Vector valued functions of one variable (Chapter 13):
Parameterized curves, velocity, acceleration, arc length
(includes curvature, normal and binormal vectors, tangential and normal components of acceleration).
Vector valued functions of several variables (Chapter 16):
Vector fields, line integrals, conservative fields, fundamental theorem of line integrals,
Green's theorem, gradient, curl, divergence,
parameterized surfaces, suface area, surface integrals,
Stoke's theorem, divergence theorem.
The grade is composed of:
or the final exam grade minus 10 points
(whichever is higher).
- final exam (50%),
- two midterms (30%),
- homework and quizzes (20%),
The second option is a safety net --- even if you did poorly during the semester,
you can still have a good grade by doing well on the final exam.
There will be no webwork.
Final grades may be subject to scaling.
Homework and Quizzes
Homework will be published every Monday and Thursday. On the following Monday or Thursday, either
the written homework will be collected to be marked, or there will be a 10-15 minutes quiz based on the homework.
This will be decided randomly in class.
The two lowest homework/quizzes grades will be dropped.
There will be two midterms, each determining 15% of the final grade.
The midterms will take place in class in the following dates:
Please report conflicts and hardships as soon as possible.
