ANNOUNCEMENTS

YOU ARE EXPECTED TO CHECK THE ANNOUNCEMENTS DAILY.

  1. I strongly encourage you to work with "study buddies."

  2. You are expected to review your lecture notes before each lecture. (For example, when I ask specific questions about the previous lecture, you should be able to answer them without looking at your notes.)

  3. You should have all electronic devices (phones, i-whatevers, MP3 players, ear-buds, etc.) completely turned off and stowed before coming to class. Recording devices are strictly prohibited. Using electronic devices during class without my permission may result in their being confiscated and in academic discipline.

  4. If you miss a class, you should obtain copies of the lecture notes from a classmate.

  5. How much should a college student study?

 

  1. Review Problems. April 4

  2. Do all the examples in the first Maple tutorial entitled Basics. April 4
    1. Do not use the shortcut menu buttons in the left panel of Maple. Rather, manually type the commands as they appear in the Maple examples.
    2. You should work all assigned Maple examples immediately to help you prepare for the Maple assignments.
    3. There also may be Maple related questions on exams.

    Kettering has made Maple amply available on many PCs throughout the AB.

  3. Section 10.1 – Parametric Representations of Curves. April 6
    NOTE: I also posted examples there.

  4. Section 10.2 – Calculus with Parametric Curves. April 8
    I will finish this section on Monday, but you should do what you can asap.

    You should be finished with Assignment 2 by now.

  5. Do all the examples in the second Maple tutorial entitled Solutions of Equations. April 13
    You should complete Assignment 2 before doing this. Remember that these assignments will acquaint (or reacquaint) you with Maple and prepare you for the Maple assignments.

  6. Section 10.3 – Polar Coordinates. April 13
    I will do more on Thursday.

  7. Maple Assignment 1.    posted Friday, April 15
    Due Wednesday, April 20 at the beginning of class. Recall that late submissions are NOT accepted.

  8. Section 10.4 – Areas in Polar Coordinates. April 18

  9. Section 12.1 – 3-D Cartesian (Rectangular) Coordinates. April 20

  10. Section 12.2 – Vectors in 2-D and 3-D Cartesian (Rectangular) Coordinates. April 21

Facie (noun)   \'fā • cē,    'fay • see\    pl. facies   \'fā • cēz,    'fay • seez\ :
  1. an image of one's face taken by oneself or by another person using a digital camera or phone,
    especially for posting on social networking sites or smartphones for personal identification.
  2. a photo ID showing only the face.
First Known Use of FACIE – 16:34 UTC, October 12, 2014 by Kevin G. TeBeest, Michigan USA
Formerly:   "profile photo" (archaic)
Usage:  Professor TeBeest sent a photo of himself playing his drums to his brother who wanted a photo ID for his smartphone. The brother whined saying, "Send me a photo of your ugly face you stupid. . .!" So Professor TeBeest sent his brother a facie.
Etymology:  French façade ("a false, superficial, or artificial appearance or effect," Merriam–Webster); Italian facciata, a derivative of faccia ("front"), from Latin facies ("face");
Geographical Use:  worldwide
Not to be confused with selfie, which is a photo taken by oneself of one's own body or part of the body, usually due to vanity.
The photo on your state driving license is an example of a facie.

Inform your friends and family! Let's make it go viral. Start using it in conversations and online and explain it when they ask you what it means. It's fun!

 


Remember that:

  1. You are responsible for successfully completing all assigned problems in all your courses.
  2. The exams may include problems similar to these assignments and lecture examples and may include questions about Maple.
  3. We must maintain a steady pace to cover the material that constitutes Math-203. If you have difficulty with a section, be sure to see me for help immediately.
  4. No matter how simple a topic appears when you see my examples or read the text, you will almost certainly have difficulty completing an exam if you do not practice the examples and do the assignments beforehand.
Tutors are available in the SARC (AB 3-341) and at various other places and times.
