Hamman’s Study Diary

Back to differentiation and integration

Filed under: MAT 211, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 3:48 pm

In our tutorials session, we started on the following topics…

  • Parametrized curves
  • Calculus of vector functions

Under the second topic, we are now revisiting limits, differentiation and integration from Calculus I and II, but this time with vector-value functions.

More coordinate systems and other boggles

Yesterday we revised on polar coordinates before moving onto cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems. The evening class continued with a first look into Chapter 13, on vector-valued functions, strange functions that don’t return real numbers as results, but vectors instead! We closed by going over the finding the domain of vector-valued functions.

More on 3D graphs

Filed under: MAT 211, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 7:53 pm

The evening class is about to end. We have covered quadric surfaces with the following sub-topics:

  • Ellipsoids
  • Hyperboloids of one sheet
  • Hyperboloids of two sheets
  • Elliptic cones
  • Elliptic paraboloids
  • Hyperbolic paraboloids

PS – This stuff is great for programming in 3D!
