** Course Structure:** The class lectures will be MWF 11-11:50am
in Room 127 of Dane Smith Hall. The course
will cover most of the material in chapters 10-14
in the book. It is very helpful to read the material before it is discussed in
class. Here you can find the __syllabus__.
You should register in __recitation session__
that will meet once a week on either Tuesday or Thursday.
In case of schedule conflicts you should talk to me.

** Course content:** The course will
cover most of the material in chapters 10-14 in the textbook. It is very
helpful to read the material before it is discussed in class.
This is a continuation of
Calculus II. We will assume working knowledge on one-variable calculus,
that is: basic functions, limits, differentiation and integration.
In this course we will study calculus in two and three variables.
First we will get acquainted with the geometry of the plane and the space,
we will introduce vector notation and vector operations. Next we will
study vector-valued functions, space curves and motion in space (this is
still one-variable calculus but embbeded in 3-dimensional space).
Next we will start our study in depth of functions of several variables,
limits and continuity, partial derivatives, differentiability, and
applications to extreme value problems. Next comes multiple integration:
double and triple integrals and their applications to calculate areas,
volumes, masses, moments, etc. We will also learn how to integrate in other
systems of coordinates: polar, cylindrical and spherical coordinates.
The final topic we will cover is integration in vector fields: this includes
line integrals, vector fields, work, circulation and flux as well
as the analogue to the fundamental theorem of calculus (FTC) in two
dimensions, namely Green's Theorem. Time permitting we will oversee
surface integrals and the very important
three dimensional analogues of the FTC, namely: Stoke's Theorem and
the Divergence Theorem.

**Resources:** There are many resources to help you succeed in this
course. First, if you are having problems, immediately contact your lecturer
and your laboratory instructor, they can help you. You can also schedule
an appointment with one of the academic support centers on campus:

CAPS:Center for Academic Program Support, located on the third floor of Zimmerman Library (277-4560)

MEP:Minority Engineering Program at the School of Engineering, Engineering Annex, Room 210 (277-8795)

CATS:Counseling and Therapy Services, located in the Student Health Center (277-4537)

** Homework:** Work as many odd numbered problems in the
text as possible (in the
__
syllabus__
you will find an extensive selection
of them).
At a minimum do *all* the problems listed by number on the
__Math 264 Homework Problems__. Every week the problems corresponding
to the previous week will be collected and 2 or 3 of the problems will be
graded at random and handed back to you promptly.
You are encouraged to discuss the homework with each other, but make sure
you understand how to work the problems yourself because you will have no
help on the exams and quizzes. You learn mathematics by doing it, the more
problems you do the better you will grasp the material.

** Quizzes:** Almost every week you will
have a quiz in your recitation class
The problems
on the quizzes will be similar to the homework problems.
Your grade on the quizzes is the average of all but your lowest two
quizzes grades. There will be no makeups for quizzes.

** Exams:** There will be three midterms in
class as listed
in the syllabus, and a
comprehensive final exam.
The final exam is scheduled on
Wednesday Dec 13th, 10:00am-12:00noon, DSH 127.

**Calculator:** The TI-83 calculator or similar
will be allowed on exams and
quizzes, but the questions will be designed so that use of a calculator is not
crucial. Symbolic calculators will not be allowed on the tests, quizzes, or
the final exam.

** Grades:** Your final grade will be determined by adding your total
points in the course. There will be a total of 600 possible points
Points are obtained by adding your scores on the midterm exams
(100 points each), quizzes (100 points), homework (30 points),
and the final exam (170 points). You must pass the final to
get a grade of C or better in the course.

**Makeup Policy:** Makeup exams will be given if an
exam is missed for a documented valid reason.
Valid reasons include illness, family emergency, and active
participation in scholarly or athletic events.
Invalid excuses include oversleeping and other tests during the
same week.
If an exam is missed for a legitimate reason, an attempt *must* be made
to contact me by the day of the exam (preferably before the exam is given)
to let me know of your difficulty.
If you must miss a exam due to a prearranged conflict, let me
know about it so that we can arrange an alternate exam date.

**Prerequisite:**
A grade of C or better in Math 163.
If you do not meet this requirement, you will be removed from the
class rolls.

**Attendance Policy:**
If we have no record of your attendance during the first three weeks
of classes, you will be removed from the class rolls.

**
Americans with Disabilities Act:**
Qualified students with disabilities needing appropriate academic
adjustments should contact me as soon as possible to ensure your needs are
met in a timely manner. Handouts are available in alternative accessible
formats upon request.
