Textbook: Robert A. Adams and Christopher Essex, Calculus: Several Variables (or Calculus: A Complete Course), 8th ed. Pearson, 2013, ISBN 978-0-321-87741-3.

Course topics: Your course mark will be based on homework (10%), two midterm exams (20% each), and the final exam (50%). The grades may be slightly scaled at the end of the course.

Examinations: There will be two in-class 50-minute midterms, scheduled on Wednesdays, February 5 and March 12, and a 2.5 hour final exam in April. The date of the final examination will be announced by the Registar later in the term. Attendance at the final examination is required, so be careful about making other committments (such as travel) before this date is confirmed. All examinations will be strictly closed-book: no formula sheets, calculators, or other aids will be allowed.

Homeworks: There will be 5 homework assigmnents, due tentatively on Wednesdays, January 15, January 29, February 26, March 19, and Monday, March 31. Each homework will be announced and posted here at least a week in advance. The homeworks are to be handed in at the beginning of class. If you cannot come to class, you may drop off your homework at your instructor's office prior to the start of class. Late assignments will not be accepted. Solutions will be posted on the course webpage immediately after the lecture. To allow for minor illnesses and other emergencies, the lowest homework score will be dropped.

Academic concession: Missing a midterm, or handing in a homework after the deadline, will result in a mark of 0. Exceptions may be granted in two cases: prior consent of the instructor, or a documented medical reason. Your course mark will then be based on your remaining coursework.
