Course Description :
This is an honours course. We plan to cover Chapters 11, 15, and 16 of the textbook and supplementary notes on differential forms. Topics include paramatrized curves, Frenet frames, Kepler's laws, vector fields, line integrals, surface integrals, classical theorems of Green, Stokes and Gauss, and an introduction to higher-dimensional generalizations via differential forms.
Your course mark will be based on homework,
the midterms and the final exam:
Missed Exam Policy: Please make sure you do not make travel plans, work plans, etc., without regard to the examination schedule in this class. There will be no make-up or alternate exams.
If you miss a midterm, your score will be recorded as 0, unless you have a serious documented reason (an illness, a death in the family, etc.), in which case you should discuss your circumstances with me as soon as possible, and in advance of the test.
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.
Academic Integrity: The Mathematics Department strictly enforces UBC's Academic Integrity Code.
Please see me as soon as possible if you need any special accommodations.
