Everybody must attend all lectures and should arrive on
time. In case you missed the class due to sick, then you should submit
your MC to me. If you missed some classes without sufficient reasons, you
might get negative credit to your grade from the course.

A
little history about the number Pi:1500 years
ago our ancestor already knew that Pi is between 3.1415926 and
3.1415927. This is really remarkable during the time when nobody knew
any calculus. By using Taylor series together with computer, we obtain
that Pi is about 3.14159264, a little more accurate than what our 1500
years old ancestor
did.

These pictures are created by
Maple. Here
are my Maple commands for the left picture: 1. with(plots,animate); 2.
animate([e/(1+e*sin(125*t)),t,t=0..2*Pi],e=-2..2,coords=polar,view=[-4..4,-4..4],numpoints=150,frames=30);
