Two of the Calculus notes sheets are missing. Optimization and Increasing/Decreasing

The solutions to Calculus - Optimisation ​are missing. Will they be posted soon?

Same question

Hi Grant, I have just added those two calculus notes sheets!
Rosa, sorry, I don't have those just yet. I will need them for my own students in the next couple of weeks though.... so hopefully I'll be able to post them soon.

Jim Noble 5 March 2018 - 18:14

OK, working on some solutions - will put them up soon.....

Rosa, Jon, I have added a set of solutions to the optimisation questions. I corrected a couple of errors I found in the questions along the way. Apologies for those.

On Calculus Optimization, I found the following possible corrections.
Problem # 3 says to take x= 2cm because it was the only one in the "range" you actually get x=2 and x=6 as solutions, both of which fit in the domain, so not sure you could discount one without a sign diagram etc?
Problem #4a a should equal 8 not 3.

Sorry a couple more questions, on # 5, since we have points and not arrows shouldn't decrease be .8 And on number 6d I think the max and min are mixed up.

Thanks Grant - its first on my list for tomorrow to check it out

Jim Noble 9 March 2018 - 11:13

Thanks so much for time taken to point that out Grant. I have made the corrections, Jim
