You can visit any Calculus III instructor in the help room, and I encourage you to do so! Different folks think differently; maybe someone else thinks more like you, and you can get help from them too.
Multivariable Calculus (8e) by Stewart
The textbook (as an e-book) comes with a subscription to WebAssign, so just get that…
See the official grading distribution.
Reasoning in three dimensions. Calculus of functions in several variables. We will cover most of chapters 12 - 16 in the textbook, together with some small excursions as I see fit.
This class uses WebAssign for online homework assignments. You are expected to check WebAssign daily, and to know when assignments are due. I will NOT notify you of assignment due dates (all due dates are already posted).
Email me if you need the key to our class in WebAssign.
I sometimes assign written homework to collect in class.
Here are some practice problems (updated 11 November 2019) I like. Check back for updates…
Quizzes will be given frequently throughout the course. Quizzes are intended to check that you understand basic concepts from previous classes and from assigned reading.
I typically grade quiz questions on a 5-point scale. The following is a ROUGH guide to interpreting each score.
Here are some useful technological tools for this class, together with some descriptions.
This section is a record of what I have covered and plan to cover in my sections. See also the official schedule.
