Let’s get oriented before the class starts. The point of the homework this week is (1) to get you practice uploading homework to Gradescope, and (2) give me an chance to get to know a little about you before the class starts. :) And here’s some reading you might find beneficial for the week.
Tuesday we’ll talk about polynomials and rational expressions and various operations with them, and Thursday we’ll talk about converting between units and scaling units across dimensions. Here’s some reading you might find beneficial for the week.
This week we’ll start on Tuesday talking about functions, then Thursday we’ll talk about $n$-dimensional space, vectors, curves, and distances. Basically I want y’all to think of functions abstractly and to think of space as being pure and geometrical before y’all get tunnel vision when we start graphing functions. ;) And here’s some reading you might find beneficial for the week.
This week we’ll talk about graphing a host of different functions and we’ll talk about some situations that can be modelled with linear or quadratic functions.
