Course Reader clarification

Postby Jocelyn_Limas_2G » Thu Jan 19, 2017 1:02 am

Can I please get clarification on using an integral to sum an infinite number of steps? I was wondering if we will ever need to know how to derive w, work, for the exams/quizzes.

Since Dr. Lavelle mentioned it in lecture and assumes we've all had experience taking derivatives and finding integrals, I'd say we will probably need to do one of the two or even both on a quiz/exam. But I don't think he'd give us any tedious or over-complicated problems. I hope this helps, if anything, look through the practice problems and previous midterms/exams for any actual evidence of previous classes doing any of the two.

I agree, it would probably be fairly simple. For work, I think it would be similar to the basic integrals we did in LS30A during the beginning of Riemann Sum lectures. (In another thread Dr. Lavelle replied that all derivations in lecture are technically "fair game" but derivations aren't the focus of 14B)
