## Mathematics 317 (Calculus IV), Fall 2011

**Section 101, MWF 10:00-10:50, LSK 460**

**Instructor: Prof. I. Laba**
- Math Bldg 200, (604) 822 4457, ilaba@math.ubc.ca
- Office hours: Mon 3-4, Wed 11-12, Fri 1-2, in MATH 200
- If you cannot attend regular office
hours due to schedule conflict, please make an appointment in advance. Drop-ins and same-day
requests for appointments cannot usually be accommodated.

**Prerequisites:** One of MATH 200, MATH 226, MATH 353. (MATH 221 is recommended.)

**Textbook:** J. Stewart, *Multivariable calculus*, 6th ed., Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2008
Prentice Hall 2005.

** Course web page: http://www.math.ubc.ca/~ilaba/teaching/math317_F2011**

**Homework assignments will be posted here.**

**Course topics:**
**Vector valued functions of one variable (Chapter 14): **
Parameterized curves, velocity, acceleration, arc length.
Includes curvature, normal and binormal vectors, tangential and normal components of acceleration.
**Vector valued functions of several variables (Chapter 17):**
vector fields, line integrals, conservative fields, fundamental theorem of line integrals,
Green's theorem, gradient, curl, divergence,
parameterized surfaces, suface area, surface integrals,
Stokes' theorem, divergence theorem.

**Your course mark** will be based on homework (10%), two midterms
(20% each), and the final exam (50%).
Grades may be **slightly** scaled at the end of the course.

**Examinations:**
There will be two in-class 50 minute midterms scheduled on **Wednesday, October 5**
and Friday, November 4, and a 2.5 hour final exam in December.
The date of the final examination will be announced by the Registar later
in the term.
Attendance at the final examination is required, so be careful about
making any other committments (such as travel) before this date is confirmed.
All examinations will be strictly closed-book:
no formula sheets, calculators, or other aids will be allowed.

**Homeworks:** There will be 6 homework assigmnents, tentatively due on
September 16, September 30, October 19, October 28, November 16,
and November 25. Each assignment will be due at the **beginning**
of class. If you cannot come to class, you may drop off your homework
in my office (MATH 200) prior to the start of class.
Late assignments will not be accepted. To allow for minor illnesses and other emergencies,
the lowest 2 homework scores will be dropped.

**Academic concession.** Missing a midterm, or handing in a homework
assignment after the deadline, will normally result in a mark of 0.
Exceptions may be granted in two cases: prior consent of the
instructor, or a **documented** medical reason.
Your course mark will then be based on your remaining coursework (normally, homework: 10%,
midterms and final exam: a total of 90%).
There will be no make-up midterms.
