Lecture ( minutes)
Give the students a = 6bc - eFb/7 and ask them to write down a partial derivative they can find from this equation. Students are likely to come with derivatives of a, and should be encouraged to note what they are holding constant explicitly. They may not realize that it is possible to find inverses of those derivatives, or that it is even possible to find a derivative of b with respect to c. If no students do, ask them to zap with d. This is an opportunity to give an i…text/html2017-11-15T14:07:31-08:00Paul Emighcourses:prereq:inpre:inpreintegrals - created

Lecture (25 minutes)
Describe a simple gas in a piston system and make a large sketch on the whiteboard. Emphasize to students that even though they will spend a lot of time working with the ideal gas, we are going to think about general gas properties, and so we will not be reasoning from the ideal gas law.text/html2017-11-15T13:53:27-08:00Paul Emighcourses:prereq:inpre:inpregen

Ask students to make a sketch of f = 7x2 on the big white board.
What are the variables of interest? One idea here is to note that x is not the only variable here: f is also a variable from a physics perspective.text/html2017-10-05T13:51:09-08:00Ian Foundspublications:start

Prerequisites
Some, but by no means all, of our students have some experience with basic complex number algebra. It is really important to make sure that everyone is strong before you enter the spins course. Take some time here!!! In particular, we have found that some students understand triangle trigonometry, but not circle trigonometry. Students who don't understand circle trigonometry will have constant difficulties with the exponential form of complex numbers and complex conjugation.text/html2017-09-15T08:47:25-08:00Corinne Manoguecourses:prereq:prpre:prprematrix

Prerequisites to Matrix Manipulation
While some students may not have done any linear algebra, it is expected that most will have learned basic matrix manipulations. Most of this section should be a quick review, especially:text/html2017-09-15T08:21:07-08:00Corinne Manoguecourses:lecture:prlec:prlecmatrixmanip

Lecture: Review of Matrix Manipulations (45 minutes)
Use the handout below to review basic matrix operations. A good review is to pose an example of each operation, using simple numbers, and ask students to write the result on their small whiteboards. Spend time reviewing those operations that are tricky.
