Outcomes and Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
To be successful, students should be able to:
1.Compute partial derivatives, directional derivatives and gradients,
 tangent planes, extrema of function of two variables.
2. Apply chain rules to multivariable and vector functions.
3. Compute and apply area in the plain, double integrals and volume,
  center of mass and moments of inertia.
4. Compute and apply surface area, triple intgrals and volume, triple
  integrals in cylindrical and spherical coordinate Systems.
5. Apply change of variables to evaluate integrals.
6. Apply vector fields, line integrals, independence of path, surface
  integrals, and the theorems of Green, Gauss, & Stokes.

Untitled document
1.  The student will have daily outside reading, problem set assignments
   from the required text(s), or instructor chosen supplementary
2.  Instructional methodology may include, but not limited to: lecture,
   demonstrations, oral recitation, discussion, supervised practice
   independent study, outside project or other assignments.

Methods of Evaluation/Basis of Grade.
Writing: Assessment tools that demonstrate writing skill and/or require students to select, organize and explain ideas in writing.Writing
0 - 0%
This is a degree applicable course but assessment tools based on writing are not included because problem solving assessments and skill demonstrations are more appropriate for this course.
Problem solving: Assessment tools, other than exams, that demonstrate competence in computational or non-computational problem solving skills.Problem Solving
25 - 50%
Homework problems, Exams
Skill Demonstrations: All skill-based and physical demonstrations used for assessment purposes including skill performance exams.Skill Demonstrations
30 - 70%
Performance exams
Exams: All forms of formal testing, other than skill performance exams.Exams
5 - 25%
Multiple choice
Other: Includes any assessment tools that do not logically fit into the above categories.Other Category
0 - 0%

Representative Textbooks and Materials:

Text(s) required of each student will be selected by the department,
a committee of the department, or the responsible instructor from
the books currently available. Choices in the past have included:
