Text:*Calculus, 7th Edition* by Stewart.

The multivariable calculus course extends many of the techniques developed in the first two semesters of calculus to multiple dimensions, such as are needed to model real-world behaviors and phenomena. Some examples are vectors, rates of change in different directions, and integration along a path, over a surface or volume. A complete list of topics is shown in the schedule below.

**Final exam:** Currently scheduled for Dec. 10 from 1-3 PM in ACD 309.

**Final exam rescheduling policy:**

Finals week for fall 2014 takes place from Monday, December 8th, through Sunday, December 14th. Students are required to be available for their exam and/or complete any assessment during the time stated in the Registrar's Office schedule. If you have a conflict with this time you must visit the Avery Point Student Services Office to discuss the possibility of rescheduling this final. The Office of Student Services REQUIRES advance notice from students who have prior knowledge of a conflict (i.e., bunched finals, religious obligation, legal/medical appointments, etc.) Students must come to Student Services to seek permission to reschedule their final. Please note that vacations, previously purchased tickets or reservations, graduations, social events, misreading the assessment schedule and over-sleeping are not viable reasons for rescheduling a final. If you think that your situation warrants permission to reschedule, please contact the Office of Student Services (Branford House 306) to make an appointment with the Director of Student Services (860) 405-9024 or www.advapp.uconn.edu (choose Avery Point from the drop down menu).

Homework: Homework will follow a weekly cycle. We will use the WebAssign
system: www.webassign.net. No homework grades will be dropped. Late
homework is not accepted without receiving my permission on or before the due
date, which will require a reasonable explanation as to why the homework cannot
be completed on time.

Quizzes: These will be administered weekly
and will be related to the material covered during the previous week (see
the schedule below). The lowest two quiz grades will be dropped. ** There will be only one make-up quiz allowed per student during the semester and only with a valid reason for absence.**

Calculators: The use of calculators will not be permitted on exams or quizzes. Calculators may be used on homework.

**Grading:**

Homework | 30% |

Quizzes | 10% |

Exam 1 | 10% |

Exam 2 | 15% |

Exam 3 | 15% |

Final | 20% |
