Calculus III: 2012
–
13
Ladue Horton Watkins High School
Instructor:
Dr. John Pais
Overview:
This course is an introduction to the study of curves and surfaces in three dimensional Euclidean
space. For the first time in their mathematical development
students will acquire the tools
necessary to represent and analyze both the motion of particles and the forces acting on them in
the proper geometrical setting. In addition, this course will not only develop high level
mathematics skills, but also emphasiz
e problem solving techniques, examine the necessity of
mathematics as it relates to career goals, enable students to communicate mathematically, and
illustrate the connec
tion to real

world application.
Learning takes place through many types of activities
we engage in during each ninety

minute
period we meet. While mastery of formal objectives may be measured through tests, quizzes,
and projects, other important skills developed in class are not so easily measured in traditional
assessments. Students who
attend with the intent to learn will construct knowledge both
formally and informally. When the entire group comes to the classroom prepared to learn, an
environment conducive to growth is created.
Course Description:
Calculus III
is a continuation of the
material covered in AP Calculus BC. Topics covered include
vectors and curves in two and three dimensions, quadric surfaces, partial derivatives, extrema
(maxima and minima), Lagrange multipliers, vector fields in two and three dimensions, double
and trip
le integrals, Green’s Theorem, Stokes Theorem, Divergence Theorem, and differential
equations. Graphing calculators and
MAPLE®
software are used throughout the course. It is
recommended that students have a grade of B or better in AP Calculus BC before enr
olling in the
course.
Methods of Instruction:
Class time is spent primarily in an interactive lecture/discussion/practice problem

solving format
which includes question and answer sessions, class discussion, interactive visual

ization, guided
practice,
note taking, and seat work.
Classroom Expectations:
1. Be in your assigned seat, prepared and ready to work, when the bell rings.
2. Talk when it is appropriate

do not interrupt someone else who is speaking.
3. Follow directions the first time they ar
e given.
4. Always respect other people, property, and yourself.
5. Cell phones should be turned off during the school day. Students should not listen to music
during class.
Grades:
Grades are determined on total points earned. Points are earned throug
h tests, quizzes, warm

ups, homework checks, homework quizzes, projects, and in

class activities. This is a yearlong
course and so a final exam is given at the end of each semester worth twenty percent of the
semester grade.

Homework:
In order to receive credi
t for a homework check, the assignment should be complete, the
problems written out, and all the necessary work shown. If the student does not know how to do
a problem, something should still be written for the problem to show that the problem was
attempt
ed. All work should be done neatly and kept in each student’s math notebook.
Incomplete homework will receive half credit or less.
Homework will also be checked through homework quizzes. Unannounced homework quizzes
will be given frequently, so it is
very important to keep up with daily homework.
Materials for Class and Website:
Each class day students should bring their math notebook or folder, pencils or pens, paper,
assignments, and a calculator. Course materials and activities will be posted on (li
nked to) the
class website located at
http://drpcourses.blogspot.com/
.
It is a
requirement of the course that the website
be checked often
, since all course
in
formation will be posted there.
Attendance/Ta
rdies:
The school policy will be followed regarding absences and tardies (see your student planner).
Please remember that, according to district policy, absences not cleared within twenty four hours
of the absence are unexcused. Unexcused absences will
result in a zero for the assignments and
activities for that day.
Makeup Work Due to Absence:
A one week deadline is given to makeup all missed assignments and tests. Tests may be made
up during Academic Lab. If assignments, quizzes, and tests are not com
pleted within one week
of an absence, students will receive a zero. If the absence has been an extended absence due to
special circumstances, please see me and we’ll make appropriate arrangements. Please
remember that, according to district policy, you w
ill not be allowed credit for any work due or
assigned on t
he day of an unexcused absence.
Communication:
I look forward to an exciting and successful school year! At any time if you have any questions
or concerns, please ask me. I am usually available in
the math office for help before or after
school and during Academic Lab. In addition, the best way to reach me at school is via e

Objective

Learning Activity
Material from the supplementary textbook (Murray) provides students with perspective on how
mathematicians thought about curvature over 100 years ago!
Interestingly, this point of view is a
natural continuation of the material learned in their previous calculus course.
This classical
perspective is in contrast to the modern differential geometric perspective they will learn in
Calculus III.

of Gradient, Divergence, and Curl
Local
Objective
Apply the gradient, divergence, and curl
appropriately in physical applications.
Use the properties of the gradient to determine temperature gradients.
Use the properties of the gradient to show that conservative fields, e.g., gravitational
fields, are gradients of scalar functions.

use Maxwell's Equations for electromagnetic fields.
Learning Activity
The supplementary textbook (Fleisch) provides an excellent online collection of podcasts,
problems, and
solutions, which corresponds quite nicely to the current learning activity since it is
designed for the student to gain experience using mathematics (already learned) in physical
applications. At this stage of vector calculus the student is prepared to add
