Written Homework Assignments for
M408S, Integral Calculus for Scientists

This page is always under construction, so you should check it regularly.

The written assignments will appear on this page. At the beginning of each discussion section, you will be given a written assignment consisting of several interesting and challenging problems. You will work in class on one or more of these problems, as directed by the TA, during the discussion. You will continue to work outside of class on these problems, and then your carefully written solutions will be collected at the beginning of discussion on Monday of the following week. Some of the problems will be graded. In order to receive credit, you must put your name and unique number and time of your discussion section at the top of the page and show all of your work. Your exercises must be well-labeled, neat, and in order, and the work must be stapled. Above all, your assignment must be turned in before the discussion begins. There will be approximately a dozen such weekly assignments; we will drop the lowest two.

The Quest assignments will appear on (you guessed it) Quest. In general, there will be a pre-class and a post-class Quest assignment for each class meeting. The pre-class assignment is due at midnight the night before the class. The post-class assignment is due at 6PM on the day before the subsequent class. In other words, the pre-class assignment for Tuesday is due Monday night, and the post-class is due Wednesday afternoon; the pre-class assignment for Thursday is due Wednesday night and the post-class is due on Monday afternoon. Written assignments are due on Monday afternoon in discussion section.

The class schedule, and hence the schedule of Quest assignments, can be found here.

This is the last graded written homework. Next week I'll assign some problems from Chapter 15 to help you learn about double integrals, but that will not be turned in or graded.

Practice HW on multiple integrals. This is not to be turned in, and consists mostly of odd-numbered problems from the book, so you can check your answers. There are a lot of problems -- do as many as you need to get the hang of things.
Section 15.1: 5, 11, 14.
Section 15.2: 5, 11, 13, 21, 29, 37, 38
