We use the textbook: Stewart, Multivariable Calculus and Taylor Notes
By default, the sections in the syllabus below relate to the Stewart's book
 Analytic Geometry
 Threedimensional Cartesian coordinates and vectors (12.12)
 Polar coordinates (10.3)
 Dot and cross product (12.34)
 Lines and planes (12.5)
 Quadric surfaces (12.6)
 Differential Geometry
 Derivatives and integrals of vector functions (10.2, 13.2)
 Curvature (13.3)
 Motion in the space: velocity and acceleration (13.4)
 Multivariable Differential Calculus
 Partial derivatives of first and higher orders (14.3)
 Tangent planes and linear approximation (14.4)
 Local maxima and minima of functions of two variables (14.7)
 Multivariable Integral Calculus
 Definition of double integrals (15.1, 15.3)
 Double and iterated integrals (15.2)
 Double integrals in polar coordinates (15.4)
 Applications of double integrals (15.5)
 Taylor Polynomials and Taylor Series (Taylor Notes)
 Linear and quadratic approximation (sections 12)
 Taylor approximation in the general case (section 3)
 Taylor series (sections 45)
Your grade is determined by how you do relative to the class as a whole.
Grades will be based on the following:
 Quiz  10 %
 Homework  10 %
 Midterm 1  20 %
 Midterm 2  20 %
 Final Exam  40 %
Homework will be assigned
weekly and be collected in Quiz Section on Thursday every week
(except for week 1, 4 and 8).
We have a grader to grade your homework, but the amount of homework that
can be graded is limited. No late homework will be accepted.

Quizzes will be given on Tuesday in week 2, 6, and 10.
If you have sufficient reasons, you can take a makeup quiz during my office hours. This will be the same quiz, but with slightly altered problems.
Thursday Quiz Sections are devoted to questions and answers; you are also given a set of Challenge Problems taken from old exams, this is a practice for midterms and the final exam. They are totally nonmandatory; if you solve some of them and submit them at the end of Thursday quiz section,
I will grade them. It will not affect your grade in any way whether you solve or not solve them.

Midterm 1

Midterm 2

Rules for taking exams
 Graphing calculators are not allowed on quizzes and
exams in Math 126. A graphing calculator is any device with
a multiline display that has the ability to graph mathematical
functions. Examples are the TI85 or the HP48G.
 You will need a scientific calculator for Math 126. It must
have trigonometric functions, like Sin and Cos, as well as
logarithms and exponentials (ln and exp).
 For Midterm and Final exams, you are allowed to bring
one page of handwritten notes of standard size.
 You must bring your Photo ID to all exams.
 There are no makeup exams. If you have a compelling and
welldocumented reason for missing the final exam, speak to Math Advising
Office (PDL C36) about it. See
Rules
 If you have a regrade request, please submit a written explanation with your midterm to me or Professor Zhang.
It is a good idea to conduct a midquarter evaluation of your teaching. This helps to get
a constructive feedback and improve your quality of teaching. Here are the two Anonymous Surveys used this quarter.
