Please note the following guidelines for the course:
Text: Introduction to Vector Analysis by H. F. Davies and A. D. Snider, 7th Edition, Hawkes Publishing, ISBN: 0697160998. Additional books of interest: 1. Susan Jane Colley, Vector Calculus, Fourth Edition; 2. M.R. Spiegel, Schaum’s OutlinesVector Analysis, McGrawHill; 3. Paul C. Matthews, Vector Calculus, Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series, 1998, SpringerVerlag London, eBook ISBN 9781447105978, Softcover ISBN, 9783540761808
Grades: The final grade will be determined by homework (10%), two midterms( 50%) and a final exam (40%). The Final Exam score will replace all midterm scores that are lower than the Final Exam score. All grades will be posted on UNMLearn. Although a small curve might be used, 90% , 80% or 70% of the possible maximum points guarantees at least an A, B or C, respectively.
Homework: Homework is due every Monday at the beginning of the class. You are encouraged to work together on the homework, but you are required to write up your own solutions in your own words. Links to solutions to most of the homework problems can be found on UNMLearn. Please note the Academic dishonesty section below. To help the grader, please write your solutions up neatly and clearly (no points will be given for work that the reader cannot follow this is also true for exams). The two lowest homework grades will be dropped. Please no late homework! The syllabus also lists recommended homework problems. These are NOT to be handed in. Work as many as it takes for you to understand the material. Keep all of your homework together in a folder for an easy reference. You should see me as early and as often as necessary if you are having difficulties with the homework problems.
Reading: You are expected to read the textbook. Since class time is short, there will be theorems and examples that you will need to read on your own. Reading sections in the book before they are discussed in class will help you to get the most out of class time and to stay on top of the material. This is especially true for the material marked in the schedule as "review from Calculus III". I will almost exclusively only do problems and go beyond what you learned in Calculus III in these sections.
Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, dishonesty in quizzes, tests, or assignments; claiming credit for work not done or done by others; hindering the academic work of other students; misrepresenting academic or professional qualifications within or without the University; and nondisclosure or misrepresentation in filling out applications or other University records. Each student is expected to maintain the highest standards of honesty and integrity in academic and professional matters. The University reserves the right to take disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal, against any student who is found guilty of academic dishonesty or who otherwise fails to meet the expected standards. Any student judged to have engaged in academic dishonesty in course work may receive a reduced or failing grade for the work in question and/or for the course.
Exams: The exam dates are given in the schedule below. No makeup exams will be given unless you contact your instructor ahead of time with a documented “university authorized absence” (illness, family emergency, active participation in scholarly or athletic events). All exams can include some multiplechoice questions. The exams will be based on the homework problems.
Disability Statement: We will accommodate students with documented disabilities. During the first two weeks of the semester, those students should inform the instructor of their particular needs and they should also contact Accessibility Services in Mesa Vista Hall, Room 2021, phone 2773506.
