Course Description:
The algebra and calculus of vectors and vector functions, constant termed sequences and series, power series and convergence criteria. PREREQUISITE: MA 211. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, activities, quizzes, and examinations. The instructor encourage exploration of the material and questoning to deeper the student's understanding and empower them to take responsability for their success in the course.

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.

Core Assessment:

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, three exams and two quizzes. Quizzes/homework assignments are worth 30%, and exams are worth 70%.
