Course description: (From the course catalog) "Theory and applications of limits, derivatives, and integrals of functions of one, two, and three variables. Curves in two and three dimensional space, vector functions, double and triple integrals, polar, cylindrical, spherical coordinates. Path integration and Greene's Theorem."
Course goals: At the end of the semester, you will be able to:
- Perform standard computations in multivariable calculus.
- Interpret the functions and operations of multivariable calculus geometrically, and draw simple examples (by hand and with software).
- Connect the calculations and geometry that we do with the theoretical concepts of the course.
Prerequisites: Math 112 or 114, or the equivalent, or permission of the instructor. Math 211 is helpful (before or concurrently).
Course readings: The text for the course is Stewart's Calculus (any edition). You can buy either the version with both single- and multivariable calculus or the version with just the multivariable chapters.
Extra help: Everybody needs help sometimes! Aside from office hours, here are some other resources for this course:
- The Spinelli Center: The Spinelli Center has some daytime drop-in tutoring help (see the list here and check whether the Q-tutor on duty has taken calculus III). It also holds special review sessions for Calculus I and II. You may especially like differentiation (Sept. 16 from 7-9pm) or integration (Sept. 17 from 7-9pm). Complete info is here.
- Math TAs: Math TAs are available Sunday-Thursday from 7-9pm in the Math Forum in Burton Hall. Many can help with calculus III.
- Review sessions: We will schedule a weekly review session plus special review sessions near exams.
