About the course: MTH 243 is a third calculus course, with the focus on functions of two, three, and more variables and the extensions of the ideas of elementary calculus to higher dimensions.
Topics include functions of two variables, vectors, partial derivatives, local and global extrema, integration of functions of several variables, parametrization and vector fields, and line integrals. (Chapters 12 - 18 of the book.)
Clicking here Course Schedule you will get a detailed syllabus of the course. The syllabus is always subject to change according to the needs of the class.
Prerequisites: MTH 142 or equivalent.
Policies: You are expected to abide by the University's civility policy:
"The University of Rhode Island is committed to developing and actively protecting a class environment in which respect must be shown to everyone in order to facilitate the expression, testing, understanding, and creation of a variety of ideas and opinions. Rude, sarcastic, obscene or disrespectful speech and disruptive behavior have a negative impact on everyone's learning and are considered unacceptable. The course instructor will have disruptive persons removed from the class."
Cell phones, IPods, beepers and any electronic device must be turned off in class.
You are required to do your own work unless specifically told otherwise by your instructor. In support of honest students, those discovered cheating on assignments or exams will receive a grade of zero on the assignment or exam. Use of unauthorized aids such as cheat sheets or information stored in calculator memories, will be considered cheating. The Mathematics Department and the University strongly promote academic integrity.
Your grade will be determined by your scores on
Exam I : 100pts Exam II : 100pts Final   : 150pts (cumulative) Quizzes and Homeworks and Maple Projects : 150pts Total     : 500pts
Homework: Homework will be assigned weekly but not collected or graded. However the weekly quiz may be based on homework assignments. If you do your weekly homework assignments you will have no problem with the exams.
Quizzes: There will be weekly or biweekly quizzes. The quiz will be given on Thursday. I will drop the lowest quiz at the end of the term.
There will be no make up quizzes or exams.
Maple Projects: We will continue our work with Maple in this course. This powerful software is particularly useful in multivariable calculus to visualize graphs and surfaces in three dimensions.

Exam I : February 21 (Thursday)
Exam II : April 3 (Thursday)
