TMA4115 - Calculus 3 - Spring 2016


  • Welcome to Calculus 3!
  • Exercise classes start in week 3!
  • All students are now registered on the exercise webpage. If you are not registered, send an email to Herman with your NTNU username.
  • In order to spread out the students over the student assistants as best as possible, please attend a exercise session which is planned for your line of study. You can see the (updated) list of the group hours here.
  • Be careful when you scan or photograph your exercise. Make sure that the student assistants can read and correct them. This is also a great opportunity for you to learn how to write word or pdf documents (using, for example, LaTeX).
  • The deadline for handing in exercises have been changed from Fridays at 14:00 to Fridays at 23:59.
  • The deadline for handing in exercises after Easter will be Wednesdays at 23:59.
  • The NITO students are planning to arrange a crash course in Mathematics 3. On this occasion they would welcome input from students on topics they want to cover. The date is not set in stone yet, but is expected to be a week before the exam. You can make suggestions when you visit the link If you have questions, contact Marcus B. Wikstøl, Event coordinator NITO Studentene,
  • We have published exercise 13, containing problems covering the last part of the lectures.
  • Permitted examination aids for Calculus 4 are code C; Karl Rottman: Matematisk Formelsamling, and a basic calculator NTNUs specifications
  • Gereon will have office hours on Tuesday, May 10, 14:00 - 15:30, and Thursday, May 12, 10:00 - 11:30, room 1246 in Sentralbygg 2. Stop by with all your questions.

Differential equations, linear algebra and its applications.
Pearson, compiled by IMF, NTNU.
Second edition.

Note: The second edition differs from the first mainly in the first chapter on complex numbers.
The remaining parts on second order differential equations and linear algebra are updated versions of previous editions.
Conclusion: To learn the material, we recommend the second edition, but you may still use the first edition.
Be aware though that the exercises and the lectures always refer to the second edition.
