Exam dates and some miscellaneous items may also appear below.
If one day's assignment seems lighter than average, it's a good idea to read ahead and start doing the next assignment, which may be longer than average.
Unless otherwise indicated, problems are from our textbook (Stewart, 4th edition). It is intentional that some of the problems assigned do not have answers in the back of the book or solutions in a manual. An important part of learning mathematics is learning how to figure out by yourself whether your answers are correct.
Read the corresponding section of the book before working the problems. The author's "To the Student" remarks on p. xiv are right on the money:
Some students start by trying their homework problems and read the text only if they get stuck on an exercise. I suggest that a far better plan is to read and understand a section of the text before attempting the exercises.
Date due  Section # / problem #'s

web handout
"Taking notes in a college
math class".
Also: do problems 12.1/ 1,4,5,810, 2328.

F 1/18/02  Don't fall behind! The assignment due Friday is still:

T 1/22/02  Read section 12.5. Also, if you were unable to do certain problems on the last assignment because volumes and the scalar tripleproduct had not been covered, try them again. 
W 1/23/02  12.5/ 1abj, 24, 8,11,13,1518,60. If you feel ready to do some problems concerning planes, based on your reading, then start the assignment that's due Friday, which is much longer than this one. 
F 1/25/02  12.5/ 1(all except a,b,j), 5,19,22,23,26,28,31,36,4143,49,51,54,57, 61,63,65 
M 1/28/02  Read section 13.1 and do problems 13.1/16. If you feel you understand the reading well enough, get a headstart on the next assignment.

W 1/30/02  13.2/36, 912, 21,23, 31, 33, 36,37, 4144, 47. Some of these problems make use of the discussion of tangent vectors, tangent lines, and unit tangent vectors in the first couple of paragraphs of section 13.2; see also Examples 13. We will discuss this material in class on Wednesday, but you should attempt the problems first, based on your reading; otherwise you will have too many new problems due Friday. 
F 2/1/02 
13.4 (not 13.3)/ 4, 7, 911, 13, 15, 16, 17a, 18a, 19
Note concerning last year's exam and Friday's Q&A: I will not go over problems from old exams in class. However, if you have worked on the problems and want to know whether your answers are correct, then on an individual basis you may show me your work (at the end of class or in office hours) and I'll tell you whether it's right. 
M 2/4/01  FIRST MIDTERM EXAM. I will have an extra office hour Monday 4th period in which I'll be able to answer short questions. However, by the morning of the exam, it will be too late for me to explain some whole topic that you don't understand.

W 2/6/02 

F 2/8/02  13.3/14,7,10,12b,13b,14b

W 2/20/02  14.3/7, 1116,19,21,22,31,33,36,43,44,45. Since these should not take you too long, I suggest that you also read from Example 4 through the end of the section, and get a headstart on the problems from 14.3 due Friday.
