Textbooks
Please choose one of the following options.
Any edition of any of the calculus texts by James Stewart, so long as it contains the multivariate calculus and sequences/series chapters.
For example, James Stewart, Calculus: Early transcendentals, or James Stewart, Multivariate calculus: Early transcendentals will do.
An alternative is David Massey, Worldwide multivariable calculus, although this book does not cover sequences and series,
which is a small but important part of our course. This can be remedied by using the textbook Worldwide integral calculus by the same author,
or relying on any of the online resources suggested below.
Online resources
Paul's online math notes
Calculus textbooks by David Guichard
Calculus textbook by Gilbert Strang
Calculus textbooks by Jerrold Marsden and Alan Weinstein
Vector calculus textbook by Michael Corral

Midterm exam
The midterm exam is scheduled on Thursday February 26, during the regular class time.
It is a closed book, closed note exam. No calculators will be allowed or needed.
The duration of the exam is 1 hour.
The questions will be similar to the problems from Webwork assignments 13, and to these practice problems.
The following is a list of skills and knowledge you are expected to master.
(It is basically everything we will have studied by the time, but an explicit list might help you direct your study better.)
Sequences and series:
 The limits of $r^n$, $\sqrt[n]{n}$, $\sqrt[n]{n!}$, $\frac{r^n}{n!}$, $\frac{n^n}{n!}$, (where $r$ is a fixed real number)
 Basic techniques for computing limits
 Application of the monotone convergence theorem
 The nth term test, Leibniz test, estimating the error in alternating series
 Comparison test, limit comparison test, ratio test, root test, integral test, ptest
 Understanding the proof of integral test
Power/Taylor/Maclaurin series:
 Maclaurin series of $\frac1{1x}$, $\frac1{(1x)^2}$, $\log(1+x)$, $\arctan x$, $e^x$, $\sin x$, $\cos x$
 Integrating and differentiating power series
 Finding the radius of convergence of a power series by using the ratio test
 Computing the Taylor series of a function by repeated differentiation
 Estimating the remainder term for Taylor polynomials
Dot and cross products:
 Length of a vector, angle between 2 vectors
 Projection of one vector onto another
 Area of a parallelogram, volume of a parallelepiped
Space and plane curves:
 Velocity, acceleration, length, unit tangent, arclength parameterization
 Unit normal, curvature, osculating circle, centre of curvature
 Osculating plane, binormal vector (for space curves)
Final exam
The final exam is scheduled on Friday April 17, starting at 9am,
in the Currie Gym.
It is a closed book, closed note exam. No calculators will be allowed or needed.
The exam has 5 questions, with 23 questions on the midterm topics, and 23 questions on the rest.
You are responsible for what is covered in class, in the reading assignments, and in the relevant sections of the textbook (see below).
It goes without saying that you are also expected to be familiar with the mathematics that you would normally learn before this course.
In grading each of the problems, the following rules will be respected (Sorry for the negative tone; I assure you my intention is positive).
 Only a complete and correct solution with clear explanations will receive a full mark.
 Careless errors and other simple mistakes will result in at least 20% deduction from your mark.
 The following errors will be considered as serious, and will result in at least 50% deduction from your mark.
 Incorrect application of the chain rule, the product rule, or the quotient rule for differentiation
 Incorrect application of the nth term test
The exam is intended to test
how you recognize the relevant techniques for the particular problem at hand,
whether you can apply the learned techniques to solve concrete problems,
and whether you can effectively communicate your solution.
In what follows, we list some practice problems and other study material, that might be helpful in directing your preparation.
Midterm topics (sequences, series, Taylor series, space/plane curves):
Minimization/maximization problems, and multiple integrals:
 Solutions to the problems from Written assignment 2
 Webwork assignments 4–5
 From Stewart's book:
 §14.7: 30, 31, 33, 34, 40–44, 46, 53
 §14.8: 3, 4, 11, 12, 20, 21, 27, 28
 §15.2: 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 19, 20, 27, 28
 §15.3: 5, 6, 15, 16, 20, 21, 49–54
 §15.4: 7–14, 24–27, 29–32
 Note: You may not have time to solve every single problem from this list, so try solving first a couple of problems from each group of similar problems.
For reference, the relevant sections of the textbook (Stewart) are:
 §11.1–§11.10, §12.1–§12.4, §13.1–§13.4, §14.1–§14.8, §15.2–§15.4
 Note: We did not cover §12.5 in class, but equations of lines and planes occur occasionally in other sections,
so it may be a good idea to read it (although there isn't really much to it).
 Note: Kepler's laws from §13.4 are not covered, and will not be tested in the exam.
 Note: Linear approximations and differentials from §14.4 will not be tested in the exam.
 Note: Some knowledge from §15.5–§15.7 might be needed in Webwork assignment 5, but these sections will not be tested in the exam.
For further reference, the following are some notable deviations from the textbook.
 We have covered the FrenetSerret equations and the torsion formula. While the former will not be in the exam, the latter is testable.
 We have learned how to rigorously establish the existence of maximizers/minimizers by the Weierstrass theorem.
In maximization/minimization problems, you will be expected to give full justifications as to why your answer indeed provides the maximum/minimum of the function under consideration.
