WHAT NOW?

• SOLUTIONS TO THE FINAL NOW UP: Final ... Solutions

• CLASS ANNOUNCEMENTS

• COMMENT ON THE FINAL: The Final will not have elaborate, complicated “word problems” such as two-car problems from 3.8.  Keep this in mind as you design your sheet of notes for Part 2 of the Final.  However, position / velocity / acceleration problems are fair for the Final.

• FREE STEM WORKSHOPS! http://www.sdmesa.edu/STEMworkshops

• TRY NetTutor FOR FREE!: Free guided assistance, though wait times may be long (maybe 50 minutes). Go to the 4th floor of the LRC (library) and see someone at MT2C, or email Tony Ho at tho@sdccd.edu

• TUTORING HOURS AT MT2C (4TH FLOOR OF LIBRARY / LRC)

New Hours                    9 am – 8 pm  Mon – Th

Online tutoring assistance for Math, English, CISC, Chemistry, and Physics: contact Niko Crumpton for assistance: ncrumpton@sdccd.edu

• Tutoring closed Friday, 3/24 and also Spring Break (3/27-4/1)

No appointments necessary.  The service is FREE!  We invite students to come in and study.  Sign your name when you need help. There may be a short wait, but we are in the process of hiring more tutors which should expedite the tutoring process.

• BECOMING A TUTOR: Contact Sim Barhoum (sbarhoum@sdccd.edu) to enroll in one of our training courses.  Tutors can make up to $11.71/hour

• IF YOU NEED PRECALCULUS REVIEW, TRY THE MATH 15s! OR JUST TRY ALEKS ON YOUR OWN…

• ALEKS GETTING STARTED: Orientation Quick Tips (.pdf) … Orientation PowerPoint (.ppt) … Registration - No Code

If you want a Precalculus refresher, tell this to the 15DEF instructor.

They’re great, 1-unit, online, ALEKS-based, self-paced refreshers that have helped many students. 15E is trig; 15F is college algebra. A “no-pass” does not affect GPA, though it does appear on your transcript; it’s mostly a problem if you’re on academic probation. 15E includes 15D (geometry). Instead of enrolling in both 15E and 15F, contact the instructor, and s/he may be able to make arrangements with you to just enroll in one class.

These are offered a couple of times throughout the semester. You could take more than one in one semester! Get a good foundation for your classes!

• Printing Suggestions for Typed Files

I recommend two-page-to-a-side and/or double-sided printing to save paper. If the typed print is too small, try something like Page Setup: Scale: 110% or 105%, unless print gets cut off (100% may be better for handwritten notes). Color printing is nice, but B&W printing is cheaper.

These are pdf files. You can get the free Adobe Reader at http://www.adobe.com. Get a version that is compatible with your system!

• Class Notes

Many students benefit from printing the notes for a lecture beforehand, reviewing them, and commenting on them in class.

You may want to take personalized “sketch notes” in class.

TABLE OF CONTENTS (for Swokowski; my Chapters 1 and 2 are different)

• CORRECTIONS

Page 1.10: Example 7 deals with the square root function, not the squaring function. Also, -9 (instead of 9) is not in the domain of f.

Page 2.1.14: The answer (limit value) for Example 9 is 1.

Page 2.5.8: The last Limit Form more precisely yields 0+.
