**Everyone should submit both questions on this quiz.**I screwed up, and the “vectors” topic that we started last week is in fact a major topic. You get four cracks at it, and will be graded on your best two. Everything is being updated to reflect that.

## Course Goals

In this course we will extend our theory of calculus to cover functions of multiple variables. We will understand these functions algebraically and geometrically, and learn how to use the tools of differential and integral calculus to further understand them.

Topics will include: vectors, 3D graphing, planes, partial derivatives, directional derivatives, gradients, the chain rule, optimization and Lagrange multipliers, integration, vector fields, line and surface integrals, and Green’s, Stokes’s, and the Divergence theorem.

The course syllabus is available here.

Graphing calculators will **not** be allowed on tests. Scientific, non-programmable calculators will be allowed. I will have some to share, but not enough for everyone.

## Textbook

The official textbook for Math 2233 is OpenStax Calculus Volume 3 by Gilbert Strang and Edwin Herman. It is available for free online here. You can also buy copies from Amazon; a paperback is a little under $30.

I will be loosely following the textbook, but will often be giving my own take or focusing on topics the textbook doesn’t emphasize. All my course notes will be posted to the course web page.

We will be using a (free!) online homework system called WeBWorK this term. You can access it by going to Blackboard, then to “Course Links”, and clicking the WeBWorK link. This will automatically create an account for you and log you in. You may continue to log in through Blackboard, or if you wish you may create a password within WeBWorK to log in directly.
