Handouts

I've compiled most of the handouts that I've got into one place for quick access to multiple handouts if you should need to. Most of the non class specific handouts can also be found on my notes site.

Note that I do not include homework or homework solutions in this page. To get a copy of those you will need to visit the page for the particular course that you are interested in.

The handouts come if a variety of formats including the following,

  • html - This is fairly obvious. It will load the information into your browser.
  • pdf - This is Adobe's pdf format and requires their Acrobat Reader to view it. Click here to go to Adobe's web site to download Acrobat Reader if you need to. Our lab in Lucas 209 has Acrobat Reader installed as so you can always view these there.
  • mws - This is a Maple worksheet and can only be viewed with Maple. All Maple worksheets are also available in pdf format.

General
This is a set of general handouts that I rarely handout anymore mostly to save on paper since many students didn't pay much attention to these when I did hand them out. They are still nice however, for those students who are interested.

  • Algebra/Trig Review [html | pdf] - Looking for a refresher in Algebra and Trig? Here is a list of problems to test your knowledge of Algebra and Trig skills. This was originally written for my Calculus I students, but others needing a refresher in Algebra and Trig might find it useful as well.

  • Algebra/Trig Review Solutions [html | pdf] - Here are solutions to the problems from the Algebra/Trig Review above.

  • Common Math Errors [html | pdf] - Here is a list of common math errors. This was originally written for my Calculus I students, but anyone who is in a math class should find most of the first three sections accessible. The last section is devoted to calculus.

  • Getting Help/How to Study Math [html | pdf] - Here are some tips for studying mathematics.

Cheat Sheets/Tables
Here are a set of cheat sheets and tables that you might find useful in some of your classes.

  • Algebra Cheat Sheet [Full Sized - pdf | Reduced - pdf] - This is as many common algebra facts, properties, formulas, and functions that I could think of. There is also a page of common algebra errors included. It comes in two version, a full sized version that is currently four pages long and a reduced version that has the same information except it has been reduced down to fit into two pages.

  • Trig Cheat Sheet [Full Sized - pdf | Reduced - pdf] - Here is a set of common trig facts, properties and formulas. A unit circle (completely filled out) is also included. It comes in two version, a full sized version that is currently four pages long and a reduced version that has the same information except it has been reduced down to fit into two pages.

  • Common Derivatives and Integrals [Full Sized - pdf | Reduced - pdf] - Here is a set of common derivatives and integrals that are used somewhat regularly in a Calculus I or Calculus II class. Also included are reminders on several integration techniques. It comes in two version, a full sized version that is currently four pages long and a reduced version that has the same information except it has been reduced down to fit into two pages.

  • Laplace Transforms [pdf] - Here is a list of Laplace transforms for a differential equations class. This tables gives many of the commonly used Laplace transforms and formulas.

Maple
Here are a set of Maple worksheets that I use when I have my students use Maple, although I'm doing less and less Maple these days.

  • Basic Maple Commands [mws] [pdf] This is a Maple worksheet giving some of the basic Maple commands and some examples of how they are used.

  • Basic 3D Graphing in Maple [mws] [pdf] This is a Maple worksheet illustrating some of the 3D graphing capabilities of Maple.

  • Basic Maple Commands for Differential Equations [mws] [pdf] This is a Maple worksheet giving some of the Maple commands that deal with differential equations as well as examples of how they are used.
