Homework

Homework will consist of two parts:

1. Webwork: this is an online homework system that gives you immediate feedback concerning the correctness of your responses. The webwork homework must be submitted online by 11:00 on the due date; the system does not permit late submission. Please see the this document (link coming soon) for information about how to use webwork. Each webwork assignment is worth approximately 3 points.
2. Written homework: Typically, about two problems will be assigned from the text each class. The problems will be posted in the Homework Assignments section of the webpage. Please show your work fully. The written homework from the previous week will be due every Friday. Each written homework is worth ten points, and each assignment will be scored on a scale of 0 to 10.
In addition to the assigned homework problems, you will find the class time much more beneficial if you read the material in the text in advance of each lecture. It is very helpful to try working some of the homework problems in advance of the lecture so that you have a good idea of where the difficulties lie. You are strongly encouraged to do additional problems for practice.

Late homework will be reviewed, but you will recieve a score of 0. No Webwork scores will be omiited from the calculation of your webwork score.

Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but all homework is to be written up independently!

Lecture Number Date Assigned Date Due Required Practice
1 9/23 9/25 Webwork M13.09set1 Section 13.3: 42 (read 41 first), 46

Section 13.5: 64 (this is prob. 60 in old edition)
Hint on problem 64: To find a direction vector, youll need a vector through the given point and perpendicular to the given line. Start with a vector from the given point to an arbitrarily chosen point on the line and then use the method from your previous homework problem in Section 13.3.
