Course Content: Math 2401 is an introduction to multivariable calculus. Topics covered include: Linear approximation and Taylor's theorems, Lagrange multiples and constrained optimization, multiple integration and vector analysis including the theorems of Green, Gauss and Stokes. A prerequisite for the course is Math 1502.

A syllabus for the course is available the first day, and then here.

Textbook: Thomas' Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 12th edition by Addison-Wesley (Pearson).

Attendance: Attendance is required for all lectures. The student who misses a class meeting is responsible for any assignments and/or announcements made. Office hours will not be utilized to re-teach material presented in class. There will be no opportunities for make-up tests after the fact. In the event of an absence due to travel representing Georgia Tech, such as an intercollegiate sports competition, you must notify the professor at least two weeks in advance to arrange an early test or other alternative. Otherwise, such absences will be treated as personal.

Homework: This course will have daily homework assignments which should be done before the next class. We will be utilizing MyMathLab by Pearson for the assigned homework. See the pdf version of the syllabus for more information about MyMathLab.

Quizzes: There will be weekly quizzes through out the semester. Quiz solutions are available in the Resources Section of the course T-Square page.

Exams: This course will have four mid-term exams, and a comprehensive final exam. Dates of exams are: Mid-term exams will be held in your recitation meeting room. The Final Exam will be held in the Lecture Hall. Exam solutions are available in the Resources Section of the course T-Square page.

Grade Computation Computation of your course grade is explained in detail on the syllabus. The usual ten-point scale will be used (A: 90-100, B: 80-89, C: 70-79, D: 60-69, F: 0-59), however, if necessary, adjustments will be made to arrive at a standard grade distribution for the course. On an individual basis, significant improvement over the semester will be taken into account. One mid-term exam grade will be dropped, and this is the only mechanism for coping with personal events such as illness and family emergencies.

Calculators: No restrictions will be placed on the use of calculators that do elementary mathematics on the tests. Calculators that can do calculus symbolically shall not be brought to tests. No credit will be given on tests for a correct answer without the intermediate steps. Notes or ``cheat sheets'' will not be allowed on exams or quizzes.

Learning Disabilities: It is the right of any student with a certified learning disability to request necessary accommodation. Such requests must be made well in advance of the time that the accommodation is required and a letter of documentation from the ADAPTS office must be presented at the time of any request.

Academic Honesty: It is expected that all students are aware of their individual responsibilities under the Georgia Tech Academic Honor Code, which will be strictly adhered to in this class.

Additional Resources: In addition to the textbook, lectures, and office hours there are other resources available that might be of use for you during the course. The following links might also be of use:
