    Text: Calculus, with Early Vectors, Preliminary Edition, by James Stewart. Individual sections may vary somewhat from this schedule.

    Chapter 11

    • Section 11.1 -- #3, 5, 7, 13, 25, 29, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 47.

    • Section 11.3 -- #3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 19, 21, 23, 31.
    • Also be able to do the following problem:
       Let A1 and B1 be the vectors (1,2,0) and (-3,1,0), respectively. Let A2 and B2 be the vectors obtained by rotating A1 and B1 by an angle of 60 degrees in the counterclockwise direction about the Z-axis. Compute the vectors A2 and B2 and show that the cross product of A2 with B2 is the same as the cross product of A1 with B1.
      Hint: to compute A2 and B2, express the x,y-coordinates of A1 and B1 using polar coordinates.
      Answer: A2=(-1.232, 1.866, 0); B2=(-2.366, -2.098, 0) and A1 x B1 = (0,0,7) = A2 x B2.
