Paul's Online Math Notes: Calculus III
Detailed lessons and example problems on all 3rd semester calculus topics. Slightly cringy 2002-era html website, but a fantastic resource nonetheless.
Khan Academy Multivariable Calculus
This youtube playlist covers all the essential topics of the course. It is great if you are an auditory learner – Sal Khan is a fantastic orator. The order of the videos does not match the order of our course perfectly, so you might have to hunt around to find the video you want.
A computational knowledge engine that will put your TI-89 to shame. Just type in plain english "graph z=log(x^2 + y^2)". Experiment with this to get a handle on 3D surfaces. Does not work for plotting vector valued functions (chapter 2). For plotting curves in 3D space use this tool instead.
