Students will need both the course textbook ( Simmons, George F. Calculus with Analytic Geometry. 2nd ed. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill, October 1, 1996, ISBN: 9780070576421) and the course reader (18.01/18.01A Supplementary Notes, Exercises and Solutions; Jerison, D., and A. Mattuck. Calculus 1) to complete the assigned problem sets. The course reader is where to find the exercises labeled 1A, 1B, etc.
Problem sets have two parts, I and II
Part I consists of exercises given in the course reader and solved in section S of the course reader. It will be graded quickly, checking that all is there and the solutions not copied.
Part II consists of problems for which solutions are not given; it is worth more points. Some of these problems are longer multi-part exercises posed here because they do not fit conveniently into an exam or short-answer format. See the guidelines below for what collaboration is acceptable, and follow them.
To encourage you to keep up with the lectures, both Part I and Part II tell you for each problem on which class session day you will have the needed background for it.
Collaboration on problem sets is encouraged, but
2.1 = Section 2.1 of the Simmons book
Notes G = section G of the Notes (Course Reader)
1A-3 = Exercise 1A-3 in Section E (Exercises) of the Notes (solved in section S)
2.4/13; 81/4 = in Simmons, respectively, section 2.4 Problem 13; page 81 Problem 4
