I will be in the Canvas chat room Thursday night around 8:30.
The final exam is this Friday (12/20) at 10:30. A practice exam can be found here - pracfinal.pdf: solutions can be found here - pracfinalsols.pdf Don't look at the solutions until after you have tried the practice exam.
You can now play the spot-it partial derivatives game online:
During Finals week I will have expanded office hours: M-Th 9-11; if mornings don't work for you send me an email, and I can find time in the afternoon to meet. In addition, I will have a practice exam up sometime next week, and there will be an online chat Thursday night.
Below is a link to a short survey concerning your Math Laboratory section and lab time scheduling. We need your input in order to improve your experience. You can finish the survey within two minutes, and consists of 14 yes/no/multi-choice-style questions and a few optional free-response questions. It's anonymous and confidential.

Homework 13 is due Friday 12/6 at the beginning of class.
Homework 12 is due Friday 11/22 at the beginning of class.
section 11.1 - 1,4,5,,8,12,14,30,41,43
section 11.2 - 5,6,7,20,28,29,34,35
(underlines denote graded problems)
The second exam is this Friday (11/15). A practice exam can be found here - prac2.pdf: solutions can be found here - prac2sols.pdf This practice exam is probably a bit longer than the actual exam. Don't look at the solutions until after you have tried the practice exam.
I will be in the chat room on the course Canvas page Wednesday(10/2) and Thursday(10/3) around 8:30 PM to answer questions regarding the exam, the lab, homework or anything else related to the course.
The first exam is this Friday (10/4). A practice exam can be found here - prac1.pdf: solutions can be found here - prac1sols.pdf (There is an error in the solution to 4(a) - Your answer should be y=-sqrt(x^2 +9) - problem 5(b) should also have -(1/4)cos(4x)). Don't look at the solutions until after you have tried the practice exam.
Homework 6 is due Friday 10/4 at the beginning of class.
section 8.6 - 4,5,11,23 (you can use a result from lecture for problem 11)
Homework 1 is due Friday 8/30 at the beginning of class.
section 6.1 - 5,6
section 6.2 - 2,3,5,6,14,15,25,32,33,34
section 6.3 - 3,4,9,10,13,14,29,30

1320 students are required to earn a "C" or better in 1310 to enroll, or they can alternatively be entered by earning a "C" or better in Math 1210 and by being concurrently enrolled in the MATH 1320 "boot camp" that covers the material in 1310 that is missing from the traditional 1210 sequence. Practically speaking, you are better prepared for this course if you have a solid understanding of differentiation, integration, trigonometry, and if your grades in the prerequisite courses were above the 'C' level.
1320 Students will understand average behavior of a function, differential equations solutions through integration, exponential growth/decay, sequences and series and convergence tests, series approximation, power series, Taylor and Maclaurin series, Taylor's theorem, the three dimensional coordinate system, vectors, dot product, cross product, equations of planes and surfaces, vector functions and space curves, derivatives and integrals of vector functions, arc length, curvature, velocity and acceleration of parametrized curves, multivariate functions, multivariate limits, partial derivatives, tangent planes and linear approximations, multidimensional chain rule, directional derivative, gradient vector, minimum/maximum and optimization of multivariate functions, Lagrange multipliers.
This material is covered by chapters 6-11 in the text. A tentative lecture schedule is posted here. This is subject to change.
Grading will be posted on the U of U Canvas website and based on performance on homeworks, computer assignments, midterm exams, and one final exam.
The weighting for each is as follows:
Labs (discussion and attendence)
There will be two midterm exams and one final exam for this class. All exam scores will be counted (I will not drop a lowest score). The final exam is comprehensive and covers the entire course. Make-up exams will only be given for university excused absences and must be arranged in advance. The exam dates are given below. Plan accordingly. You will be required to show your student ID during the test.
Friday October 4
Friday November 15
Friday December 20, 10:30 - 12:30
There will be weekly quizzes given on Fridays at the beginning/end of class. These quizzes will cover key concepts and techniques from the lectures and homework assigned that week. I will use the 10 best quiz scores when determining grades. (If for some reason we have less than 11 quizzes, I will drop the lowest one.) There will be no make up quizzes.
Homework will be assigned regularly to reinforce concepts from the lectures. I will drop the lowest score on the homeworks when calculating grades. Beyond their contributions to your course grades, the real value in carefully working the homework problems and in doing the projects is that mathematics (like anything) must be practiced and experienced to really be understood. Collaboration on homeworks is encouraged, but what you turn in must be your own work. Homework is due at the beginning of class on the due date. No late homework will be accepted. A good rule to adhere to is: "If your homework is important enough that you would be upset if it was not accepted, then it is important enough to turn in on time."
Every Thursday the teaching assistant (TA) will direct a lab section. In Lab, the TA will hand out problem worksheets and will facilitate student-led group work, as well as answer questions about the weekly material/book homework. The worksheets will provide guided practice with problems that highlight the use of calculus in physical and engineering applications. Credit will be given for both lab attendance and completed worksheets. I will drop the lowest score on the labs when calculating grades. Students should expect that worksheets will take additional time outside of lab to finish completely. The TA will be available for additional office hours the the College of Engineering tutoring lab in WEB 1622. Attendence for the lab section will be taken and is a part of the grade. However, students can attend either lab section.
The math department offers free drop-in tutoring for math department classes at the 1000 and 2000 level, as well as the following 3000 level classes: 3070-3080, 3150, 3160. The tutoring center is located in room 155 of the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Center (adjacent to the LCB and JWB).
Students with Disabilities
The American with Disabilities Act requires that reasonable accommodations
be provided for students with physical, sensory, cognitive, systemic, learning, and psychiatric disabilities. Any student with a certified disability who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact University Disability Services (UDS) and me at the beginning of the semester to discuss any such accommodations for the course.
