Another is analytic- determine dx, dy, and dz in terms of r, [itex]\theta[/itex], [itex]\phi[/itex], [itex]dr[/itex], [itex]d\theta[/itex], and [itex]d\phi[/itex], then multiply- but remember that multiplcation of differentials is anti-commutative: [itex]a(r,\theta, \phi)drd\theta= -a(r, \theta, \phi)d\theta dr[/itex].
