Course Title: Calculus 3

Course Credit: 4 s.h.

Text: Calculus 3 by Thomas,

Course Prereq: MATH 1572

Course Description: The course is an introduction to the study of calculus in three or more dimensions. The main concepts to be studied include the geometry of three dimensional space, vectors and vector-valued functions, functions of several variables, differentiation and integration of these functions, and applications. The computer will be used to assist this study.

Course Objectives: The goals for the course include:
· Developing an understanding of the fundamental concepts of vector-valued functions of one and several variables and scalar-valued functions of several variables, and their applications.
· Understanding the techniques and applications of derivatives, partial derivatives, and integrals of these kinds of functions, where appropriate, and their applications.
· Developing the ability to read mathematics with understanding and to write mathematics understandably.
