TESTS AND SOLUTIONS TO TESTS FROM CALCULUS 3, spring 2011

**Tutoring schedule**

Tutoring is available in ASB-B 108 (below math dept)

We will be covering pretty much all of chapters 11 through 15. Topics include vectors, curves and surfaces in vector co-ordinates; Functions whose values are vectors; partial derivatives; Double and Triple integrals over surfaces and solids; Vector fields, Green's and Stokes' theorems.

**Quizzes, Tests, and grading**

In this course we will try to do many examples and problems. Example problems will be worked out in every class. You will be expected to work on them during class and do other recommended problems at home, by yourself or with your study group. It is highly recommended that you form a study group and meet with students in your study group atleast once a week.

There will be quizzes each week, given IN CLASS. The quiz problems will be similar to the ones worked out in class. More details on that will be posted soon.The total points out of all the quizzess will count to about 30% of the final grade. The quizzes will count to 200 points towards final grade. A bonus of 10 points will be given if all 10 are submitted. The best 7 quizzes will be counted.

There will be 3 tests and the best 2 will count towards final grade. No make-ups for quizzes or tests.

**Writing only answers in test, will fetch only small
amount of credit. Please always explain your work and present solutions
step by step. This will also help you to get partial credit even if answer
is wrong.**
