Weekly Problem Sets
Math 236: Multivariable Calculus — Spring 2018

April and May, 2018

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

• Description of multi problem sets: my reasoning, procedures, expectations
• Guidelines for Homework Presentation
• Remember: daily WeBWorK assignments as well as weekly assignments
• Work on the problem set throughout the week
• I suggest completing the WeBWorK exercises first
• If you work with others on a weekly problem set,
• in the end, the work and understanding must be your own
• cite your collaborators on specific problems, or at the beginning of the problem set

• Guidelines for using technology: Do not use technology to accomplish the main purpose of a problem. For example, if the problem is in a section on the dot product, you may not use a dot product command to do it for you, or if the problem is in a section on understanding surfaces, you may not use technology to graph the surface unless specifically noted. However, you may use technology to look at a graph if that is not the main point of the problem, or to help with individual algebraic steps of a problem.

PS 9: due Tuesday April 3 at 4pm

WeBWorK: Covers Section 14.1 and part of 14.2

Handwritten:

14.1: 1acefgh, 42, 45, 51
14.2: 1ac, 11, 22, 52, 61

PS 10: due Tuesday April 10 at 4pm

WeBWorK: Covers the rest of Section 14.2 and little bit of Section 14.4

Handwritten:

None - As before the first exam, I want you to be able to get immediate feedback on whether you are understanding this problem set before the exam Tuesday evening.

When studying, remember that in addition to the study guide, you should course do additional problems from the book.

PS 11: due Tuesday April 17 at 4pm

WeBWorK: Covers most of Section 14.4

Handwritten:

14.4: 1, 9, 10, 24, 26, 43, 53, 55, 56

PS 12: due Thursday April 26 at 4pm
(Originally, the Thursday due date was a mistake. But since we spent much of today getting a more solid grounding on Friday's material, it makes sense to make it official)

WeBWorK: Covers the rest of Section 14.4 and Section 14.3

Handwritten:

14.4: 51
14.3: 1cdeg, 3, 11, 28, 30, 35, 40
Note 1: Problem 35 has the wrong answer in the back of the book
Note 2: Do all integration problems by hand, without technology.
Note 3: In Problem 28, you may find it easier to figure out the region of
integration if you think of it being bounded only by the z-axis, z=4, and x=z.

PS 13: due Friday May 4 at 4pm

WeBWorK: Covers Section 14.5 and part of Section 14.6

Handwritten:

14.5: 1abcdg, 5
14.6: 1abcd, 7
