Course objectives: The goal of the course Advanced Calculus and Numerical Methods - 21MAT21 is,

 To facilitate the students with a concrete foundation of integral calculus.
 To facilitate the students with a concrete foundation of vector calculus, partial differential equations, and numerical methods enabling them to acquire the knowledge of these mathematical tools.

Teaching-Learning Process (General Instructions):

These are sample Strategies; which teachers can use to accelerate the attainment of the various course outcomes.
1. In addition to the traditional lecture method, different types of innovative teaching methods may be adopted so that the delivered lessons shall develop students’ theoretical and applied mathematical skills. 
2. State the need for Mathematics with Engineering Studies and Provide real-life examples 
3. Support and guide the students for self-study. 
4. You will also be responsible for assigning homework, grading assignments and quizzes, and documenting students' progress 
5. Encourage the students for group learning to improve their creative and analytical skills
6. Show short related video lectures in the following ways:
● As an introduction to new topics (pre-lecture activity).
● As a revision of topics (post-lecture activity).
● As additional examples (post-lecture activity).
● As an additional material of challenging topics (pre and post-lecture activity).
● As a model solution of some exercises (post-lecture activity)

Course outcomes (Course Skills Set)

After successfully completing the course, the student will be able to understand the topics:
 Apply the concept of change of order of integration and change of variables to evaluate multiple integrals and their usage in computing the area and volume. 
 Illustrate the applications of multivariate calculus to understand the solenoidal and irrotational vectors and also exhibit the interdependence of line, surface, and volume integrals.
 Formulate physical problems to partial differential equations and to obtain solutions for standard practical PDE’s. 
 Apply the knowledge of numerical methods in modeling various physical and engineering phenomena. 
 Solve first-order ordinary differential equations arising in engineering problems.

Assessment Details (both CIE and SEE)

The weightage of Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) is 50% and for Semester End Exam (SEE) is 50%. The minimum passing mark for the CIE is 40% of the maximum marks (20 marks). A student shall be deemed to have satisfied the academic requirements and earned the credits allotted to each subject/ course if the student secures not less than 35% ( 18 Marks out of 50)in the semester-end examination(SEE), and a minimum of 40% (40 marks out of 100) in the sum total of the CIE (Continuous Internal Evaluation) and SEE (Semester End Examination) taken together

Continuous Internal Evaluation:

Three Unit Tests each of 20 Marks (duration 01 hour)
1. First test at the end of 5th week of the semester
2. Second test at the end of the 10th week of the semester
3. Third test at the end of the 15th week of the semester
Two assignments each of 10 Marks
4. First assignment at the end of 4th week of the semester
5. Second assignment at the end of 9th week of the semester
Group discussion/Seminar/quiz any one of three suitably planned to attain the COs and POs for 20 Marks (duration 01 hours)
6. At the end of the 13th week of the semester
The sum of three tests, two assignments, and quiz/seminar/group discussion will be out of 100 marks and will be scaled down to 50 marks (to have less stressed CIE, the portion of the syllabus should not be common /repeated for any of the methods of the CIE. Each method of CIE should have a different syllabus portion of the course). CIE methods /question paper is designed to attain the different levels of Bloom’s taxonomy as per the outcome defined for the course.

Semester End Examination:

Theory SEE will be conducted by University as per the scheduled timetable, with common question papers for the subject (duration 03 hours)
1. The question paper will have ten questions. Each question is set for 20 marks.
2. There will be 2 questions from each module. Each of the two questions under a module (with a maximum of 3 sub-questions), should have a mix of topics under that module.
The students have to answer 5 full questions, selecting one full question from each moduleeory have to answer 5 full questions, selecting one full question from each module
