Syllabus:    Math 120 Syllabus PDF.


Schedule:    Week by week schedule PDF.


Course Description:    In Math 120 we study the vector geometry of 3 dimensions, scalar and vector functions of 1 and 2 variables, partial derivatives, directional derivatives, multiple integrals, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, parameterized curves and surfaces, gradient, divergence, curl, line and surface integrals, and the theorems of Gauss, Green, and Stokes.


Text:    The text is James Stewart's Multivariable Calculus Early Transcendentals, Math 120, seventh edition, Thompson. Note: earlier editions of this text differ in some sections and most exercises.


Evaluation :    Course grades are determined from the combined total of homework scores (10%), two exam scores (25% each), and the final exam score (40%).
