MATH 283

Calculus III: Multivariable Calculus

5.0 hours lecture per week.
Associate Degree Applicable.
Prerequisite: MATH 265B (Calculus II) or equivalent with a grade of C or better.

Presents a study of differentiation and integration of multiple variable functions, parametric curves in two and three dimensions, optimization, line integrals, and the calculus of vector fields. Specific topics include vector functions, partial derivatives, surfaces, parametric equations, multiple integrals (with rectangular, polar, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates), and vector calculus (including line integrals, flux integrals, Greens Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and Stokes Theorem). Every topic will be taught geometrically, numerically, and algebraically.

NOTE: The Course Outline of Record and Student Learning Outcomes for all courses can be found in Curricunet.

You may view any current course outline or program offered at Cuesta College. You do not need a login or password. Simply use the search option just under the login area. You can search for all courses/programs listed under a department or choose a specific course/program. Your search may generate multiple versions of a course. You want to view the written record (WR) for the version that is labeled “active”. Anything that is “pending” could be a small (minor) or large (major) modification to the existing course, but it has not been approved yet.

To view student learning outcomes for the course, search for the course you are interested in (as explained above). Once your course comes up, there will be two or three icons. One icon will look like a binder (white page with book edge on the left). Click on this icon. It will give the list of the current student learning outcomes for the course.
