Posted in 2018 -- MAT B41, Lecture Notes, Uncategorized by pgadey on 2018/05/08
First class tonight. Come on out! Tutorials next week. The Pre-Course Survey is available here.

Additional resources:

Suggested Exercises:

  • Section 1.1 Vectors in Two- and Three-Dimensional Space: 1, 4, 7, 10, 11, 13, 15, 25, 27, 28
  • Section 1.2 The Inner Product, Length, and Distance: 1, 6, 7, 8, 15, 19, 25

Past Term Tests:

2016 Term Test: Let \ell_1 be the line through (0,1,1) and (-1,2,1); let \pi be the plane through (0,1,1), (0,1,0), and (-2,-1,-1); and let \ell_2 be the line orthogonal to \pi and passing through (4,0,1).

  1. Give both a normal form equation for \pi and a parametric description for \pi.
  2. Give parametric descriptions for the lines \ell_1 and \ell_2.
  3. Determine whether the line \ell_2 meets the plane \pi.
  4. Determine whether there is a plane containing the lines \ell_1 and \ell_2. If there is a plane, find its equation.

2015 Term Test: Let \pi be the plane through (-1,0,2), (1,3,1), and (2,1,-1).

  1. Give a normal form equation for \pi.
  2. Give a parametric description of the line \ell through (0,0,1) and orthogonal to \pi.
  3. Where does \ell meet \pi?

Notes:

Parker’s notes might contain more material than covered was covered in lecture. If you take PDF notes of class, please send them to Parker and help the whole class out! You can ask to have your name included or not.
