COURSE DESCRIPTION
WHAT IS MATH 20C? This is the third calculus
course for students of mathematics,
science, and engineering. In this course we examine topics of
elementary
calculus from a multidimensional perspective. There will be four
major themes: 1) Vectors and vector operations; 2)
Derivation and integration of vector valued functions of one variable;
3) Partial derivatives of functions of several
variables; 4) Integration of functions of several
variables.
TEXT Stewart, J., Multivariable
Calculus - Early Transcendentals, 5th ed. (Brooks/Cole - Thomson
Learning, 2003). You
are expected to read the text BEFORE each lecture.

- No notes, textbooks,

are allowed during exams. No make-up exams will be given and no late
homework will be accepted. Cheating on an exam results in 0 points for
that exam, as well as
further disciplinary action. Please
read very carefully the following ACADEMIC
INTEGRITY GUIDELINES.
GRADING POLICY
- Midterms 1+2: 20% each; Final Exam: 40%;
Homework: 20%. The grading will be done on a curve, the median
corresponding to a B-/C+.
GETTING HELP
Help with mathematical problems:
- Section: Ask
questions in section --- this is one of the main reasons why sections
exist.
- Office Hours: You
are strongly advised to take full advantage of your professor's and
ta's office
hours.
- Classmates: Sometimes
a classmate can help. Sometimes you can learn by working out problems
together with your classmates.
Help with personal problems which
affect your class work:
- Talk to the professor or, if appropriate, your
college provost.
