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

February, 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 1/29
PS 1: Individual Assignment

Section 1.1: 5, 7, 9, 11, 12, 18, 21, 37, 38
Section 1.2: 4, 12-19, 28, 41, 49, 51-53, 55, 57, 58

Due Tuesday 2/5
PS 2: Group Assignment

Section 1.3: 1, 11-14, 16, 25, 28, 37, 38, 42, 43
Section 1.4: 11, 16, 17, 19, 42, 45, 48, 51, 52, 54, 56, 59, 61
Note: For those of you who've had some Calculus before: It is crucial that you master the graphical idea of the derivative, as this is what the derivative really is. Please only use ideas learned so far in this class, even if you've learned ways that seem simpler in some other class. (Don't worry, we'll get there too, when the time is right and we're ready to see where it all comes from.)

Due Tuesday 2/12
PS 3: Individual Assignment

Note: Again, for those of you've learned a bit of Calculus before: continue to only use ideas we've learned in this class so far to work on these problems, as the intent is to help you really make sense of what's going on with the derivative.

Section 1.5: 23, 25, 30, 35, 46
Section 1.6: 7, 8, 11, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 28
Section 1.7: 6, 15, 16, 17, 18, 26, 27, 30, 31, 32

Due Monday 2/18
PS 4: This assignment will not be collected, but it will be covered on the exam.

Section 2.1: 11, 12, 21, 29, 37, 38, 40-42, 44
Section 2.2: 10, 14, 17, 19-21, 24, 25, 27-29, 32, 33, 36, 46, 47, 49

Due Tuesday 2/26
PS 5: Individual Assignment

Section 2.3: 1, 7, 9, 12, 14, 15, 20, 49-52, 61
Section 2.4: 3-6, 9, 22, 24, 33, 34, 44, 50, 59, 60

That's it for February's assignments.
Go to the problem sets for March!
