• Always do the WeBWorK problems for a section before doing the problems listed below, as the WeBWorK are generally more introductory.
• Read (or re-read) the description of Calc 1problem sets, to learn or remind yourself of the reasoning, the procedures, expectations of how you'll work on them, etc.
• Follow the Guidelines for Homework Presentation.
• Work on the problems throughout the week.
• WebWork (WW) is due by 5pm most Wednesdays. Problem sets (PS) are due by 1pm most Thursdays.
• Whether for group or individual problem sets, you should be working on every problem. See the last several pages of the course policies, on the Honor Code.
• For group problem sets, remember to put a star next to the primary author's name.
• Guidelines for using your graphing calculator, Wolfram Alpha, or Maple: If a problem is supposed to be done using technology, then of course, go for it. Otherwise, you may not use technology to accomplish the main purpose of the problem (for example, if the problem is in the product rule section, you may not use Maple to do the differentiation!). However, you may use it to look at a 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 Kollet Center!
