Multivariable and Vector Calculus

Differential and integral calculus of functions of several variables and of vector fields. Topics include Euclidean, polar, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates; dot product, cross-product, equations of lines and planes; continuity, partial derivatives, directional derivatives, optimization in several variables; multiple integrals, iterated integrals, change of coordinates, Jacobians, general substitution rule; curves and surfaces, parametrizations, line integrals, surface integrals; gradient, circulation, flux divergence; conservative, solenoidal vector fields; scalar, vector potential; Green, Gauss, and Stokes theorems. Please note: Because MATH 242 is the final part of a three-semester calculus sequence, it should be taken as soon as possible after MATH 141.
