You are on page 1of 6

The purpose of this assignment is to help you get back some of the calculus and physics skills that may

be a bit rusty after a summer or semester of disuse. You will need all of these techniques and equations

during the semester, so you must review this material and come to the first day of class prepared to use

the knowledge you gained in pre-requisite courses! I hope that your work on this assignment will give

you a prep sheet that you can refer to during the course if, for example, you need to refresh the

definition of the chain rule.

Instructions:

This assignment is due 4pm on the first day of class.

This assignment will be graded, and it will count towards your overall homework grade in the course, so

take it seriously and do your best work. Make sure to appropriately show your work. Write out your

answers on a separate piece of paper. Each question will be graded out of two points; 2/2 means you

did exactly what was asked, means you should have showed more work or did not get the right

answer, and 0/2 means you did the problem completely wrong or got the right answer but did not show

your work.

Please note that although I love Mathematica and Sage as much as any physics student, it is not

appropriate to use a computer or calculator to solve the derivatives and integrals in this problem set.

These are all problems you should be able to do by hand, and will have to do from memory during inclass derivations and quizzes this semester. So, time to remember how to do them without a computer!

Start early; it is probably a mistake to put this off until the day it is due. This assignment has over sixty

problems. If you dont remember the material, the assignment may take a while, but the time reviewing

will be well spent since you will need these skills to be successful in this class

SHOW YOUR WORK. Yes, some of answers have no work to show, but if you have to do any algebra or

vector expansion, do not do it in your head, write it out. Remember, doing it in your head and

copying it from the computer look the same to me when I grade.
