COURSE PREREQUISITE:   Math 1180 (Precalculus) with a grade of C or better, or suitable
score on a placement or ACT test.  In addition, it is assumed that you have a solid knowledge of
trigonometry, which is taught at WMU in Math 1180.

TEXT :    Calculus with Early Vectors,  by Zenor (and others).    ISBN # 0-13-791203-X  is
needed if you want to order the text online.

SYLLABUS :   We will study of basics of differentiation and integration of vector functions. Even
if you have done some previous work in calculus, it is unlikely that you have seen the vector
approach – which should better prepare you for physics and engineering classes.

TECHNOLOGY:    It is assumed that you have a graphing calculator.  If you don’t already own
one, get a TI-89.  I will use the TI-89 for classroom demonstrations.  Professor Pence has provided
instruction in the use of calculators at: http://homepages.wmich.edu/~pence/MATH170-171.htm

the policies and procedures in the Undergraduate Catalog (pp. 278-283) that pertain to Academic
Honesty. These policies include cheating, fabrication, falsification and forgery, multiple submission,
plagiarism, complicity and computer misuse. If there is reason to believe you have been involved in
academic dishonesty, you will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct. You will be given the
opportunity to review the charge(s). If you believe you are not responsible, you will have the
opportunity for a hearing. You should consult with me if you are uncertain about an issue of academic
honesty prior to the submission of an assignment or test.
