Problem Sets for Calculus 1 with Econ Applications
Spring 2008, Math 102

March, 2008

• All problem sets are from Calculus from Graphical, Numerical, and Symbolic Points of View, 2nd Edition by Ostebee and Zorn.
• Start each problem set early:
 Each problem set reflects a week's worth of learning, and thus consists of more problems than can easily be done in a day or two. Your solutions should be quite complete, and should go beyond anything you might see in a solution manual. The text encourages you to think! Most hw problems will be different from examples done in class or in the book. Take time to think about what you've learned.

Be sure to check back often, because assignments may change!

Due Tuesday 3/4

Section 3.2: 5-16, 18, 19, 26, 27, 37-42

Due Tuesday 3/25
PS 8: Group Assignment

Note: This problem set may look short, but don't let it fool you! The problems from Section 4.3 can take a very long time, even with all the adjustments I've made to it over the years. In many cases, most of the work is in setting up the problem -- and that's the most important part. Start early and work at it for several days before asking for help. That being said, do come to office hours for help -- I can guarantee that I won't be able to go over very many of them in class!
Section 4.3: 7, 9, 11, 12, 18, 23, 26, 30
Section 4.7: 1,2,3,4

Due Monday 3/31
PS 9: This assignment will not be collected, but it will be covered on the exam.

Section 4.7: 10, 11, 13, 23, 26, 28, 34
Note: For 10, 11, and 13, include graphs you've printed out in Maple.
Section 4.8: 7-10, 17, 18, 35-39

That's it for March's assignments.
Go to the problem sets for April and May!
