This course is a sequel to MATH 3 and is appropriate for students who have successfully completed an AB calculus curriculum (or the equivalent) in secondary school. Roughly half of the course is devoted to topics in one-variable calculus, selected from techniques of integrations, areas, volumes, numerical integration, sequences and series including Taylor series, ordinary differential equations and techniques of their solution. The second half of the course studies scalar-valued functions of several variables. It begins with the study of vector geometry, equations of lines and planes, and space curves (velocity, acceleration, arclength). The balance of the course is devoted to studying differential calculus of functions of several variables. Topics include limits and continuity, partial derivatives, tangent planes and differentials, the chain rule, directional derivatives and applications, and optimization problems including the use of Lagrange multipliers.
Prerequisites: MATH 3
There will be two midterm exams and a cumulative final exam. The exams are scheduled as follows:
Exam 1 | Tuesday, April 16, 4:30 - 6:30 pm | Silsby 028 |
---|---|---|
Exam 2 | Tuesday, May 7, 4:30 - 6:30 pm | Silsby 028 |
Final Exam | Saturday, June 1, 11:30 am | Carpenter 013 |
If you have a conflict with one of the midterm exams because of a religious observance, scheduled extracurricular activity such as a game or performance [not practice], scheduled laboratory for another course, or similar commitment, please see your instructor as soon as possible. If you must miss a class, it is your responsibility to submit all homework on time.
Academic integrity is at the core of our mission as mathematicians and educators, and we take it very seriously.
Cooperation on homework is permitted and encouraged, but if you work together, do not take any paper away with you; in other words, you can share your thoughts (say on a blackboard), but you have to walk away with only your understanding. In particular, you must write the solution up on your own. Please acknowledge any collaborators at the beginning of each assignment.
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.
Our graduate teaching assistant, Yao Xiao, will run tutorials Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 7 - 9 pm in Kemeny 105, focusing on answering your questions as you work through the homework problems. Past students have found these tutorials immensely helpful!
The course grade will be based upon the scores on the midterm exam, homework, and the final exam as follows:
WeBWorK | 10% |
Written homework | 15% |
Exam 1 | 22.5% |
Exam 2 | 22.5% |
Final Exam | 30% |
Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see their instructor as soon as possible.
