I am emailing a link of this to everyone on the class list every Friday afternoon. If you are not receiving these emails or want to have them sent to another email address feel free to email me at jpmccarthymaths@gmail.ie and I will add you to the mailing list.

Homework

Please find the Homework. Before you open it don’t be too alarmed: you only have to do ONE of the NINE options. All of the options are about differential calculus:

  1. Nowhere-Continuous Functions
  2. Intermediate Value Theorem
  3. Fixing Nasty Functions and Making them Nice
  4. Summarise Limits & Continuity
  5. “Leaving Cert Questions”
  6. L’Hopital’s Rule
  7. Linear Algebra
  8. Summarise Differentiation
  9. Extrema of Functions of Several Variables with an Application to Statistics — contains a typo. Q.9 (a) should read “Show that (1, 1) and (−1,- 1) are local minima…” not “Show that (1, 1) and (−1, 1) are local minima…”. Also you can find the partial derivatives \frac{\partial S}{\partial m} and \frac{\partial S}{\partial c} without multiplying out S(m,c)

I am not going to pretend that this is an easy assignment, but I will say that clear and logical thinking will reveal that the solutions and answers aren’t ridiculously difficult: a keen understanding of the principles of differential calculus should see you through.

Roughly, I have gone with less thinking & more writing or more thinking & less writing but half the battle here is picking an option that you think you can do well.

The final date for submission is 01 February 2013 and you can hand up early if you want. You will be submitting to the big box at the School of Mathematical Science. If I were you I would aim to get it done and dusted early.

Note that you are will be free to collaborate with each other and use references but this must be indicated on your hand-up in a declaration. Evidence of copying or plagiarism will result in divided marks or no marks respectively. You will not receive diminished marks for declared collaboration or referencing although I demand originality of presentation. If you have a problem interpreting any question feel free to approach me, comment on the webpage or email.

Ensure to put your name, student number, module code (MS 2001), and your declaration on your homework.
