Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11:00-12:00. You can also drop by at another time if you have a quick question.
If these times don't work, let me know and we can find a time that does work!
Here is a video of the notes for the day's class:
A couple people missed class on Wednesday due to the surprise snow storm. To help everyone stay on track, I made an extra recording of the day's material using my computer.
This is my first recording, so there's a bit of background noise -- I'll use a better microphone next time. Let me know if you have any questions or other suggestions!
To get a good gut feeling for the graphs of exponential functions with different bases, try playing around with this interactive graphic
You can also explore general exponential functions using a graphing calculator or computer algebra system and this worksheet. This was created using a free and open source computer algebra system called Sage.
You will need both the textbook and a WebAssign access key. The University Bookstore sells a bundle that contains both the book and the WebAssign access code. Using a link below, you can also buy the bundle online for a slightly lower price. Books purchased from other sources might not contain an access code, which can be expensive to buy on its own.
The following is adapted from the Storrs Website:You can buy the bundled version of Calculus Early Transcendentals, Single Variable by James Stewart either at the UConn Coop or online directly from the publisher (linked below). Both the text and the Webassign code are required for this course.
The unbundled version of the book (that is, the book without a WebAssign access code) can be obtained in many places, but the cost of buying the unbundled text and the WebAssign code separately may be significantly greater.
There are three ways to purchase the text and the WebAssign access code:How can you decide which version of the text to buy?
