Course coordinator: Alexander Borisov

Textbook:

Multivariable Calculus, Eighth Edition, James Stewart
You will need the online code.

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

Prerequisite:

Math 222, Math 227, or Math 230

Course Objectives:

Develop theoretical and practical skills for multivariable calculus.

Evaluation:

The final grade will be determined as follows:

  • Test 1, 15% (Week 5)
  • Test 2, 15% (Week 10)
  • Test 3, 15% (Week 14)
  • Quizzes, 15%
  • Homework, 5%
  • Final, 35% (TBD)*

*Additionally, the following One-Letter-Grade Rule will apply to all students: The grade in the course will not exceed the grade on the final examination by more than one grade point. (For example, if you get C- on the final examination, your best possible grade is B-).

Tentative Schedule:
