Email: phlee "at"
Office: 408 Mathematics
Office Hours: Monday 2 pm to 4 pm, or by appointment

Teaching Assistant: Alvin Peizhe Li
Email: pl2488 "at"
Help Room: 406 Mathematics
Help Room Hours: Wednesday 7 pm to 10 pm, Thursday 7 pm to 10 pm
(For more information about the Help Room, see below.)

Textbook: James Stewart, Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 7th Edition
(More information about the textbook is available here. Please make sure you have access to the corrrect edition when working on the homework problems.)

Course Description: Double and triple integrals. Change of variables. Line and surface integrals. Grad, div, and curl. Vector integral calculus: Green's theorem, divergence theorem, Stokes' theorem. (Chapters 15 and 16 of Stewart.)
Prerequisites: Calculus I, II, III. (Chapters 1 to 14 of Stewart, but 9 and 11 are of little relevance.) Integration techniques are especially important, so brush up on them early on!

Important Dates: For more details, please refer to the summer calendar. This course falls under Session Q.


Homework: There will be ten written problem sets, due at the end of class every Tuesday and Thursday (except on the second and last days of class). You may either turn them in to me in class, or leave them in the homework dropbox (located outside of 408 Mathematics) by 6:15 pm. The majority of the problems will be taken from the textbook, with a few extra problems. Solutions will be posted after the homework is due. No late submission will be accepted, but the lowest homework score will be dropped. Collaboration is encouraged, but you must write up your own solutions independently. You must cite any resources you consult other than the textbook (Google, Wikipedia, Help Room, classmates, etc); failure to do so is considered plagiarism.

Examinations: There will be two midterms (20% each) and one final (40%) held in class. The topics to be covered in each exam will be announced later. If you have a conflict with any of the exam dates, you must contact me at least one week in advance for alternative arrangements. If you are unable to take the exam because of a medical problem, you must go to the health center and get a note from them, and contact me as soon as you can. The use of books, cell phones, calculators, or notes of any sort is not permitted in any of the exams.

CourseWorks: All course materials (homework, solutions, etc.) and grades will be posted on CourseWorks. Important announcements will also be emailed via CourseWorks.

Plagiarism: Any work plagiarized from outside sources or between classmates will receive no credit and potentially result in disciplinary actions.


Help Room: The Help Room is open 9 am to 10 pm Monday to Friday. The full schedule is available here. Feel free to seek help from any other TA's who are on duty, if you cannot make Alvin's hours.

WebAssign: We will not be using WebAssign. If you want to use it for practice, please refer here.

Disability Services: In order to receive disability-related academic accommodations, students must first be registered with the Disability Services (DS). More information on the DS registration process is available online here. Registered students must present an accommodation letter to the instructor before exam or other accommodations can be provided. Students who have, or think they may have, a disability are invited to contact DS for a confidential discussion.

Tutoring Services: Information is available here.
