This course is designed to round out the typical Calc I-III
courses completing all topics brushed upon in these courses
and providing a mastery of the techniques of calculus.
It will include introductory ordinary differential equations,
centers of mass and moments of inertia with applications to probability,
advanced integration techniques, series in several variables,
plane curves and their curvature, Triple Integrals and Jacobians,
Parametric surfaces, Divergence and Stokes Theorem, and an introduction
partial differential equations. Applications will be stressed throughout.
Grading: 60% of the class grade will be based on projects
(worth 5 pts each for the best 12)
and 40% on the 4 exams including the final (10% for each).
15 Projects: A large part of this course will be projects
which will be done in groups in class. Each group will submit
one copy of each project signed by every member of the group.
The teams will be switched around as the course progresses.
The projects will be due at the end of class. Students who miss
class will get a 0 on the project but the
bottom three grades on projects will be dropped.
3 Exams and Final: There will be three in class exams
before spring break which will test
material similar to the homeworks and projects.
The final exam will only cover work from after the Spring break.
Calculators will be permitted on all exams.

Homework: Read 14.1
This should be review of material you've learned in Vector Calculus.
(a) If V= (-y, x), plot V at (0,0), (0,1), (1,1), (1,0), (-1, 0), (0,-1)
(-1,1) (-1,-1) and (1, -1) then find div(V) and curl(V).
