- Read (or re-read) the description of Calc 1 problem sets, to learn or remind yourself of the reasoning, the procedures, expectations of how you'll work on them, etc.
- You are always responsible for daily WeBWorK assignments (not listed here) as well as for the weekly assignments.
- If a weekly assignment consists of both WeBWorK and handwritten problems, it is a good idea to complete the WeBWorK problems first, both because you'll be able to learn from the feedback that WeBWorK gives you, and because usually many of the WeBWorK problems will be at a more introductory level than the handwritten problems.
- Remember - for the handwritten problems, follow the Guidelines for Homework Presentation.
- Work on the problem set throughout the week.
- Each weekly problem set will be due around 1pm on Thursdays unless otherwise noted. (The WeBWorK will actually be due at 12:50pm.)
- If you work with others on a weekly problem set,
- remember that in the end, the work and understanding must be your own.
- you must cite them on specific problems, or at the beginning of the problem set.

- Guidelines for using your graphing calculator or Wolfram Alpha: Do not use technology to accomplish the main purpose of a problem (for example, if the problem is in the section on a section on limits, you may not use technology to evaluate the limit). However, you may use it to look at a graph (unless it is clear from the problem that part of the point is to
**not**look at the graph) or to help with individual algebraic steps of a problem. -

: Covers functions, graphs, exponents and logs
**Handwritten:**

**O/Z Section 1.1:**7, 8, 18, 37

**O/Z Section 1.2:**12, 13, 15, 28, 53, 55, 57, 58

**O/Z Section 1.3:**1, 12, 13, 14- WeBWorK: Trig functions; motivating and estimating derivatives; geometry of the derivative

If any WeBWorK problem refers to inverse functions (f^{-1}), skip that portion of the problem. **Handwritten:**

**O/Z Section 1.3:**38

**O/Z Section 1.4:**11, 16, 17, 22, 42, 45, 46, 48[refers to given graph], 51, 52, 54, 56, 61

For Problems 45, 46, 56, and 61, some of you may have learned shortcuts in previous

classes.**Do not use them**. The reason we are structuring the class this way is because

these are some of the most important aspects of Calculus, which often get obscured

by the shortcuts. Only use what we have learned about the derivative so far.

O/Z Section 1.5: 25, 38, 46- WeBWorK: Covers the geometry of derivatives and using repeated/improving estimation to find derivatives
:
**Handwritten:**

**O/Z Section 1.6:**11, 22, 23

**O/Z Section 1.7:**6, 15, 16, 17, 18, 27, 30, 31

**O/Z Section 2.1:**12, 38, 41

- WeBWorK: Covers the limits from graphical viewpoint, limit rules, symbolic/limit definition of the derivative, continuity, Intermediate Value Theorem
No written homework this week, just the webwork (due earlier than usual). Also of course, work on the study guide (available on OnCourse)
