General Information


I. Catalog Course Description

Prerequisites: MATH182 or equivalent or consent of instructor

Covers infinite series, vectors, differential and integral calculus of functions of several variables, and introduction to vector analysis.


II. Course Objectives and Linkage to General Education Program

The information in the parentheses after a course objective refers to the specific general education (GE) learning outcome that the objective meets. Objectives without this information are not linked to WNC’s general education program.

Students who pass this course must demonstrate they can:

  • Apply the techniques of differential and integral calculus to scalar functions of several variables. (GE 1, GE 3)
  • Apply the techniques of elementary vector analysis to solve problems in two and three dimensions. (GE 1, GE 3)
  • Apply the techniques of vector calculus to solve problems in two and three dimensions. (GE 1, GE 3)

III. Topics

Scalar functions of several variables. Vector analysis, and vector-valued functions of one and several variables. Differential and integral calculus in two and three dimensions.
