Dear Students,

Here is the information about the final exam:

  • The exam is cumulative from the beginning of the year to the end. (See the course syllabus for coverage of topics)
  • 20% of the exam questions are very similar to questions from the *mini-list*.
  • We have not chosen exact questions from the big list on purpose, but we strongly recommend them as a great source of practice problems.
  • There are 14 questions on the exam: 6 questions worth 10 points each & 8 questions worth 5 points each.
  • 25% of the questions use the word "prove" in their statements.

    Good luck with your preparations!

    Dear Students,

    We have uploaded Test 3 from last year's course, in the "Notes and Uploads" section of the website.

    (Update: please note that there is a missing absolute value sign in Q7 of last year's test. In the third bullet, there should be an absolute value around the partial derivative. Its absolute value should be less than or equal to 1.)

    It is recommended that you use it as extra practice in preparation for this year's Test 3.

    Please note:

  • Past tests' topics don't necessarily correspond in an exact manner to this year's test topics.
  • For example, Q5 from last year's Test 3 (on the mean value theorem) is not a topic that is on this year's Test 3.

    Sufficiently Small Terminology

    Posted: Saturday, January 14, 01:01PM

    Dear Students,

    The terms "big" and "small" refer to the magnitude of a number. For example saying that "a is sufficiently small" means that the "magnitude of a is small". That is, "a is close to 0".

    For example, this applies to Q4 on Big List #11.

    Published by: Elio Mazzeo

    Supplementary Notes & Tests

    Posted: Tuesday, January 10, 03:55PM

    We have decided to make the supplementary notes recommended (but not required) reading material for students. Of course, you will still be responsible for any topics that are covered in Tyler's notes if there is overlap. For example, Optimization and Lagrange Multipliers are in the Tyler's notes.

    This will apply to Test 3 as well, and I have edited the test announcement below to reflect the change.

    I recommend that you still read the supplementary notes, as they elaborate on the topics, and will lead you to have a deeper understanding of the material, and hopefully to do better on the tests as a result.

    Published by: Elio Mazzeo

    Test 3 Material

    Posted: Tuesday, January 10, 03:51PM

    Test 3 will cover the following material:

  • Tyler's course notes from sections 1.8(Uniform Continuity) 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 & 3.1.
  • Your professor's notes from class on the topics of parametrizations (namely parametrizations of curves and surfaces, tangent vectors, spherical coordinates).

    The exercises relevant to studying are:

  • The big list problem sets #'s 8,9,10,11.
  • (More practice can be found in the mini list problem sets #'s 8,9,10,11)
  • Q#12 on Problem Set #5 (involves the concept of Uniform Continuity)
  • Q#4 on Problem Set #7 (on Spherical Coordinates)
  • The Extra "Potter" Problem Set 9.75 (On topic of Parametrizations and Uniform Continuity)

    Good luck with your studying!

    Mini Problems & Test 3

    Posted: Tuesday, January 10, 03:30PM

    Dear Students,

    For Test 3, we do not guarantee to ask an exact problem from the Mini-List (or slight modification thereof), as we have been doing with the Big-List.

    For future tests, however, we may choose to do this.

    In other words, for future tests (i.e. Tests 4 & 5), "the rule of 25%" of the questions being slight modifications of the Big List will apply to the Big and Mini Lists together.

    I still recommend you work on the Mini-List in your preparations for Test 3, as extra practice.

    Good luck with your studying!

    Potter Problem Set 9.75

    Dear Students,

    Last, but not least, please take a look at the "Potter Problem Set 9.75". It can be found under the "Notes" section of the course. It deals with the topics of "parametrizations and uniform continuity". It should be considered as an extra big list problem set.

    They can be found under the "Notes" section of the course.

    For each "Big List", there will be a corresponding "Mini List". I envision that these problems will be very useful, particularly (but not exclusively) for practice for the final exam.
