Homework/Notes page
Make sure you attend the correct discussion class - there is limited space in each classroom and you will only have
your quizzes and homework graded if you take/submit them in the correct section.
Syllabus
The course follows on from Math 2D and includes the following topics: The differential and integral
calculus of vector-valued functions, Line and surface integrals, Divergence and Curl, The Theorems of Green, Gauss
(Divergence), and Stokes.
Course Text
The course text is the UCI custom edition of James Stewart's
Calculus,
7th edition. You are NOT required to buy the book as homework questions will be posted directly on the homework page,
however the text will be followed closely so it will be very useful to have a copy. If you haven't
already got a copy from a previous class you can probably find a previous edition second-hand; it'll really help!

Assessment
The final grade for the course will tentatively be computed as follows: 45% Final, 30% Midterm, 15% Quizzes, 10% Homework
Homework
and Quizzes
will occur each Friday of weeks 1, 2, 4 and 5. Due to the short length of summer session, NO homeworks or quizzes
will be dropped. Solutions to homework questions will be posted in a eee dropbox each week.
The pre-requisite quiz in week 1 will not be graded and is merely for revision purposes. If you don't understand the questions
in the pre-requisite quiz, ask about them in week 1!
There will be one 75-minute midterm during normal class time on
Wednesday 19th August
The final is on
Wednesday 9th September
at the usual class meeting. You will have 2 hours. The exam will be comprehensive.
Add/Drop & Enrollment Questions
Week 1: All adds, drops and P/NP requests are handled online
Week 2: Use the
Course Change Request Form
which must be signed by the instructor. Requests to change P/NP will be
automatically granted. Adds and drops will only be granted in week 2 in
extreme circumstances.
Grading/Class Policies/Expectations
There will be no opportunity for extra credit.
Late homework will not be accepted for credit although we will be happy to discuss its mathematical quality with you.
No calculators in the quizzes and exams - make sure you can do the homework questions without them!
Make sure you have a legible ID card for the exams. If your UCI ID has a smudged picture, bring your driver's license.
Your exams will not be graded without proof of who you are.
No curving will be done, instead you will receive a letter-grade equivalent with your midterm score. The overall letter-grade
scale will be determined at the end of term.
The final exams will be available for you to consult, but not take away, in the Fall quarter. This is an opportunity to
understand where you went wrong, NOT to haggle for extra marks.
Any request to be treated differently to other students, except in the case of a documented emergency,
will be denied. Fairness means that, as much as possible, all students complete the same work at the same time.
Summer Session is very fast-paced. Missing even one lecture can leave you with a very tough job catching up.
If you have planned on being away for any part of the term, be aware that, unless it is on academic or UCI-sporting business,
you will not be excused from any assessments or be granted make-ups. It is your responsibility not to enroll in a class unless
you are in a position to give it your full attention.
College learning means taking responsibility for your own education. You need to be the judge of whether you understand a topic.
If you don't, there are always more questions in the textbook, and you should pro-actively use office hours and discussion classes.
The assigned homework questions are a guide to the required material, not the totality of what may be examined.
You cannot assume that merely completing all of them will guarantee you an A.
Academic Honesty Both the Math department and UCI take a
dim view of dishonest behavior with regards to assessments:
e.g. submitting another's work as your own, copying during exams, bringing notes to exams, etc. Harsh penalties are in
place for students who try and are caught: depending on the seriousness you may be given an F for the assessment, for
the class as a whole, or even suspended from the University. Think before you try anything, for the result of getting
caught is always worse than the grade you'd get by acting honestly.
