# MATH 1325 Fall 2015

We are only limited by our imagination, our motivation, and our understanding of mathematics.

If you have any questions send me an email. merwin@tarleton.edu

If you run the computer during class for me, send me an email and remind me so that I give you credit in the gradebook.

When you create an Excel file for this course use the following naming format:

Before we move any further, I would like to review and test on these concepts.

Test Review

Rate of Change (Problems: 13-15, 21-24, 55-56, 61-66)

(HW 1-8, 21-28, 33, 34, 37, 38, 43)

More Marginal Analysis Questions

Marginal Analysis Exam Review

We will test on Friday 10/2.

Concepts: Run the difference quotient with a quadratic, take the derivate of a function or two using the power rule, given a polynomial and a point provide the equation of the tangent line, evaluate a break-even graph and discuss marginal revenue and marginal cost concepts.

From here we will move onto compound interest.

Simple vs. Compound Interest

Derivatives of Exponential Functions Part 1 (HW assigned 10/7)

Example from class on 10/7

Example from class on 10/9

(HW 10/16 Problems 6,7,9,10 in a spreadsheet)

Example from class on 10/16

Derivatives of Exponential Functions Part 3 (HW 10/14)

Turn this in on paper

The midterms grades will stop at this point. We have had two exams and all of the HW up to this point.

Turn in this HW by the 19th.

We will have an exam by the end of October.

Concepts:

Derivatives of Exponential Functions and Logarithmic Functions

Use the derivative at the midpoint to estimate the amount of interest which incurred over a period

Sketch the concept of a secant line through the endpoints of a period of exponential growth
