Course Overview:
The third level of calculus, often titled Multivariable calculus studies the implications of calculus in a 3-D space as opposed to the 2-D plane. The subject matter requires an extensive understanding of Calculus 1 and 2. Additionally, the students must, in a sense be able to see the 3-D objects in their mind and correctly determine what procedures to take.
Course highlights:
Understanding calculus to this degree greatly facilitated the learning of other complicated subject matters such as Statics and Dynamics.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
You must be prepared to devote numerous hours to study and practice, without which, you will have gaps in your understanding and as a result you may make mistakes.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
