# Homework

In case you miss a homework assignment in class, you can find it below. Unless otherwise specified, all problems are from the 12th Edition of Calculus for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences published by Prentice Hall (Pearson). When I return graded homework, I may post some solutions here too; see the downloading help if you have trouble reading them. (See the grading policies for general instructions on doing homework and how it will be graded.)
