## Colorado State University, Pueblo; Spring 2010 Math 126 — Calculus and Analytic Geometry I, Section 2 Homework Assignments & Course Schedule

Here is a link to the current week, below.

Here is a link back to the course syllabus/policy page.

In the following all sections and page numbers refer to the required course textbook, Calculus (6th ed.), by James Stewart.

This schedule is subject to change, but should be accurate at any moment for at least a week into the future.

For each day, please read the section(s) named in the plan, before that day, while the homework is due that day.

• It is due each day in class or, at the latest, by 2:30pm in my office — or under my office door if I'm not there when you come by.
• Hand in the Writing Emphasis problem(s) (indicated below as "17WE", for example) and the Peer Consultation problems (all the rest) separately.
• Every day a Big Idea sentence, or up to a paragraph, is also due. This should also be on its own page.
• Every written solution you hand in should have two columns, the left one with calculations, etc., the right one labelled "WHY" and having explanations (often consisting of only one-word or just an abbreviation) for every line (or group of lines indicated with a curly brace "}")on the left. Please also make sure that every equals sign ("=") in your work really means that the quantities on both sides of that symbol are the same. Finally, in case the problem is to solve for some numerical or algebraic quantity, put this quantity at the end of your calculation column in a box.

#### Week of January 11:

• The plan for this week:
• M: Mostly bureaucracy and introductions. Read "To the Student", p. xxvi, "A Preview of Calculus", pp. 2-9, and Chapter 1.
• T: Read §2.1; HW0: Send me e-mail (at jonathan.poritz@gmail.com) telling me:
2. Your e-mail address. (Please give me one that you actually check fairly frequently, since I may use it to contact you during the term.)
4. What you intend to do after CSUP, in so far as you have an idea.
5. Past math classes you've had.
6. Other math/science classes intend to take in future semesters.
7. Other classes you're taking at the moment.
8. The reason you are taking this course.
11. Anything else you think I should know (disabilities, employment or other things that take a lot of time, etc.).
12. [Optional:] The best book you have read recently.
I will only enter your name into my gradebook and give you your "late HW passes" when I get this e-mail, so you really need to do this assignment ASAP. Please take a moment to be complete (indeed, be as expansive as you can) — the more information I have about you, the better I can adapt the course to your needs and interests.

• The plan for this week:

Please also turn in, as today's Big Idea, your understanding of where you are in this class, what you need to do for the remaining part of the term, and what has contributed to your good or not-so-good performance up to now (such as on the recent midterm). The specifics of what you intend for the rest of the term (or the rest of your career as a mathematics student!) could certainly be along the lines of what was suggested after Test I, above at this location. The entirely new analysis I would also like to do would be a clear-eyed self critique, including:
1. how did your home study on regular days of the term help or hurt your performance?
2. what about your study before test days (or even quiz days)?
4. was the MLC useful? a private tutor? working with classmates? coming to your instructor's office?
5. were your habits regarding class time useful or not — in terms of regularity of attendance, your note-taking (or daydreaming) practices during class time, whether you asked questions or waited for others to ask, etc.
6. your experiences around the in-class tests (and quizzes): did you study enough/the right things? did you perform up to your potential on the test paper? if not, was it because of panic or carelessness or something else you can keep an eye out for in the future?
7. further habits/practices/attitudes of yours which have impacted your success in this class (and other math classes)...
• T: Read §6.2; hand in HW48 §6.1: 2 (just set this one up — we do not yet know how to do the integral), 4, 10, 16WE, 30
• W: Read §6.2; hand in HW49 §6.2: 2, 4, 8, 16WE, 32; this may be handed in next Monday, if you like.
• Θ: Read §6.3; hand in HW50 §6.2: 36, 42, 50WE, 54, 66; this may also be handed in on Monday, if you like.
• F: CLASS CANCELED... Quiz 10 today — became a take-home quiz, due on Monday: the quiz is to do one of problems 52, 68, or 70 in §6.2, your choice of which (they are all hard — don't wait to the last minute!). Also, since we are not having a class, please do the True/False section of the end-of-chapter problems for Chapters 4 and 5 (for extra credit... and to start studying for the final); if you like, you may also do the "Concept Check" sections of those end-of-chapter materials (for Chapters 4 and 5) as well, for further extra credit.
Please also (re)read §6.3; start the (long, difficult!) HW51 §6.3: 2, 4, 6, 14, 20WE, 44, 46WE may be handed in next Monday or Wednesday.

#### Week of April 19:

• W: Read §6.4; hand in HW51, above: today at the latest it will be on-time.
