Calculus BC Equations and Topics List
A study tool. Equations are mostly listed without a description of what they represent. Topics are detailed based on problems.
Usage: To prepare for the Calculus BC exam, go through topics one at a time and mentally describe the problem, process, and equations involved. If you get stuck - look up the answer and start again from the top. When you can get through the entire sheet - you're ready! Do the same with the equation list - describing exactly what type of problems you might need the equation for. Do not use notes in conjunction with the review sheet. Look up the answer - close the book and start again! You can thank me later.

Smallest Area of a Triangle Formed from the Tangent Line of a Parabola
This problem is an applied optimization problem. The problem is to minimize
the area of the triangle formed by a tangent line to the function y = 1⁄9 x2.
The triangle is defined by the origin, the x-intercept of the tangent line, and the
y-intercept of the tangent line. Only triangles formed in the first quadrant are
Implementing the Teachings of Edward Tufte
Handouts should be made to complement serious presentations. The purpose of this handout is to summarize the Edward Tufte lecture on June 16th, 2016 in Chicago. Tufte began and ended his lecture wordlessly with a clip from the Music Animation Machine project and it is one of the metaphors used for the beautiful potential of clarity in information display. Relatively large amounts of information are displayed in context; the data contains the past, present, and future, and in a short matter of time, the viewer can predict the duration, pitch and sound of the notes heard based on the visual experience of the data. This is a beautiful metaphor for the potential of immediate visual context in multiscale imaging.
