Quiz 2.1-4 Topics


Here’s a list of topics that will be covered on this Friday’s 2.1-4 Quiz. I’ve tried to indicate where a similar homework problem would be helpful.

Calculate the slope of a secant line to a given level of accuracy. (2.1, #9)
Find an average rate of change from a data table. (2.1, #1)
Determine limits from a graph (2.2, #5,7)
Determine infinite limits given a function (2.2, #25)
Determine a value “a” to create a limit in a rational function (2.3, #59)
Apply the limit laws to determine a limit. (2.3, #1)
Determine delta given x, f(x), L and a (algebraically) (2.4, #1)
Determine delta given x, f(x), L and a (graphically) (2.4, #5)

That's it! I'll be in early on Friday. Don't forget the makeup test for chapter 1 has to be completed before the weekend.

"Calculate the slope of a secant line to a given level of accuracy. (2.1, #9)"

Forgive my ignorance, but did we go over slopes of secant lines?

Sure - check out the hw problem referenced. And the whole idea of a tangent line is drawing secant lines with the two points on the curve getting closer and closer together until they're right on top of each other...
