Lecture notes, source code, etc.

 To procure and install Python, go get the Enthought Python Distribution.

 The regurgitated lecture notes are here. These are the old lecture notes, un-updated, obviously, since we haven't gone through the lectures yet.

Sept 13. Organizational Meeting and First Lecture

We indeed met, there was quite a bit of people. We went through the basics. We dispatched the section 1 of the regurgitated lecture notes, and to top if off we used the last 30 minutes to discuss the proof of the Euler theorem.

Only homework assigned had been to solve x = (ay + b)/(cy + d) for y.

To reinforce this section, we should do as homework: Larson and Edwards, odd exercises 17-25, 37-45, 75-85, and then solve #87 with a calculator or the iPython shell.

Sept 18. Derivatives and their properties.


  • LE chapter 2 odd exercises 7-13, 21-31, and 55-67 (if we get to chain rule and product rule)
  • perform the plots 21-24 using Python.
