Multivariable Calculus, Eighth Edition, James Stewart
You will need an online access code to WebAssign. More info on this below.
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”.

Sample final exams can be found at the following address:
The Calculus III Help Room, located in Whitney Hall (WH-233), is staffed by instructors who teach the course and will be open after the first week of classes. Students can walk in with no appointment and can ask questions of any available instructor.
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

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 final is comprehensive and mandatory. There will be no make-up for the final exam except for extraordinary circumstances. Failure to take the final will result in a grade of F for the class. University photo ID is required to take the exam. 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.
