What this course is about:
This is a course on vector calculus.
We explore higher-dimensional geometry and adapt the methods of one-variable
calculus to solve problems in space. The material is a beautiful mix of
geometry, algebra, and calculus. The techniques and skills
we will learn can be applied
to dynamics, electricity and magnetism, and a host of other physical settings,
and indeed all across the physical, biological, and social sciences and
What I expect:
Beyond the lectures, here is what I expect from students in this course:
The good news: I (and your TA) want you to succeed, and we will work hard with
you to get there.
- I expect you to carry out the assigned reading on time: the lectures will
assume that you have done the reading, and you will have a hard time
benefiting properly from the lectures if you are unprepared.
- I expect you to
do the homework well and on time: you will have a hard time mastering the
ideas and skills of the course if you don't build up your mental muscles with
vigorous regular exercise.
- I expect you to participate energetically and with
focus in the section meetings: they provide a check on your progress, personal
attention, and interaction with your fellow students that will help cement
your understanding and address any difficulties you are having.
- I expect you
to master all the material by the end of the semester and prove that mastery
to me on the exams.
