MATH 2415
Calculus III

Western Texas College

1. Basic Course Information
1. Course Description:  Advanced topics in calculus, including vectors and vector-valued functions, partial differentiation, Lagrange multipliers, multiple integrals, and Jacobians; application of the line integral, including Greeen’s Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and Stoke’s Stokes’ Theorem.
2. Any required prerequisites:  Students must make a C or better in MATH 2414 Calculus II.
3. Online course content is administered through the college’s learning management system (LMS), Moodle, also called eCampus.  A link to eCampus can be found on my.wtc.edu and to Moodle (the big M with a graduation cap) on the college’s home page, www.wtc.edu.
2. Student Learning Outcomes. Upon successful completion of the course the student will:
1. Perform calculus operations on vector‐valued functions, including derivatives, integrals, curvature, displacement, velocity, acceleration, and torsion.
2. Perform calculus operations on functions of several variables, including partial derivatives, directional derivatives, and multiple integrals.
3. Find extrema and tangent planes.
4. Solve problems using the Fundamental Theorem of Line Integrals, Green's Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and Stokes' Theorem.
5. Apply the computational and conceptual principles of calculus to the solutions of real-world problems.
3. Testing Requirements
1. The Midterm exam and the Final exam must be proctored by an approved testing organization.  (Ask you instructor for more details.)
2. Students are NOT allowed to use their book or notes of any kind while taking their proctored Midterm and Final exams.
3. All quizzes and exams are timed.
4. Students are allowed to use a calculator.  However, the TI-89, TI-Inspire with CAS or any other calculator with CAS capability are not permitted.
