Fall 2015 TEST III SOLUTIONS

I have created a wikipedia assignment for extra credit (max. 50 points). It is mainly intended for graduating seniors but if you are struggling in the class you can do it also. If you currently have an A or B in the class I may not give you the extra credit. It is due by the 25th.
Click here to enrol in the wikipedia assignment page. After enrolling, choose an article to work on. It should be related to integrals and area under curve. There is support available on the wiki page for selecting article and asking questions. START WORKING RIGHT AWAY BECAUSE THIS CANNOT BE DONE AT THE LAST MINUTE!

Updated 4/12/2016
For family reasons I will be unable to be there for friday's class and hence will have to cancel it. So instead of a quiz this week you can submit the following problems as homework, also for 40 points. No credit will be provided for correct answers (which are in textbook) unless step by step solutions are given.
Some of these problems will appear in Test 3. We will go over problems very similar to these in class. Also I will be in office 10 to 1 on friday to help with the homework.This hw is due in class monday 4/18

Video elaborating on friday's class: Limit process explained using slope of tangent and the number e
It is not quite professional grade ( :-) ) but I hope it helps you understand the material. Your feedback is welcome.
Note that according to the mean value theorem to be discussed later, there will be secants whose slope equal to that of the tangent, but what is a coincidence is that for a parabola these secants go through points at same distance on either side, at each point.
Very simple questions based on material in video might appear in next Quiz.
Examples: The slope of the tangent at a point is the limit of the slope of what lines?
Show that the slope of certain secant lines on the parabola is exactly equal to that of the tangent line at a point.

Youtube video showing how to approximate pi (or area of circle of radius 1 or half the perimeter of same circle) using polygons.
In the first part they show the theory and how to find the perimeter of various polygons (squares, pentagons, hexagons,...) that approximate the circle. Lot of formulae in this part.
In the last part they make a neat spreadsheet with perimeters for the different polygons as you increase the number of sides.
This is a great illustration of the limit process because you can see clearly how the polygons kind of merge with the circle at the same time as their perimeter approaches pi times their "diameter."

For our first meeting on 1/11:
Please do the diagnostic test in the textbook (just before "Preview of calculus") to make sure you are prepared for course.
