Chapter 16 -- Vector Calculus

The videos for Chapter 16 are already organized on the web page linked below from when I was preparing for maternity leave in 2013-2014. Since I have that separate, the links below are organized differently than I had above, but I think it is clear what goes with which day.

The above course notes, assignments, and quizzes are for the Calculus D (SDSU Math 252) classes I teach at Torrey Pines High School. I wrote and modified these notes over several semesters. The explanations are my own; however, I borrowed several examples and diagrams from the textbooks* my classes used while I taught the course. Over time, I have changed some examples and have forgotten which ones came from which sources. Also, I have chosen to keep the notes in my own handwriting rather than type to maintain their informality and to avoid the tedious task of typing so many formulas, equations, and diagrams. These notes are free for use by my current and former students. If other calculus students and teachers find these notes useful, I would be happy to know that my work was helpful. - Abby Brown

Most of the links are PDF files that can be read with Adobe Reader. If you have trouble downloading the files, try right-clicking and selecting "Save Target As..." If you have trouble printing, try printing five or so pages at a time rather than all at once. For best results, use the most current version of Adobe Reader.
