So on ** Thursday ** the ** Tutorial **
project is due.

What to hand in and do:

- Do the whole project, you will learn something.
- The project must be done in groups or 2 or 3, (or 4 by special arrangement with TA and myself).
- Hand in a printout of the exercise at the end.
- Only one printout is to be turned in per group.
- All perople in the group must appear named at the begining of the project. These names cannot be just handwritten in, but must appear in the electronic file.
- Be prepared to produce the Electronic version of the printout if requested.
- The printout should contain your names, and should include enought english so that the project can be easily followed by someone unfamiliar with it.
- In other words, the project should appear something like "TutoriaL" itself.

Aside-- Why I prefer Mathematica..

To be quite frank, I despise MapLev. (or is it MapleV?). It has
inconsistent syntax, no proper naming conventions, inconsistent
semantics, and in general is a poorly designed language.
Mathematica, on the other hand is completely consistent. Every
part of it uses the same naming conventions, the syntax is consistent
across the whole language, and as a result, ** once you know
a little Mathematica, you know the whole language **. All you
have to know is the names of the new functions, and since there are no
abbreviations, it is trivial to guess.

OTOH, in Maple, once you have learned a part of the language, you know much less. Every new function that you learn has a different unguessable abbreviation.

Plus at conferences, the Maple people don't smile a lot. And Jerry Uhl has better parties. :-)

If you know of any real advantages to Maple, other than the fact that it is included in the student software package, please let me know EMAIL me at morley@math.gatech.edu. I am serious about this, and am willing to listen.

One Hour Test This Thursday: 1/2 old, 1/2 new.

- Floor
- Absolute Values
- Limits
- Definition of Derivatives and it use.

NewStuff

- Rules for differentiation
- Sum of derivative
- The derivative of a constant times a function
- Product Rul
- Quotient rule

- Drawing derivatives from pictures of functions.

So.. what do you have to know for the quiz?

- The definition of a derivative
- Using the definition of a derivative to calculate derivatives.
- The uses of the derivative:
- slope of tangents
- Limite s of slopes of secants
- velocity
- rates of change
- etc.....
- etc.....
- etc ....

- Computing limits
- "Filling in" functions so that they are continuous
- And surely some stuff I've forgoten to write down here ...

- Section 1.5, page 94, Numbers 1,3,5,19,21,*23
- Section 1.6, page 111, Numbers 1,3,7,6,11,13

If there are any questions the simpliest way to
get a hold of me is:

- 4 or 5 quizes given on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Each 1/2 hour. The lowest will be dropped. 55%
- One hour quiz given the fourth week. Counts as 2 quizes, and is included in the 55% above.
- Computer assignments. Two. For a total of 10%
- Homework. Collected by the TA and checked 10%
- Final exam. Date is set by the registrar's office. Be sure and take this into consideration before you book plane tickets to leave town. 25%

** General comments: ** I realize that some of you all
have have calculus before. This is a good, right and proper thing,
and my sister Mary mmorley@ets.org
would approve. There will be considerable overlap between AP calculus
and this course. But the pupose of this course is not the same as AP
calculus:

The mechanics of calculation, by hand, calculator, or computer are still important, but not in and of themselves. They are tools.

There is no such thing as a stupid question. Yell them out!

If something confuses you, raise you hand and shout out to the world that the person sitting next to you doesn't understand! :-)

If you have not had Calculus before, that is also OK. Rest assured that this course does not presume any knowledge from AB or BC calculus.
