I'll use Maple syntax for mathematical notation on this page.
All section and page numbers refer to sections from Ostebee/Zorn, Vol 1.
Due Wednesday 5/2 at 8am
Section 5.4 : Approximating Sums: The Integral as a Limit
- To read:
Through page 381
- Be sure to understand:
The figures on page 381
E-mail Subject Line: Math 101 Your Name 5/4
Reading questions:
Let f(x)=x^{2} and let I represent the integral of f from x=0 to x=3.
- Estimate I by finding L_{3}, the left sum with 3 equal subintervals.
- Estimate I by finding R_{3}, the right sum with 3 equal subintervals.
Reminder:
- Look at PS 13 (individual). This problem set will not be turned in, but you are responsible for the material it covers.
Due Friday 5/4 at 8am
Section 5.4: Approximating Sums
- To read: Re-read this section
Finish
- Be sure to understand:
The definition of a Riemann sum and the definition of the integral as a limit on page 383.
E-mail Subject Line: Math 101 Your Name 5/4
Reading questions:
Let f(x)=x^{2} and let I represent the integral of f from x=0 to x=3.
- Will L_{n} underestimate or overestimate I? Why?
- Will R_{n} underestimate or overestimate I? Why?
Reminder:
- Again: the final is Wednesday 5/9 at 2pm.
- You may have a "cheat sheet" on the final, but the same rules apply as before: it still must be front only, handwritten (by you) -- i.e. no shrinking your three previous ones onto one sheet! and standard sized paper.
Here ends the reading for the semester!
