(Math 115)Homework (DUE 3/23)

Hi all,

Please correct your tests if you have not done so yet.

I noticed a lot of questions on composition of functions, so here is a video to help you. Know that composition of functions is not a trivial topic, and we can tackle it  as long as we are patient and careful (you can tackle all math problems in the class if you are patient and careful!).

Reading assignment: Section 3.1, 3.3 (please make sure to read them!)

Problems to hand in:

Section 3.2: 2,4,6,8,10,12,1420,22,26,28

Section 3.3: 1,2,4,6,9,10, 16,18,25,26

Happy Pi Day!!

Today is the \pi-day, and here are some cool things to check out:

Interview with Terence Tao from Numberphile.

If you like to estimate \pi yourself with the Monte Carlo method, this is a fun video to check out. Try to write a code and see how fast you get 100 digits of \pi.

Oh finally, eat some pie for sure.

Update: Just heard you can also compute \pi with coprime numbers. Here is a video.

(115)Homework 4(DUE 3/9)

Hi all,

I know completing the squares is always kind of strange, so make sure to read section 2.3 to gain a good understanding of the material. Quiz correction is due Tuesday, before 4.30pm.

Please make sure to hand in any type of extra credit problems to me, *not* with your normal homework.

We will be having a test on Thursday, so look at your quiz, worksheets from class and homework for reviewing. Make appointments to go over things you are not confident about. I should be fairly available after Monday.

Here is the set of homework due Thursday:

3.1: 1, 4, 5, 14, 20, 22, 26, 28, 59, 60
