Robert A. Adams and Christopher Essex, Calculus: Several Variables (or Calculus: A Complete Course) eighth edition or any earlier edition. (Some earlier editions have Adams as the sole author.)

I will post all handouts, problem sets, etc. on the web here.

        curves, velocity, acceleration, arc length, curvature, tangent, normal, binormal, planetary motion.
  2. Vector Fields and Line Integrals (§ 15.1-15.4):
        vector fields, field lines, conservative fields, line integrals.
  3. Surface integrals (§ 15.5, 15.6):
        surfaces, surface area, flux integrals..
  4. Integral Theorems (§ 16):
         gradient, divergence and curl, vector identities, divergence theorem, Green's theorem, Stokes' theorem, applications.
  5. Differential forms (web notes):
