Academic Conduct: As testament to their commitment and readiness to join the Santa Monica College academic
community, all students are expected to uphold the Honor Code. Cheating of any kind during exams or quizzes will
result in severe consequences such as receiving a failing grade or being dropped from the course as well as being reported
to the honors council as academically dishonest. Cheating includes altering graded materials and using external resources
such as electronic devices and cheat sheets during exams and quizzes or, copying someone else’s homework and out-ofclass assignments to complete own exam, project, or homework assignments. Requesting special grading consideration
due to your transfer plans or other personal situations is inappropriate and may result in disciplinary action. Asking the
instructor for “extra credit” is strictly prohibited.
Classroom conduct: Classroom is a learning environment for all students enrolled. All need to be courteous of others.
If you have a question during lecture then wait for the instructor to finish his/her statement before raising your hand to
ask the question. Private conversations with the instructor should be held in office hours, not during class time.
See Student Code of Conduct: http://www.smc.edu/StudentServices/StudentJudicialAffairs/Documents/AR4410.pdf
Cell phones are a huge source of distraction in the classroom for you and for the others. They must be deactivated
while class is in session. This means no sounds or vibrations may occur from an incoming text message or a phone call.
Students who use smart devices and mobiles while class is in session will be asked to leave. Anyone who uses a cell
phone or any other unapproved electronic devices during an exam receives a failing grade for that exam.
Food or drink is strictly prohibited in the Math Complex with the exception of water bottles.
Communicating With The Instructor: You must e-mail the instructor via your school e-mail account in case
you need to contact the instructor. Any message sent from a personal address such as G-mail or Yahoo may
automatically be marked as spam and will not be responded. Include your name and the section number in the
message. An e-mail message to the instructor must be written with a professional manner. A message beginning with
“Hey” will be completely ignored.
Students with Disabilities: Santa Monica College accommodates students with disabilities. If you qualify for any special
accommodations due to a disability, you need to officially process your request through the Disabled Students Programs
and Services (DSPS) office as close to the beginning of the semester as possible. If you believe you have a learning
disability that has not yet been documented, please see me and make an appointment at the DSPS office for assistance.
The DSPS office is located in the Admissions/Student Services Complex, Room 101, and the phone numbers are (310)
434-4265 and (310) 434-4273 (TDD). Scheduling of accommodated exams will be arranged on a case-by-case basis.
Class Census Day: September 10, 2018
Last Day to Withdraw to Receive a Refund: September 09, 2018
Last Day to Withdraw to Avoid a "W": September 09, 2018
Last Day to Withdraw to Guarantee a "W": November 18, 2018
It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of the dates above and to take the appropriate actions.
Student Learning Outcomes:
1. Given vector-valued or real-valued functions involving two or more independent variables, identify and use appropriate
techniques to analyze the fundamental properties of those functions. Included would be partial and directional derivatives,
gradients, differentials, and integrals over lines, surfaces and solid regions.
2. Setup and solve physical applications problems related to all aspects of motion along a curve. Included would be the
arclength parametrization of a curve and the use of tangent, velocity, normal and binormal vectors, curvature, and the
tangential and normal components of acceleration and their relationship to the osculating plane containing the circle of
best fit at a point on the curve.
3. Apply Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, and Gauss' Divergence Theorem with the concepts of divergence and curl
and flux. Students will solve problems related to vector fields including magnetic fields, flow fields, and conservative vector
Calculators: No calculator of any kind will be used for this course.
Attendance is highly advised. Each has a negative impact on your performance. Your third absence may result in an
automatic withdrawal from the course. If you miss a session, make sure you update yourself on the material that has
been covered on your day of absence.
Tardiness: Being tardy twice is equivalent to having one absence.
Methods of Evaluation
A) Exams: There will be three exams, which are based on suggested homework assignments, class lectures, and
discussions. Exams are closed notes and closed book. You must use a pencil to complete each exam. An eraser must
be used if necessary. Your grade will be penalized if there are any scratch marks on your exam paper. No make-up
exam will be given. All notes, books, cell phones, pencil cases must be out of your reach during all exams. The
minimum score of your exams is replaced by the percentage of your final exam score given that your final exam
percentage is greater than the minimum of exam scores.
B) Quizzes: The date for each quiz will be announced in advance. The number of quizzes varies.
C) Final Exam: The final exam is cumulative and is mainly focused on Chapter 18. In order to get a satisfactory grade on
the final exam you should frequently review the materials that have been covered previously. Failing to take the final
exam will result in a failing grade.
Grading Method:
Final Exam
Letter grades:
*This is an approximate total number of points. The actual
total may be different.
A: 90-100%, B: 80-89%, C: 70-79%, D: 60-69%, F: <59%
Your average grade is determined by Total points* earned  100%
In order to succeed in Calculus III
You do not to be a math genius. In the past decade that I have taught, I only have encountered a couple
of students who are naturally good at math; but, hundreds of my students have earned a grade of A.
You must have the knowledge of the items in the entry skills list mentioned earlier as well as having
mastered trigonometry, parametric graphs, and the polar coordinate system.
You must be dedicated, highly patient, and maintain a highly optimistic attitude.
You need to be a critical thinker and avoid fundamental errors.
Read, listen to, and properly execute the instructions that are imposed by the instructor.
 Keep your phone out of your way, out of your sight, and out of your life while you are in class.
Read the lecture after class and practice enough problems before the next class meeting.
Repeat practicing the same difficult problem until it is not difficult any longer.
Be curious about mathematics. You are here because you want to learn.
