MAT B41 — Week 5

Posted in 2018 -- MAT B41, Lecture Notes, Uncategorized by pgadey on 2018/06/05

Mock Midterm this Friday 12-2pm in IC 130. Midterm Test next week!

Several people asked about Question 7 off of Homework #3. The intent of the question was for f(u,v) to be undefined. This is different from the textbook, where the function f(u,v) is given explicitly. You may write \frac{\partial f}{\partial u} and \frac{\partial f}{\partial v} without knowing the function f(u,v).

Additional resources:

Suggested Exercises:

  • 3.1 Iterated Partial Derivatives: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 14, 15, 16
  • 3.2 Taylor’s Theorem: 1, 2, 5, 9

Past Term Tests:

2016 Term Test:
Give the 4th degree Taylor polynomial about the origin of f(x,y) = e^{-xy} \arctan(x).

2015 Term Test:

  • Compute the 4th degree Taylor polynomial about the origin of f(x,y) = e^{y^2} \sin(x+y).
  • Find the linear approximation to the function f(x,y) = \frac{x+2}{4y-2} at the point (2,3) and use it to estimate f(2.1, 2.9).
