Advanced Calculus II
- A score of 68% or higher in MATH 226.
Robert A. Adams and Christopher Essex, Calculus: Several Variables
(or Calculus: A Complete Course) eighth edition or any earlier edition.
(Some earlier editions have Adams as the sole author.)
I will post all handouts, problem sets, etc. on the web
curves, velocity, acceleration, arc length,
curvature, tangent, normal, binormal, planetary motion.
- Vector Fields and Line Integrals
vector fields, field lines, conservative fields,
- Surface integrals (§ 15.5, 15.6):
surfaces, surface area, flux integrals..
- Integral Theorems (§ 16):
gradient, divergence and curl, vector identities,
divergence theorem, Green's theorem, Stokes' theorem, applications.
- Differential forms (web notes):
General Stokes' Theorem (if time permits).
- There will be two midterms (tentatively scheduled for Wednesday,
February 10 and Wednesday, March 16) accounting for about 40% of the final mark.
- There will be weekly problem sets accounting for
about 10% of the final mark.
- TThe final exam will account for about 50% of the final mark.
- Grades will probably be scaled.
- Students are allowed to consult one another concerning
homework problems, but solutions submitted for credit must be written by the
student in his or her own words. Copying solutions from another student, from
the web or from any other source, and turning them in as your own is a
violation of the Academic Code.
- Missing a homework or midterm results in a mark of 0,
unless you have a serious documented reason (an illness,
a death in the family, etc.).
- Missed finals are not handled by me or the Mathematics
Department. Students with legitimate reasons for missing the final exam
should request a "Standing Deferred" status through their Faculty.
