Is there already a sage tutorial/notes for teaching vector calculus (like double integrals, vector fields, ...). I looked on the teaching website, but there was not so much available yet.

We have lots of worksheets for teaching vector calculus. Several of us have used it quite a bit. See John Travis' talk here: Education Days 3. See also my "Math 100" worksheets here: Math 100

There are numerous worksheets scattered about that deal with multivariate calculus but I don't know of any organized collection--yet. This is something that is being considered and hopefully will be available next time you teach this course.

I have published a number of short worksheets at Mississippi College and you are welcome to give any of them a try. Some of these are being designed to work from within WeBWorK and so may not have very much of a descriptive component.

Thank you very much for your answers! That is very helpful. We are using WebWork as well, so this will be perfect.
