WebWork — Sunday, September 28 and Tuesday, September 30

In Monday’s class we’ll finally get back to instantaneous rates of change and slopes of tangent lines. Now we know all about evaluating limits, so we won’t have to go through creating these tables of values to guess the slopes of tangent lines. On Monday we’ll work through material from 3.1 and 3.2 of your text. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), there are only four problems on the corresponding WebWork set DerivativeDefinition. So WebWork won’t really give you enough practice and you’ll want to make sure to work through all of the assigned textbook exercises as well, to make sure you know what you’re doing. You should also try out the exercises from the WebWork set DerivativeFunction after Monday’s class. You won’t officially know what the “power rule” is yet, but you can do those problems without the power rule. We’ll see the power rule for the first time the Monday after next.

  1. DerivativeDefintion is due Sunday, September 28
  2. DerivativeFunction is due Tuesday, September 30
