MAT-331 Calculus III

Calculus III is an intensive, higher-level course in mathematics that builds on Calculus II. The course aims at serving the needs of a wide student audience, including students in engineering, mathematics, the physical and life sciences, and economics. It is constructed around multiple focal points with the intention of helping students become creative and efficient problem solvers.

The course uses technology as a means of discovery for numerical, graphical and analytical solutions to problems. It also emphasizes communication skills and requires students to interpret, describe, discuss, justify and conjecture as they search for solutions to problems. Real-life applications provide links with students' everyday life. Topics covered include indeterminate forms, vector algebra and calculus in the plane and 3-space, analytic space geometry, multivariable functions, partial derivatives, gradients and real-world problems.

Advisory: It is advisable to have knowledge equivalent to MAT 231 Calculus I and MAT 232 Calculus II in order to succeed in this course. Students are responsible for making sure they have this knowledge.
