We worked several chain rule exercises from page 146 today. In the process, we avoided the use of u-substitution. Homework: P. 146-147 #11-31 odd, 54, 55 (due Thursday. Try to work about 1/2 of these each night.) Check your answers with the ones given in the back of the book to ensure that you understand the process.
The quiz tomorrow will cover velocity/acceleration/position. Practice problems with answers (revised 11/7/2008 at 11:10 A.M.)
When you feel how depressingly
slowly you climb,
it’s well to remember that
Things Take Time.
