Calculus and Analytic Geometry III

Course Code: MAC2313

Credit Hours: 4

Effective beginning: Fall 2020


Course Description:
This course includes the study of lines, planes and surfaces in space; functions of several variables; partial derivatives of functions of several variables; extrema of functions of two variables; iterated integrals using rectangular, polar, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates; differentiation, integration, and applications of vector-valued functions; vector fields and calculations of line integrals and flux integrals, the use of Green’s Theorem, Divergence Theorem, and Stoke’s Theorem. A “C” grade or higher must be earned to advance to a higher-level mathematics course or to satisfy part of the general education requirement in mathematics.
