Calculus for Functions of Several Variables Fall 2011 MTH243

The following calendar gives a timetable for the course. Your class may be slightly behind or ahead at any given time. Below the calendar is a list of sections in the textbook "Calculus Multivariable 4th Ed", by William G. McCallum, Deborah Hughes-Hallett, Andrew M. Gleason, David O. Lomen, David Lovelock. Wiley, ISBN-10: 0471484806; ISBN-13: 978-0471484806 Some of these may be done in class, others as homework. You should attempt them all. (Note: In the problem lists, a notation like 3-9 means that all the problems 3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are assigned.)
