Course Information

Course Description

We will follow Multivariable Calculus, 8th Edition by James Stewart. Topics include differential and integral calculus of functions of two or three variables: vectors and curves in space, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, line integrals, vector calculus. In the textbook, this material corresponds to most of Chapters 12-16, plus a brief review of Chapter 10. You can also use an older version of the textbook, which may be substantially cheaper.

You can also get an ebook directly from Cengage using the class key wustl 8234 6337. If you've already purchased Cengage unlimited (e.g. for a chemistry course), then this is included.
