Mathematics 222 Spring 2007 Assignment 1 due Friday January 26 In addition to the problems listed under “please hand in” , you should also turn in extra problems EP 1) and parts abc of EP 2). The “also consider” problems should not be turned in, but may show up on exams. Please read sections 1.2, 1.3, and 1.5 of Chapter 1 and at least the ﬁrst section of Chapter 2. Much of chapter 1 is likely familiar from your previous courses, though some of the notation may be a bit diﬀerent. Please focus on the diﬀerent ways of describing lines and planes as well as how to do basic geometry with them. Make sure you understand the geometric idea of the cross product. You needn’t worry about cylindrical and spherical coordinates for now. But if they are unfamiliar, be prepared to come back to section 1.4 when we study change of variables (for integrals) to these coordinate systems in
