COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course builds on the fundamentals of the calculus of one variable, and includes infinite series, power series, differential equations of first and second order, numerical integration, and an analysis of improper integrals. It also covers the calculus of several variables: limits, partial derivatives, and multiple integrals.

SUMMARY OF COURSE CONTENT:
The course is a further development of calculus at a more advanced level. We will start with some vector geometry and matrices (later to be used in analysing surfaces), then cover power series (including Taylor series), geometry of surfaces (quadric surfaces, ruled surfaces, level sets), and then start with functions of several variables  partial derivatives, critical points and the Hessian matrix, volumes as double integrals.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:
The student will learn how to use classic Calculus techniques to analyze functions and models, and become acquainted with the geometry of surfaces.

GRADING POLICY
ASSESSMENT METHODS:
Assignment  Guidelines  Weight 
Midterm exam  The midterm exam will cover the material from the first half of the course.  30% 
individual takehome test  Due in conjunction with the final exam, there will be a longer homework assignment that covers all of the class material  these questions are designed to be somewhat more challenging that those in the exam, since they are to be done with notes, textbook, etc.  20% 
Final exam  comprehensive final exam on June 26th  40% 
Homeworks and participation  10% of the grade will be calculated based on the homework assignments submitted  here I am looking for each student's best effort, not necessarily that every is done correctly the first time.  10% 
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA:
AWork of this quality directly addresses the question or problem raised and provides a coherent argument displaying an extensive knowledge of relevant information or content. The student demonstrates complete, accurate, and critical knowledge of all the topics, and is able to solve problems autonomously. BThis is highly competent level of performance and directly addresses the question or problem raised.There is a demonstration of some ability to critically evaluate theory and concepts and relate them to practice. The work does not suffer from any major errors or omissions and provides evidence that the student uses clear logic in their arguments. CThis is an acceptable level of performance and provides answers that are clear but limited, reflecting the information offered in the lectures. Mathematical statements are properly written most of the time. DThis level of performances demonstrates that the student lacks a coherent grasp of the material. Important information is omitted and irrelevant points included. Many mistakes are made in solving the problem raised. In effect, the student has barely done enough to persuade the instructor that they should not fail. FThis work fails to show any knowledge or understanding of the subject matter. Most of the material in the answer is irrelevant.
ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS:
Lack of participation could mean withdrawal of permission to sit the final exam (in line with university policy)


ACADEMIC HONESTY
As stated in the university catalog, any student who commits an act of academic
dishonesty will receive a failing grade on the work in which the dishonesty occurred.
In addition, acts of academic dishonesty, irrespective of the weight of the assignment,
may result in the student receiving a failing grade in the course. Instances of
academic dishonesty will be reported to the Dean of Academic Affairs. A student
who is reported twice for academic dishonesty is subject to summary dismissal from
the University. In such a case, the Academic Council will then make a recommendation
to the President, who will make the final decision.

STUDENTS WITH LEARNING OR OTHER DISABILITIES
John Cabot University does not discriminate on the basis of disability or handicap.
Students with approved accommodations must inform their professors at the beginning
of the term. Please see the website for the complete policy.
