Math 300: Mathematical Computing

Python ICE 8

Use Sympy to find the derivative of the following function, and evaluate it at \(x=1\). \begin{align} f(x)&=x^3-\frac{\cos^2(\pi x)}{2x^2+1}+\frac{11}3x^2-1\\ \end{align}

The last test will take place at the final exam time on Tuesday, 12 December, from 1:30-3:30. It will be written as a one-hour (not 50 minute) exam, but you may have the full two hours for it. In other respects it will be very like the other tests, but comprehensive - it will emphasize Python, but cover all the topics we have seen. There is a Sample Exam, but be aware that things will have changed somewhat with the advent of ChatGPT.

Assignment A is posted.
