Summations Video #6

In this example, a does not equal zero.

Summations Video #7

In this example, you will be cubing a quantity for f(x sub i), so I will review the use of Pascal's triangle.

Wednesday's "ticket in the door"

Show me at least one completed problem from Stewart #21, 23-25.

This is worth 5 points.  If it is not done at the very beginning of class, it's a zero.

Check your final answer.  If you make a mistake, you must fix it, and show me where you went wrong and where you found your mistake.
