Text
Calculus, Early Transcendentals, Eighth Edition
by J. Stewart
Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of Math 23 - Calculus, students will have learned
to/about:
•
Use vector algebra, including the dot product and cross product, to describe
and work with geometric objects such as lines, planes, and surfaces;
•
Use the concept of the derivative and the integral of a vector-valued function
and be able to use these objects to determine length, tangents, normals,
and curvature, and to apply them in the study of motion;
•
The concepts of limits, continuity, and di
↵
erentiability of functions of sev-
eral variables;
•
The concepts of partial derivatives, the gradient, and directional derivatives
and developed the ability able to compute them;
•
Understand and apply methods of optimization of functions of several vari-
ables;
•
Compute multiple integrals and apply them to finding mass, center of mass,
and other physical quantities;
•
Understand vector fields, be able to compute normal vectors and tangent
planes to surfaces, line integrals, surface integrals, flux integrals, the curl,
the divergence, and be able to apply these to mathematical and physical
problems;
•
Understand and be able to apply the fundamental theorem of line integrals,
Green's theorem, Stokes' theorem, and the divergence theorem.

Coursesite
There will be two Coursesite sites for this course, and you will automatically be
enrolled in both. One site will have all information that is common to all sections
of the course.
The second site is for each individual sections.
(The sections for
Prof. Coll will be combined.)
Classroom comportment et al
•
Students may attend the o
ffi
ce hours of any MATH 23 instructor or TA.
Additional help is available in the Mathematics Study/Help Center (CU
300), by appointment at the Writing and Math Center in Drown Hall, and
from the peer tutoring services.
•
Instructors and TAs will respond to e-mail, but it may take a few days. To
receive a response, the course (Math 23) and section number must be in
the subject line.
•
Students are expected to participate in lecture and recitation, so all elec-
tronic devices, books, papers, and other materials not related to MATH
23 must be packed away.
Basic manners aside, common experience and
some research have shown that a person working on unrelated material
can distract other students and the instructor (and the person working on
unrelated material, of course).
•
The assigned sections (see Syllabus) should be read at least twice, once
before and once after the corresponding lecture. Lectures will at times be
a little ahead of or behind this schedule. Sections are not covered in the
text's order, so it's important to pay close attention to the schedule.

Exams
There will be two common exams and a final exam.
•
First common exam - Thursday, February 24 - Locations will be posted on
the main Coursesite when available*
•
Second common exam - Thursday, April 14 - Locations will be posted on
the main Coursesite when available*
•
Final exam - date, time, and location to be set by the Registrar and will
be posted on the main Coursesite when available*
* Locations and times will also be available on the Registrar's homepage.
If you are aware of a conflict with an exam, please inform your instructor as soon as
possible. Make-up exams will require a note from a doctor or a dean, and make-up
finals are given according to university policy.
Homework
Graded weekly assignments
There will be regular graded HW assignments, assigned on a weekly basis and
posted on the main Coursesite. These will be due via the section specific Coursesite
on Tuesday of the following week at 11 pm Eastern Standard Time. Answer Keys
will be published the next day (Wednesday) on the main Coursesite. Late HW will
not be accepted. Each HW will consist of approximate 18-20 problems - about six
problems per covered book section - and you will be required to turn in the solutions
to all of the assigned problems. However, only five problems will be graded - but
you will not know in advance which ones. The graded problems will be graded on
a 0, 1, 2 scale. So, each HW assignment is out of 10 points.
There will be 15 HWs in total HW 0 - Hw 14. HW 0 is not graded but its submission
is required in short order to insure that all are comfortable with the submission
protocols. HW 14 will also not be graded. This leaves 13 graded HWs.
In part to compensate for illness, bad luck, etc., the lowest three homework scores
of HW1 - HW 13 will be dropped. Students may discuss the homework with other
students, but must write their solutions individually.
Copying of hand-written,
typed, or on-line solutions is not allowed under any circumstances and will be re-
ported as plagiarism.
(More information about academic integrity can be found
at
www.lehigh.edu/~indost/conduct/aiforstudents.shtml
.) Students are ad-
vised not to upload solutions (for either tests or homeworks) to any internet site.
Quizzes
There will be weekly quizzes in recitation, except for the first, last, and
exam weeks. The lowest two quizzes will be dropped.
