Vector Calculus, 5th edition, by Marsden and Tromba

Help Sessions:

Tuesday 7-9 pm, DH 1042

Grades/Exams:

Grades will be determines based on two midterms (25% each), homework (15%), and final (35%). 

 

Exams will be take-home, pledged, timed, closed book/notes. 

 

Homework:

Homework will be due each Wednesday at 5 pm.  It can be turned in to me in class, or in box outside my office.  This will be the best way to learn the material, and I recommend doing as many extra problems as possible.  Late homework will not be accepted, but the lowest homework grade will be dropped.  Homework is not pledged, so it is encouraged that you work with others on solving the problems, but each person must write up their own homework.
