Multivariable Calculus - Problem Sets
Spring 2013, Math 236

March, 2013

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

• Re-read the description of multi problem sets, to remind yourself of the reasoning, the procedures, expectations of how you'll work on them, etc.
• You are always responsible for daily WeBWorK assignments as well as for the weekly assignment.
• If a weekly assignment consists of both WeBWorK and handwritten problems, it is a good idea to complete the WeBWorK problems first, both because you'll be able to learn from the feedback that WeBWorK gives you, and because usually many of the WeBWorK problems will be at a more introductory level than the handwritten problems.
• Remember - for the handwritten problems, follow the Guidelines for Homework Presentation.
• Work on the problem set throughout the week.
• Each problem set is due at the beginning of class Wednesdays.
• If you work with others, remember that in the end, the work and understanding must be your own.
• If you work with others, you must cite them on specific problems or at the beginning of the problem set.
• If I am assigning a Writing Exercise or Exploratory Exercise, I will refer to it as, for instance WE #2, or EE#3.

PS 6: due Wednesday 3/6

WeBWorK: Covers Sections 11.2, 11.3 and part of 10.6

Handwritten:

11.2: 13, 15, 28, 34, 37, 41, 42
The point of this section is the Calculus, so please do
all differentiation and integration without technology.
11.3: 21, 33, 34
10.6: 3, 7, 13

Note: WeBWorK didn't have enough appropriate problems, so I had to choose more from the book than usual. In order to get your problem set graded in a timely fashion, I will not be able to grade all the problems, so I will choose a selection to grade. For the rest, I'll just give you credit for doing them. (The neater the homework as a whole is, and the more clearly explained, the more quickly I can grade each problem ... and hence the more feedback you'll get.)

PS 7: due Wednesday 3/20

WeBWorK: Covers the rest of Section 10.6, as well as Sections 12.1 and part of Section 12.2

Handwritten:

12.1: 18, 31, 32, 40
For 31 and 32, scan or photocopy the map from your text
Do problem 40 without technology, although of course
you can use it to check your results.
12.2: 18, 47, 48, 49

PS 8: due Wednesday 3/27

WeBWorK: Covers the rest of Section 12.2, all of Section 12.3, and part of Section 12.4. Do any (partial) differentiation without technology.

Handwritten:

12.2: 28, 40
12.3: 12, 14, 30, 43, 51, 53, 58
A large part of the point of Section 12.3 is the act of
(partial) differentiation. Do not use technology to
differentiate for you. When using chain rule, product
rule, or quotient rule, show some work.
12.4: For this week, only a few problems in WeBWorK.
