Course Description:
The algebra and calculus of vectors and vector functions, constant termed  sequences and series, power series and convergence criteria.  Prerequisite:   MA211.  3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
Students should never be bound by the example problems found in a text book.  The ability to solve real world problems comes from practice and familiarity.  Homework assignments should be meaningful and instil greater confidence in the student's abilities.  Lectures should clarify concepts and procedures.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Perform integration by choosing and executing correctly appropriate techniques: substitution, by parts, by partial fractions.
  2. Use L'Hopital's rule to compute limits that have indeterminate forms.
  3. Determine whether an improper integral converges (and then evaluate) or diverges.
  4. Determine whether an infinite series converges or diverges using standard tests.


Class Assessment:
The primary focus of this class is vectors, vector valued functions, functions of several variables and multiple integration.  There will be 5 tests worth 100 points each, and homework (assigned in class) will be worth 200 points.  Additional participation points of upto 50 points will also be considered.

Grading:
Grading will be based on
A 90 to 100%

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
