Math 2263, Fall 2019, Professor D. Hejhal
This page will be used for general announcements and the homework listing.
Please check it regularly!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
LAST UPDATE: 12 DEC 2019
=======================================================================
CURRENT OFFICE HOURS: MWF 1:40-2:25pm. (note: 1:40pm)
I can also answer some questions after lecture.
================================================================
FINAL EXAM, FRIDAY, DEC 13, 12 noon - 3PM
RAPSON HALL 100; spread yourselves out in the room,
it is a big room.
FINAL EXAM HAS 12 MULTIPLE CHOICE PROBLEMS, 5 WRITE-OUT PROBS.
================================================================
*** The final exam is on fundamentals, not horribly long or
complicated problems! ***
As I said in lecture, SINGLE best advice is study our old hour
exams, solution sheets, and your quizzes.
PLEASE ALSO REVIEW THE ALGEBRA USED IN BOOK WITH LAGRANGE
ON PAGES 973+975. Nonlinear equations often need a quick
"refresher".
THE MATH LIBRARY (website www.lib.umn.edu/math ) HAS
OLD FINAL EXAMS FROM 2263. They can be used as a *GENERAL* sample.
IT IS WORTH LOOKING. Some (by no means all) were written by DH.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE ANY ANSWERS TO THOSE EXAM PROBLEMS.
I think I "may have" taught 2263 in Spring **2009**; my memory is rusty.
I like center-of-mass in R^2; it's a nice basic application.
-------------------------------------
The Review Sheets (for hour exam material) from Carolynn Johnson
are found under Handouts. Time is short. Here are the problems
that "catch my eye" as relevant for a 'fundamental' final exam.
CHECKLIST FOR YOU??
midterm 1 -- 1,3,6,8,9,10,11, 12(marginal), 13 (yes!), 14
midterm 2 -- 1,3,4,5,6,7,8 (can you guess u and v), 9 (a bit too long!)
midterm 3 -- 1 (NO! but be able to do div, curl), 2,
4 (note z=3; and ds should be dr),
5 (ds should be dr), 6 (maybe), 7,8; (her sheet does
not have a 3-dim Stokes as such)
--------------------------
DOUBLE-CHECK YOUR MULTIPLE CHOICE ANSWERS! THERE HAVE BEEN "TRAPS"
SET FOR YOU. This is a common cause of losing points. The problems
may be easy, but still double-check your choice.

==================================
DEC 6 LECTURE COMMENT:
The 'slick/cheat' method I showed of getting rid of dz by writing
it as g_x dx + g_y dy is NOT a universal simplifier. Most of
the time, although it is correct, it creates many additional terms
in the 'new' dx,dy line integral -- HENCE you get many more
terms to do in Green's theorem (versus just using Stokes!). The
situation depends very much on the problem -- especially on what
g(x,y) is. I did the 'cheat' method since g(x,y) = 2-y is very
simple!!!
DEC 6 LECTURE COMMENT #2: Theorem 0 should be your favorite theorem
in 2263 (... even if it is clearly FALSE). But, your second favorite
should be Stokes' theorem. (Or else maybe Green's Theorem.)

========================================================================
It is very important to note that, in the Oct 14 lecture, I explained
how making z-axis point out of the paper (sun at z = + infinity) allows us
to set up double integrals for (signed) volume WITHOUT DRAWING the
3-d figure, i.e. only drawing the "base" B. The key is to determine where
the light ray enters the solid and where it exits. This can be written
in a sentence -- instead of drawn.

The lectures in this class are done in tandem with the Stewart book,
Calculus Early Transcendentals, VOLUME TWO, 8th Edition. The book is
quite readable (as many course evaluations have shown). In response to
student input, I'll be deviating from the book as need be, so as to
expedite things and to "mesh" more closely with the __actual__ content of
our exams!

SPECIAL SCHEDULE NOTE
The final exam is FRIDAY, Dec 13, 12:00-3:00pm. (The Common Final Day.)
All registered students are expected to take the final exam at this
time unless a special arrangement has been made, e.g., with Disability
Services or the Undergraduate Math Office. [Read that sentence again!]
The instructor is __NOT__ responsible for any problems with this.
(See also the related comment in the course Syllabus below.)
==========================================================================
CONCERNING HOMEWORK:
If you are using any kind of manual -- online or hardcopy -- in
doing your HW, I urge you in the strongest possible terms to
try the problems on your own first BEFORE looking anything up
to see the "full solution". If you wish to go 'intermediate' on this,
look up only the ANSWER first: then try to get that answer.
NOT following this advice will typically show up VERY(!) clearly on the
hour exams. Remember: it is important to think through THE LOGIC on
each homework problem that you do, not just "grind" or "plug and chug".
==========================================================================
THE LATEST STARRED AND "HAND-IN" HOMEWORK
A) Starred problems or things similar will appear on the Thursday
quizzes. Pay particular attention to these.
B) Hand-in problems (labelled "H") are the ones that Prof. Hejhal wants
you to __hand in__ to your TA. A selection of these will be given a
rough grade by your TA. Any "H" problems assigned during week N are due
Thursday of week N+1.
C) Cf. also the recommended/optional problems listed after the Syllabus.

