**Insructor: Dr. Peter Wolfe **

Office Hours: 11:00-11:59 a.m. M-F (or by appointment) .

** Class meets: ** MTuWF 1:00-1:50 p.m in ARM 0105.

** Goals of the Course: ** The goal of MATH 241 is to learn multivariable calculus. The culmination of the course is chapter 15 which deals with the integral theorems which are essential for the derivation of the fundamental equations of classical physics (the heat equation, Maxwell's equations, the equations of elasticity and fluid dynamics). We therefore will try to move fairly quickly through chapters 11, 12 and 13 in order to spend more time on the more difficult chapters 14 (multiple integration) and 15.

** Exams and Quizzes : ** There will be four hour exams; on
September 23, October 18, November 14 and December 9
and a Final Exam
on December 15. In addition, there will be 11 ten minute quizzes. (The
dates are noted on the syllabus.) Make-ups for
hour exams will be given __ only __ upon presentation of an
acceptable excuse. No make-ups for quizzes will be given.

** Computer Work: ** We will be using the software system **
MATLAB **. There will be five MATLAB assignments to be handed in.
It is permissible to work in teams on
these. (No more than four to a team please.)

** Homework: ** There is a homework assignment almost every day as
given in the syllabus. The first 10 minutes or so of each class is set aside
for the discussion of homework. This homework will not be collected. Students
are responsible for __ all __ homework problems.

** Grading: ** The three lowest quiz grades will be dropped and the
rest will count as one hour exam. The final will count as two hour
exams. The MATLAB assignments will count as .5 hour
exam. Therefore the final grade will be based on 750 points. Grading
is on the scale 90-100 = A, 80-89=B, 70-79 = C, 60-69 = D, < 60 =
F. However, grades may be adjusted upwards on the basis of (a)
improvement over the semester, or (b) an exceptionally good final
examination.

** Tutoring: ** The Department of Mathematics offers a free walk-in
tutoring service. Here is the
