Discussion sections: For the current schedule of discussion sections see The GSI's are:

Textbook: James Stewart, Multivariable essential calculus. This is a custom edition, which I believe is an extract from "Essential calculus early transcendentals", first edition. It is definitely not the same as the book which was used for Math 53 a couple of years ago (which was "Calculus: early transcendentals", fifth edition). The differences consist of minor reorganization of the chapters, and deletion and addition of some homework problems. The old book is probably fine for studying, but you will need the new book to do the homework.

In addition, you will need a book of "worksheets" which can be purchased at Copy Central. The worksheets contain practice problems which you will work on in groups in the discussion sections.
