# Vector Calculus (MATH 223)

The Math Department offers free online tutoring for Math 223, Monday-Friday. Click here to see the schedule.

## COURSE OBJECTIVES AND LEARNING OUTCOMES:

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

• Recognize and sketch surfaces in three-dimensional space;

• Recognize and apply the algebraic and geometric properties of vectors and vector functions in two and three dimensions;

• Compute dot products and cross products and interpret their geometric meaning;

• Compute partial derivatives of functions of several variables and explain their meaning;

• Compute directional derivatives and gradients of scalar functions and explain their meaning;

• Compute and classify the critical points;

• Parameterize curves in 2- and 3-space;

• Set up and evaluate double and triple integrals using a variety of coordinate systems;

• Evaluate integrals through scalar or vector fields and explain some physical interpretation of these integrals;

• Recognize and apply Fundamental theorem of line integrals, Green’s theorem, Divergence Theorem, and Stokes’ theorem correctly.

## SECTIONS AND INSTRUCTORS

Section information and links to instructor class webpages are found here.

MATH 223 (4 credits)

MATH 196V (1 unit)

## CALCULATORS

A graphing calculator is required for Math 223. We recommend any model in the TI-83 or TI-84 series. Students are not allowed to share calculators during exams and quizzes.

## HOMEWORK

Math 223 uses a computer grading program called WebAssign for textbook assignments. Logging into WebAssign can only be done through the WebAssign Login link in your Math 223 D2L site.

Additional homework and/or quizzes may be assigned by instructors. Be sure to check with your instructor.

## TEXTBOOK

Math 223 covers chapters 12 - 20 of Multivariable Calculus; 6th edition; McCallum, Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, et al.; Wiley.

The Textbook and WebAssign access for homework are being delivered digitally via D2L through the Inclusive Access program.
