Calculus for the Phys./Life Sciences 1

(Sections 02 and 04)

Homework Assignment #3

Due Wednesday, September 21, START of Class

Homework should be turned in at the BEGINNING OF CLASS. All problem numbers refer to the 4th edition 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.

Note: Please list any students or faculty who you worked with on the assignment.

Section 1.6 (pp. 42 - 44)
Problems:   1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 14, 24

Note: Be sure to explain your answers (show your work) for problems #14 and #24.

Section 1.7 (pp. 47 - 48)
Problems:   4, 6, 12, 18, 19, 22

Section 1.8 (pp. 55 - 57)
Problems:   2, 14, 20, 28, 32, 36, 38

Note: Problems #14 and #28 require the use of a calculator or computer. If you do not have a graphing calculator, you should use MAPLE to plot the function in #14c and #14d. The goal of #14d is to find a possible delta which insures that the function is within epsilon = 0.01 of the limit.
