Textbook
Textbook: Multivariable
Calculus  Early Transcendentals, by James Stewart, 6th edition
(Note: We will not use the
online homework system and you need not purchase access to it.)
Course Description
This course extends the concepts learned in Calculus for functions
in one variable to functions involving several variables. This includes
the study of two and three dimensional vector algebra; limits,
differentiation, and integration of functions of several variables;
vector differential calculus; and line and surface integrals.
Homework will be assigned after every section, discussed in class on
Mondays, collected on Tuesdays, and returned the following class.
Solutions to selected homework exercises will be handed out at that
time. For
that reason, late homework will not usually be accepted.
Homework assignments consist of individual practice exercises from the
textbook (see Syllabus below) and occasional group projects. You are
encouraged to work with other students in this class on all your
homework assignments. Group projects, one report per group, will be
graded for exam
points. Textbook
homework assignments, handed in individually, will not be graded, but
will carry exam points
(this will be explained in more
details
in class).
Calculator
Policy
You
will need to show your work on exams and homework
assignments, but may use graphic calculators, in all cases, to double
check
your answers and save time on routine calculations. The recommended
graphic calculator is TI83 (best value for the money) but others will
do as well. Note that symbolic
calculators, for example TI89, are not allowed on exams by the mathematics
department
calculator
policy.
There
will be two inclass exams during the semester and a Final exam. None
is strictly
cumulative, but there will be overlap of material between the exams.
NO MAKEUP EXAMS unless there is a very serious emergency for which you
provide proof. Quizzes will be given only if necessary.

Extra Help: The Q Center
I
encourage you to come to my office for help during office hours, and I
will be happy to find other times when we can meet if my office hours
schedule does not fit your schedule. However, there may be times when
you need help
and I am not available. A good source of extra help is the UConn Q Center. Check their
website for hours and locations. In addition to dropin free tutoring,
the Q Center also maintains a list of private tutors.
The actual pace of the course and homework
assignments may be slightly
different than listed in the syllabus below. It will depend on the
students' response to the material. Changes will appear on this webpage
as they occur. Homework assignments will be given
in class after every section. In addition to the sections' homework,
there will be a number of group projects highlighting
applications of the material.

A fundamental tenet of all educational institutions is academic
honesty; academic work depends upon respect for and acknowledgment of
the research and ideas of others. Misrepresenting someone else's work
as one's own is a serious offense in any academic setting and it will
not be condoned. Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to,
providing or receiving assistance in a manner not authorized by the
instructor in the creation of work to be submitted for academic
evaluation (e.g. papers, projects, and examinations); any attempt to
influence improperly (e.g. bribery, threats)any member of the faculty,
staff, or administration of the University in any matter pertaining to
academics or research; presenting, as one's own,the ideas or words of
another for academic evaluation; doing unauthorized academic work for
which another person will receive credit or be evaluated; and
presenting the same or substantially the same papers or projects in two
or more courses without the explicit permission of the instructors
involved. A student who knowingly assists another student in committing
an act of academic misconduct shall be equally accountable for the
violation, and shall be subject to the sanctions and other remedies
described in The Student Code.
