# Intermediate Calculus I 2302A (Fall 2011)

MWF 1:30-2:30pm, HSB 35

## Instructor

Matthias Franz (email: mfranz)

I'm in MC 103D. My office hours are Tue 11am-noon and Thu 2-3pm.

(All email addresses are at uwo.ca.)

## Course Outline

The course outline can be found here, and the Academic Calendar page here.

## Textbook

The required text, available at the bookstore, is

J. Stewart, Multivariable Calculus, 7th ed., Brooks/Cole

## Help Centre

The department runs a common help centre for all calculus courses (as well as some other first and second year courses). It is Monday to Friday 2:30-6:30pm in MC 106.

## Teaching Assistants

The TAs for this course are Ali Al-khairy and Fatemeh Bagherzadeh. They will mainly grade the quizzes.

## Recommended Exercises

In the list below we only refer to the odd-numbered questions in the textbook. They have solutions at the back of the book. Try to solve as many of them as possible.

NOTE: The purpose of the solutions is that you can verify your result after solving the exercise (or looking it up if you are stuck). The learning effect of simply reading a solution without trying to solve the question yourself is close to zero.

## Quizzes

There will be one quiz every Friday during class time. The lowest quiz score will be dropped when the final grade is calculated.

Sep 16: Sections 12.1 and 12.2 up to page 819 including the list "Properties of Vectors" (bottom of page 819), but without the length of a vector (bottom of page 818). For Section 12.2, the relevant exercises are 1-19 (again, without the length of a vector).

Sep 23: Rest of Section 12.2, and Section 12.3, plus polar coordinates (beginning of Section 10.3 up to Example 2) and spherical coordinates (beginning of Section 15.9 up to Example 1). (Warning: In class I called "φ" what the book calls "θ" and vice versa.) We are going to review scalar and vector projections at the beginning of the Friday class.

Sep 30: Sections 12.4 and 12.5 up to page 843. For Section 12.5, the relevant exercises are 1-21.

Oct 7: Rest of 12.5, and Section 12.6. Grading: As explained in class, we will add 2 marks for everyone who wrote this quiz.

Oct 14: Sections 13.1 and 13.2

Oct 21: Section 13.3 except normal and binormal vectors, Section 13.4 up to Example 4

Oct 28: no quiz

Nov 18: Section 14.6 Grading: As explained in class, we will add 1 mark for everyone who wrote this quiz.

Nov 25: Section 14.7 up to page 975 (the entire page)

Dec 2: the rest of Section 14.7, and Section 14.8

## WebCT

All marks have been uploaded to WebCT.

Notes: The "Final" column contains the overall final grade. The result of the final exam is in the column "Final Exam".

The quiz marks are out of 6. An "EX" as quiz mark means that you have been excused. If you have not been excused, the mark is 0. The adjustments for the quizzes 4 and 8 mentioned above are included. Also, the lowest quiz mark has been dropped.

Both midterm mark and final exam mark are out of 70. The overall final grade has been computed as if there were 63 marks on the final exam.

## Exams

### Midterm

Tue Nov 1, 6:30-9:30pm, room NS 7
