## COURSE DESCRIPTION

WHAT IS MATH 20C? This is the third calculus course for students of mathematics, science, and engineering. In this course we examine topics of elementary calculus from a multidimensional perspective. There will be four major themes: 1) Vectors and vector operations; 2) Derivation and integration of vector valued functions of one variable; 3) Partial derivatives of functions of several variables; 4) Integration of functions of several variables.

TEXT
Stewart, J., Multivariable Calculus - Early Transcendentals, 5th ed. (Brooks/Cole - Thomson Learning, 2003). You are expected to read the text BEFORE each lecture.

• No notes, textbooks, calculators are allowed during exams. No make-up exams will be given and no late homework will be accepted. Cheating on an exam results in 0 points for that exam, as well as further disciplinary action. Please read very carefully the following ACADEMIC INTEGRITY GUIDELINES.
• Midterms 1+2: 20% each; Final Exam: 40%; Homework: 20%. The grading will be done on a curve, the median corresponding to a B-/C+.

## GETTING HELP

Help with mathematical problems:
• Section:  Ask questions in section --- this is one of the main reasons why sections exist.
• Office Hours:  You are strongly advised to take full advantage of your professor's and ta's office hours.
• Classmates:  Sometimes a classmate can help. Sometimes you can learn by working out problems together with your classmates.
Help with personal problems which affect your class work:
• Talk to the professor or, if appropriate, your college provost.
