Problem Sets have two parts, A and B.
Part A has problems from the text ( Simmons, George F. Calculus with Analytic Geometry. 2nd ed. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill, 1995. ISBN: 0070576424.), with answers to many in the back of the text, and problems from the 18.02 Supplementary Notes and Problems with solutions at the end of the Notes. Look at the solutions if you get stuck, but try to do as much as possible without them. Hand in the underlined problems only; the others are for more practice. Part A will be graded quickly, checking that the problems are there and the solutions not merely copied.
Part B consists of unsolved problems, is worth more points, and will be graded more carefully. Some of these problems are longer multi-part exercises posed here because they do not fit conveniently into an exam or short-answer format.
Advice: Make sure that you understand the problems by comparing your answers against the solutions, whether before (Part A) or after (Part B) the assignment is due. Keep up with the work in small installments - don't leave it all for a marathon session on Wednesday night. You can't learn well under time pressure. To help you keep up, each problem is labeled with the day on which you will have the needed background for it.
Collaboration on problem sets is encouraged, but
