This course will revisit the fundamental ideas of calculus of several variables, at greater depth, and will make connections with other mathematical areas as well as with problems in physics and engineering. The emphasis will be on double and triple integrals, line and surface integrals and their connections. The course will end with Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, and Gauss' Theorem.
We will cover most of chapters 5 through 8. Problems will be assigned in class with periodic problem sets to be handed in. The problems chosen will generally not be the simple calculations you were asked to do in MTH 243. There will also be some problems to be solved using Maple.
The text has an on-line supplement that you can access via the following link. There will be some readings assigned from the "Internet Supplement."
