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

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 (or fraction thereof).
• 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.
Note that the explanation part is much more important than the final answer.

• 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.
