- Chapter 17: Vector fields, line and surface integrals.

- There will be 2 evening midterm exams, 3 half-hour in-class quizzes and a 3-hour final exam. first midterm exam will be February 17, 7-8:30pm and the second will be March 31, 7-8:30pm.

- Homework assignments and solutions and review sheets will be available from this page. (Note: The homework assignments and review sheets have not yet been posted. Please check back at the beginning of the semester.) Some of this will be in pdf format, for which you will need the free Acrobat Reader.
- Here is a short list of trigonometric identities.
- Here is a tool for integrating.
- Here is some graphing software you may
find useful. Just click
on the link to download a compressed copy. They are freeware.
- For those with Macs, the graphing calculator (included on older models) is now available for downoading. It's good for graphing functions of two variables (surfaces in (x,y,z)-space).
- A PC version (I haven't tried it) can be found here.
- For graphing functions of one-variable (curves in the (x,y)-plane), click here (Mac only).
- For graphing functions of two variables (surfaces in (x,y,z)-space) click here for the Mac version, or here for the Windows version.

*** **Note about final homework: **The official due date for these problems is the last class, on Friday April 22. However, recognizing that some people are leaving early, I will accept this assignment at the review session to be held on Monday May 2. **There will be no further extensions for this assignment!**
