Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations
This course in advanced mathematics includes core components of multivariable calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and statistics. The use of mathematical software (Matlab), as well as TI-89 graphing calculators, is emphasized. Satisfactory completion of an assigned final project is required. The course is also designed to complement the Advanced Math Science Research course; for those students enrolled in both, the two courses can be interdisciplinary, if so desired, focusing on the area of mathematics that students often encounter in their research projects. The most common area is statistics, but other mathematical strands can be developed as needed. Completion of an individualized curriculum satisfies the project requirement of this course. A TI-89 graphing calculator is required.
Prerequisite: Advanced Placement Calculus BC and permission of the department
