Check the announcements page frequently.
Prerequisite:   MTH 254: Vector Calculus I
You must be comfortable with partial derivatives and multiple integration in order to do well in the course. If you are rusty, it is highly recommended that you review this material now.
Course Structure:
The approach to vector calculus used in this course emphasizes geometric visualization, not just algebraic manipulation. This approach has been developed as part of a national effort to improve the teaching of vector calculus. Further information can be found on the project website. A partial list of course goals can be found here.
The course will consist of a combination of lectures, group activities, homework and exams. Expect group activities at least once a week; ditto for assigned homework.
Students with Disabilities:
Accommodations are collaborative efforts between students, faculty and Disability Access Services (DAS). Students with accommodations approved through DAS should contact me prior to or during the first week of the term to discuss accommodations. Students who believe they are eligible for accommodations but who have not yet obtained approval through DAS should contact DAS immediately. Further information is available on the DAS website.
