******************************************

Dr. Chinburg, the Undergraduate Chair for Mathematics, has asked the faculty to remind students of several sources of help. These links are also found on our course guide. One is the general math advising page:

The other is the link to the Math 150 newsgroup. This newsgroup is very underutilized. This is a place where you can post questions and get answers. The questions and answers are open to anyone who looks at the newsgroup. The newsgroups are manned by TA's Monday through Thursday evenings from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. The TA's will not solve homework problems for you, but they will give suggestions if you are stuck. I try to check the newsgroup occasionally as well. The link below gets you to the main Math 150 web page. From there, click on Netnews.

This assignment is related to

- Lecture 20 - Monday, October 26
- Lecture 21 - Wednesday, October 28
- Lecture 22 - Friday, October 30

**Exam #4 on Tuesday, November 10 will cover the course material
through Chapter 5.**

- Go through the worked Sample Problem for Chapter 5, Section 4. This material is found on pages 141 - 142 of the Lab Manual. I suggest that you first try to do the problems using MAPLE on your own. Then compare your solutions with those in the Lab Manual.
- Work through Demonstrations #8, 9, 10.

**READING: **Chapter 5 Sections 4 - 6.

**CORE PROBLEMS:** Write up, for your own record, solutions to
the Core
Problems for Chapter 5 sections 4 -6 .

**NOTE: Core Problem Error**. There is an error in the
formulation of problem 55 in section 5.4. The given function never
reaches a maximum as it asymptotically approaches 10,000.

**OLD FINAL EXAM PROBLEMS:** Final Exams for the past eight
semesters are included at the back of your Math 150/151 Lab
Manual. For this week's assignment you should work the following
problems from the old final exams:

************

This set on exponential and logarithmic functions is particularly important, and serves as a good review of earlier material as well. You should master all of the material on these old final exams.
