Multivatiable Calculus by Edwards and Penney.

Topics we will cover

We will cover classic topics in multivariable calculus. Partial differentiation, double and triple integrals, vectors and much more.
The sections from the book we'll cover are the following:


The course grade will be based on:
Quizzes 15%,
Midterms 45% (15% each),
Final Exam 40%.


There will be written homework roughly every week. The most recent homework will be posted in the announcements and a copy of all homeworks can be accessed here.
Collaboration in the homework is permitted. The homework won't be turned in, instead there will be quizzes to test you on the homework exercises. There will be approximately 15 quizzes throughout the semester (roughly every week). The quizzes will test on questions similar to those assigned on the homework.


There will be three midterms and one final exam. On the midterms and the final exam you must work on the problems on your own. No collaboration permitted in the exams.

The (tentative) dates are:


Students are expected to come to every lecture and every exam.

If the dates of the exams conflict with Lake Forest approved events, inform me as soon as possible.
