Class Time 16:30 – 19:15
Prerequisite MA211
Credit Hours 3

Textbook(s): Larson, Hostetler, Edwards, Calculus, 7th Edition, Houghton Mifflin Publishers, 2002.

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:
Each student will become familiar with multi-dimensional space and associated functions and will be proficient in performing partial differentiation and multiple integration.

Learning Objectives:
The student will learn vectors in two and three dimensions; learn how to determine the dot and vector products of vectors; be familiar with vector-valued functions and space curves in addition to their limits, derivatives, and integrals; learn how to describe curvilinear; be familiar with functions of several variables; be able to take partial derivatives of functions; learn the properties of increments and differentials; know how to apply the chain rule to partial differentiation; know how to perform directional derivatives; be able to perform double integration; learn how to compute area and volume; be familiar with double integrals in polar coordinates; be able to compute surface area; be able to perform triple integration.

Course Arrangements:
Lecture, class discussion and group project.

Grading:
The final grade will be determined using the following percentages:

Participation 10%
Exams 90%


The course letter final grades will be determined as follows:

90 - 100% A
80 - 89% B
70 - 79% C
60 - 69% D
Below 60% F (or three or more unexcused absences).

There will be no curve used in the grading nor will extra work be accepted for credit.

Late Submission of Course Materials: The instructor will not accept assignments late unless for documented, excused reasons. Unexcused reasons for assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of “zero”.

Classroom Rules of Conduct: Class participation is expected, students are expected to come to all classes and be on time. Roll will be checked at each class meeting. Classes missed for legitimate reasons (e.g. illness, TDT) are excusable; however the student is expected to make up the missed class work. Three unexcused absences are excessive and will be reported to the Military Resident Center Administrator. TDY orders may be given to the instructor or turned into the school office.

Plagiarism:

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.
