*Multivariable Calculus*, 9th Edition, James Stewart

You will need an online access code to WebAssign. More info on this below.

- Chapter 12: Vectors and the Geometry of Space
- Chapter 13: Vector Functions
- Chapter 14: Partial Derivatives
- Chapter 15: Multiple Integrals
- Chapter 16: Vector Calculus

For each section of material covered there will be an assignment of problems on WebAssign. Your WebAssign homework counts towards your grade. Study groups are encouraged, but students should not become too dependent on others. Watching the instructor, or other students, do the problems will not be enough to learn the material. It will be necessary for you to do many exercises yourself in order to be successful on the exams. Attempts to solve homework problems provide the best way to learn the material and to prepare for exams.

WebAssign is an online homework system which includes an e-book version of our text. If you have a multi-term access code or “Cengage Unlimited” from when taking 226/227, then you do not need to purchase another one. If you buy the book through the Binghamton University Bookstore then it comes with an access code. If you do not wish to buy the textbook package through the Bookstore, then you can purchase ($119.99) “Cengage Unlimited”, 1 term -4 months. This comes with the ebook and can also be purchased through our Bookstore. “Cengage Unlimited” also comes with the option to rent a hard copy of the textbook by just paying for shipping and handling. You'll have temporary free access to WebAssign for two weeks into the semester without an access code. All information regarding how to login with Class Key and purchase an access code can be found here WebAssign Student Quick Start Guide

Your username is your Binghamton University username and the institution code is “binghamton”.

Math 222, Math 227, or Math 230

Develop theoretical and practical skills for multivariable calculus. Specifically, students are expected to be able to demonstrate the following:

- Visualize geometry in three-dimensional space
- Find and apply vector and scalar equations of lines and planes in three-dimensional space
- Understand the calculus of vector-valued functions
- Solve unconstrained and constrained optimization problems
- Find and interpret partial derivatives, directional derivatives, and gradients
- Set up and evaluate double and triple integrals in rectangular, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates
- Set up and evaluate line and surface integrals in addition to applying Green's, Stokes', and Divergence Theorem

The final grade will be determined as follows:

- Test 1, 20% (March 10)
- Test 2, 20% (April 9)
- Test 3, 20% (May 7)
- Final Exam, 25% (see the schedule)
- HW/Quizzes, 15%

(subject to change and adjustment at your instructor's discretion)

There is free tutoring offered though University Tutoring Services. All information regarding tutoring can be found here: http://www.binghamton.edu/clt/tutoring-services/index.html

If you have test anxiety, the Discovery Program has helpful information regarding test-taking strategies, found here: http://www.binghamton.edu/discovery/resources/index.html

If you need accommodations to to a disability, please see your instructor with documentation from Services for Students with Disabilities. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Cheating is considered a very serious offense. According to the University Catalog, cheating consists of: “Giving or receiving unauthorized help before, during or after an examination”. The full strength of Binghamton Academic Honesty Policy will be applied to anyone caught cheating. This may include failing the course, and further disciplinary action.

The shift to remote and hybrid teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic has required that both instructors and students make changes to their normal working protocols for courses. Students are asked to practice extra care and attention in regard to academic honesty, with the understanding that all cases of plagiarism, cheating, multiple submission, and unauthorized collaboration are subject to penalty. Students may not collaborate on exams or assignments, directly or through virtual consultation, unless the instructor gives specific permission to do so. Posting an exam, assignment, or answers to them on an online forum (before, during, or after the due date), in addition to consulting posted materials, constitutes a violation of the university’s Honesty policy. Likewise, unauthorized use of live assistance websites, including seeking “expert” help for specific questions during an exam, can be construed as a violation of the honesty policy. All students should be familiar with the University’s Student Academic Honesty Code.

Please note that no calculators are allowed during exams.

This course is a 4-credit course, which means that students are expected to do at least *12.5 hours of course-related work or activity each week* during the semester. This includes scheduled class lecture/discussion meeting times as well as time spent completing assigned readings, studying for tests and examinations, participating in lab sessions, preparing written assignments, and other course-related tasks.
