Welcome to Math 242

  • A good (and free) wxMaxima lab manual.

  • Chapters 16 and 17 of the text. We will cover sections 16.2, 17.1 and 17.2.
  • The link on the upper left has Suggested study problems from both Webwork and the book.
  • Trig Substitutions Cheat Sheet
  • Series Convergence Tests Sheet
  • Convergence Tests from Harvey Mudd College But note in the divergence test it should say: if \(lim_{k\to\infty} a_k \neq 0\) then \(\sum_1^\infty a_k\) diverges. They forgot the "not equal".
  • Here are some suggested practice problems:
    • 7.1: 19, 21, 31.
    • 7.2: 7-49 (odds)
    • 7.3: 15-21 (odds), 31.
    • 7.4: 1, 3, 7, 23, 25, 43-83 (odds).
    • 7.5: 5, 7, 11, 13, 21, 23.
    • 7.6: 1-23 (odds), 41, 45, 49, 55.
    • 8.1: 1-21 (odds).
    • 8.2: 1-13 (odds).
    • 8.3: 1-21 (odds).
    • 8.4: 1-37 (odds).
    • 8.7: 1-21, 47, 51, 53 (odds).

  • WeBWorK is available now.

  • Learning Emporium: Free tutoring, Bilger 209, open most of the time.

  • My Math 241 site. If you need review of Calc I, this is good place. The link Homework and Practice has study problems for the 241 midterms and final, both from the book and WeBWorK. The answers are shown when you do one of these WeBWorK problems.
  • Supplimental Instruction Course Math 242 SI

  • This is a special Supplemental Instruction course (Math 242 SI, MW 2:30 - 3:20 pm, Keller 404), to go along with Math 242. It was very successful last semester, as many of you know. It has been tried on the mainland and proved very successful for calculus students. We are lucky that this course is geared to go along with our class. You are highly encouraged sign up for this class. The SI leader will be T. J. Combs (tjcombs92@gmail.com). More details.
