## Attendance

It is imperative that students attend all classes. Students are responsible for all material covered in class, even if attendance is not checked or assignments collected.

## Exams

There will be three semester exams and a cumulative final exam. No makeup exam will be given unless the excuse for missing the scheduled exam is acceptable to the instructor. Any makeup exam must be taken before the next regularly scheduled exam. No exam grade will be dropped.

## Assignments and Projects

There will be four assignments and two Matlab projects during the semester. There will be no makeup assignments. Assignments turned in after their due date will receive an automatic reduction in grade. No assignment, project or exam grade will be dropped.

## Response time

The assignments, projects and exams are typically graded in three days after they are turned in. Special circumstances like snow days, school closing or holidays, may occasionally delay the response time. Barring special circumstances, students’ emails are usually responded to within one working day.

## Course Objectives

• Obtain a well rounded introduction to the area of multivariable function calculus and number and power series.
• Deepen students' knowledge of problem formulation and problem solving techniques required for successful application of mathematics obtained in previous calculus courses.
• Competently use the appropriate technology to model data, implement mathematical algorithms and solve mathematical problems.
• Cultivate the analytical skills required for the efficient use and understanding of mathematics.

## Learning outcomes

Students will:
• be able to demonstrate the proficiency in multivariable function calculus and number and power series,
• be able to differentiate and integrate multivariable functions,
• be able to use multivariable calculus in problem solving,
• know how to use appropriate technology to solve problems applying calculus techniques,
• demonstrate a proficiency in using mathematical software.
