1 Math Review (to fill in the blanks please watch the corresponding Podcast; feel free to watch as many times as you want) I. Calculus A. Introduction Let y=f(x) Spse f(x) looks like: Derivative ( ) x x f x x f x f dx dy x Δ - Δ - Δ ) ( ) ( 0 0 0 lim Think change in y over change in x where the change in x is really small

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
