See MATH 1552, 1553, 1554, 1564. Concludes the treatment of single variable calculus, and begins linear algebra; the linear basis of the multivariable theory. The first 1/3 of this course covers more advanced single variable calculus. The remaining 2/3 is an introduction to linear algebra, the theory of linear equations in several variables.

Prerequisites:

Course Text:

Thomas' *Calculus (Early Transcendentals)*, (13th Edition) Pearson; * Linear Algebra and its Applications* by David Lay, (5th Edition), Pearson, Inc. 2012 [referred to as Lay in the table below].
