Calculus III

Course Description

This course, a continuation of MATH-172, Calculus II, completes the study of elementary calculus. Topics include polar equations, vectors and vector-valued functions, surfaces in space and functions of several variables, partial derivatives and multiple integrals, and topics from vector analysis. Applications will be considered throughout the course. Problems are approached from a variety of perspectives, including graphical, numerical, verbal, and algebraic. Computer software will be used extensively in class to gain a greater understanding of concepts as well as to consider non-routine problems. (Prerequisite: A grade of "C" or higher in MATH-172)
