Review Sheet1   Math H161   Autumn 04


[n] means the topic is found on acetate n.

Theory that might be on Midterm II is marked by asterisks  ***.  Five items are marked.  One of them will be on the exam.

Boldface for items beyond Midterm I that could be on Midterm II.

There will be nothing involving complex numbers or partial fractions on Midterm II.

You may bring calculators to Midterm II, and you will be allowed to use them on part of the exam.

If a function is continuous everywhere in its domain and it has an inverse function, then the inverse function is continuous everywhere in the domain of the inverse function [94]
