Calculus for the Phys./Life Sciences 1

Homework Assignment #5

Due Friday, October 18, 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.

At the top of your assignment, please list any students or faculty who you worked with on the assignment. If you received help at the Calculus Workshop please include "Calculus Workshop" in your list as well.

Section 2.3
Problems:   1, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 16, 17, 20, 22, 23

Note: For problems 10, 11 and 14 you should use the limit definition of the derivative to compute the given derivatives. Then, use your answers to find the equations of the tangent lines in problems 16 and 17.

Section 2.4
Problems:   3, 7, 10, 11, 14, 15, 22, 25, 26, 29, 32, 33, 37

Note: For problems #3, 7, 25, 26, 29 and 32, where you are asked to sketch the graph of the derivative given the function, use graph paper to obtain an accurate sketch as is possible.
