Learning Outcome

This course is aimed at students majoring in mathematical and physical sciences, and engineering, and students minoring in mathematics or mathematical education. Calculus is the foundation for most of the mathematics studied at the university level. The mastery of calculus requires well-developed manipulative skills, clear conceptual understanding, and the ability to model phenomena in a variety of settings. Calculus of several variables extends the concepts of limit, integral, and derivative from one dimension to higher dimensional settings and is therefore fundamental for many fields of mathematics. This course contributes to all the expected learning outcomes of the Mathematics BS degree. For more detailed information visit the Math 314 Wiki page.
