Here is the catalog description of this course.

01:640:291. Honors Calculus III (4) Prerequisites: 01:640:191-192 or permission of department.Covers the same material as 01:640:251 in a more thorough and demanding fashion. |

Analytic geometry of three dimensions, partial derivatives, optimization techniques, multiple integrals, vectors in Euclidean space, and vector analysis. |

A math department page has the following discussion which may be useful to students:

251 vs. 251H vs. 291
Math 251 continues the sequence begun with Math 151-152, usually with the same textbook and at the same level of rigor. The honors sections labeled 251H of Math 251 are (in general) intended for honors students in disciplines other than mathematics and are "more demanding versions of the same course." By contrast, Math 291 is deliberately intended as a course in honors mathematics for students whose primary interest in the course is the mathematics it contains. The textbook may not be that used in other calculus courses, and the choice of course material is at the instructor's discretion to a greater extent than in other lower-division courses. Theorems may be proved in class and required on examinations, and "many variables" may mean n variables, not just 2 or 3. |

**Meeting time(s) and place(s)**

The course meets three times a week: on Monday, Wednesday, and
Thursday from 5:00 to 6:20 (Busch sixth period) in SEC 205, Busch
Campus. Students are expected to attend all classes.

**Text**

We will use the text for Math 251: *Calculus (Early
Transcendentals)*, by James Stewart, 5^{th} edition,
Brooks/Cole Publishing Co., 1999. Additional material may be handed
out or available on the web.

There are many texts covering the material in this course. One text at
an appropriate level covering the climactic (!) ideas is * Div,
Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus* by
Harry M. Schey, a paperback costing $33 published by W.W. Norton,
4^{th} edition, 2005.

**Syllabus**

Here is the Math 251
syllabus and the Math 251
problem list which students should print out.

Students should consider all the problems listed and write out answers
as possible when the related sections in the book are
covered. Students will be required to some problems to be graded.

**Grading**

There will be two exams in class and a three-hour cumulative
final. There will be graded homework, both workshop writeups and
standard problems. There may be short unannounced quizzes in
class. All of this will be blended to create a number to be translated
into a term grade. The likely weight of these components is now
(before the semester begins -- things might change!) 100 points for
each in-class exam, 200 points for the final, and 200 points for other
work.

This is an honors course. Students who attend class and are diligent
and reasonably successful will get grades of B or above. There is
*no fixed percentage of grades* at any level, so students are
*not* competing for grades.

**Office hour(s)**

To be announced.
