Multivariable Calculus - Problem Sets
Spring 2010, Math 236

January and February, 2010

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

• Read (or re-read) the description of multi problem sets, to learn or remind yourself of the reasoning, the procedures, expectations of how you'll work on them, etc.
• Remember - problems listed in bold red are focus, problems. Turn them in, follow the Guidelines for Homework Presentation. And do the practice problems first-- the focus problems will go much more quickly.
• Work on the problems through the week.
• The homework is due at the beginning of class each Friday.
• 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.
• If I am assigning a Writing Exercise or Exploratory Exercise, I will refer to it as, for instance WE #2, or EE#3.
• Please come to see me for help!
