Calculus and Analytical Geometry I, II, and III is a year-long sequence of courses that will provide a rigorous treatment of the procedures, concepts, and applications of differential and integral calculus, multi-dimensional space, series, introduction to differential equations, and concepts and procedures related to partial derivatives, and double integrals. This Fall, Winter, Spring sequence is appropriate for students who are planning to teach secondary mathematics or engage in further study in mathematics, science, or economics.
Calculus and Analytical Geometry III completes the year-long sequence. Spring quarter topics include introduction to multi-dimensional space, lines and planes in space, coordinate systems, series, concepts and procedures with partial derivatives and double integrals. We will engage with the content through multiple modes of inquiry and multiple (algebraic, graphical, numerical, and verbal) representations. Collaborative learning is emphasized. If you have questions about your readiness to take this class, please contact the faculty.
Though the course will taught remotely, collaborative learning will be a fundamental component of the course. Reliable internet access and a graphing calculator, or other graphing software, are required for the course. Students are encouraged to have a camera-enabled device, a small dry-erase board, and markers or the ability to use the whiteboard in Zoom. Students should expect 4 hours per week of synchronous meetings using Zoom and Canvas. Students will have access to alternatives to synchronous sessions if necessary.
This course is a standalone module in the Matter and Motion program. Contact the faculty to take this as a 4 credit module in that program.
Successful completion of Calculus I and II (differential and integral calculus)
Mathematics, Science, Economics, Education
A graphing calculator is strongly recommended for the course.
