Green's theorem, Stokes' theorem, and the divergence theorem.
Classes 3 hours plus recitation 1.5 hours a week. 1 semester.
MATH 2310 (Intermediate Cal I), or both MATH 1212 (Cal II for Engineers) and MATH 2301 (Linear Algebra for Engineers).
The required text is Calculus: Early Transcendentals, Fifth Edition by James Stewart (please note that we will be using the Fifth Edition).
Your final mark will be computed using the following formula:
20% Quizzes (held during recitations) 30% Midterm (one, evening of 28 Feb) 50% Exam (3hours, scheduled by the University)
Here is a text file containing all the course marks recorded so far. Note that it does not contain any identifying information. The rows are sorted sorted according to the score on Quiz 1. To determine the row which contains your marks, you must already know your score on Quiz 1.
Here are some further details about how final marks are tabulated.
Each quiz, except for quiz 3, was marked out of 20. Your mark on quiz 3 was converted to a mark out of 20 like so: q3 = x/24*20. Suppose your quiz marks are q1,q2,...,q10, your midterm mark is m and your exam mark is f. Your overall quiz mark is Q=(SUM(q1,q2,...,q10)MIN(q1,q2,...,q10))/(20*9) (i.e. your worst quiz mark is thrown out.) The midterm was marked out of 100. Let M=m/100. The exam was marked out of 130. Let F=f/130. Your final mark in the course is MAX(20*Q+30*M+50*F, 20*Q+10*M+70*F) This mark is converted into a letter grade.
Here is the date, time and location of the midterm:
Thursday, 28 February Sobey Building, Room 255 and Loyola Building, Room 176 6:30pm  8:30pm
The midterm will cover the material on problem sets 1,2,3,4,5,6.
You will be allowed to bring into the midterm one side of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper containing whatever notes, formulas, etc. you wish. You will also be allowed to use a nonprogrammable calculator (i.e. graphing calculators, cellphone calculators and so on are not allowed). You are responsible for knowing definitions (e.g. if I ask you to compute the angle between two vectors, then you need to know the definition of "the angle between vectors").
Here is a summary of the midterm scores.
Here are solutions to the midterm.
Here is the date, time and location of the final exam:
Thursday, 10 April Loyola Building, Room 170 9:00am  12:00pm
Note that your last lecture will be on either Monday, 7 April or Tuesday, 8 April depending on which lecture section you attend.
The final exam will cover the material on problem sets 16 and 711. There will be a slightly greater emphasis on problem sets 711: roughly 65% of the exam will test material from problem sets 711, and 35% will test material from the earlier problem sets.
You will be allowed to bring into the final exam a double sided 8.5x11 sheet of paper containing whatever notes, formulas, etc. you wish (i.e. you are allowed to write notes on both sides of this sheet). You will also be allowed to use a nonprogrammable calculator (i.e. graphing calculators, cellphone calculators and so on are not allowed). You are responsible for knowing definitions (e.g. if I ask you to compute the angle between two vectors, then you need to know the definition of "the angle between vectors").
Here is a summary of the final exam scores.
Completing the following problem sets will help prepare you for the quizzes.
