MATH 200
Multivariable Calculus
Winter 2017

COURSE PAGE






This is the common page for the eight sections (linked below) of MATH 200 in Term 1 of the 2017W session (September to December 2017). Your grade in the course will be determined by your grades in

  • weekly webwork assignments (worth 10% of overall grade)
  • 5 in class quizes (worth 15% of overall grade)
  • 1 midterm exam (worth 25% of overall grade)
  • 1 final exam (worth 50% of overall grade)


  • All The basic information on these can be found below. The midterm and quizes will be held during regular class time. It is your own responsibility to also check your own section website for any section specific instructions regarding these and for other announcements in general. In particular, different sections will have different quizes and midterms and your grades in these assesments may be scaled to ensure fairness across the different sections of the course. The final exam however will be the same for all sections.

    PRIMARY TEXTBOOK


    At times, especially in the last few weeks of the course, I will also refer to the following secondary online textbooks.

    SECONDARY TEXTBOOK #1

    SECONDARY TEXTBOOK #2


    Our reference and use of these free online textbooks will be in accordance with the creative commons liscence. In addition to these, any standard textbook in multivariable calculus will also serve as a reference for most of the topics in this course. This includes the textbook by Stewart, used for this course in recent past years.
