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

April & May, 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 4/8
PS 10: Individual Assignment

Section 4.9: 1, 3, 5, 8-10, 13, 15, 16, 24, 25, 27
Section 5.1: 5, 8, 9, 18
Note: The point of these problems is that you fully master the idea of the integral as signed area. For this reason, as at the beginning of the semester, you should only use what we've learned so far in this class.

Due Tuesday 4/15
PS 11: Group Assignment

Section 5.1: 20, 37, 38, 41, 44, 66
Note: Again, to ensure you master the idea behind the integral, only use what we've learned through Sect. 5.1
Section 5.2: 3, 6, 21, 24, 51-53
Note: Similarly, to ensure you master the idea behind the area fn, only use what we've learned through Sect. 5.2
Section 5.3: 1, 3, 10, 12, 19, 20, 22-24, 33, 49
Note: For these problems, take full advantag of the FTC, and take note of how much easier it makes problems similar to those you did in 5.1 and 5.2.

Due Monday 4/21
PS 12: This assignment will not be collected, but it will be covered on the exam.

Section 5.3: 5, 21, 26-29, 53
Section 5.4: 2- 4, 6-8, 23-29, 32, 33
Section 5.6: 1, 5, 7, 9, 14

Due Friday 5/2
PS 13:

Section 5.6: 15, 16, 25-28
Section 2.5: 3, 5, 6, 10, 16,19, 20, 21, , 39, 42
Section 2.6: 4, 12, 35, 36, 44, 55, 56, 63, 65, 67
Section 2.7: 14
Section 3.1: 81

That's it for the semester's assignments!
