Text:
Calculus with Differential Equations, 9th edition, by Varberg, Purcell and
Rigdon
Course:
Vectors in the plane and in 3-space, differential calculus in several variables,
integration and its applications in several variables, vector fields and line,
surface, and volume integrals. Green’s and Stokes’ theorems.
Prerequisites:
“C” or better in (MATH 1220 OR MATH 1250 OR MATH 1320) OR AP
Calculus BC score of at least 4.
Tests:
We will have 3 exams and a final, all of which will be cumulative. More details
on content will be provided as the first test-date nears.
Homework:
Homework will be assigned on a weekly basis. Assignments will be posted on
the website, under the “Math 2210” link.
A (93-100), A- (90-92), B+ (87-89), B (83-86), B- (80-82), C+ (77-79), C
(73-76), C- (70-72), D+ (67-69), D (63-66), D- (60-62), E (0-59).
3 exams, homework, and a final exam will determine your grade. I will drop
your lowest exam score (but not the final). The remaining 2 exam scores,
homework score, and final exam score will each count toward 25% of your
grade. Missed exams cannot be made up - see me if you need to reschedule
an exam.
Discussion Section:
Wednesdays, 5-6 pm in LCB 222
Free tutoring:
Available at the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Student Center (adjacent to JWB and LCB), Room 155. M - Th 8am - 8pm; F 8am - 6pm.
Learner Outcomes: Upon successful completion of this course, a student should be able to:
•
•
•
•
Compute dot and cross products of two vectors, projection of one vector onto another vector.
