Emphasizes acquisition of solution techniques; illustrates ideas with specific example problems arising in science and engineering. Includes applications of vector differential calculus, complex variables; line-surface integrals; integral theorems; and Taylor and Laurent series, and contour integration.
MATH 126 or MATH 136
There are no required textbooks.
- Vector Calculus
- Complex Variables
The overall grade for the class is accumulated from the scores of homework (40%) and exams (60%). There is one midterm exam, and the final exam. The grade for the class is assigned at the end of the quarter after the final exam is graded, however you are welcome to email me with questions about your current grade at any time during the semester to see how well you are doing. All missing work (HWs/Exams) is awarded zero points, so be sure to turn-in on time. The written work is expected to be neat: illegible work will not be graded. Answers to problems without supporting work or solution will receive no credit.
One lowest homework score is dropped. You are encouraged to cooperate while doing homework, but you are expected to complete the homework on your own and to write the solutions in your own words, and not contain pieces taken verbatim from elsewhere. The homework that looks too much alike will not be counted.
Homework should be turned in by 5pm on the due date. All homework must be stapled.
- online students:
Send your homework to the teaching assistant (TA) assigned to your section.
Examination Policy (online students) :
Local online students may take exams on the UW Seattle campus if there is space available in the classroom. Check with the TA to confirm your seat. Otherwise, online exams must be proctored:
Midterms and finals must be completed on the same day and (if possible) at the same time as the in-class course. If the indicated schedule cannot be arranged, contact the professor or TA to discuss an alternative time. For reference, Seattle is in the Pacific time zone and observes daylight saving time.

Religious Accommodation Policy:
Washington state law requires that UW develop a policy for accommodation of student absences or significant hardship due to reasons of faith or conscience, or for organized religious activities. The University of Washington policy, including information about how to request an accommodation, is available at Faculty Syllabus Guidelines and Resources. Accommodations must be requested within the first two weeks of this course using the Religious Accommodations Request form available at
