(Note: Students seem to have difficulty with Problem 2, which was adapted from Exercise No.5 after Section 45. A change of branch is recommended.)
• (3/15) Study guide for MT3. There are two main themes for this exam:
1. You will need to know how to find the Taylor / Maclaurin series of the common elementary functions, like exponential functions, sin and cos etc. For example, review Examples 1, 2, 4, 5 in Section 59 and exercises within.
2. Application of the Cauchy--Goursat Theorem and integral formula. For example, review exercises in Sections 45, 49, 52.
• (2/24) The HW problems selected for MT2 are: 1. Section 31 #4(b); 2. Section 33 #1(a), 2(b); 3. Section 29 #3; 4. Section 20 #9 and Section 23 #6.
• (2/23) We have a really good second midterm exam. There are 23 takers and the medium score is 88. The distribution: 90-100: 8 , 80-89: 9 , 70-79: 5 , 50-59: 1 . Congratulations!

• (1/31) We have a pretty good first midterm exam. There are 25 takers and the medium score is 83. The distribution: 90-100: 7 , 80-89: 9 , 70-79: 5 , 60-69: 2 , 50-59: 1 , 40-49: 1.
• (1/21) Next Tuesday (25th) Feng, my substitute, will answer your questions and go over a few problems I personally picked, (as many as the time allows.) Remember to bring your HW due on 25th to the class. Next Thursday (27th) is the first midterm exam! There are 5 problems in the test, so you have only about 10 minutes for each problem. All problems come from your HW. So work on all your HW problems, without notes and books, would be a great way of preparing for the test. Also come in early and bring your student ID card. The exam will start 5 minutes before the bell time and Feng might check your ID card.
• (1/14) Some comments on HW Section 10 #2-4: You will need to 1. Find the roots (plural!) 2. Write them in rectangular coordinates. 3. Put them in graphs like Figure 13. Note though #2(b) will not be "symmetric." 4. Point out which root is the principal root. That is, the angle is less or equal to \pi, but greater than - \pi.
• (1/13) A student asked about the significance of | z - (1 + i 2) | < = 3 and the likes. A simple calculation will show that it is the same as (x-1)^2 + (y-2)^2 < = 3^2. This means exactly all points on the complex plane whose distance from (1,2) are less or equal to 3.
• (1/11) If you are a math major, you might be eligible for scholarships! See the following link for details.
