Math 343 (Phillips) Common Calculus Notation Errors
Correct notation is evidence of understanding,
and is required.
In all assignments and exams,
I will assume everyone in the class has read the files linked here
and knows that the things described in them are in fact
not correct notation.
Common notation errors from Math 252.
The most important parts for Math 343 are Sections 1 and 4.
Common notation errors from Math 251.
Almost everything here also applies to Math 252.
These were assembled from the Fall 2010 course,
but they are usually the same every time I teach this course.
The most important parts for Math 343 are Sections 1--6.
Notation for fractions.
Many people seem to have had previous instructors who accepted
incorrect or ambiguous notation for fractions, but I won't.
Notation for limits.
This will also be in Math 343, but not often.
You are expected to get limit notation correct.
