Course Goals
Course Objectives
 Develop better understanding of key concepts concerning scalar and vector fields learned previously in Multivariable Calculus courses.
 Gain deeper knowledge of multivariate differentiation operations such as Gradient, Divergent and Curl.
 Master the Integral Theorems at the core of Vector Analysis: the Stokes (Greens’) Theorem and the Divergence
(Gauss’) Theorem.
 Learn the utility of Vector Analysis by learning its relevance to Maxwell’s equations describing the dynamics of electric and magnetic fields.
Course Outcomes
 Students are prepared for further study in the relevant technological disciplines and more advanced mathematics courses.
 Students can apply their knowledge of Vector Analysis to solve problems in engineering and the natural sciences.
Course Assessment: The assessment of objectives is achieved through homework assignments, regular inclass quizzes, and the midterm and final examinations.
Policies
DMS Course Policies: All DMS students must familiarize themselves with, and adhere to, the Department of Mathematical Sciences Course Policies, in addition to official universitywide policies. DMS takes these policies very seriously and enforces them strictly.
Grading Policy: The final grade in this course will be determined as follows:
Homework + Quizzes 
15% 
Midterm Exam I 
25% 
Midterm Exam II 
25% 
Final Exam 
35% 
Your final letter grade will be based on the following tentative curve.

Attendance Policy: Attendance at all classes will be recorded and is mandatory. Please make sure you read and fully understand the Math Department’s Attendance Policy. This policy will be strictly enforced.
Students accumulating more than three absences will have their grade reduced.
Homework and Quizzes: Homework problem sets will be emailed by the instructor after each class. Homework is due on the assigned date; late homework will reduce the number of points awarded, and will only be accepted at discretion of the instructor. Quizzes are given once per week on an announced topic.
Exams: There will be two midterm exams held in class during the semester and one comprehensive final exam. Exams are held on the following days:
Midterm Exam I 
February 8, 2018 
Midterm Exam II 
March 22, 2018 
Final Exam Period 
May 4  10, 2018 
The final exam will test your knowledge of all the course material taught in the entire course. Make sure you read and fully understand the Math Department's Examination Policy. This policy will be strictly enforced.
Makeup Exam Policy: There will be No makeup QUIZZES OR EXAMS during the semester. In the event an exam is not taken under rare circumstances where the student has a legitimate reason for missing the exam, the student should contact the Dean of Students office and present written verifiable proof of the reason for missing the exam, e.g., a doctor’s note, police report, court notice, etc. clearly stating the date AND time of the mitigating problem. The student must also notify the Math Department Office/Instructor that the exam will be missed.
Cellular Phones: All cellular phones and other electronic devices must be switched off during all class times.
