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, but from a multidimensional perspective. We will visit 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 Jon Rogawski, Multivariable Calculus, W. H. Freeman and Company 2008.
You
are expected to read the text BEFORE each lecture.

No notes, textbooks, calculators
are allowed during exams. No makeup exams will be given and no late
homework will be accepted. Cheating on an exam results in 0 points for

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.
