MATH 106(F) Multivariable Calculus (Q)
Applications of calculus in mathematics, science, economics, psychology, the social sciences, involve several variables. This course extends calculus to several variables: vectors, partial derivatives and multiple integrals. The goal of the course is Stokes Theorem, a deep and profound generalization of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. The difference between this course and Mathematics 105 is that Mathematics 105 covers infinite series instead of Stokes Theorem. Students with the equivalent of BC 3 or higher should enroll in Mathematics 106, as well as students who have taken the equivalent of an integral calculus and who have already been exposed to infinite series. For further clarification as to whether or not Mathematics 105 or Mathematics 106 is appropriate, please consult a member of the math/stat department. Mathematics 106 satisfies any Mathematics 105 prerequisite. Credit will not be given for both Mathematics 105 and Mathematics 106. Format: lecture. Evaluation will be based primarily on homework, quizzes, and/or exams. Prerequisites: BC 3 or higher or integral calculus with infinite series. No enrollment limit (expected: 45).
