Calculus for the Phys./Life Sciences 1

Homework Assignment #1

Due Wednesday, September 11, START of Class

Homework should be turned in at the BEGINNING OF CLASS. All problem numbers refer to the Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, McCallum, et al. book, the required text for the course. You should write up solutions neatly to all problems, making sure to SHOW ALL YOUR WORK. A nonempty subset will be graded. You are strongly encouraged to work on these problems with other classmates, although the solutions you turn in should be YOUR OWN WORK. Please list any students or faculty who you worked with on the assignment.
