WELCOME TO MATH 212!!

Textbook
Vector Calculus, 5th edition, by Marsden and Tromba
 
We will follow the book pretty closely, so it is important to have a copy.  Our goal will to be to cover most of chapters 1-8.
 
 
Course OVerview
We shall study how notions from single variable calculus apply to functions of more than one variable.
Such notions include limits, continuity, derivatives and integration.
Our goal is to cover theorems by Green, Stokes, and Gauss and how they are applied.
 
 
Attendance
I do not have a strict attendance policy, but it is very important for you to attend class!  The course is only 13 days and hence is very dense. Missing one day is like missing an entire week in a regular semester and will cause you to fall behind in the course.
I will try to keep the course webpage updated, but you are responsible for any announcements made in class.
 
DISABILITY SUPPORT
Any student with a documented disability needing academic adjustments or accommodations is requested to speak with me during the first two weeks of class. All discussions will remain confidential. Students with disabilities should also contact Disability Support Services in the Ley Student Center.
HOMEWORK, EXAMS AND GRADES
There will be a small amount of homework assigned everyday.  This will vary from problems out of the book, handouts, or in-class assignments (such as presenting problems on the board, group work, etc...).  
 
There will be two midterm exams and one final.
 
Grades will be assigned on the standard scale and may be subject to adjustment at the end of the semester.  Grades are determined by the following:
 
Homework: 30%
Each Midterm Exam: 20%
Final: 30%
 
You can find a tentative schedule at tentschedule.pdf and the homework at here.
