Math 242: Calculus III
Instructor: Joe Erickson (erickson@bucks.edu)
Textbook: Calculus, by Briggs & Cochran
Term: Fall 2014


December 17 - Exam #4 and its key are in Resources.

December 11 - I forgot that we had a canceled class back in October, so, I do plan to have a class on Tuesday, December 16, which is a "make-up day" on the academic calendar. This means we should be able to get up to section 15.7 (on surface integrals) for sure. A light treatment of Stokes's Theorem may also be possible. I've recently put a lot of work into adding more stereoscopic illustrations to the chapter 15 notes, to help clarify concepts and such. Being able to see things in 3D, I think, greatly facilitates understanding certain aspects of vector calculus.

November 25 - A section on the Lagrange Multiplier Method has been added to Chapter 13 of the Notes (section 13.9, specifically), though we are not covering this topic in class this semester.

November 19 - Exam #3 and its key now grace the Resources page of this site.

November 6 - Exam #2 and its key are available in Resources (link below).

October 13 - Exam #2 is now scheduled to happen on October 21. The syllabus has been revised accordingly.

October 2 - Exam #1 and its key are now in the Resources section of the site (link below). Also, tonight's class will need to be cancelled since I have a cold. Next time we'll complete section 13.4, and do section 13.5 and maybe some of 13.6. In the meantime I recommend working ahead on section 13.4. (I think I told Lisa Cotton to write "work on section 13.2" on the whiteboard, but I meant 13.4.)

September 16 - I think I've improved the discussion on lines in section 12.5 of the Notes.

August 28 - Current syllabus is now available below.

August 27 - Announcements pertaining to the Fall 2014 evening section of Math 242 (Calculus 3) will appear here. Note: the current syllabus is not yet available, and the link below leads to last year's syllabus.
