Calculus III ---  Homework assignments

All problem numbers refer to our textbook by Briggs, Cochran and Gillett.

Extra credit problems will be assigned later, in green. Please note:
  • Use a computer algebra system like Maple or Sage that can deal with symbolic computations.
  • Insert comments on your worksheet to make make it readable for someone who is not an expert!
  • Don't forget to include your name.
  • Please submit the final version in printed form and send me an e-mail with the worksheet.
  • There will be two or three extra credit assignments (the two best count); each is worth from -2 points (no solution) up to 6 points (perfect solution), the points count towards the quiz grade.
