All Students should be aware that the Department of Mathematical Sciences takes the NJIT Honor code very seriously and enforces it strictly. This means there must not be any forms of plagiarism, i.e., copying of homework, class projects, or lab assignments, or any form of cheating in quizzes and exams. Under the Honor Code, students are obligated to report any such activities to the Instructor.
Mathematics 335002:
Vector AnalysIS
Spring 2007
Instructor: Prof.
Matveev
Textbook: Vector
Calculus, by P. C. Matthews, SpringerVerlag, ISBN: 3540761802
Grading
Policy: The final grade in this course will
be determined as follows:
☑ Quizzes: 

12% 
☑ Homework: 

12% 
☑ 2 Midterms: 

22%
each 
☑ Final Exam: 

32% 
P
note that the University Drop Date March
26, 2007
deadline will be strictly enforced.
Homework
Policy: At least one quiz will be given
each week. Homework is assigned once a week and is collected before the
following lecture. Late homework is not accepted; if you have to be absent from
class, consider submitting the homework early. Homework problem lists in the
syllabus are given as a guideline only; homework assignments will be handed out
or emailed at each class by the instructor.
Attendance and Participation: Students must attend all classes. Absences from class will inhibit your ability to fully participate in class discussions and problem solving sessions and, therefore, affect your grade. Tardiness to class is very disruptive to the instructor and students and will not be tolerated.
Makeup Exam Policy: There will be no makeup exams, except in rare situations where the student has a legitimate reason for missing an exam, including illness, death in the family, accident, requirement to appear in court, etc. The student must notify the Math office and the Instructor that he/she will miss an exam. In all cases, the student must present proof for missing the exam, e.g., a doctor's note, police report, court notice, etc., clearly stating the date AND times.
Cellular Phones: All cellular phones and beepers must be switched off during all class times.
