Text: "Calculus: A Complete Course", by Robert A. Adams.
Syllabus: Multiple Integration: double and triple integrals, change
of variables, surface integrals. Vector fields: conservative fields,
line integrals, flux. Vector calculus: grad, div, curl,
Green's theorem, divergence theorem, Stokes' theorem, potentials.
PDE and Fourier series: heat equation, separation of variables (possibly
other topics as time permits).
Assignments: There will be be 5 written assignments.
Due dates will be announced in class and on the course web page.
Late assignments will not be accepted, except in cases of emergency.
Depending on availability of TA and other factors, some problems may
