Spring 2008

Department of Mathematics

SUNY at Stony Brook

This course is the third semester in the Calculus sequence. We will develop the theory and practice of differentiation and integration of functions of several variables. This builds strongly on the calculus of 1 variable that you've had in previous calculus classes. There will be a balance of theory and computation, although formal proofs will not be emphasized.
