MATH221  Multivariable and Vector Calculus (General Education) This course is principally a study of the calculus of functions of two or more variables, but also includes a study of vectors, vectorvalued functions and their derivatives. The course covers limits, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, Stokes' Theorem, Green's Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and applications in physics. Credit cannot be granted for both this course and MATH219. (Prerequisite: C or better MATH173 or MATH182 or MATH182A or equivalent course.) Lecture 4 (Fall, Spring, Summer). 

MATH221H  Honors Multivariable and Vector Calculus (General Education) This course is an honors version of MATH221. It includes an introduction to vectors, surfaces, and multivariable functions. It covers limits, partial derivatives and differentiability, multiple integrals, Stokes’ Theorem, Green’s Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and applications. Unlike MATH221, students in this course will often be expected to learn elementary skills and concepts from their text so that inclass discussion can focus primarily on extending techniques, interpreting results, and exploring mathematical topics in greater depth; homework exercises and projects given in this class will require greater synthesis of concepts and skills, on average, than those in MATH221. Students earning credit for this course cannot earn credit for MATH219 or MATH221. (Prerequisites: C or better in MATH182 or MATH173 or MATH182A and Honors program status or at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA.) Lecture 4 (Fall).

Topics include linear transformations, Gaussian elimination, matrix arithmetic, determinants, vector spaces, linear independence, basis, null space, row space, and column space of a matrix, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, change of basis, similarity and diagonalization. Various applications are studied throughout the course. (Prerequisites: MATH190 or MATH200 or MATH219 or MATH220 or MATH221 or MATH221H or equivalent course.) Lecture 3 (Fall, Spring). 

MATH241H  Honors Linear Algebra This honors course introduces the basic concepts and techniques of linear algebra. Concepts are addressed at a higher level than the standard course in linear algebra, and the topic list is somewhat broader. Topics include linear independence and span, linear functions, solving systems of linear equations using Gaussian elimination, the arithmetic and algebra of matrices, basic properties and interpretation of determinants, vector spaces, the fundamental subspaces of a linear function, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, change of basis, similarity and diagonalization.

MATH221  Multivariable and Vector Calculus (General Education) This course is principally a study of the calculus of functions of two or more variables, but also includes a study of vectors, vectorvalued functions and their derivatives. The course covers limits, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, Stokes' Theorem, Green's Theorem, the Divergence Theorem, and applications in physics. Credit cannot be granted for both this course and MATH219. (Prerequisite: C or better MATH173 or MATH182 or MATH182A or equivalent course.) Lecture 4 (Fall, Spring, Summer).

Various applications are studied throughout the course. (Prerequisites: MATH190 or MATH200 or MATH219 or MATH220 or MATH221 or MATH221H or equivalent course.) Lecture 3 (Fall, Spring). 

MATH241H  Honors Linear Algebra This honors course introduces the basic concepts and techniques of linear algebra. Concepts are addressed at a higher level than the standard course in linear algebra, and the topic list is somewhat broader.
