# Homework

In case you miss a homework assignment in class, you can find it below. Unless otherwise specified, all problems are from the 2nd Edition of University Calculus: Early Transcendentals published by Addison Wesley (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.
