Recording Information:
The video below was filmed on November 27th, 2017 at the University of
Pittsburgh and is a recording of my Calculus I (MATH220) lecture. Please visit
http://calculus.math.pitt.edu for the course syllabus
and a list of topics covered.
The total length of the lecture is 48 minutes and I have
provided both a full-length video as well as a
condensed version for easy viewing.
Section Information:
There are 75 students enrolled in my section of Calculus I.
Most students are majoring in Engineering, Biology, Chemistry,
or Computer Science.
There are very few Mathematics majors/minors in this class.
Attendance on the day of the recording was approximately 63.
Lecture Description:
On this day of lecture we started to
discuss the method of substitution (change of
variables) for computing indefinite integrals. The textbook
which accompanies
this lecture is Essential Calculus: Early Transcendentals,
second edition, by James Stewart. In the previous lecture, the students
learned the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and how it can be
used in evaluating definite integrals.
