Derivative of ln(x) and logarithmic differentiation…

…were the topics of the day.  Homework:  page 170 #15-31 odd.

We also went over the quiz from yesterday. 

Top ten mathematical excuses for not doing homework:

  • I accidentally divided by zero and my paper burst into flames.
  • Isaac Newton’s birthday.
  • I could only get arbitrarily close to my textbook. I couldn’t actually reach it.
  • I have the proof, but there isn’t room to write it in this margin.
  • I was watching the World Series and got tied up trying to prove that it converged.
  • I have a solar powered calculator and it was cloudy.
  • I locked the paper in my trunk but a four-dimensional dog got in and ate it.
  • I couldn’t figure out whether i am the square of negative one or i is the square root of negative one.
  • I took time out to snack on a doughnut and a cup of coffee.
  • I spent the rest of the night trying to figure which one to dunk.
  • I could have sworn I put the homework inside a Klein bottle, but this morning I couldn’t find it.
  • Warning! These excuses are not valid for my classes!
