Discussion sections and office hours: In discussion section, among other things, you will work in groups on problems from these worksheets. For the current schedule of discussion sections see Here are the GSI office hours [some still to be posted]:

Any student is welcome to attend the office hours of any GSI.

Textbook: James Stewart, Multivariable calculus early transcendentals for UC Berkeley, seventh edition. This is a custom edition, which is an extract from "Calculus early transcendentals", seventh edition. Thus you can also use the latter book if you happen to own it or can obtain it inexpensively. Please note that there are many other versions of Stewart's calculus book, such as "Essential calculus", "Hybrid version", etc., and these will not work.

Lecture videos: I made videos for my class last year which are available here. These cover roughly the same material as the present class, and so might be useful for review. (Despite the availablity of these videos, hopefully some of you will still come to class, where there will be more jokes and examples as well as the opportunity to ask questions.)
