MATH 211 - Multivariable Calculus


This course is offered every semester on a rotating basis. I last taught the class in the Fall of 2016.


Vectors and 3-space; dot and cross product of vectors; differentiating and integrating functions of several variables; optimization; vector fields; line integrals; Fundamental theorem of line integrals; Green’s theorem; divergence and curl of vector fields.


The prerequisite for this course is a standard year-long single variable calculus sequence, e.g. Math 111 and Math 112. Students need a strong foundation in these courses to succeed.


Required reading is:

MultiVariable Calculus by J. Steward, Brooks/Cole, Cengage Learning, 2012. ISBN: 978-0-538-49787-9.
