    Even more than in Calc 1 or Calc 2, balancing your need to get plenty of practice using new techniques with exploring deeper ideas inevitably means a lot of homework. At the same time, it is really important that you practice writing up well-written solutions to problems -- but doing that for upwards of 20 problems every week can be a bit much. I have therefore decided to divide the problems into two groups: those that you will turn in, following the Guidelines for Homework Presentation -- henceforth referred to as focus problems , and those that you of course still must do, but that you do not have to turn in, henceforth referred to as practice problems. Generally speaking, the focus problems in will rely on ideas that you will have honed and practiced by doing the practice problems first.
