Introducing Aarish Kumar

Hello Readers, my name is Aarish Kumar and I’m here to get the credit and some mathematical knowledge from the class while pursuing a bachelor’s in computer engineering tech and I’ve already completed the 2 years, associate degree. After completing this math course, I’m planning on taking linear algebra as according to my degree works online. After graduating from city tech, I plan to get into the workforce regarding what I like doing in regards to working in a team for possibly a project in the near future to improve systems functionality in society or to just innovate something out-of-this-world someday. My hobbies usually include reading comics such as the manga as many who read this are already aware of the popularity it has everywhere. I’m also a fan of gaming usually at my own genres of gaming which I enjoy, am also very organized when needed, and am deeply interested in how the mind works, namely the psychological aspect of it. I am also normally open-minded about ideas and norms and not very critical about most ideas or beliefs and I enjoy learning different perspectives of what others may have to offer. I’m also pretty good at offering solutions to most situations and am extremely prideful of personal belongings. Once in my lifetime, I was afraid of high depth defying drops such as roller coasters and am finally free of this free by having the courage to ride one of extreme height, such as the Kingda Ka in Six Flags and the Steel Force in Dorney Park. My favorite book is or was literally The Last Book in the Universe hence the name. Lastly, my favorite animal would be the owl.

Math is one of my favorite subjects, and I am hoping i will still be able to say that at the end of this semester. I enjoy video games and reading. For someone who hates early classes I don’t know what I am doing in this one. For now I just hope to pass this class.

Upcoming Webwork

The following sets are due next Tuesday at 11:59pm:

  • Definite Integrals
  • FTC Part I
  • FTC Part II

Remember to use the definition of a definite integral from today’s class and not the one from the text (which uses a section of the text we haven’t covered yet).

Remember that the text and Webwork disagree about which is the first and which is the second fundamental theorem. We used the text’s ordering in today’s class.

The exercises in the FTC Part I set are straightforward applications of the (second) fundamental theorem. We’ll look at an example in class on Monday, but you should get started on this set before then.

Most of the exercises in the FTC Part II set are straightforward applications of the (first) fundamental theorem and similar to the example from today’s class. On Monday, we’ll look at a less straightforward example (like problem #10) in class, so you should make sure you’re familiar with the straightforward ones at the beginning of the set.
