Course description: This is a mathematically rigorous course which will emphasize concepts and proofs. Topics covered will include topology of , derivatives, the inverse function theorem, the Riemann integral, the change of variables theorem for multiple integrals, manifolds and differential forms in , Stokes's theorem and applications.
Prerequisites: The course will heavily rely on knowledge you have from Linear Algebra (MAT 211 or MAT 310), Multivariable Calculus (MAT 203) and Analysis in 1 dimension (MAT 320). Formal prerequisite is a grade of C or better in MAT 203 and 211 or 310 and B or higher in MAT 320.
Homework: The homework is an important part of the course and will be assigned most every week, with due dates generally on Tuesday in class. Do the homework! It is fundamental for understanding the course material. To do well in class you are strongly encouraged to read the sections to be covered before class: plan to work on reading and homework for 6-8 hours a week and start preparing for tests well in advance.
Exams: There will be 2 Midterm Exams and one Final Exam.
Make sure that you can attend the exams at the scheduled times; make-ups will not be given. Resolve any conficts now. If one midterm exam is missed because of a serious (documented) illness or emergency, the semester grade will be determined based on the balance of the work in the course.
Grading policy: Each Midterm Exam will count 20% of your grade, the Final will count 40% and Homework will count 20%.
