Course Information

Course Description

Early introduction of vectors, linear algebra, multivariable calculus. Vector fields, line and surface integrals. Prerequisites: C or better in MATH112 or MATH122.

Student Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of the class students will be able to:

  1. identify the differences between single and multivariate differential/integral calculus and when applicable explain the consequences.
  2. interpret the operators of multivariate differential/integral calculus and use them to solve problems associated with summation, extreme values, constrained optimization and instantaneous rates of change.
  3. list the operators of vector analysis, apply them to solve problems related to the fundamental theorem of calculus for vector--valued multivariate function and justify their combination with physical interpretations.

  * Wolfram's Handson Mathematica Tutorial 
    (Level: Novice, Goal: Up through "Basic Graphics)"
  * MATH224 Specific Tutorial: Function instantiation, plot and manipulate commands 
    (Level: Novice to Intermediate, Goal: Up through 10:08) 
     * Here is the associated Mathematica notebook, for you to follow along.
     * Do not worry about the second part yet, i.e. contour plot, solve command and graphics options. 
       You can take a look if you want. The degree of difficulty increases and if it feels stressful 
       then stop. We will fold those commands in over time.   
     * Liam, the maker of the video was told to speak slowly enough 
       so that the video could be played at double-speed. Feel free to do this. 
     * Please take notes as you go through the video. We will ask you about insights 
       you had along the way and compile these for use in future experiences.
