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:


my philosophy is based on constructivist view of mathematics learning. Students construct their own schema. Instructor provides guidance like lectures, HW assignment and tutoring but learning task is placed entirely on student's shoulders. Full use of technology is one of the ways instructor guides students.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89

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.

  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of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".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.
