Added Nov. 29, 2009:
You are welcome to start practicing for the Final by trying out the two Final exams
from three years ago. (Note: please do not peek at the solutions until after you have done it yourself).
The format of this semester's Final Exam will be similar except that it will contain
twenty questions rather than sixteen.
Note: The best guarantee for success is knowing how to do every single type of problem.
While most types show up below, some don't, and they may very well come up in this semester's exams.
For example, finding the absolute maximum and minimum of a multivariable function
in a bounded region (problem 14.7b handout 14.7), or sketching a vectorfield.

Added Nov. 18, 2009 about Exam II: You are allowed to prepare a 5'' by 7'' index card with formulas taken from the section summaries

Note: You are allowed to prepare a 5'' by 7'' index card with formulas taken from the section summaries
in your own handwriting. You can use both sides, but I recommend that you leave room for the stuff for Exam II and
the Final, so it is wise to only use one side. You can also add values of trig functions.

VERY IMPORTANT:

Attendance is strictly mandatory and enforced!

No cellphones!

It is also mandatory to take notes of everything I say in class.
Please buy a SINGLESUBJECT notebook,
and write on the cover: Calc III Classnotes.
Also write your name and Email (in case it gets lost).
Don't use it for any other subjects.

Also prepare a brown envelope and title it: Calc III Homework.
The homework is to be inspected by the Recitation Leader.
It will not be graded carefully, but the Recitation Leader's
weekly quiz will contain homeworkstyle problems, so if you
do all your homework, you should ace the quiz.

Take careful notes during the lectures (and recitations, of course,
but use a different notebook for that), and do all the
homework.

If you have a justified absence, then
in your notebook, in the space where you would have taken classnotes,
date it, explain why you were absent (e.g. tapein doctor's note,
or a signed statement: "I swear on my honor that I felt so bad
that I couldn't make it"), and then in your own handwriting
copy all the workedexamples from the corresponding section(s) of the book.

Every lecture will end with a 10minute informal "quiz", asking you to
do some problems covered in that day's class.
It doesn't count towards the grade, but I use it first, to check attendance
(it is more efficient than calling 90 names), but more
important, to make sure that you know how to do the problems,
and in case that many people didn't get it, I'll try to do a better job
in reviewing it.
After each lecture I will send Email to everyone, with the complete
solutions, and you should
decide whether or not you got it right. If you didn't, you
should make every attempt to come to the
next free tutoring session (Mondays 9:0010:00am, SEC 117,
Thursdays 9:0010:00am, SEC 209).
