# 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}

Assignment 6 is posted.

The midterm exam will take place on Friday,
12 October. As always, you are permitted any paper
notes you find useful, but no electronic devices are
allowed. The test is cumulative, but emphasizes
the material covered in the last fours weeks.
A sample exam is
available.

You need to install
Matlab
on your computer by Wednesday.
You do not need Simulink or any particular toolboxes, though
you might find the Symbolic toolbox useful at some time
in the future (not in this class).
