Weekly Problem Sets
Math 101: Calculus 1; Spring, 2015

January and February, 2015

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

• 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 theses weekly assignment.
• 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 by 8:30am Thursdays unless otherwise noted. (The WeBWorK will actually be due at 8:20am.)
• 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.
• Please come to see me for help, as well as taking advantage of the tutoring hours through Filene Center!
