Course Description:
 The study of the calculus continues with the study of 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:
I believe every student has the right to learn and to hear what is being said. Part of your grade includes your level of participation.  "Participation" refers to attending and being attentive during class, as well as not distracting others.  The participation grade is about 25% of the course grade and is affected by attendance if the absence is not made up as described elsewhere in this document.  Also, chronic or unnecessary tardiness may affect your participation grade as well.

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:
  • Periodic assignments
  • Quizzes
  • Tests

Class Assessment:
Three graded examinations will be given.  The exams will cover assigned reading, homework and quizzes.    Reviews will be conducted to ensure students fully grasp the concepts that will be tested.  The exams will cover 75% of the grade while classroom participation will cover the other 25%.


 Each of the 3 exams will count 100 points of the grade with class participation being the remaining 100 points (participation points may be deducted for behavior that disrupts the flow of learning.
Grading scale: A=90-100%, B=80-89, C=70-79, D=60-69, F= BELOW 59.50%

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Late assignments must be approved by the instructor. All absences must be made up by HANDING IN the completed assignment as soon as possible after the absence. Work must be shown that indicates how each answer was obtained wherever possible. If extenuating circumstances arise, please make them known to the instructor so that he can work with you in your situation.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Distractions that disrupt the flow of learning will affect your "participation" grade.  If you need to have a conversation with someone, please take him or her out of the classroom and finish your conversation.  All conversation in the classroom should relate directly to the topic being discussed. Your cooperation in this will be appreciated by all. The classroom will be free of sexual harassment.  Unacceptable behaviors include unwelcome sexual advances, or sexually related or racially related jokes or comments.

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 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.

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 "F".
  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.
