Assigned Sept. 10
Sec. 3.2, problems 1, 3, 5, 7. In problem 7, both tanks are initially full, so they both start overflowing immediately. We are not told the amount of salt that is initially in the first tank, so just say the initial amount is A pounds.

Assigned Nov. 5
Sec. 9.4, problems 19, 21, 23. For problems 19 and 21, (1) check that the given vector functions are linearly independent at t=0 by calculating a determinant; (2) if they are linearly independent, give a general solution to the system.
Sec. 9.5, problems 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 15.
Assigned Nov 7
Sec. 9.5, problems 6, 9, 16. See Hints and answers for answers to 6 and 16.
Sec. 9.6, problems 1, 3, 13a.
Assigned Nov 9
Sec. 5.4, problems 11, 12, 29 a. On 29a, use the directions for 11 and 12.
One more problem: dx/dt = x/2, dy/dt = -2y. Use the directions for 11 and 12.
Warning! If a solution curve of the phase plane equation goes through an equilibrium, then it contains several trajectories. For example, in Figure 5.10 on p. 267, the solutions of the phase plane equation are y=Cx^2. Each consists of three trajectories: one with x<0, one with x>0, and the origin.
For solutions to 12 and the extra problem, see Hints and answers.
Assigned Nov 12
Sec. 12.2, problems 1, 3, 5, 13, 15. For 1, 3, and 5, classify the origin as an attracting or repelling node, attracting or repelling spiral, or saddle. For 13 and 15, use eigenvalues and eigenvectors to sketch the phase plane. Also, use the same method to sketch the phase plane for problem 3.
For answers to 1, 3, and 5, see Hints and answers.
Sec. 9.7, problems 11, 13, 15.
Assigned Nov 26
Sec. 9.6, problem 19.
Sec. 12.3, problems 9, 11, 21. Ignore the directions. Draw the nullclines, find the equilibria, draw the vector field on the nullclines, try to sketch a few typical solution curves. For answers see Hints and answers.
Assigned Nov 28
Sec. 12.3, problems 9, 11, 21. Use linearization to determine the types of the equilibria, and use this information to improve the phase portraits you drew for the previous assignment.
