## Quiz 2 Results

Below find the results. You are identified by the last four digits of your student number unless you are excelling. The marks are out of 2.5 percentage points. Your best eight quizzes go to the 20% mark for quizzes. The R % column is your running percentage (for best eight quizzes). The QPP is your Quiz Percentage Points. MPP is your Maple percentage points. GPP is your gross percentage points. One student didn’t write down their name for Quiz 1. They should email me.

## Quiz 3 Question Bank

Question bank for Quiz 3 (in Week 4) is as follows:

- P. 35, Q.1-4, 7,8, 10 (yes, again)
- P. 50, Q. 1 (i) and (ii)

If you have any specific difficulties with these questions, please email me. Alternatively use Maple or *Wolfram Alpha *to help. Your Quiz 3 Questions will be taken from these. The final answers will not be given on the quiz paper and neither is there any value in writing down the final answers alone — you will receive marks for full and correct solutions — but nothing for final answers without justification or skipping important steps. No hints will appear either. Please don’t learn off model solutions — you need to understand the material not just on a superficial level to do well later on.

Quiz 3 runs from 19:00 to 19:15 *sharp *on Wednesday 22 February.

## Maple Labs

The next Maple Lab is 1 March.

## Week 3

We started Partial Differentiation which we will eventually use to do Error Analysis.

In Maple we did some basic plotting, differentiation and integration.

## Week 4

We will finish off Chapter 1.

## Plan

**Week 3:**Maple Lab 1 & Section 1.4**Week 4:**Section 1.4 & Section 1.5**Week 5:**Maple Lab 2 & Section 2.1**Week 6:**Section 2.2 & Sections 3.1-3.3**Week 7:**Maple Lab 3 & Sections 3.1-3.3**Week 8:**Maple Lab 4 & Section 3.4**Week 9:**Section 3.4**Week 10:**Maple Lab 5 & Section 3.4- ————-EASTER————–
**Week 11:**Maple Test & Section 3.4**Week 12:**Section 3.5- ————-END OF LECTURES———-
**Week 13:**Review Class — Summer 2015 Paper

## Academic Learning Centre

I would urge anyone having any problems with the material to use the Academic Learning Centre. You will get best results if you come to the helpers there with *specific *questions.

## Study

Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage. Anyone can give me exercises they have done and I will correct them. I also advise that you visit the Academic Learning Centre.

## Student Resources

Please see the Student Resources tab on the top of this page for information on the Academic Learning Centre, etc..

Michael FerriterHey jp.

Can I mail you pics of some of the problems I’m having.

Thanks

February 16, 2017 at 9:12 pm

J.P. McCarthyMichael,

No problem.

Email away… I should get back to you tomorrow.

michaelIn Q.8 P.35 how does ∫ tanθ.dθ get to log|secθ|

February 19, 2017 at 1:23 pm

Sean O'ReillyMick the anti-derivitive of tanθ is log|secθ|. It’s not in the tables so it’s something you will need to know. The anti-derivitive of dθ is 1 so you just lose that and your left with log|secθ|. That’s my understanding of it anyway.

Sean O'ReillyMy bad Mick it is in the tables!!

February 20, 2017 at 1:24 pm

J.P. McCarthyMichael,

Sean is correct but not when he says that the antiderivative of is one. The anti-derivative of doesn’t really make sense but we do have

.

This isn’t even saying that the anti-derivative of is but in fact:

i.e. the anti-derivative of with respect to is … as:

.

See https://jpmccarthymaths.com/2017/02/09/math6037-spring-2017-week-2/#comment-5857 to understand the notation better…

Regarding the anti-derivative of … OK step one says look in the tables and it is the tables…

…

Suppose it wasn’t in the tables… we would have to try a manipulation… so we have:

.

Now I don’t know of any other useful manipulations… and we have no quotient rule so I could try a substitution. For two reasons (it is ‘inside’ the ‘one-over’ and also its derivative is a multiple of ) I pick . This gives

:

.

Now we use the following property of logs that they turn powers into multiplication:

to write

,

by the definition of .

As you can see, it is a good idea that we put it in the tables!!

J.P.

Sean O'ReillyHi J.P,

Do you have a link where we could download maple Please?

Cheers,

Sean

J.P. McCarthySean,

Go to the webpage and go to the Student Resources tab.

The relevant information is in there.

StudentFor Q.1 (ii) when differentiating wr t, when is the power does it remain as because looking at the solution it remains as .

Regards.

February 20, 2017 at 1:10 pm

J.P. McCarthyOK, using the linear property of differentiation, we can differentiate term-by-term and pull out constants. Recall that with respect to that is a constant:

.

Now the exponential function is defined as the function which is A) equal to its own derivative and B) equal to one at zero. Therefore the exponential function is its own derivative so we have:

.
