Whitman College Calculus

The Wikibooks Calculus textbook is pretty good, too.

Here is a link to NAU policy statements, and the math department policies. These are part of the printed syllabus for our course, but are not in the on-line version of our syllabus.

Introduction to WeBWorK at NAU.

Because CEFNS paid for a site license, you can now get *Mathematica* on your own computer!
Details are at http://nau.edu/CEFNS/IT/Wolfram-Mathematica/.

This is a good webcast introducing you to
*Mathematica*.

Flyer for FAMUS (Friday Afternoon Undergraduate Math Seminar): Friday at 3 pm in AMB 164.

The MAP Room -- AMB 137

This is a good place to do the WeBWorK. There are Peer Math Assistants (PMAs) that can help you.
You can go there before or after class with your friends and work on WeBWorK together.

COMPUTER LAB OPEN HOURS --- AMB 222

M-Th 9:00am - 5:00pm, F 9:00am - 4:00pm,
except when the lab has been reserved at least a day in advance for use by a class.
This has more computers available than the MAP room, but no tutors to help.

The current Problem of the Week is posted here. You get extra credit for our course from points earned in the problem of the week. Check out the display at the bottom of the big stairs.

Here is a picture of some partial sums of the Taylor series of ln(1+x) = x - x

Here is a picture of some partial sums of the Taylor series of 1/(1+x

Here is a picture of some partial sums of the Taylor series of arctan(x) = x - x

Here is a pictuse of some partial sums of the Taylor series of cos(x) = 1 - x

Here is a graph of y = cosh(x) and y = sinh(x).
Here are my figures of several catenaries.
(See wikipedia on Catenary).
"Catenary"
comes from the Latin word for "chain".
The St. Louis Arch, more propely called the Gateway Arch,
is approximately an upside down catenary: y = -a cosh(x/a) + b.
A catenoid is obtained by
rotating a catenary y = a cosh(x/a) about the x axis. Here is my Matehmatica deomonstration of
a catenoid

The hyperbolic sine and cosine are defined by

First day in class: Review problems on Differentiation and Integration, and the scanned solutions (with one solved problem using partial fractions that is not part of the review).

Here are some places to get help as you review Differentiation and Integration skills:

Visual Calculus by Lawrence S. Husch at
Knoxville. This has some good tutorials.
