Calculus I       Assignment 1


This assignment is designed to give you practice with the equation editor.

Since all homework is to be turned in electronically, you must learn how

to send me your work via e-mail.  Attaching a Word document is the easiest

way to do this.  However, it is essential that you learn the editor so you can

add “mathematics” to your document.  There is a primer on the editor under

the Content and Links pages in WebCT.


Here is an example of how to submit a homework problem:


Section 1.3 #49


Find the limit:




First, evaluate at x = 5, to get:   This tells me to factor top and bottom.






Notice the use of bold (you can use ctrl-b to toggle this) and italics (ctrl-i toggles this)

Since this is saved as a Web page, it does not look as perfect as the Word document.




Here is your assignment


Due Tuesday, Sept. 3:

Complete the problems in Word and attach the document as an e-mail attachment.  Send it to
