Textbook:

Vector Calculus, 5th edition, by Marsden and Tromba

 

Grades/Exams:

There will be two midterm take-home exams given on the first and second Friday of the course.  They will be closed-book, timed, pledged, and will be due the following Monday at 1 pm.  The final exam will also be take-home and given out the last day of class.  It will be due on the following date: Monday, June 5th, 1 pm.

 

Homework will be due each day at 5 pm.  This will be the best way to learn the material.  On the homework schedule, there are ‘Recommended’/’Turn-in’ problems listed.  I highly recommend doing ALL the recommended problems, as practice is the best way to understand the material.  Your homework grade will be based solely on the ‘Turn-In’ problems, but exams are not limited to just this material.  You will be responsible for learning all concepts covered in class and used in the ‘Recommended’ problems.  Homework will be graded for completion and a percentage of the problems will be graded for correctness.

 

The final grade for the course will be determined by your performance on the homework, the two midterm exams, and the final exam according to the following percentages:

Midterms – 25 % each

Homework – 15%

Final – 35%
