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 engineering.
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.
