Old Lecture Materials

Below are outlines and notes for lectures from a pervious quarter. I will give the most up-to-date outlines on Canvas, but use these old notes if you want to read ahead or see more examples. Note that in my in-class session will also have animations and extra examples (that you won't find in these old notes), but these work as quick notes if you ever miss a day.

12.1 Lecture Outline - 12.1 Notes: Intro to 3D, axes, coordinate planes, distance, and spheres.
12.2 Lecture Outline - 12.2 Notes: Intro to vectors: addition, magnitude, scalar multiplication, unit vector; Then Intro to dot products.
12.3 Lecture Outline - 12.3 Notes: Dot Products: Definition, Big Theorems/Facts, Orthogonality, Angle between vectors, Projections; Then Intro to Cross-Product.
12.4 Lecture Outline - 12.4 Notes: Cross Products: Defintion, Computing/Checking, Big Facts, Right-Hand Rules, Area of Parallelogram; Then intro to Lines.
12.5 Lecture Outline - 12.5 Notes 1: Lines and Planes in 3D.
12.5 Notes 2: Lines and Planes in 3D - How to approach problems.
12.6 Summary: Intro to Surfaces in 3D, traces, then 7 important names: Cylinders, Paraboloids (Two Types: Elliptical or Hyperbolic), Hyperboloids (Two Types: One Sheet or Two Sheets), Cones, Spheres/Ellipsoids. You must know how to identify all these shapes and generally know what they look like.
