Welcome

Welcome to Math 241 HL1! This is an honors section of Math 241 (Calculus III). We will cover roughly the same material as the regular Math 241 sections, but in greater depth, and we will also explore selected additional topics. The course will be fully in person.

As an honors course, this course is more challenging, more labor-intensive, but also intellectually more rewarding, than the standard version of Math 241. It requires a significant commitment of time and effort, and you have to be willing and able to make such a commitment. If you are curious about what goes on behind the scenes and why a particular formula or recipe works, if you are not intimidated by occasional excursions into n-dimensional space and more abstract topics, and if you want to get challenged beyond the routine and experience the satisfaction you get from solving such challenges, this course is for you. Be sure to read the separate page, Math 241 Honors FAQ, which has more information about the "honors" character of this course and should help you decide whether this course is right for you.

I look forward to working with you in the coming semester, and I will do my best to make this course an interesting, enjoyable, and intellectually stimulating, learning experience. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, feel free to reach out to me (email ajh@illinois.edu, put "Math 241" in the subject line).

Hope you enjoy the class and have a wonderful semester!
