Preface

Here are a set of problems for my Calculus I notes. These problems do not have any solutions
available on this site. These are intended mostly for instructors who might want a set of problems
to assign for turning in. I try to put up both practice problems (with solutions available) and these
problems at the same time so that both will be available to anyone who wishes to use them.

Here is a list of sections for which problems have been written.

Introduction
Here are a set of problems for which no solutions are available. The main intent of these
problems is to have a set of problems available for any instructors who are looking for some extra
problems.

Note that some sections will have more problems than others and some will have more or less of
a variety of problems. Most sections should have a range of difficulty levels in the problems
although this will vary from section to section.

Here is a list of topics in this chapter that have problems written for them.

Review : Trig Functions
Determine the exact value of each of the following without using a calculator.

Note that the point of these problems is not really to learn how to find the value of trig functions
but instead to get you comfortable with the unit circle since that is a very important skill that will
be needed in solving trig equations.

Limits

Introduction
Here are a set of problems for which no solutions are available. The main intent of these
problems is to have a set of problems available for any instructors who are looking for some extra
problems.

Note that some sections will have more problems than others and some will have more or less of
a variety of problems. Most sections should have a range of difficulty levels in the problems
although this will vary from section to section.

Here is a list of topics in this chapter that have problems written for them.

Tangent Lines and Rates of Change
The Limit
One-Sided Limits
Limit Properties
Computing Limits
Infinite Limits
Limits At Infinity, Part I
Limits At Infinity, Part II

Introduction
Here are a set of problems for which no solutions are available. The main intent of these
problems is to have a set of problems available for any instructors who are looking for some extra
problems.

Note that some sections will have more problems than others and some will have more or less of
a variety of problems. Most sections should have a range of difficulty levels in the problems
although this will vary from section to section.

Here is a list of topics in this chapter that have problems written for them.

Applications of Derivatives

Introduction
Here are a set of problems for which no solutions are available. The main intent of these
problems is to have a set of problems available for any instructors who are looking for some extra
problems.

Note that some sections will have more problems than others and some will have more or less of
a variety of problems. Most sections should have a range of difficulty levels in the problems
although this will vary from section to section.

Here is a list of topics in this chapter that have problems written for them.

Rates of Change
As noted in the text for this section the purpose of this section is only to remind you of certain
types of applications that were discussed in the previous chapter. As such there arent any
problems written for this section. Instead here is a list of links (note that these will only be active
links in the web version and not the pdf version) to problems from the relevant sections from the
previous chapter.

Each of the following sections has a selection of increasing/decreasing problems towards the
bottom of the problem set.

Differentiation Formulas
Product & Quotient Rules
Derivatives of Trig Functions
Derivatives of Exponential and Logarithm Functions
Chain Rule

Related Rates problems are in the Related Rates section.

Critical Points
Determine the critical points of each of the following functions. Note that a couple of the
problems involve equations that may not be easily solved by hand and as such may require some
computational aids. These are marked are noted below.

Integrals

Introduction
Here are a set of problems for which no solutions are available. The main intent of these
problems is to have a set of problems available for any instructors who are looking for some extra
problems.

Note that some sections will have more problems than others and some will have more or less of
a variety of problems. Most sections should have a range of difficulty levels in the problems
although this will vary from section to section.

Here is a list of topics in this chapter that have problems written for them.

given interval using 6 n = and using,
(a) the right end points of the subintervals for the height of the rectangles,
(b) the left end points of the subintervals for the height of the rectangles and,
(c) the midpoints of the subintervals for the height of the rectangles.

Introduction
Here are a set of problems for which no solutions are available. The main intent of these
problems is to have a set of problems available for any instructors who are looking for some extra
problems.

Note that some sections will have more problems than others and some will have more or less of
a variety of problems. Most sections should have a range of difficulty levels in the problems
although this will vary from section to section.

Here is a list of topics in this chapter that have problems written for them.
