You are permitted to use your calculator to solve an equation, find the derivative of a function
at a point, or calculate the value of a definite integral. However, you must clearly indicate the
setup of your question, namely the equation, function, or integral you are using. If you use
other built-in features or programs, you must show the mathematical steps necessary to

Show all of your work, even though the question may not explicitly remind you to do so. Clearly
label any functions, graphs, tables, or other objects that you use. Justifications require that you
give mathematical reasons, and that you verify the needed conditions under which relevant

correctness and completeness of your methods as well as your answers. Answers without
