     Reading ahead (Section 2.1) before Thursday is highly recommended.

   Week 3 - Skim Section 2.1 before Tuesday.

     Skim the beginning of Section 2.2 (rates of change) before Thursday.

   Week 4 - We will be covering continuity, rates of change, and introduce the derivative and its interpretation.

     It would benefit you to read 2.2 thoroughly.

    Major Quiz 1: Key

   Week 5 - We’ll discuss the derivative as a function and rules for computing it efficiently.

     We will discuss marginal profit/cost/revenue and further interpret the derivative.

     Read: 2.3 and 2.4.

    Activity 1: Solutions

   Week 6 - We will recap marginals in business models.

     We will discuss the product and quotient rules in depth, and begin the chain rule.

   Week 7 - We will continue to work on chain rule problems, including the chain rule with other rules.

     We will begin to interpret the derivative via graphs.

     Read pages 245 to 256 before Tuesday.

    Worked chain rule problem

   Week 8 - On Tuesday we will talk about local and absolute extrema and the first derivative test.

     Thursday is Test 1.

    Test 1 Solutions

   Spring Break - Catch up on homework.
