Course Syllabus Math 251 Multivariable Calculus Fall 2018 Fullerton College Mathematics Department Instructor: Marianna Jagodina CRN: 13513 Location: Room 618 Days & Times: T, R 5:30 p.m. 7:35 p.m. Office Hours: Mondays 3 pm 4 pm Wednesdays 3 pm 5 pm Thursdays 3 pm 5:25 pm Math Lab hours Thursdays 10:15 am 12:20 pm Prerequisite: Math 152 (formerly Math 150B) Calculus, or equivalent, with a grade of “C” or better. Course Description: This is a third semester course in calculus covering solid analytic geometry, vectors in three dimensions, vector calculus, differential calculus of functions of several variables, multiple integration, vector fields and theorems. Student Learning Outcomes: 1) Analyze a vector-valued function and produce the associated vector-valued or scalar functions that describe the motion which it defines. 2) Perform partial differentiation to find extrema of multivariable functions. 3) Construct and evaluate double integrals in both rectangular and polar coordinates in order to solve applied problems involving area, mass, volume, or other physical phenomena. Textbook: Larson, Edwards, Multivariable Calculus, Tenth Edition , published by CENGAGE Learning, ISBN-13: 978-1285060293 or Larson, Hostetler, Edwards, Calculus of a Single Variable Early Transcendental Functions, Sixth Edition, published by Houghton Mifflin. Calculators: A graphing calculator is recommended. The TI-84 graphing calculator is a good choice since this is the calculator I will be using during in-class demonstrations. A calculator may be permitted for use on some quizzes and tests. If you do not have a calculator at the time of the quiz/test, you may NOT share one with a classmate. TI-89 or above (or equivalent model) will not be allowed. You may not use your cell phone calculator on quizzes or tests.

Math 251, Fall 2018 Syllabus Jagodina 2 What to Expect: This course is a continuation of the first year of calculus, Math 151 (formerly Math 150A) and Math 152 (formerly Math 150B). You will be expected to know the fundamental topics of the 150-series very well. The better your skills are in differentiation and integration, the easier you will find comprehending the material in this course. If you are rusty in those areas, it will be your responsibility to review. As with every new math course, homework is an important part of the learning process. The homework is supposed to be challenging and you are expected to struggle. Do not use the student solutions manual to circumvent this process. If a student puts considerable amount of effort into this class but does not pass, it is usually due to reliance on the solutions manual. Plan on spending at least 4 hours per week on out-of-class studying. Setting a regular schedule can be very effective.
