 2019-2020 College Catalog # MATH 240 Calculus III

Students will develop skills necessary to conclude the calculus sequence. The course includes vector calculus in both two- and three-dimensional space along with the classical theorems of Green, Stokes, and Gauss. It will also include partial derivatives and multiple integrals along with a number of appropriate applications. A graphing calculator and MATLAB, a computer algebra system, will be integral parts of the course.
