“A
mathematician, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns. If his patterns
are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ** ideas**.”

**TEXTBOOK:** *Calculus:
Early Transcendentals* *(*6th Edition) by James Stewart. Brooks/Cole
2008.

**COURSE
DESCRIPTION:**
A continuation of the study of single-variable calculus, and a study of
multivariable calculus. Topics include parametric equations, polar coordinates,
vectors and vector-valued functions, partial differentiation, Lagrange
multipliers, double and triple integrals, and line integrals.

**PREREQUISITE:** MAT 225. Fall
and Spring

**GENERAL
EDUCATION CURRICULUM OBJECTIVES:** As a member of the Georgetown College academic community, you will cultivate skills in inquiry and analysis,
critical and creative thinking, and quantitative literacy. This course will
help you learn to think mathematically and prepare you for future academic and
real-world pursuits. And don't forget that math is everywhere and without math
we wouldn't have the Internet, the i-Pod, the i-Pad, cell phones or TV.

**LEARNING
OUTCOMES: **Students
who pursue the study of mathematics are trained to solve problems and to
communicate such solutions effectively. After completing this course, you
should be able to demonstrate basic content knowledge of vectors and vector
calculus, limits, partial derivatives and their applications, and double and
triple integrals on homework, quizzes, and exams. You will also be able to
apply problem-solving skills to arrive at correct solutions on homework, quizzes,
and exams and improve critical thinking skills and written communications
skills.

**GRADING:
** The
following percentages will be used in grading:

15%Quizzes

20% Homework

45% Tests (3 Tests — 15% each)

20% Comprehensive Final Exam

**NUMBER-TO-LETTER
GRADE SCALE: A:**
93–100; **A/B:** 88–92; **B:** 83–87; B**/C:** 78–82; **C:**
70–77; **D:** 60–69; **F:** below 60. I reserve the right to adjust
this scale slightly at the end of the semester.

**CLASS:** Every
student in MATH 325A will attend three 50-minute sections each week. The class
will be in the scheduled classroom and will be the same days each week (M/W/F).

**ATTENDANCE
POLICY:**
Attendance is not required but highly recommended. Please inform me in advance
if you are planning on missing class.

**QUIZZES:
**There will be
three to four in-class quizzes during the semester. These quizzes will be
in-between each of your exams, including the final. Think of these quizzes as
"mini-exams." Make-up quizzes will be given only in extreme
circumstances and determined by me.

**HOMEWORK:
** Homework
will be due at the beginning of class and collected. I will only accept ONE
late homework assignment. Any other homework assignment turned in after the
start of class on the due date will not be accepted. Homework may be worked on
in groups; however, all work turned in must be written up by you and you alone.
You must attempt **every** problem and **show work** for every problem to
receive credit for your assignment. Homework will be graded as follows: two to
three questions will be graded for correctness for a total of 6 points;
completeness will earn 4 points (i.e., you did every problem, correct or not).

** **

**TESTS:** Three tests
will be given throughout the semester. Excused absences consist of medical
issues or emergencies approved by me **before** the test is given. In the
case of a **documented** excused absence, I most likely will replace the
test score with the grade of your final. Unexcused absences will result in a
zero score. ** **

** **

**FINAL:** There will be
a cumulative final given on Wednesday, May 11, from Noon to 2 p.m.

**WEB
RESOURCES: **Announcements,
course information, homework assignments, review sheets, etc., will be posted
on Moodle. It is your responsibility to check for any updates before each
class.

**HELP:** There are two
main sources for you to get help. First and foremost are your fellow
classmates. I encourage you to work together on your homework assignments as
well as studying and learning the material in groups. I am your second source.
Please come to the posted office hours. If you cannot make any of the office
hours, you may schedule an appointment.

**ACADEMIC HONESTY
POLICY:** I take cheating very seriously. If you are caught cheating,
you will most likely end up with a failing grade. Students
should read the Academic Honesty Policy in the Honor System section of their
Georgetown College Catalog.
