WHAT IS MATH 20C? This is the third calculus
course for students of mathematics,
science, and engineering. In this course we examine topics of
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

No notes, textbooks, calculators
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
- 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+.

Help with personal problems which
affect your class work:
- Section: Ask
questions in section --- this is one of the main reasons why sections
- Office Hours: You
are strongly advised to take full advantage of your professor's and
- Classmates: Sometimes
a classmate can help. Sometimes you can learn by working out problems
together with your classmates.
- Talk to the professor or, if appropriate, your
