Posted in 2018 -- MAT B41, Lecture Notes, Uncategorized by pgadey on 2018/06/12

Term Test is this Friday. Reading week is next week!

We have a modified class schedule this week.

Term Test Policy

From the Course Syllabus, we have the following policy:

The Term Test will be written outside of regular lecture hours. If you cannot attend reasons of creed or religion, then you will must contact Parker as early as possible to arrange for an alternative sitting. If you miss the midterm test for medical reasons, you must contact Parker within 24 hours of the test.

You will need to send a UTSC Verification of Student Illness or Injury form:

Students who miss the midterm test will be asked to provide the Verification Form and a timetable for the next five days. You will be given only one opportunity to write the make-up test.

Parker scheduled to the midterm to avoid Ramadan, but he forgot about Eid Al-Fitr. If you want to celebrate Eid with your family, instead of writing the midterm at the usual time, please contact Parker immediately.

The Week after Reading Week!

Parker will be traveling to STLHE 2018 and the IBL Workshop.

Our Tuesday evening lecture will be delivered by Ivan Khatchatourian.

Our Thursday morning lecture will be delivered by Ray Grinnell.

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).

MAT B41 — Week 4

Posted in 2018 -- MAT B41, Lecture Notes, Uncategorized by pgadey on 2018/05/29

Homework 2 is due! Homework 3 (tex) is now available.

Midterm information:

  • Mock Term Test Friday 8 June @ 12:00-2:00 PM in IC-130
  • Real Term Test Friday 15 June @ 3:00-5:00 PM in IC-130/230

All questions regarding format, question allocation, style of test, will be addressed by the Mock Term Test. I highly recommend you attend the Mock Term Test, because it will be the perfect preparation for the Real Term Test. More information will be available early next week.

In order to prepare for the Term Test, I recommend attempting the suggested exercises.
Additional resources:

Suggested Exercises:

  • 2.3 Differentiation: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 19, 22, 24, 25 (Do as much as possible.)
  • 2.5 Properties of Derivatives: 2, 3, 6, 14, 17
  • 2.6 Gradients and Directional Derivatives: 1, 4, 6, 10, 11, 19

Past Term Tests:

2016 Term Test: Let f: \mathbb{R}^2 \rightarrow \mathbb{R} be given by f(x,y) = (x+y)/x^2.

  1. Find an equation for the tangent plane to the graph z = f(x,y) at the point (2,3,f(2,3)).
  2. Find the direction of maximum increase in f at the point (2,3). What is the rate of maximum increase?

2015 Term Test:

  1. Determine the rate of change in f(x,y) = y - x^2 + z^2 as you move from (-1,0,2) towards (2,4,2).
  2. Compute the directional derivative of f(x,y,z) = x^2y^3z^2 at the point (2,1,-1) in the direction of the upward normal for the plane 2x+y-2z = -7.

MAT B41 — Week 3

Posted in 2018 -- MAT B41, Lecture Notes, Uncategorized by pgadey on 2018/05/22

20180521_085311
Homework 2 is available. Due next week!

Additional resources:

Suggested Exercises:

  • Section 1.5 n-Dimensional Euclidean Space: 1, 2, 7, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17
  • Section 2.2 Limits and Continuity: 1, 2, 4b, 8, 11a, 16, 18, 20, 32, 33

Past Term Tests:

2016 Term Test: Calculate the following limits, showing all your steps, or show that the limit does not exist:

  1. \lim_{(x,y) \rightarrow (0,0)} \frac{x^4y^4}{(x^2+y^4)^3}
  2. \lim_{(x,y) \rightarrow (0,0)} \frac{x^3 - x^2y}{\sqrt{x} + \sqrt{y}}

Define f: \mathbb{R}^2 \rightarrow \mathbb{R} by f(0,0) = 0 and f(x,y) = \frac{2x^2y}{x^2 + y^2} when (x,y) \neq (0,0).
Find all points (x,y) such that f is continuous at (x,y).

2015 Term Test:

Define f: \mathbb{R}^2 \rightarrow \mathbb{R} by f(0,0) = 2 and f(x,y) = \frac{2x^2 - 2xy + 4y^2}{x^2 + 2y^2} when (x,y) \neq (0,0).
Find all points (x,y) such that f is continuous at (x,y).

MAT B41 — Week 2

Posted in 2018 -- MAT B41, Lecture Notes, Uncategorized by pgadey on 2018/05/15
Tutorials start this week. Homework #1 posted. Recommended Exercises Check-In Survey.

Update (2018-06-16): Several people spotted a typo in Question 2.5 of Homework 1. The question read: “Express the vector \vec{i} - 2\vec{j} + 4\vec{j} as a linear combination of \vec{a}, \vec{b}, and \vec{c}”. This was weird because \vec{i} - 2\vec{j} + 4\vec{j} =\vec{i} + 2\vec{j}. The vector in the question has been changed to: \vec{i} - 2\vec{j} + 4\vec{k}.

Additional resources:

Suggested Exercises:

  • Section 1.3 Matrices, Determinants, and the Cross Product: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 16, 17, 28, 29, 35

Past Term Tests:

2016 Term Test: Let A(x,y,z) = \left( \begin{array}{ccc} x& y& z\\ 1& 2& x\\ 0& 3& y\\  \end{array} \right).

  1. Write \det A(x,y,z) as a polynomial.
  2. Define f(x,y,z) = \det A(x,y,z) and find the directional derivative of f at (-1,2,1) in the direction of the normal line to the plane x + 2y + 2z = 0.

The \LaTeX source of the homework has been posted here.
