MA 223 Calculus and Analytic for Majors III: The study of calculus extends further with three-dimensional spaces, vectors, multi-variable functions, partial derivatives and their applications, multiple integration. Prerequisite: MA 222 or equivalent. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
Every student is capable of learning anything if s/he studies the proper way. The proper way of studying Mathematical Sciences is to be an active learner, i.e. solve most of the exercises/problems that are suggested by the author of the textbook at the end of each chapter.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Explain what it means to say z = f(x,y) is differentiable with respect to x and with respect to y.
  2. Compute partial derivatives.
  3. State the appropriate version of the chain rule and use it to calculate partial derivatives.
  4. Given an appropriate function z = f(x,y), find the relative minima and maxima of the function.
  5. Compute double and triple integrals.
  6. Use double and triple integrals to compute area, volume, and center of mass.
  7. Recognize and analyze the equation of a sphere.
  8. Apply the distance formula in 3-dimensional space.
  9. Perform algebraic manipulations with vectors.
  10. Compute the norm of a vector and use it in applications.
  11. Compute the dot product and cross product of two vectors and use them in applications.

Core Assessment:

Class Assessment:

There will be 

a mid-semester exam, 25% of your grade
6 homeworks /quizzes, total 35% of your grade (the lowest will be dropped)
a comprehensive final 40% of your grade




Late Submission of Course Materials:
Materials submitted late will receive zero points.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community.

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of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".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