MATH 251/501–502 INFORMATION SHEET1 CourseTexas A&M University at Qatar Science Program / Mathematics Department Math 251/501–502, Fall 2011Engineering Mathematics III (3-0), Credit 3. The first part of this course covers three-dimensional analytic geometry and vectors.The second part deals with differential calculus of functions of several variables: partial and directional derivatives, gradient, andmultivariable optimization (max/min). The third part covers principles and applications of multiple integration—double and tripleintegrals in rectangular, polar, cylindrical, spherical, and generalized coordinates. The fourth part deals with vector calculus—line andsurface integrals and the principal theorems associated with them. The class meets three times a week in lecture. (There is no recitationor computer laboratory.)

This is a third engineering math course. It follows single variable differential and integral calculus.2. In addition to hand (paper-and-pencil) techniques, you may use a TI-Nspire CAS Handheld calculator, provided to you byTAMUQ ITS. In this regard, stop by my QENG 171 office as soon as possible to obtain the latest version of the TNS-CASoperating system (3.1.0.392). Full sets of hand and calculator videos illustrating Calculus 3 problems are available for you.3. Please be on time to class. Make sure that you have read the relevant sections in the textbook beforehand.4. Make-ups for exams will be given only in the case of absenses authorized under University Regulations.5. Here is information regarding in-class exams and the final exam. You may use your TI-Nspire CAS Handheld in Press-To-Testmode. This allows you to use the built-in operating system only. It prevents you from accessing any files that you may have onyour calculator. Additionally, there will be multiple versions of exams in each section. These measures forcibly prevent cheating.• Exam 1: Thursday, 22/Sep/2011; QENG 209; covers Chapter 11; worth 20% of your grade.• Exam 2: Thursday, 13/Oct/2011; QENG 209; covers Chapter 12; worth 20% of your grade.• Exam 3: Thursday, 17/Nov/2011; QENG 209; covers Chapter 13; worth 20% of your grade.• Exam 4: Sunday, 11/Dec/2011; QENG 209; covers Chapter 14; worth 20% of your grade.• Final Exam (Section 501): Wednesday, 14/Dec/2011, 8:00–10:00 am; QENG 209; comprehensive; 20% of your grade.• Final Exam (Section 502): Thursday, 15/Dec/2011, 8:00–10:00 am; QENG 209; comprehensive; 20% of your grade.6. Selected problems from your textbook will be assigned but not graded. See the web for details. It is imperative that you spendtime working these problems. When you have questions, please ask for help.7. Lectures for each section covered in the textbook are provided via the web. This material is copyrighted. I grant you permissionto make ONE copy of each document for your personal use.8. At all times, I expect you to be prepared and to work hard; you can expect the same from me. Each student will be judged on theindividual merit of his or her own work.9. Read the Hot Topics of the day on our class web page. This is the primary means of communication outside of lecture.7 Miscellany• The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rightsprotection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities beguaranteed a learning environment that provides for a reasonable accomodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have adisability requiring an accomodation, please contact Disability Services in Cain Hall on the Texas A&M College Station campus,Room B118, or call 1-979-845-1637 (or such other number as directed by QENG).• “An Aggie does not lie, cheat, or steal or tolerate those who do.” You are referred to the Honor Council Rules and Procedures onthe Web at http://www.tamu.edu/aggiehonor.• At Texas A&M University at Qatar, the OASIS facilitates activities related to the learning of core course component concepts andapplications within the common body of knowledge expected of engineering graduates. Focus areas within this definition arewriting, math, and science. Ancillary skills, such as applied technology, college success strategies, multi-media applications,business and personal communication, computer-assisted language learning, career-building activities, and peer interaction arealso part of the mission of the center as they are appropriate to the total professional development of engineering graduates. Thedepartment’s tutors work with students both on-site and online (writing only) and the offices are located in suite 310, near thelibrary. Tutoring hours of operation are: weekdays 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM on-site, and 8:00 PM until 12 AM online, and Saturdays3:00 to 6:00 PM. Please make appointments from the homepage:
