I'm in MC 103D. My office hours are Tue 11am-noon and Thu 2-3pm.
(All email addresses are at uwo.ca.)
The course outline can be found here,
and the Academic Calendar page
The required text, available at the bookstore, is
J. Stewart, Multivariable Calculus, 7th ed., Brooks/Cole
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.
The TAs for this course are
They will mainly grade the quizzes.
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.

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

All marks have been uploaded to WebCT.
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.
