Math 195, Section 47
Instructor: Laurie Field

## Course Information

Make sure you read the course information handout for important information about homework, midterms, the final exam, and grading. Please refer to last quarter's page for all the exams and practice exams from the last time I taught this course, with solutions.

## Homework

The first column is homework for you to hand in on the Wednesday after the class when it was set.

The second column is homework to try if you want to challenge yourself to work out some more difficult problems. It is not to be handed in. If you want to ask about the problems or check your solutions, you can ask at office hours or the problem session.

For ex 36 use the value g = 9.8 m/s2 for the acceleration due to gravity.
For ex 34, 36 and 38 please give approximate answers using a calculator.
For ex 38, “weight” means force due to gravity in Newtons (N), F = mg, not mass.
