Welcome to F2012: MAC2313 5581 Analyt.Geom.&.Calc.3 MTWF5 MAT115
This is a 1-semester course that covers some absolutely lovely mathematics.
The overall direction is that of calculus in several dimensions, of
visualization of multi-dimensional objects, and of some elementary vector
physics. We will cover some applications to Newtonian mechanics, primarily
orbits of satellites, escape velocity and the like.

"Maximize x, y and z."
If I am not in the office then it is best to EMAIL me, as I don't
remotely pick-up phone messages. If urgent, then telephone to the
secretaries at 392-0281.x221 and they can contact me at home.

My OHs will V*a*R*y during the semester, so please check the webpage.
Currently, OHs are: Wed. and Fri., 6th period [12:50-13:40].

Text: "Concepts in Calculus, III : Multivariable Calculus" by Sergei Shabanov,
University Press of Florida. ISBN: 978-1-61610-162-6
EXAMS: In addition to pop quizzes, there will be several exams; see our
course webpage. All of my classes have CP (class participation) grade,
based on Posting to our Archive, Speaking in class, and in OHs/appt.,
helping other students during OHs., etc. There is NO final exam; rather,
an optional /typed/ Final Project, due Friday, 07Dec2012, (LDClass+2)
SYLLABUS: The entire text, chapters 11-15, vectors up through
line-integrals, culminating in Stokes' theorem, and related results.
Also, a little bit about orbital mechanics [seeing as we have NASA].
>> PREREQ-Exam: There will be a Mini-exam (a test of prerequisite
>> knowledge, and the MATH-GREEK alphabet) on MONDAY, 27Aug.. On our
>> webpage, there is a sample test.

CLASS-PHOTO DAY: Friday, 31Aug2012. Look sharp! If you want to be
in the photo, then please bring name-card with (optional but useful)
your telephone number.

Letters-of-recommendation (LORs): I base LOR substantially
on how a student "thinks on his feet".
I generally ask that students have had /two/ courses with me
before asking for a LOR. See
http://www.math.ufl.edu/~squash/teaching.html#namelor
for important details.
