Prerequisite: C or better in Math 241.

Last day to withdraw with a "W": October 7.

The textbook for this course is * Vector Calculus, *, by Miroslav Lovric.
ISBN-13
978-0-471-72569-5;
ISBN-10 0-471-72569-2.

Approximately one half of this course will cover 241 material in greater depth, emphasizing vector fields; the other half will be essentially new material, including differentiation of vector fields (Section 2.4), change of variables in multiple integrals (Sections 6.4 and 6.5), and surface integrals (Chapters 7 and 8). There will be material covered from all eight chapters, but some will be emphasized much more than others.

Only simple calculators (in other words, those that may be used in taking SAT tests) are needed for this course, and they will be needed only a small fraction of the time, outside of class. Neither the quizzes, nor the hour tests, nor the final exam will require their use, although they may save some time on a few problems.

The course grade will be based on quizzes, homework, 3 one-hour tests, a final exam, and attendance. Details on this and on various policies can be found here in pdf format.

** Learning Outcomes: ** Students will master concepts and
solve problems based upon the topics covered in the course, including
the following: vector fields, line and path integrals, orientation and
parametrization of lines and surfaces, differentiation of vector fields,
change of variables in double and triple integrals, Jacobians,
oriented surface integrals, theorems of Green, Gauss, and Stokes.

#### Extra Credit Problems

**strictly on your own,**except that I am willing to give you advice. You are not to discuss them with anyone else.There is no due date for extra credit, but once a fully correct solution is handed back, the problem is no longer eligible for extra credit.

**This is true of any problem crossed out below.**If you can't quite get the solution but have some ideas, hand them in for partial credit. I will keep adding to your score as you improve your work on it.1. [10 points altogether] Number 34 on page 62

2. [8 points] Number 16 on page 416, using squares of the form [0, a]^2

3. [8 points] Number 22a in Section 5.1.

4. [12 points] Number 24 in Section 6.5.

5. [8 points] Number 8 in Section 7.3.

6. [12 points]

**originally 10 points**Number 14 in Section 7.4.
