- Always do the WeBWorK problems for a section before doing the problems listed below, as the WeBWorK are generally more introductory.
- Read (or re-read) the description of Calc 1problem sets, to learn or remind yourself of the reasoning, the procedures, expectations of how you'll work on them, etc.
- Follow the Guidelines for Homework Presentation.
- Work on the problems throughout the week.
- WebWork (WW) is due by 5pm most Wednesdays. Problem sets (PS) are due by 1pm most Thursdays.
- Whether for group or individual problem sets,
*you*should be working on every problem. See the last page of the course policies, on the Honor Code. - For group problem sets, remember to put a star next to the
*primary author*'s name. **Guidelines for using your graphing calculator, Wolfram Alpha, or Maple:**If a problem is supposed to be done using technology, then of course, go for it. Otherwise, you may not use technology to accomplish the main purpose of the problem (for example, if the problem is in the product rule section, you may not use Maple to do the differentiation!). However, you may use it to look at a graph, or to help with individual algebraic steps of a problem.-

**September, 2010**

**Assessments**

Due Wednesday 9/8 - postponed to Friday 9/10 - at 8am: Available through WeBWork; the four assessments are at the bottom of the list, below the regular assigngments.

**Note:** The purpose of the assessments is to determine what, if anything, you may need to review in the first couple of weeks to help you get the most out of the course. To that end, these problems should be done completely on your own, without talking to anyone. Your *first* attempt at each one should be done by 8am Wednesday morning; if there are any that you do not pass, I have some links on my OnCourse page under *Additional Material* that you may find useful; also, you can bring a print-out of the version you attempted to me or to the tutors to discuss, and then you can take another version ...however many times you need to, as long as they are finally passed by September 17. Every attempt should be done on your own, however.

**Also note:** Each assessment does have a time limit; for the longer ones, it's 30 minutes, for the shorter ones, 10-15 minutes.

**WW 1 and PS 1**

For #36, use technology if you like to graph the given function, then use what you know about inverse functions to sketch the inverse.Section 0.4:20, 56

Note:Most of this should be review, although some of it may appear in different form from what you're used to.
