In this class we use the book
J. Hass, M. Weir, G. Thomas University Calculus, alternate edition
We cover the material from Chapters 14, and 15 from the book.
The book is really unavoidable, and cannot be replaced with another calculus textbook!
To learn basic concepts, techniques and applications pertaining to
multiple integrals and integration in vector fields.
A grade of C or higher in Math 243 or consent.
The course contains a combination of concepts, ideas and techniques. To understand the material means
to be able to apply it in solving problems.
At the end of the day, your grade will reflect your ability to solve specific calculus problems. More specifically, the following
rules are to be taken.
Final exam will take place on ??? and will
count for 40% of the final grade. The exam is cumulative (it covers all the material). There will be no make-ups for the final.
Mid-term test, which covers the material of Chapter 14
and counts for 30% of the final grade.
Quizzes will be given approximately bi-weekly, and the average grade for the quizzes counts for 30% of the final grade.

The following are not part of the grading scheme:
However, missing the classes one misses at least the quizzes which are a part of the grade.
The homework will be given every class, and the problems proposed for quizzes are taken

Homework, Class and Quizzes Structure
- Homework is assigned every class. It consists of reading theory and solving problems.
Both assignments are from the book.
- In Class I briefly recall the theory which is assumed to be already read by students;
most difficult concepts are explained in details; most important ideas are emphasized. After that
I explain on the blackboard as many problems in the connection with the material under the consideration
as time allows. The rest of the problems and a new material
to read are assigned as the next homework.
- Quizzes contain four problems; these are problems taken from the homework.
