Here is a link to chapter13.mws

13.1 problem 28; 13.2 problem 28; 13.3 problems 28 and 40 are solved in this file, so I can't assign any 13.3; 13.4 problem 18 (use arrow drawing functions from lab 1).

Monday, Sept. 30:

(look in file /home/holmes/public/M275/chapter14.mws on baron for useful functions and examples; if you want this file at home, ask me and I'll mail it to you -- or try the link below)

Here is a link to chapter14.mws

14.1 probs 49 ,50

problem 62

14.2 problem 22 (set up some paths along which the function has different limits, as in my setup of example 3 below)

problems 25, 26 (this is just plot and make obvious comments)

14.3 problem 80

problem 87 (this is a weird function -- to evaluate the derivatives they ask for, you will need to set up explicit limits)

16.2 problem 27 (also, draw a picture as in my example below; I suggest going through more than one example of line integrals parameterized by arc length)

Drop deadline

My comment about problem 22,section 14.7, which was assigned as a lab problem, in class was incorrect; it appears to solve easily. It is useful to use _EnvExplicit := true, though; then it will evaluate the arc tangents of roots of polynomials which it otherwise shows.
