Assigned Jan. 31
Sec. 3.2, problems 1, 3, 5, 7, 19. In problem 7, assume that 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.
Sec. 3.4, problems 1, 5, 13, 25a - e.
Assigned Feb. 9

Assigned April 3
Sec. 9.5, problems 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 13, 15, 16. See Hints and answers for answers to 1, 6, and 16.
Assigned Apr. 10
Sec. 9.5, problem 9.

Sec. 9.7, problems 11, 13, 15.
Assigned Apr. 12
Sec. 5.4, problems 11, 12, 29a. 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.
For solutions to 12 and the extra problem, see Hints and answers.
Assigned Apr. 19
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. 12.3, problems 9, 11, 21. Ignore the directions. Draw the nullclines, find the equilibria, show typical vectors in the regions determined by the nullclines, try to sketch a few typical solution curves. See Hints and answers for complete phase portraits, but your answers will not be this complete yet. We'll improve your answers next week.
Assigned Apr 24
Sec. 12.3, problems 9, 11, 21. Ignore the directions. Finish these problems by using linearization to determine the types of the equilibria, and using this information to improve your phase portraits. For answers see Hints and answers.
