Course description

This course covers differential, integral, and vector calculus for functions of several variables. The mathematical tools and methods we will develop are applied extensively in engineering, economics, and throughout the physical sciences. Course topics include: vectors, partial derivatives, multivariable optimization, line integrals and multiple integrals, vector fields, Green's theorem, and Stokes's theorem.

Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance, scheduled extracurricular activity such as a game or performance, scheduled laboratory for another course, or a similar commitment that conflicts with one of the exams, please meet with your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.

Homework Policy


The course grade will be based upon the exams and the homework as follows:

Webwork 10%
Written homework 10%
Exam 1 25%
Exam 2 25%
Final Exam 30%
Total 100%

The Honor Principle

Academic integrity is at the core of our mission as mathematicians and educators, and we take it very seriously. We also believe in working and learning together.

Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you.

On written homework, you are encouraged to work together, and you may get help from others, but you must write up the answers yourself. If you are part of a group of students that produces an answer to a problem, you may not just copy the group's answer: you must write up the answer individually, written up in your own way.

On exams, you may not give or receive help from anyone. Exams in this course are closed book, and no notes, calculators or other electronic devices are permitted.


The teaching assistants for this course are mathematics graduate students Benjamin Breen, David Freund, and Sam Schiavone. They will be available to answer questions and, in particular, to help with your homework on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings, 7-9 pm in Kemeny 006. These tutorials will begin on Tuesday, September 16.

Also note that the Tutor Clearinghouse will have private one-on-one tutors available for Math 11. The tutors are recruited on the basis that they have done well in the subject, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center. If a student receives financial aid, the College will pay for three hours of tutoring per week. If you would like to have a tutor, please go to 301 Collis and fill out an application as early in the term as possible.

Special Considerations

If you have a disability of any sort and may need disability-related classroom accommodations, please make an appointment to see your instructor as soon as possible. All conversations will remain confidential. You can stop by the Student Accessibility Services Office in Collis Center to register for support services.
