Math 233 is 4-credit course on Multivariable Calculus. The
learning objectives of this course are as follow:
Use vectors to express and solve geometric problems in R2
Master the computational techniques and qualitative understanding of calculus in higher dimension,
such as analyzing local max and min, finding tangent plane approximations, determining constrained
optimizations, and calculating multiple integrals in variouis coordinate systems
Learn the geometric and physical intuition behind vector fields (e.g. conservative fields, fluid flow)
Develop the three master theorems in Vector Analysis (Greens, Stokes andd Gauss) and understand
their mathematical significance and physical interpretations

The homework assigned are meant to give you an
opportunity to practice
reinforce skills and concepts taught in class. They are NOT the only such
problems, and your exams
may contain questions rather different from these.
- You are welcome to work with your fellow students. However,
you must do your own problem set.

the only way to add/drop a course/section is via SPIRE.
In particular, I cannot add/drop a course/section for you.
I do not keep a waiting list, and the Math Dept staffs will not handle
Final exams will not be returned to the students. The Math Dept will keep
them in files and will provide a student with a photocopy upon request.
Except for emergency,

If you arrive late to class, sit in the first seat you can find so as not to disturb others, and do not come up to the front of the room to pick up or hand in papers.
You can use laptops and tablets during class
provided that you do not disturb your fellow classmates and my
lectures (for example: mute the speaker).

Again, please refer to
Requests for make-up exams due to non emergency must be submitted, with proper documentation,
at least two weeks before the regularly scheduled exam is given. Failure to complete this procedure in timely fashion may result in a zeroon the exam.
If you have a conflict with another exam(s), visit the Registrar's Office to determine which course needs to give the makeup exam
In case of a medical emergency, submit a statement from a medical professional that includes a phone number where the professional may be contacted.

The University of Massachusetts Amherst is committed to providing an equal educational opportunity for
all students. A student with a documented physical, psychological, or learning disability on file with Disability
Services (DS) may be eligible for reasonable academic accommodations to help succeed in this course. If you
have a documented disability that requires an accommodation, please notify the instructor within the first
two weeks of the semester so that we may make appropriate arrangements.
Academic Honesty Statement
Since the integrity of the academic enterprise of any institution of higher education requires honesty in scholarship and research, academic honesty is required of all students at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Academic dishonesty is prohibited in all programs of the University. Academic dishonesty includes but is
not limited to: cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, and facilitating dishonesty. Appropriate sanctions may be
imposed on any student who has committed an act of academic dishonesty. Instructors should take reasonable
steps to address academic misconduct. Any person who has reason to believe that a student has committed
academic dishonesty should bring such information to the attention of the appropriate course instructor as
soon as possible. Instances of academic dishonesty not related to a specific course should be brought to the
attention of the appropriate department Head or Chair. Since students are expected to be familiar with this
policy and the commonly accepted standards of academic integrity, ignorance of such standards is not normally
sufficient evidence of lack of intent.
