Course Number & Name: MTH 221 Calculus with Analytic Geometry III
Credit Hours: 4.0 Contact Hours: 4.0 Lecture: 4.0 Lab: N/A Other: N/A
Course Description: This course is a continuation of MTH 122, covering the theory and applications of vector differential and integral Calculus. Topics include parametric curves, general vector fields, partial derivatives, vector differential operators, non-rectangular coordinate systems, multiple integrals, the change of variables theorems, and the vector integral theorems of Green, Gauss and Stokes.
General Education Goals: MTH 221 is affirmed in the following General Education Foundation Category: Quantitative Knowledge and Skills. The corresponding General Education Goal is as follows: Students will use appropriate mathematical and statistical concepts and operations to interpret data and to solve problems.
<!–Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- demonstrate knowledge of the fundamental concepts and theories from calculus;
- utilize various problem-solving and critical-thinking techniques to set up and solve applied problems in engineering, sciences, business and technology fields;
- communicate accurate mathematical terminology and notation in written and/or oral form in order to explain strategies to solve problems as well as to interpret found solutions; and
- use appropriate technology, such as graphing calculators and computer software, effectively as a tool to solve such problems as those described above.
