Text: Thomas' Calculus, Early Transcendentals, (Revised Custom edition for UPenn; Picture of Godzilla on the cover). You should buy a new copy from the Penn bookstore, since it comes with an account for MyMathLab, an online homework system we will make use of occassionally. Copies of the book are on reserve in the math/physics library 3rd floor DRL.
We will cover sections
12.1-12.6, 11.6 (Vectors and the Geometry of Space)
13.1-13.6 (Vector-Valued Functions and Motion in Space) (note:section 13.6 will not be on any exams)
14.1-14.8 (Partial Derivatives, Lagrange Multipliers, ...)
15.1-15.8, 11.3 (Multiple Integrals)
16.1-16.8 (Integration in Vector Fields)
More information about the course, including old exams and core problems, can be found on the math departments' Math 114 web page https://www.math.upenn.edu/undergraduate/calculus-homepages/calculus/mathematics-114/

Homework: There will be weekly homework assignments, consisting of the "core" problems, which you will turn in to your recitation instructor. There will also be some online homework assignments using the MyMathLab system. The homework assignments are listed at the bottom of this webpage. Core problem homework and MyMathLab homework assignments together account for 10% of your grade.
