Catalog Description: Functions of more than one variable, partial derivatives, multiple integrals and vector
calculus. Graphical, algebraic and numerical methods of solving problems. 3 units.
Prerequisite : Math 31 (with a grade of C- or better).
Textbook: Calculus: Early Transcendentals, by James Stewart, (CENGAGE) 8th. Ed.
It has an E-book version
Course Objectives: To learn 2- and 3- dimensional vector algebra and analytic geometry. To understand and
apply the basic ideas of multivariable calculus: functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration. To
master the concepts and techniques of multivariable calculus and to use these methods in solving applied
problems.
Homework: I will send you the list of homework for all the semester for the 8th edition. If you want to use the
7th or 6th editions, you will find the lists on my old web page: www.math.sjsu.edu/~sobaid/
(The first two quizzes will be 10 points each and the second two quizzes will be 20 points each)

The final exam is comprehensive.
Computer Requirements: You need to have a microphone and a camera on your computer. Minimally you
need to know how to use ZOOM and GRADESCOPE. You also need to be able to scan and save your quizzes
and exams in one pdf file. All exams will be proctored on ZOOM. There will be more information about
exams later.
It is your responsibility to find all the information you missed.
Integrity Policy:
It is a requirement to read the integrity policy.

There may be small changes in the syllabus.
Remark:
No make-up exams or quizzes will be given. In the case of exams reasons to
exceptions must be convincing to me, officially documented, and presented to
me before the missed exam.
Remark. NO CONTACTS OF ANY KIND ARE ALLOWED DURING THE EXAMS AND THE QUIZZES. DO NOT
USE THE WEB PAGES OR INFORMATION FROM ANYONE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTION. DO NOT USE
Last day to drop without documentation: Monday, August 31, 2020. After 8/31/2020 a student may
withdraw from class only for serious and compelling reasons. These emergencies must be acceptable
to the University Drop Office. Anticipation of failing the class or lack of attendance are normally not
accepted reasons for dropping a class.
Remark. You need to work very hard to succeed in this course. Look for the university guidelines on
how many hours you need to study for the course week. This course is packed with material and you
need to do all the required homework without delay. You need to spend about 8 hours a week studying
and solving homework. Do your homework WITHOUT DELAY.
If you are a student with a disability, you need to CONTACT ME BY E-MAIL as soon as possible to discuss
Log on gradescope.com and if it does not say you are listed in the class write to me. Quizzes will come later.
If you do not see that your name on Gradescope, let me know.
There will be no recording of my lectures. I hope to be able to send you the saved white board.
