Material for Review of Multivariable Calculus

Multivariable Calculus will play a major role in Math 7313. If you feel a bit rusty on it, I recommend the lecture notes and homework problems from my Math 2415 course, which covers Chapters 12-16 of Stewart's Calculus text. The most relevant material is that covered in Lectures 2,5,7,9,10,11,13,17,21,22,24,25,26,28,29. I also have a large collection of past exams.
