Course Content
. Math 21-259 is the most advanced of the three basic calculus courses.
We shall cover such topics as vectors, vector-valued functions, multiple integrals, line inte-
grals and surface integrals, as well as various fundamental calculus theorems. The course
covers chapters 12 through 16 of the textbook (see attached schedule). Due to the amount
of material necessary to cover, this course proceeds at a various fast pace. Please don’t be
afraid to stop me and ask questions.
Homework
. Homework is essential to understanding the material covered in this course.
There will be both online homework and written homework each week. The online home-
work system is a *FREE* program that I have used before with much success.
1.
WebWork
: This will be our online homework system. There will typically be two
or three assignments due each week.
The up-to-date list of due dates will be on
blackboard in the announcements section. These are intended to be done on the day
the material is covered in class, in order to reinforce the material. Below I will itemize
the important things to know about webwork:
•

works. This assignment should take 5 minutes and it counts for a grade.
