M579: Multivariable Calculus
I will no longer be maintaining this page regularly as all content has migrated to a new page with more features at Schoology.com.
Current students: If you cannot access my Schoology page, please ask for an Access Code.
To all others: I will try to update this page from time to time with updated materials. Please feel free to email if you have questions/suggestions/requests/etc.

When I am away from class for a conference or when we have a snow day, I will often post my lessons to YouTube. You can find my YouTube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/fhsmath. Here's the video I currently have available for Multivariable Calc:

Class of 2012 Final Projects:
For our final project after the exam, the students worked in partners to create Wolfram Demonstrations (http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/). Their task was to create a Demonstration that illustrates an interesting mathematical or scientific idea in a way that users will find interesting and interactive.
Congratulations to David and Andrew J, whose project was published on 6/3/2012:
Fun Math Videos/Links:
I made a "Planet Mapper" Mathematica demonstration, which you are welcome to fiddle with if you are interested (warning: large file). It projects a cylindrical map of a planet onto a sphere so that you can manipulate it and revolve it like a globe. Currently, you can do this with the Earth, Moon, Sun, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune. Hopefully this inspires you to think about our class project in May!
