Logistics: Math 2250-4 meets MTWF 10:45 - 11:35 a.m., in LCB 219. If you are enrolled in this lecture class then you are also enrolled one of the two Thursday sections 2250-5 (LCB 219, 10:45-11:35) or 2250-6 (LCB 219, 11:50-12:40) which will be run by Victor Camacho. On two of these Thursdays (February 17 and March 31) you will take your midterm exams.
I hold office hours MWF 2:30-3:20, in my office LCB 204. If you need to see me outside of these times, we can set up an appointment. (You're free to drop by my office whenever you want, but I'll chase you away if I'm busy.) My office phone number is 801-581-7318 and my email address is korevaar "at" math.utah.edu.

Prerequisites: Grades of at least ``C'' in Math 1210-1220 (or 1250-1260 or 1270-1280, i.e. single-variable calculus). You are also expected to have learned about vectors and parametric curves (Math 2210 or Physics 2210 or 3210). Practically speaking, you are better prepared for this course if you've had multivariable calculus (1260, 1280, 2210, or equivalent), and if your grades in the prerequisite course were above the "C" level.
