This is the final course in a three-semester sequence. In this course the ideas from the first two semesters will be extended to higher dimensions. This course will cover five chapters from the 5th edition of Larson and Edwards Calculus Early Transcendental Functions.
The course will be in five parts. Part one, chapter 11, focuses on the geometry of three-dimensional space. This will include extending the concepts of lines and slopes to three dimensions. Part two, chapter 12, is a repetition of differential calculus with the added feature that functions will be vector valued. Part three, chapter 13, is a repetition of differential calculus where the functions depend on more than one variable. Part four, chapter 14, extends part three into integral calculus. Finally, part five, chapter 15, will tie the first four parts together in a topic called vector analysis.
Math 1734 with a grade of C or better.
Your grade will be based on four hour exams, the best 8 of 10 homework assignments, and a final exam using the following weights
4 exams @100 400
8 homeworks @ 25 200
final exam 200
Letter grades will be computed in the usual fashion, 90% for an A, 80% for a B, etc.
Exams: Long Scantrons and text booklets provided in class
Homework: Handwritten. Put your name on the top of every page.
If you need to miss an exam, you should notify me before the exam is given. If you miss an exam due to an unforeseen situation, such as an accident, you should notify me as soon as possible. No allowances will be made for missed exams unless an adequate reason is given in a timely fashion.
