# MATH 280 - Calculus III and Analytic Geometry

The following are the Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs) for MATH 280. A Student Learning Outcome is a measurable outcome statement about what a student will think, know, or be able to do as a result of an educational experience. Course Measurable Objectives focus more on course content, and can be considered to be smaller pieces that build up to the SLOs.

**Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)**

- Students can analytically describe the physical states of objects with mass traveling in three dimensions.
- Students can compute partial and directional derivatives for functions of several variables.
- Students can apply partial derivatives to optimization problems.
- Students can evaluate multiple integrals to compute volumes, surface areas, moments and centers of mass, flux, and work.

**Course Measurable Objectives (CMOs)**

- Plot points, graph cylinders and quadric surfaces, computer distances and give equations of lines and planes in three dimensional rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems.
- Perform vector operation, including linear combinations, dot and cross products and projections.
