### Extra material

Here are the snapshots of the fourier series I discussed in class:

### Homeworks (Due September 6)

 Chapter 1.3 1, 3 Chapter 1.4 1(b and g), 3,10 Chapter 1.5 5,8,11,14 + Read appendix if needed Return only (excuse my french) 1.4.3 and 1.4.10 Honors + 1.5.8 and 1.5.14

### Homeworks II (Due September 13)

 Chapter 2 2.2, 3.2(a and c), 3.3 (a,b and d), 3.5, 4.3, 4.4 turn in 2.3.3 (b), 2.4.3 Honors + 2.4.6 and 2.3.3 (d)

### Homeworks III (Due September 20)

 Chapter 2 4.4 (again), 4.6, 4.7(b), 5.3(a) turn in 2.4.7(b) Honors + 2.5.3(a)

### Homeworks IV (Due September 27)

 Chapter 3 2.1 (a,c,e), 2.4, 3.4,3.9, 3.18, 4.6,4.7 turn in 2.1(e) and compute the fourier serie for the function in 2.1(c) Honors + 3.4.7

### Homeworks V (Due October 4)

 Chapter 3 4.8 and 4.12 Hint: in both exercises do not look for a cosine series but use the appropriate extension (which leads to the cosine series), 4.9, 6.1 turn in 4.12 but do not look directly for a cosine series, instead find the apropriate extension. Honors + Read Section 3.5 and exercise 3.5.1

### Homeworks VI (Due October 11)

 Chapter 4 4.3 but use the technique discussed in class (extension...), 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 4.12 Chapter 8 5.3, 5.4, 5.5(b) turn in 4.4.3 Honors + 8.5.3

### Homeworks VII (Not collected)

 Chapter 10 2.1, 2.2, 3.1(a), 3.2(a), 3.8, 4.3(a)

### Homeworks VIII (due Nov 1)

 Chapter 10 6.1(a), 6.10. turn in all Honors + none

### Homeworks IX (due Nov 10)

 Chapter 10 5.1, 5.2, 5.12, 5.17 Chapter 12 2.2, 2.5(a) turn in 5.12, 12.2.2, 12.2.5(a) Honors + 5.6, 5.17

### Homeworks X (due Nov 17)
