This course takes calculus from the two dimensional world of single variable functions into the three dimensional world, and beyond, of multivariable functions. Topics include vector geometry and the analytic geometry of lines, planes, and surfaces; calculus of curves in two and three dimensions, including arc length and curvature; calculus of scalar valued functions of several variables, including partial and directional derivatives, the gradient, the chain rule, Lagrange multipliers and optimization problems.
The main objective of this course is to provide students with a strong foundation of calculus. This pre-calculus course is designed in a way to prepare students to be successful in Calculus. In this course, students will learn different types of Functions and logarithms used in Algebra and Geometry. Besides, students will get a thorough understanding of Trigonometry and Trigonometric Functions including different terms.
Prerequisites: MATH 104. PHYS 104 is strongly recommended.
