09/27/2010     I have decided to post notes containing the summary of what happened in class each week. The summary for week 0 is posted now. In the future, I will try to get the notes up during weekends. They will be linked from the calendar as well.

09/27/2010     Throughout the quarter, the exam and homework scores will be posted on WebCT (see tab at the top of this page). I have also enabled a discussion forum on the website so you can communicate with your fellow students in the course. If you need to switch sections, please use this feature to find somebody to switch with.

09/26/2010     The exams page is up. It has preliminary info about the first midterm.

09/24/2010     The first homework is posted.

09/08/2010     The required textbook is Multivariable Calculus by Jon Rogawski OR Calculus: Early Transcendentals by the same author. The bookstore lists them both as "required", but you only need one of them. We will cover parts of chapters 11-15, which are contained in both books. If you happen to have the right edition for one of them, keep that. If not, the Multivariable Calculus is lighter and cheaper. And quite sufficient. By the way, I won't use the questionnaires that come with one of the books sold by the bookstore.