COURSE SYLLABUS
MATH 2263 (Lecture 020) Fall 2019
TEXT: Calculus, Early Transcendentals VOL TWO (2016, 8th ed.), by J.Stewart
LECTURER: Prof. Dennis Hejhal
Vincent Hall 220
Phone 625-4557
Email hejhal@math.umn.edu
LOCATION AND TIME: Tate 105, MWF 2:30-3:20pm
EXAMS, QUIZZES, HW: There will be 3 one-hour tests and approximately 11 weekly
quizzes (10-15 minutes long depending on # of problems).
The hour exams and quizzes will be given during the recitations. The sections
in textbook covered by the tests will be announced in lecture. Quizzes will
be based on homework problems.
3 tests 3 x 100 = 300 pts. (3 x 20%)
HW + quizzes 50 pts. (10%)
three hour final exam 150 pts. (30%)
--------------------------------------------
TOTAL points 500 pts.
Course grades will be based primarily on your exam performance. The HW+quizzes are
vital to doing well on the exams; your scores here will also be used by your TA in
rounding out borderline grades. Note: for each student, the 2 lowest quiz
grades will be thrown out. The quizzes are given on THURSDAYS.
There will be TWO types of homework:
a) starred (QUIZ problems will be chosen from among these, either
verbatim or else very similar: be warned!!)
b) hand-in "H" (these problems must be handed in to your TA).
A selection of the hand-in homework will be given an approximate grade. Hand in
**only** those problems designated as 'hand-in'.
TWO NOTES: (a) there are some [supplemental] recommended problems attached
below;
(b) in response to student input, certain "H" problems may be
made up by Prof Hejhal so as to be closer to actual exam
problems. :-)
TENTATIVE Dates for Hour Exams: Oct 10(almost certain); Nov 7; Dec 3 (= a TUESDAY).
DATE OF FINAL EXAM: Common final day, Friday, Dec 13, 12:00--3:00pm.
There are both department and UM rules regarding the Common Final Day
being used for the final exam in CERTAIN courses only. Professor Hejhal
does ___NOT___ make exceptions to these rules!!! Students are expected to
take the final exam for Math 2263 on the common final day. Plan accordingly
with regard to any other classes you may have.
ABSENCE FROM HOUR EXAMS: Missing an hour test is permitted only for
the most compelling of reasons. Except in extraordinary situations, you
should obtain permission to miss a test *in advance*. No make-up exams are
given. If you are excused from taking an hour test, your score for that test
will be determined from your performance on the final exam. N.B. a grade
'transference' of this kind will normally be granted by the instructor at most
ONCE. (In addition: please note, there will also be __no__ make up quizzes!)
CALCULATORS: It is expected that NO calculators of any kind will be permitted
on the exams and quizzes.
ELECTRONICS: No cell phones, laptops, or anything with networking capabililites
are allowed on the exams or quizzes.
NOTE SHEETS (CHEAT SHEETS): Unless _explicitly_ stated by Prof Hejhal and
your TA, no note sheets are permitted on any exams or quizzes.
WITHDRAWAL: See _Fall Semester 2019 Class Schedules_ for policies
concerning cancellations/withdrawals. There are strict deadlines here!
INCOMPLETES: Due to earlier abuse with this, Prof Hejhal adheres strictly
to department and UM rules concerning the grade "INC". The upshot is that
such grades are now given only very rarely, and, when given, the student's
cumulative grade up til that point in the course MUST BE _clearly_ passing
(ie, C- or better) on the exams and quizzes.
GENERAL REMARKS: Though Stewart's book tends to be quite readable (as past
years' course evaluations bear out), Prof Hejhal does occasionally deviate from
the book in the interest of greater clarity and expediting things. It is therefore
important to come to lecture -- or else have regular access to someone's notes.
There may also be occasional hand-outs.
Many years of experience have shown that it is VERY important to keep
up-to-date in this class. The material covered (chaps. 12, 14-16) becomes
increasingly difficult, also RUSHED at the end. (Students have made
suggestions about how to avoid the 'crunch' at the end; I will try to use some
so we can go slower there!) If you don't understand things in Math 2263,
it is wise to visit office hours. Help __IS__ available. Prof Hejhal welcomes
suggestions about how to improve the class; these can be left at any time in his
department mailbox on the first floor of Vincent Hall (or else simply sent
by email).
OVERALL, in past years, the course evaluations for Math 2263, when taught by
Professor Hejhal, have 'on average' stated:
(a) the course is agreeable, but hard;
(b) the book is not bad, and should be read;
(c) it is very important to keep up-to-date;
(d) the course is a steady uphill climb (be warned);
(e) the hour exams basically have 'no gimmicks' PROVIDED you do
the homework.
