This course is the third semester of a three semester sequence in calculus for engineers, physical scientists and mathematicians. It is basically calculus done in several variables, with the emphasis on the case of two independent variables; e.g. z = f(x, y). After studying differentiation and integration we will cover vector calculus; e.g. the theorems of Gauss, Green and Stokes. These are higher dimensional analogs of the fundamental theorem of calculus. The material in this course is important, elegant and (to be frank) difficult. We will move rapidly through the first (easier) part of the course in order to give ample time to the last two chapters (the difficult part of the course).
The goals are first to learn the material and obtain a good grade and second have some fun along the way. You should have a good knowledge of Calculus 1 and Calculus 22 (math 021 and math 022) as well as the needed time to spend on this course.
There will be two exams, about 5 quizzes and computer graded homework. Bonus points will be given for attendance
