A good analogy is with language: many native English speakers would score worse on a test of English grammar than non-native speakers because they have never had to think about English grammar. If you are familiar enough with a language you can get by without it. Analysis is the grammar of calculus. To learn it properly you need to re-evaluate a lot of what you know in a critical light. The point of the first four exercises, taken from Solow, is to put you in a critical frame of mind. The point of the remaining exercises is to get you thinking about calculus and symbolic manipulation, hopefully in a fresh way. 1. Do problem 4.14 in Solow. (Dont write too much.) 2. Look at the proposition and proof in problem 5.9 in Solow. (Ignore his instruc- tions.) Suppose you are grading that proof out of 10. How many points do you give it, and why?...
