half a single region between the two curves, multiply by twice the number of such regions; what percent of area of the circle passing through the intersection points does this represent? Is that reasonable?),
    44 (use numerical solution for angle of intersection).

  52. F: Lecture Notes 10.4c on polar curve arclength; [circle] [zoom]
    in class arclength of r = sin(theta/4), what is period over which you have to integrate?
    10.4: 47 (easy u-sub!), 50 (perfect square!), 51 (exact via Maple),
    517.XP [convert(L,ln) to force arcsinh to ln expression for WebAssign?).

    WEEK 14:
  53. M: Test 3 due in class today stapled;
    Optional Lecture Notes 10.5 on ellipses;
    in class group exercise: area and circumference of a specific ellipse (as part of review for both parametrized curves and polar coordinate integration).
    ellipses in action [even after Einstein]

  54. T [F]: 10.R (plots): 1, 11, 19 (what happens at theta = 0?),
    23 (m = -1), 25,
    27, 28 [areas of loops, not discussed in the text! A=4.05];
    (hor/vert tangents: plot with a = 1),
    (6 Pi a^2); 31 (18), 40 (perfect square! 0.9).

  55. W: checking a solution of a differential equation;
    history:  hbar? [ellipse area]

    [optional glance: Spaghetti curves? How an innocent math problem can  lead to crazy stuff.]

  56. @ Th: Last Class; CATS at beginning of class (instructions: Blackboard);
    discussion of final exam on Chapter 10:
    areas enclosed by parametrized curves or polar curves, arclengths in both contexts, vertical and horizontal tangents, tangent lines of parametric curves or polar curves.

    We made it! party cats (party cats!)

Weeks 3 and 4 or 5 or earlier: come by and find me in my office, spend 5 minutes, tell me how things are going. This is a required visit.
If you are having troubles, don't wait to see me.
