Problem sets and quizzes

Almost every Wednesday (before Thanksgiving) or Tuesday (after Thanksgiving), there will be an quiz during the last hour of the class period, closely based on an associated problem set. (However, there is no quiz in the first week of the course; also, there is a final exam on Friday in the last week.) Unless otherwise specified, all problems are from the 3rd Edition of University Calculus: Early Transcendentals by Hass et al published by Addison–Wesley (Pearson).

Here are the quizzes and their associated problem sets (Quiz 1, Quiz 2, Quiz 3, Quiz 4, Quiz 5, Quiz 6, Quiz 7, Quiz 8, Quiz 9):

• Additional extra-credit problem: A positive quantity undergoes exponential growth if its rate of change with time is also positive and proportional to the size of the quantity (so a constant multiple of that size). If t stands for time and A stands for a quantity undergoing exponential growth, then write down a differential equation involving A and t to say that the rate of change of A with time is a positive constant k times A. If the value of A is a when t = 0, then solve this initial-value problem using separation of variables; you should be able to see why this is called ‘exponential’ growth. (The unspecified constants k and a should both appear in your answer.)
