Welcome to Math 212: Multivariable Calculus (Fall 2005) 
Instructor: Ron
Buckmire The official version of the syllabus is on this page. A pdf version of the course syllabus is also available. Make sure to check the course news/announcements page often. Use the navigation bar at the top of each page to access the course materials on this site. Textbook: Multivariable Mathematics (4th edition) by Richard Williamson & Hale Trotter. Published by Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2004. Goals of the Class: The goals of the class are to extend our understanding of the Calculus to functions of more than one variable. In particular, we shall learn how to evaluate partial derivatives, double and triple integrals and be exposed to vector field theory. Learning Objectives of the Class
Nature of the Class: The material in the class will begin with a brief introduction to vectors, equations of lines and planes and a review of the algebraic operations on vectors. We shall then proceed through the textbook by going through Chapter 4 (Derivatives), Chapter 5 (Differentiability), Chapter 6 (Vector Differential Calculus), Chapter 7 (Multiple Integration), Chapter 8 (Integrals and Derivatives on Curves) and Chapter 9 (Vector Field Theory). Format
of the Class: We will be
making use of the Mathematica and Derive computer algebra systems. Grades: The final course grade will be composed of the following:
Policies: If you are late to a test, you will only be allowed the time remaining in which to complete your test. Late homework will not be accepted under any condition since the solutions
are made available on the same day that they are collected in class. Other Notes: I will let you know at least one week ahead of time if there may be other days on which class is cancelled.
